We stayed at Hilton Hawaiian Village a number of years ago, and really enjoyed it, but were somewhat hesitant after reading all the negative reviews. However, we decided to go for it, reserving a corner king room in the newly renovated Rainbow Tower. The views from both sides were absolutely spectacular! Expensive yes, but worth every penny. The construction noise did not affect us at all. We couldn't really hear it from our room on the 21st floor and not on the beach--just as a very kind trip advisor member assured me before our trip. The construction does break up the property, and I can see where it would be a major annoyance if your room was located anywhere nearby. The time we visited was a slow period and the resort was definitely not too crowded even if busy. For example, I never saw more than a dozen people in the super pool and there were relatively few children. Don't get me wrong, there were still masses of people, but a lot less than some reviewers mentioned. I think that if you are the type of person who enjoys Disney World--the crowds, lines, confusing and meandering paths, numerous shops, and beautifully landscaped grounds, you would probably enjoy HHV. Same sort of energetic vibe. And perhaps because there were less guests, every single staff person we interacted with (with the exception of a waiter at the Tropics Bar) was pleasant and helpful. The room itself was beautiful and we loved the elevator system that moved folks very efficiently. HHV sits on a gorgeous stretch of beach and there are several pools as well. The only negatives are the massive parking garage, which makes it a real pain to retrieve your car, and the little rocks on the beach. Wear water shoes if you have sensitive feet. Everything is overpriced of course, but that's to be expected at a resort of this type. Oh, and for breakfast, don't miss the Wailana Coffee House, across the street from HHV, for an excellent meal and quick service at a reasonable price.
