I did not realize that the Island of Hawaii was so big. I am glad that I rented an automobile, but did not enjoy spending so much time driving to/from the events that we decided to participate in. ie: Most of the things we did were 25-30 miles away & 45-60 minutes commute each way. The resort has everything you need & is self-contained, if you elect NOT to leave.

Clean, convenient and good location. Not "over the top" amenities when compared to other sites...this was perfect for us as the resort offer a peaceful environment that was close to activities. Rooms were comfortable, easy to access, and quite. We had a two bedroom. The master had a nice golf course view. The second bedroom lacked a view, but was quiet and comfortable.

This property is NOT ocean view, it's like being in an apartment ....not what I would consider a "resort" -- not restaurants are within walking distance, only one bar, no ice machines that we could find and no vending machines.

Thank you for your comments on your recent stay here with us, which you are right, we are located between two championship golf courses and do not feature ocean view accommodations. Our spacious 2bdrm suites feature full kitchens that many of our guests utilize so there aren’t usual requests for vending machines and ice machines but, your comments are appreciated and will be noted. We do provide complimentary shuttle service within the Waikoloa Beach Resort area for the convenience of our registered guests to get to the various dining and shopping options at the nearby Kings’ Shops and Queen’s Marketplace. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, wishing you well on your future travels.

We rented 3 units for a couple of celebrations. We are Elite members. Had a Bottom end unit backing the golf course that was almost perfect. We had lots of birds mongoose and wild cats come for visits. We were close to the grills as well. yes we could hear stomping from the unit above but it wasn't to bad. The staff was great, very pleasant and helpful. My one major issue was since there was not a lot of counter space in the kitchen we tended to put things onto the range when coming in from the store. However, the control are at the front and twice we inadvertently turn the control on. One time we melted a bag and the other time my DSLR got a little hot. When we went to Aulani next they had range controls on the back so that wasn't an issue.

Room Tip: End bottom next to gold course.

The Hilton Waikoloa is our favorite destination when we visit Hawaii. The property is amazing. There are tons of pictures and videos but you have to visit in person to appreciate. We usually get 2 rooms to accommodate a family of 5 but the HGVC at Waikoloa can easily accommodate all of us plus the units have a full kitchen. We still had full access to all of the amenities of the Hilton Waikoloa which is about a half-mile up the street, a 2 min shuttle ride or 10 min walk. My kids are teens so we did a lot more activities around the island on this trip. One of the best features of the HGVC is that you can park close to your room when you get back which is really nice if you have gear, a beach bag, or a case of water to bring back. We'll definitely plan our future trips to the Big Island around availability at the HGVC.
