Help : Big island Kona, *resort, 7/19/13~7/22/13

Resort fees are prevalent in certain zones. Keep in mind that some hotels charge excessive resort fees which you may be unable to dispute as Priceline now states on their website that these fees are your responsibility.

I am biding through your priceline link.
And I edited my post in accordance with your reply, but I can't understand your form all.

I think you are using the Bidding Assistance Form. The Posting Guidelines for Failed Bid Postings is a thumbtacked post in the Posting Guidelines forum near the top of our homepage. I don't like to post a link because I want you to be able to find it in the future.

Waikoloa is NOT a free re-bid although it can usually be used as one since rates are higher in that zone. Please read the explanation of free re-bidding in our Hotel FAQ.

I think you are just bidding too early.

In the future, please only post rates directly from the hotel website.

I would wait until April 1st to bid again.

Please continue to bid through our link to Priceline and do not bid through a Priceline email.
Please place all of your Priceline bids through our Priceline link.
Please check rates at Hotwire and make your bookings through our Hotwire link.
