This resort area has everything you need for a great vacation. The weather is amazing here in January. The two golf courses are great but especially the Beach Course hole 7 with amazing views of the ocean and coast line. Grocery stores were a bit pricy within the resort but we found a great store in Mauna Lani with much... More

The only thing I can say negative about this hotel is the distance it is from Kona and the airport but that is also a good thing! This place gives you the Hawaii feel that you cannot get from Waikiki beach. The resort is isolated in the middle of an old lava field so no real noise except the waves.... More

We reserved an ocean view room. When we went to our room, 1/2 of the view was the building and the rest was overlooking another building. Normally an ocean view means an unobstructed vies of the ocean. We called and they were helpful (for on $25 more a night, we got what we consider an ocean view. Then, one day,... More

If you have a rental car or are the type to just stay on the resort, this is the place to stay. Very spread out though and lots of walking from place to place and to self park. They do have a tram and boats in the afternoon to taxi you around, but by the time you wait you may... More

The beds were quite comfortable at this hotel. We had a double room with partial ocean view and could see into the pool area. The pool is open 24hrs a day and the location has its own beach area. The beach area was clean with plenty of chairs to sit and sunbathe or head toward the poolside area and claim... More

The pools and lagoon activities were great family experiences. Loved the views from everywhere on the resort. The room was very nice in the Ocean Tower and service was good. Stop and shop for food before entering resort, especially snacks and drinks. The options are limited and not very numerous at any given time of day. Food value is also... More

We actually stayed at the Hilton Bay Club which is a timeshare unit that's part of the Waikoloa Beach Resort. We were very pleased with the unit even though you could hear the footsteps of the people above us, otherwise, the rest of the unit was well insulated from the noise. I would definitely stay at this place again or... More

I have stayed at the Waikoloa Beach Resort a few times for vacations. The resort is large, but easy to get around with the boats and trains which transport guests all around. With all the restaurant and shops, you do not need to leave the resort. Room accommodations vary a lot, but there a lot of choices for singles, couples,... More

Wonderful for kids (of most ages), and Dolphin Quest is not to be missed (unless you've failed to make reservations). The pools and slides are really fun, but ocean swimming is in the seemingly man-made lagoon only, which is still quite nice. Not the most authentic Hawai'i experience, as there is constant hustle and bustle and looking for a lounge... More
