This place epitomizes Hawaii. It's so big you take a shuttle train or boat to your building. Pools are everywhere. Our room overlooked the part of the resort with all the pool areas are located. And we can see the ocean beyond. What a fabulous view! And the Dolphin Encounter is right there. What could be better than that? I... More

This property is well designed and maintained. It is stunning. It has multiple pools and resturants and shopping. It has paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkeling on site. It has a kids zone and dolphin quest, which is a hands on educational program with Atlantic bottlenose dophins. The best choice for a resort on the island.

Staff were all friendly, and the condo was everything one needs. We overlooked the parking lot, although there was a water feature before that. If you go, request a condo facing west. The units are not on the beach, but west facing is far nicer than east facing units. Pool areas are bland. Pool bar costs are very high. We... More

Our second floor condo (at Kolea within the Waikoloa Beach Resort) was beautifully appointed, included an unobstructed view of A-Bay, was a 2 minute walk to the beach, and provided our family of four a wonderful week of luxury...pretending that we were rich! The location was great for all of our activities outside of the Waikoloa area as well due... More

I love this location. Not too far from Kona, yet gated with lots of resorts, a beach, time share's and condo's. The mall is a great amenity and all the local restaurants. There is a bus that takes you through out. This is a great choice for any vacation on this amazing island.

This place is like a Disneyland for kids which makes parents really happy. While kids are playing adults can relax. There are many pools. One has waterfalls and a large slide and there is another for younger children with multiple pools and small slides. There is a saltwater lagoon with a beach where you can snorkel, rent a SUP or...

Highly recommend! Stayed in a beautiful 3 bedroom condo with two other couples, visiting for a wedding. The beach resort pool & hot tub was clean, and pretty as a picture. Free coffee in the morning there too! The beach was lovely, very close by and home to sea turtles! Great water activities to enjoy also like snorkeling & paddle... More

We stayed in a condo at the Waikoloa Beach Villas last week that had a Hilton Pool Pass good for the stay of the condo included with the rental. I had been wanting to go to the Waikoloa HIlton when I first saw this property years ago in a magazine. I cannot comment on the rooms at the Hilton, but... More

We stayed at Waikoloa Beach Resort for a conference and extended our stay an extra week to enjoy some much needed vacation time. Though the location, the grounds, the food and the amenities were great, the rooms and the resort's customer service left much to be desired. When we first checked in we waited over 2 hours for room service,... More

Very large and extragant resort. Food, drinks, and activities are all very expensive (2-3 times more than any other resort in Hawaii). Everything costs money and hidden fees at every turn. It was a 3/4 mile walk from our room to the front desk; fortunately there was a tram and boat rides. No actual beach but many other frills.
