    Wonderful information, but needs reorganizing

    0 4/5 stephanie c (oak park, ca United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Paperback) I just got back from two weeks on the big island and was able to explore every wonderful nook and cranny with the help of this book. It is so chock full of information about cool, hidden places, restaurants, swimming holes, etc. But for the love of Pete - can they organize it by area, not by activity. I can't tell you how many times I flipped through that book trying to find something I had previously read and couldn't remember whether it was in Sights, Beaches, Activities or Adventures - it's maddening! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 27, 2014

    Great book!! Check out the app for iPhone and Android first though.

    0 5/5 Matt Clark - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Kindle Edition) The book is about as good as guide books get. Personally I used the Kindle version of the book on my iPad and then downloaded the app to my phone for $7-8, which we used constantly on the road. I would say you could easily get away with JUST THE APP, but the book has far more info. I would also say, spring for the app whether you buy the book or not because it has GPS maps whether you have an internet connection or not and we constantly needed to look at exactly where we were when trying to find remote beaches and such. Seriously, buy the freaking app. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 12, 2014

This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Paperback) My husband and I traveled to the Big Island at the end of January 2014. It was our second trip to the island so even though we were familiar with it, this book was a huge help in finding what to do, where to dine, and directions on how to get there. A must have if you are traveling to the Big Island! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 9, 2014

    This book is all you'll need

    We bought this book based on it's good reviews on Amazon. I read it practically cover-to-cover before we left on our trip which I highly recommend doing. There is SO MUCH information here, from the hiking descriptions we were looking for to snorkeling and surfing info (snorkeling: next visit!) to getting around (drive times: longer than you'd expect unless you read them here first), a glossary (where the language came from, what common words mean and how to pronounce them) and even some history, which we don't usually find too interesting but here, it was.We're the type that likes to be prepared when we go somewhere new, finding Big Island info online was overwhelming - where to start and what to believe? After reading this one book, we felt prepared. After visiting and finding our way around the whole island with ease, we felt this book was worth it's weight in Macadamia Nuts.Recommendation: Buy it and if you can't read the whole thing at least browse it before you go so... 5/5 Mrs. Magpie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    About the maps and my tip on the best mac nuts on the island

    This book has lots of good maps and a little bit of everything you need to know for the Big Island. This new Foder's Big Island travel book is going with me on my 2nd trip to the big island and I'm pretty picky about which book goes in my carry on with me. This one foots the bill! It's a perfect size (5"x8") and doesn't take up much space in my bag.This book is packed full of information and really well-done full-color maps throughout the book (along with a full-sized fold-out map*). The maps in the book are very clear to follow with numbered dots that correspond to a list of the location names that are evaluated along the edge of the map. The text pages then describe each of the numbered locations in detail and orange stars for location that are Foder's Choice and black stars for locations that are highly recommended.Hotel and Resaurant prices are categorized from a single dollar sign ($) to four dollar signs ($$$$), yet no specific rates are given, so you're... 5/5 Caliaha "Caliaha" (Oregon United States) - See all my reviews, October 28, 2012

    Information is top notch, cheaper paper gives a downgrade

    When making a selection for a travel book, it is 95% presentation for me. I do not need to buy any books with all of the information on the internet, but when planning a special vacation, I want to be surrounded by information in a manner that adds to the ambiance of the trip preparation. The older travel books had high gloss pages and pictures that knocked your eyes out. This current version of The Big Island is the cheaper version with pages that are low gloss and pictures that seems somewhat washed out. It does nothing to add to the experience and excitement of planning that once in a lifetime vacation.On the positive side the information is excellent. By creating a separate book just for the Big Island, Fodor's has improved their selected locations and even has some day trip plans summarized. The beach descriptions are very well done and leave not much to chance. Out of the way places are now explained in greater detail, especially on the Hilo and South sides of... 4/5 Burgmicester (Pittsburgh) - See all my reviews, November 17, 2012
