    From White Sands to Denny's is not really worth it. Denny's is on Lewers Street. Probably at a casual pace, 15 minutes walk. There are plenty of better places to eat on the way.

    The White Sands Hotel is in a perfect location to walk to almost anywhere. We loved it so much we have booked to go there again this year.

    Hi, My Mom and I are coming in September 19-26, she's 82 and her trip to Hawaii is a birthday gift. I want to make this more than memorable for her. I know she'll love the hotel, we have a room with Kitchenette booked. What would be the prettiest view from the lanier?
