The problem with taking video in Hawaii is the temptation to record everything, such is the beauty of the archipelago. We managed to edit down the footage I took on my most recent visit, which included time on Oahu, Lanai and the Big Island. I found three new properties to recommend and had illuminating stays at some old favorites. As always, I paid full price for the accommodations and did not declare my identity. For full reviews of all the resorts we evaluated, including two Four Seasons properties, a plush bed-and-breakfast and the thoroughly renovated Mauna Lani, go to my Hawaii trip report.
