I'm giving the 2011 edition 4 or 5 stars. My library got this version, so I thought I'd upgrade. Not so much. I generally respect fodor's, but it doesn't seem like they even tried. The prices for every attraction I knew of were wrong; they suggested you go to Honolulu's Borders store; and without looking for problems, three blatant contradictions jumped out where they listed different times or prices for the same event or attraction. Save your money and get a cheaper 2011 guide for now. 2011 is ...more

I usually get one of those "insider guides" or a lonely planet travel guide when I am heading somewhere. I grabbed this one because it was the most current guidebook. I visited three islands and it was actually more helpful than I thought it would be - especially since I had already been on two of those islands.

A great book for a first timer to Hawaii - but only if you are visiting multiple islands. I'd stick with the lonely planet version of the particular island you are visiting otherwise.

Currently planning a vacation to Hawaii, and this book was great from the very beginning. Up front it offers a handy table to choose your island: are you interested in beaches, nightclubs, golf, scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, etc.? Each island is rated for how much of each activity it has. That helped me immediately narrow my focus to Kauai and the Big Island.

Lots of useful, practical information from people who have been there. This is invaluable.

2015 edition - Read sections for Maui and Kauai.

Good restaurants that they selected for where we stayed in Lahaina and Poipu. Enough pictures to hold your attention and the sites selected were great. Only wished for Kauai that there were a little more details for hidden gem beaches - you need to read Kauai Revealed for that.

Fodor's is your typical vacation destination overview and this edition featuring some information about each island was a great way to see them at a glance and narrow down some of our choices as first time visitors.

so far, i'm finding that fodor's is better than other guide books i've read. the voice is dry and there aren't many pictures, but everything i read is immediately relevant and useful, and something about it instills confidence that i'll pick the best place to eat or the best kayak rental...
Can I go now?

Bought this to help plan my trip to Oahu. As usual, very helpful book. I highly recommend Fodor's for trip planning.

Mine is 2009. It is huge, covers all the islands, and has information on tours. It's a good reference but too big to take with.

I read (truthfully - scanned) this book to find out information about different hotels on the islands. I will more than like re-read it in a different light when I actually go to Hawaii.
