This is overwhelming at first. It is a sprawling area with a water taxi or tram to take you around. After waiting for each, there is more waiting for each stop. We found it easier to walk and logged six miles in each day without leaving the resort. The kids loved the lagoon and snorkeling with a turtle. The pool... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at Waikoloa Resort. Everything was as expected - although the walk from the front desk area to our room was - invigorating. Of course the tram was always available and the boat, but my wife is a fitness freak so we had to make the trek. Highly recommended location.

I arrived earlier than expected to the resort. Fortunately for me Nicholas at the front desk was able to confirm that my room was ready! I was given one of the Makai rooms with all the benefits that go with it and one of these was being escorted to the room with a brief run down on locations and how... More

My family and I stayed here for 1 week and we were all impressed. They had some initial issues getting through the initial gate due to us not realizing we had left our passcode in an envelope at home (our mistake). The swimming pool was beautiful and had a fun trail leading to the beach. Our room was very clean... More

Hotel is nice but huge. Can take you 30+ minutes to get to your room. My parents are staying in the kings land by Hilton grand vacation. I wish I would've stayed there also

Lovely place to stay! Great views, peaceful and plenty of shops nearby . Facilities are kept immaculate and the place is easy to get around. Great base for exploring the island as long as you have a car.

The resort is large and impersonal. It takes far too long to check in. Trams run back and forth to shuffle the hundreds of visitors to the far flung buildings. The boat doing the same on a manmade river seems just silly. Everyone I met wanted me to buy something.

Stayed at the Waikoloa Vista condos. May 10, 2016 until May17 2016. Great condo, great location. Felt just like home. Stores down the street were pricey, but what do you expect from a resort.

We drove from Kona to spend the afternoon at the Waikoloa Beach Resort. We walked to a public beach and watched the breaking waves shoot high into the air. The Hilton has a huge art collection that parallels their train and boat transportation systems. The collection was awesome and inspiring. Probably most items are reproductions, but I enjoyed them thoroughly... More

Well, the resort itself, as far as image is, awesome. Though expect to pay for every single little thing, but isn't that what it is nowadays? NOTHING is ever included anymore. Well selection of restaurants. Prices again, ouch! My room and the standard room, might not be such a great deal. We were put at Ocean Tower. Needless to say,... More
