We usually go to Mexico for vacations and we love the swim-up bars, and the drink-service on the beaches and at the pools. We want to have something similar where we can just lounge around and still order and drink alcoholic drinks. In Hawaii it seems that pools and swim-up bars are much less common, as the focus is on the beach. The problem is that the beaches don't allow alcohol.
The basic question is, what's the best way to get that Mexico experience in Hawaii? Do some hotels with better pools allow non-guests to enter their pool areas, since you'll be paying for the drinks anyway? Is there an area on the beach with loungers that can actually serve drinks? We're currently planning on staying at the Trump because of the wonderful ratings, but the pool there is very small and most likely won't be an option for relaxing.
