5.0 out of 5 stars Right on time May 6 2010
Excellent condition. I would say it was brand new.
It took I while to arrive (15 days) but it arrived just on time for my flight.

Good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purchased for its cover, kept for its contents. June 8 2010
By A. Marton - Published on Amazon.com
My husband and I purchased this in preparation for our honeymoon to Kauai and Maui. It was our first time visiting Hawaii, so we needed a lot of background to select what islands we wanted to split our time between. The itineraries LP provided helped us narrow it down based on our planned activities (snorkeling, hiking and camping). The text integrates a healthy dose of trivia with each bit of logistics, which kept the drives especially interesting. The food recommendations managed to peg some real gems (such as the affordable and delicious pizzeria in the generally unaffordable town of Wailea (Maui), the surprisingly delicious and frequently visited Monico's Taqueria in Wailua (Kauai), and the very fresh Koloa Fish Market (Kauai). The lodging recommendations were reliable, though we booked too late to stay in most of the small hotels and cottages ("top picks") and mostly split our time between camping and staying at large resorts. We relied heavily on the guidebook's descriptions to decide which beaches to hit and were happy with the comments on water safety and snorkeling suggestions (we even managed to see sea turtles!).

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid Kindle edition March 2 2011
By CincoDeCuatro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I rely a lot on Lonely Planet guides, and I'm sure the printed version of this book is fine. But the Kindle edition for this book is a big disappointment. I downloaded it to the Kindle app on my iPhone. The table of contents is an incomprehensible list of subsection headings, not divided by chapter -- so, for example, if you're looking for a list of places to stay in Maui, there is no obvious way to find this information. And the chapters themselves contain no maps or other graphics, just page after page of type without clear headings. It's a shame they didn't just copy the printed version, page for page, leaving nothing out, including graphics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but there is a lot to cover in this one book... Sept. 27 2007
By R S Cobblestone - Published on Amazon.com
I can't help but look at a Hawaii visitor guide and check out whether my favorite eateries, locations, and activities are included. This one has a lot, but it covers all the Hawaiian Islands that visitors may, well, visit! That's a lot of material for one book to cover if its intent is to be complete. There are island-specific books that give more info (for example, the "revealed" series), but this one is darn good. It certainly focuses more on the activities for the low budget traveler than most do.

I know Oahu better than the other islands, so how accurate is Lonely Planet's Hawaii? It's pretty good. There are so many eateries in Honolulu than many are not included. Maybe it's good that you will be steered away from my favorites! Seriously, I like The Shack in Hawaii Kai, Island Manapua in Manoa, and Volcano Joe's Island Bistro across from the UH campus for some delightful vegetarian [EDIT: Volcano Joe's is no more...]. There's the Xcel outlet store in Haleiva, BBQ in Wahiawa, super diving off Makaha, and a less exploited trail and waterfall in Lyon Arboretum, right next to the heavily-used Manoa Falls trail.

There were some favorites included. Willows is a buffet treat in Makiki, Deep Ecology in Haleiwa is a very pleasant and knowledgeable dive shop, and the Honolulu Zoo, although okay as zoos go, has its Wildest Show in Town summer music series every week (only a $2 donation requested... cheapest deal in Waikiki).

This isn't a bad choice for a guide book if you are only going to take one book. Nothing beats asking a local, however. Be friendly, and show aloha to the residents and to our special places. Don't litter, and pass a site by if it looks too crowded. There are plenty of things to see and do.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great guide Feb. 6 2010
By Matthew Crnkovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of LP wherever I go--the letdowns are few and far between. According to my bookshelf, this was my 10th guide purchased/used and it continued to live up to its reputation. If I remember right, few accommodations were listed in the Big Island's Puna district, so I had to take some big chances there. Otherwise, it contained all I needed to know and really helped me through the trip. The few disappointments I had were entirely my own (such as not checking distances between cities or hotel and city).

LP always delivers... great info as always! My girlfriend and I already booked a unique B&B we would not have found without the guide.
