Can't fault the Hilton Grand Vacation Club at Waikoloa beach resort. Beautiful rooms with a massive onsuite bathroom. The ground floor units walk right out to the golf course. The resort is very quiet with some great pools. Minimal beach which is down at the Hilton hotel. Friendly staff and a fun Mahalo night - singing and hula.

We stayed at the Bay Club in May through Hilton Grand Vacations. Our original reservation was for a new HGV unit, but we were "relocated" to the Bay Club due to construction delays. We were a little apprehensive after reading reviews here, but followed the suggestion to request a remodeled unit. And it was great! Very large, especially for we four adults. It was freshly painted, and most of the furniture seemed pretty new, too. The two bedrooms are separated by the living area, providing more than adequate privacy. We were in a corner unit on the top (third) floor, and our large, L-shaped lanai was wonderful. (Lots of beautiful birds thought so, too. We always kept binoculars with us!) We faced the golf course, and also had a wonderful view of the mountains.

The negatives were minor compared to the comfort of the condo:
- Sticky Kitchen cabinets (I felt compelled to wash my hands each time I opened a cabinet or drawer)
- The king bed in the master bedroom was past its useful life (it sagged)

We would definitely return here. May was a great time as occupancy seemed pretty low so it was quiet. (A minor irritant: mid-stay an occupant next door on the lower floor was smoking a cigar on the lanai in the mornings, so we had to close our windows to prevent the smoke from entering our condo, especially our bedroom. Yuck!) These condos are older & larger than the new HGV condos, and the lanais are also much larger. We all preferred Bay Club!

If you want beach to walk on, it's not around here. (Too much lava.) The Hilton resort is huge & interesting, kind of like a tropical Disneyland. It was a 10-minute walk from our condo, so an easy diversion.

One more thing: the snack bar by the main pool made the best MaiTai I had on the Big Island!
