“Vista Waikoloa, June 8-13...Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2004

Stayed at Vista Waikoloa in June 04 (A-201--we booked it based on a website that I found for this condo...)

Well equipped condo and comfortable bed...AC works well.
Great location...10 minute walk to Kings Shops.

Noise from condo construction across the street was not a problem...very quiet in general.

A Bay within walking distance, but better to drive 5 minutes to transport chairs, etc. Never a problem parking there and plenty of shade at A Bay. Was surprised to see greenish water...there are plenty of beautiful beaches in the area...we've been to Maui and Oahu and were not at all disappointed with the beaches on the Big Island.

Hilton Waikoloa is about a 5 minute walk away...nice to walk in the evening. Marriott is about a 10 minute walk.

Would definitely return.


I have some pictures....e-mail me if you have any questions.

We were understandibly leary after reading the reviews but very pleasantly suprised when we arrived May 15-19, 2004. We stayed in Building C, unit 303 & had views of the ocean, "A" Bay, & the mountains. Yes they are building at Kolea but the palm trees covered that. We had friends who stayed at the Bay Club and we all agreed that the Vista units were much bigger & had more amenities per unit although the Bay Club is timeshare not individually owned. Our daughters, 13 & 17 used the pool twice but we mostly went to Hapuna Beach. Saw turtles there, very cool!! Kings Shops are very spendy. We liked the grocery store at Waikoloa Village & dinner at Bubba Gumps & Huggos were great. Would use these again & recomend them highly!

We have been to the Vista Waikoloa three times since 2001. Our most recent trip was late October 2003. We have never had a negative experience from the expansion that is going on. The units are perched up on a hill overlooking open land and the views still remain the best of any condo complex in Waikoloa. Many units have maintained 100% unobstructed views. Last year Kolea modified thier original building plan to leave huge corridors of land open. We didn't notice any dust and virtually no noise.

They should update the photos. New condos being built obstructing most ocean views. Lot of construction activity up to 8pm at night, and dusty which spoiled the awsome sunsets. We just tried to stay away in the daytime, and the windows closed when we returned. Truth in advertising?

We stayed at the Vista Waikoloa from Nov 23 to DEc 24. We had heard about the noise from construction but did not experience any problems.
We had a great vacation and highly recommend it.

Best to wait on this one, new construction taking place between the resort and the ocean. Obstructs the view shown in the photos. Go search the Kolea web cam and you will see. we wre bothered by the noise and dust, workmen working until 8pm at night! Wait until after the summer.
