Our Hilton Waikoloa Village resort is one of the top destinations among Waikoloa Kona Hotels. Relax in this unique, 62 acres, oceanfront exclusive Kohala Coast on Hawaii Island. Waikoloa resort features lush tropical gardens with waterways, exotic wildlife and a museum walkway with Asian and Pol...
Wonderful hotel stay. Pool area is amazing, service and room quality was stellar. Waikoloa is a bit isolated so you're subjected to resort prices if you don't have transport, but otherwise great stay
Great place to visit...make sure you have a car though because you are a little isolated in the resort. There are many things to do at the resort... It's kinda like a "Disney World" of the islands.
This is what "ocean view" looks like. This place is a circus. Stayed in room 5233. It was a dump. Disgusting. Awful room. Stained sheets, pillow cases and carpet. Don't stay here! Marriott MUCH better
Food in any of the restaurants here is way too expensive. If you must eat here, opt for the Maholo lounge's ahi poke with taro chips and prime rib sliders- relatively inexpensive and good.
Snorkel in the lagoon. At least 6 turtles reside there. If you snorkel past the bridge and rope, the coral seems like it is all dead. Some fish there. We did see another turtle there also.
Ocean tower is good for adults, families may want Lagoon tower because it is closer to activities. Beautiful resort, lots to keep everyone entertained. I will go back!
The lagoon is a good place try snorkeling if you're too scared to go on the shore. They have sea turtles and a good sampling of the common reef fish.
The birds will wake you up early every morning. Avoid the inside aisles of the hotels during and after sunset because that's when they come in to nest. Very loud.
Fish Frenzy at our boat canal and Glow-in-the-Dark Golf at our putting course! These activities and more are in the latest Hilton Waikoloa Village Activity Calendar. There is always something to do!
If you lose your towel or you just don't want to wait in line for one, go to the towel stand at the Ocean Tower adult pool. There is never an attendant there.
DO NOT STAY HERE. Food is garbage, pricey and cold. It takes about an hour to walk to your room. Rent a scooter to get around since the boat is always broken and the tram is slow.
The WiFi is pathetic and AT&T (since Hilton has outsourced to them) to build better Internet infrastructure - even the room Ethernet is bad - pretty much a #FAIL Even the AT&T 4G is bad! Sad!
Pass up snorkeling in the lagoon. Drive or take the free shuttle to A Bay (parking lot by Queens Market), walk south for 5 minutes, and snorkel for real.
This place is way too big and tacky. If you like to take light rails around your resort and enjoy hordes of people then book a room immediately.
The lobby looks chaotic and the check-in process is so slow here. Not relaxing atmosphere. I prefer Fairmont property better!
If the tram isn't coming within the next minute in the direction you want, you're better off walking.
What a zoo-- but the dolphin quest program is fantastic and the food at the plantation restaurant is excellent!
Be prepared for ants and mold in the rooms. I would not consider this a 5 star hotel nor would I come back if not for business.
Buy some cracked corn from the feed stores. Huge family of wild turkeys living behind the units. Fun to feed them
Quality of service has gone down since the last couple times here. Glad to have spent most of the time staying at Kings' Land instead
Take the free shuttle to the beach behind the Marriott. Then if you wish, walk over to the Kings/Queens Shops.
Tram is super slow... If you have the time, walk - it's not that far and there's lots to look at!
Be sure to eat before 11am or after 12pm... No where to really eat between those times.
Leave the tram behind. It's too slow. Walk down the right side passage. Asian art for miles.
Great hotel. Family oriented. Food could be better though and a little more reasonable.
Walk everywhere you go, there are 18,000 pieces of art and sculpture displayed throughout the corridors and property
Introduction to island to do worth - everyday 8am close to lobby. Also free coffee and pastries ;-)
Ask for the ocean tower in the west wing. Gorgeous sunsets & ocean views.
Get out 15 minutes earlier than you would normally plan to because the tram is slow. Better yet just walk.
As pricey as it is, disappointed in the hotel. Huge roaches in our room, rude staff, food mediocre.
Kirin Restaurant has fantastic food ... Get a seat on the balcony at sunset
Beautiful resort! Huge! Lots of walking :-) facilities are ok.
Vast but walkable. Avoid the tram.
Watch for the big turtles in the salt pool especially in the waterfall.
Sweet pools/lagoons/lounging for the day but food and drinks are airport prices.
Good spot for both families and singles. So large you never feel crowded.
The luau is a stage show. Skip it and fins another one nearby.
Go snorkle by the waterfall, you will see the most incredible fish up close.
Sometimes better to just walk to your specific tower or take the boat, the tram can be quite slow
Midnight trips to the waterfall jacuzzi are a perfect ending to the day!!
America concert tonight..little guy gets to stay with us!
Great cocktails and an amazing sunset...!
Dona And Tony's opened today. Great pizza, although spendy.... very good.
Beware when eating outdoors- the birds show no fear!
The tram isn't slow, just plan ahead. Simple.
Just when I thought I had seen it all.... I see a monorail in the lobby. Haha.
Take meditation, Chi Gong, and Tai Chi classes with Gwen, she is awesome!
The turtles like to hang out under the lagoon waterfall.
Pretty neat but for $200 a night I expect more...not impressed
Go swim with the dolphins! Its amazing. And don't touch the turtles..
