There is no comparison.
Hawaii isn't in any way an attractive destination for travellers.
Being part of the US empire as it is Hawaii is beset with rampant over-development, bad food and worse attitudes-give it a miss.
I'd take Fiji over the Cooks-bigger place/a lot more to see & do/friendlier people and much much better food.

Well, Fiji does claim to have the friendliest people in the world. :)

It's been 15 years since I went to either Fiji or Hawaii, but the big island (Hawaii island) has some very diverse scenery and is totally different to Oahu.

I'd probably pick Fiji as well though. I haven't been to the Cooks though.
