We love this place! Let me say we may be somewhat biased as we own a rental property in Waikoloa Beach Villas. There are many options here for lodging - condos on the golf course, condos on the ocean and Hilton and Marriott Hotels. I might mention that the condos are often much cheaper than the hotels and much more space for families or extended stays.
There are two shopping venues in the resort featuring a variety of upscale shops and restaurants.
With the wide tree lined walkways through the resort, pretty much everything is within walking distance.
There is a great beach, also called A-Bay within the resort. A nice sand beach with very little surf. Sun and shade are both available at this beach. This is a great spot to watch wind surfers or see the sea turtles that come up on the shore to sun themselves.
There is also a great new family friendly bar/restaurant located right on the beach- Lava Lava Beach Club. Nice addition to the beach.
If you want a bigger beach , you are only a few minutes from Hapuna State Park Beach. Voted by Travel & Leisure magazine as one of the top 5 family beaches in the US.
There are two beautiful golf courses within the resort also. hawaiigolfcondo is along the Beach Course. The Kings Course is also quite beautiful and a little cheaper to play than the Beach Course. Both are quite reasonable however as resort guests.
Some people may be put off by the moonscape appearance of all the lava fields surrounding the lush surroundings of the resort. We like the variety of Eco systems on the island. Waikoloa Beach Resort sits in a desert pocket of the Kohala Coast, which means they get about 10 inches of rain a year. This is good news for those planning a sunny beach vacation!
