We are staying at the Ihilani on the west side and are hoping to eat at good local places if possible rather than expensive resort food. If any of the Marriott's restaurants are really worth the price I'd like to know that too. We'll go to Honalulu and Waikiki for one day, Pearl Harbor and Hanauma Bay for a day each too, but otherwise will mostly be on the west side.
Also plan to do the shrimp trucks, the KCC Farmers Market, shave ice at Matsumoto. Traveling with a 14 year old boy who has big appetite but not too discriminating tastes. I know Hawaii is expensive but hoping to get away with spending $10-15 each on lunches and $40 apiece on dinners (no alcohol or dessert). Can you tell I am cheap? Yes I am staying at expensive resort but got a screaming deal! Is this possible without eating garbage (aka franchise fast food)?
