Big Island Hawaii trip 5/2015 need help

My wife and I have never been to Hawaii. We are nearing retirement and want to take this dream trip 5/2015. We have accrued enough miles on AA and UA to use for the trip from Montreal (YUL) or Albany, NY (ALB).

I'm planning to arrive on a Friday, Leave the next Saturday (got to get back to work). Rather than island hop, and wasting more time in airports when we get there, we would rather travel to the big island and do a combination of mountain, volcano stuff and beach stuff.

I am considering both of us applying for Hyatt and Hilton cards this fall which would potentially give us 2 nights each for each card-8 total. Renting a car and maybe get Hotels in different parts of the island every few days.

I am in the early stages of planning this trip. For others that have been there how would you maximize the fun for this trip?

Thanks in advance.
