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

We booked a 3 bedroom condo in the resort. There are two and a half baths, nice living space and an easy walk the the Hilton complex where we have privileges. A couple issues we have are really gripes about expectation gap. I would have expected that we would not have to buy our own toilet paper, but they didn't... More

This resort area has everything you need for a great vacation. The weather is amazing here in January. The two golf courses are great but especially the Beach Course hole 7 with amazing views of the ocean and coast line. Grocery stores were a bit pricy within the resort but we found a great store in Mauna Lani with much... More

The only thing I can say negative about this hotel is the distance it is from Kona and the airport but that is also a good thing! This place gives you the Hawaii feel that you cannot get from Waikiki beach. The resort is isolated in the middle of an old lava field so no real noise except the waves.... More

We reserved an ocean view room. When we went to our room, 1/2 of the view was the building and the rest was overlooking another building. Normally an ocean view means an unobstructed vies of the ocean. We called and they were helpful (for on $25 more a night, we got what we consider an ocean view. Then, one day,... More
