THE DAY WE WENT WAS EXTREMELY HOT, THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH SEATS IN AND AROUND THE SHOPPING MALL. THEY HAD VERY LITTLE OVER COVER AREAS TO KEEP OUT OF THE SUN, ALOT OF PEOPLE WHO TOOK THE WAIKELE OUTLET SHOPPING SHUTTLE WANTED TO LEAVE A LOT EARLIER, THE DROP OFF AND PICK UP TIME ALLOWED US 5 HOURS SHOPPING AND THAT WAS FAR TOOOO LONG. EVERYONE WANTED TO LEAVE AFTER 3.5 HOURS, MY HUSBAND GOT HEAT STROKE BECAUSE WE WAITED TOO LONG THE SHUTTLE AND THERE WAS ZERO SHAD TO SIT IN.
This outlet mall is well worth a visit if you love to shop. There is a good variety of stores, friendly staff in the stores, and great prices. The shuttle service drivers aren't especially friendly, nor are the staff who count guests on and off the buses and explain the return journey process - fortunately, the shuttle service is just transport and it is clean and comfortable which is the main thing. I took the 1020 shuttle from Waikiki and returned at 1400. This was a little rushed and it would be easy to spend a little longer at the mall - the journey takes about 30 minutes each way.
This was so great. Picked up in a large coach and then stop offs on the way for other passengers. Its about a 30 minute ride to the outlet stores. You then go with your voucher to a kiosk and adivse what time you want to leave. We chose 3pm but actually wished we had left earlier the 9.00am shuttle and left at 4.00pm we used the 10.00am shuttle and with the stops on the way cuts down the time. We didn't get into all the stores as we ran out of time. The bus driver on the way back gave a run down and explained lots to us about the local area and other things we past so we got a mini tour as well and he was so funny, he had the whole bus in fits of laughter. The shuttle was a large comfortable airconditioned coach. And the price of this trip was great value. The bus driver will ask for a tip but hey he told us so much about the area we obliged. His service was outstanding.
This tour didnt reach my ecpectations....was kind a dissapointed.... Not much time to spend on each stop just more on talking / history of hawaii more....plus the turtle island so many rules u cant go near wd them like 10foot away..very small island....nasty restroom....far from the place we swim...
