“More for families not couples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful place but could be located anywhere. It's the Disney World of Hilton. Great place to entertain kids but for us I would have preferred a much smaller hotel with beach access. Food was so expensive. Breakfast $30 buffet. We went off site down one block where you can find several places for breakfast, lunch, dinner. The service was excellent, the valet guys awesome and fast. Great leu au at the hotel. Recommend for families not so much for couples. We never used any of the facilities. We got up and left to enjoy the island.

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

This beautiful resort has plenty of kid-friendly activities, food, and the staff is very helpful in getting you set-up with activities off of the resort. The lagoon is gentle and great for kid-swimming and snorkeling. There are extensive pools and hot tubs as well as plenty of on-site entertainment. This resort (of course) is a bit pricey, but that is to be expected for Hilton + Hawaii. Recommend getting the holo holo card for discounts, although you do have to sit through a timeshare presentaiton-it is worth the value and savings!

We recently returned from the Waikoloa Beach Resort and can't wait to go back. We agreed to the time share presentation as part of the trip. I'm a Hilton rewards member and was offered discounts to visit the resort and listen to what they had to say about time shares. The resort was great...in fact the Big Island fantastic. Much preferred to Honolulu. Our vacation counselor was Maria Fuentevilla and she was great. She explained the concept of time share and pointed out the pros and cons. I went considering it but decided against it for now. I liked the product but it did not fit my life right now. She was professional and Hilton delivered on everything promised. I'm a big fan of Hilton and travel over 50 nights a year. I always pick Hilton and this experience only reinforced that practice.

We opted to celebrate a milestone with all of our children and grand vacation. Two adjoining villas provided ample space for 9 people. There were many opportunities on site and on the island. We canoed down the "ditches" while being informed about irrigation systems for the growing fields, learned to surf, scuba dived, and enjoyed a luau. Local restaurants provided several breaks from cooking ( Costco is so close and we stocked up on arrival). The all day tour of the island and the luau were well worth the cost. The villas were well decorated, clean and comfortable. The pool, which was only a few steps from the front door also had activities for the young folks, beverages and snacks for all, shade for the old timers, and entertainment in the early evening.

We agreed to sit through a time share presentation in exchange for discounted accommodations. We were put in the HGVC Kohala Suites, but toured and bought a timeshare at HGVC Kingsland. Kingsland is terrific. The suites are clean and new and the pool/bar area is fantastic. There is an adult pool and the kids pool has waterfalls, a slide and a zero entry beach. It was never crowded and the staff was fantastic. We plan to book this next year. On the other hand, where we were housed, at the Kohala Suites, was not nearly as much fun. The suite was nice, but the washing machine and refrigerator were broken and the guest shower dripped 24/7. The pool was a nightmare. It was way, way too crowded. Forget finding a lounge chair, much less one in the shade. The bar was small and manned by one bartender, who was nice but extremely slow. The lines for a drink were unbelievable. I will never stay here again.

My family of 9, my parents, 3 sons, daughter-in-law, 2 grandchildren and myself had the time of our lives as this resort. The accommodations and grounds were lovely and the staff great. Would love to come back again and would highly recommend this resort.

I came for relaxation and to learn about Hawaii and I accomplished this! Jean at the front desk was exceptionally helpful and pleasant--thanks Jean! Also, Lois Don at the concierge provided excellent ideas of what to do.
