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

Awesome resort, biggest pool I have ever seen and end of August was not at all crowded as Im guessing most families had the kids back in school. The natural lagoon was great for snorkeling, lots of fish and 1 morning i counted 6 different turtles. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Bring your walking shoes however, the resort covers... More

It was wonderful to stay in condo I-2 at Waikoloa Beach Villas. We have rented other vacation homes in the past and our experience here was superb. It is spacious, clean, and well decorated. The Hawaiian/Polynesian art inspired me to purchase similar items at the shops. It was beautiful to see the sunrise from the lanai. The concierge service was... More

We stayed at Fairway Villas N34, close to the inland lake. The place is great with an infinity pool. The public beach is also great, you can do snorkeling in front of Lava Lava beach club's villas. The beach and parking is free, the sea does not have big waves. (For surfing, you should find some other beach)

We stayed at a private condo, Halii Kai. Nice complex, on the ocean, but w/o access to the beach, unless you drive to "A" Bay. We didn't care too much for A bay, so we traveled to various beaches in our area of the island. Our favorite was Kukio Beach, take Kukio Nui Rd., off the main road.....Kukio had a... More

It's a lovely place to be around. I like Hawaii island because it's not crowded like in Oahu or Maui, which I hear is getting more people recently. Hilton hotels have their shuttles running, and if you stay in one hilton hotel I think you can use other hotels' swimming pools as well. Strongly recommended :)
