Vacation at a 4-star resort on the Big Island of Hawaii for $169 per night through Dec. 20, including Thanksgiving. Rates in peak season are as much as $319 nightly.
Upgrade to a room with a full ocean view for $30 more per night.
Unlike many resorts on the island, the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa sits on the sunny Kohala Coast, a safe spot for swimming on Hawaii.
Resort highlights also include a sand-bottomed infinity pool and an on-site luau. Across the street are the open-air Kings' Shops while the Queens' Marketplace -- with more stores and restaurants -- is a half mile away.
Note: A $25 nightly resort fee covers daily self-parking and Internet access.
Travelzoo Tip: Search airfare to Honolulu (below) and look for an inter-island flight to Kona, often available for less than $150 roundtrip.
