Aloha and Welcome to 808 Reviews

808 Reviews is a collection of articles, editorials, and reviews written specifically to help you get the most out of your Hawaiian vacation. Whether you have been here before and consider yourself ‘kama’aina’ or if this is your first trip to the islands, 808 Reviews is your single source for information about restaurants, activities, shopping, sightseeing, and everything there is to do in Hawaii.

We know how challenging it can be to make vacations plans – especially if the culture is a little different than what you are used to. While the Hawaiian culture is different from the mainland, there are some similarities. What you really need is a local expert to show you around. Someone who knows the best places to eat, the best places to shop, the best beaches and the secret surf spots. You also need someone willing to share this information with you.

808 Reviews is your local connection to the Hawaiian Islands. We are local writers with first hand experience with the restaurants, activities, stores, and services we write about. Some of us have lived on the mainland and moved here after falling in love with island life, others have never left the island on which they were born. But we all have one thing in common – we love Hawaii and we want to share our home with you. We know you depend on us to give you the inside scoop and we want to help you decide what to do and where to go before you get here.

If you’re already here, we can help you get the most out of your vacation by recommending places to go and things to do. We will let you know where you need to make advance reservations and where you can go with short notice.

As you read the reviews, make sure you check out the 808 Reviews Visitor’s Tips that accompany our major articles. The tips will help you save money, and get the most out of your vacation. This way, you can experience Hawaii like the locals do.

So visit us often and read up on the places you would like to go, the things you would like to do, and the places you would like to eat. We promise to do our best to provide you with up to date information that will help you get the most out of your visit to the islands.

And while you’re here, feel free to add your comments to any article you like. You can also send an email to most of the places we write about.

Mahalo and Aloha,
