Great place to stay on the west side of the big island of Hawaii. Just 18 miles north of Kona Airport. Lots of shopping and restaurants in the resort. West side is the dry side of the island.

We stayed in the Makai tower rooms overlooking the dolphin area and they were wonderful rooms. The service at the resort is prompt and professional, and the boat & tram make for a fun and easy way to get around the expansive property.

No beach, sad dolphin display, overpriced everything. Didn't stay here just visited. Over crowded and 'manufactured'.

This is possibly the best beach on the big island. The views are amazing, and the water is perfectly blue. The water is awesome to snorkel in and possibly spot a turtle early in the morning.

We only stayed one night because we were attending an event at the hotel but we were very pleased. The room was comfortable with a lovely view. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was pleasant. Would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic place to stay - all big island activities are accessible by rental car. Very easy flights direct to Kona from west coast. Couple things we learned: Dive at the resort - Waikaloa Coast Divers are fantastic, cooperative with hotels and located at public beach in Waikaloa. Perfect for mixed experience groups; two members did certification including pool work in... More

With or without kids, this is perhaps the most fun resort on earth! As I like to tell people, when you have the choice of Monorail or Gondola Boat as your mode of transportation around the 62 acres, or to get from the Hotel Lobby to one of 1300 rooms, you know you're in a special place!
