  • Best Resort on Big Island


    Always enjoy staying here...yes it is expensive. But you get what you pay for here. Grat restaurants....pools, views, and walk along the beach or side walk or swimm bedind a waterfall. Kayak....swim with dolphins or sea turtles.

    Unique Quality: Waterfall pools...water slides...snorkeling and a man made beach in middle of resort,

  • beautiful property, not for the budget-conscious


    This is an expensive hotel ($250/night to face away from the ocean) that offers a unique environment from which to explore the Kona coast. They do have a great room rate for federal employees/military personnel with proof of employment which is the primary reason that I stayed there. The rooms were just OK, not luxurious or new in the "cheaper" towers. They do have fabulous VIP suites in other buildings if you have megabucks to burn. A car rental is a must unless you plan to just pay for expensive guided tours which will pick you up at the resort. Food is outrageous on site! The Italian restaurants (on site and in town) failed to season the food normally in deference to the Japanese tourists who frequent Hawaii. Ugh! The breakfast buffet is outstanding but costs $24 each! It is a short drive to the next town where reasonable prices can be found for meals, but beware of slow traffic that cannot be passed on the only highway and packed parking on the strip during the evenings. The Big Island has its own more natural beauty. This is more "old" Hawaii compared to Oahu.

    Unique Quality: This resort is fairly self-contained and surrounds a bay. It has its own protected swimming lagoon with mini-beach and waterfall. This is ocean-front, not beach-front property although the views are wonderful. My room had a view of the bay and on the balcony to the left was a clear shot of the active volcano. There is a swim with the dolphins program for an extra charge. The on site spa/fitness center is really nice.

    Transportation within the resort either by monorail or ferry boats along the main canal that stretches from one end of the resort to the other. The grounds include a covered walkway that leads through the resort for those who would rather walk than ride.

    There is more than 5 million dollars in beautiful artwork including textiles, paintings and sculpures from Pacific and Asian cultures. There are multiple pools including an adults only and an interesting canal-like pool that winds along with Japanese style foot bridges crossing it occasionally.

Hilton Waikoloa Village

by scybak about Hilton Waikoloa Village

This is one of the nicest hotels I've been in. It is really big(trains and boats within the hotel for fast travel within the hotel). You could spend a whole day just in the hotel. There are many activities such as swimming on the beach, snorkeling in the lagoon, water slides, different pools, dolphin quest($$$), etc. The rooms are all nice and maintained properly. There are tennis courts and golf courses for the hotel. It is pretty expensive but it's worth the price.

Best Hilton Ever

by NedHopkins about Hilton Waikoloa Village

The Hilton Waikoloa Village is huge, a resort rather than a hotel. To get around its grounds (and four main towers) one may take either a tram or a boat that runs on rails. A lavish breakfast is served in two of its four restaurants: American, Chinese. Japanese, continental/gourmet. Rooms are large and most offer an ocean view. Activities include cavorting with dolphins and whale-watching.

Hilton Waikoloa Village

by Koleno

Hilton Waikoloa Village This is the BEST HOTEL WE HAVE EVERY STAYED AT. This has it all. Located on 62 acres, this resort has trams, boats that take you to your room. Within this 62 acre DISNEY style resort is waterfalls, wildlife, lagoons, 175 water slide and so much more. The best part is the dolphin lagoon, were if you lucky you can swim with the doplhins (It's a lottery system). We didn't get to swim with the dolphins, but it was a great show anyway. PLEASE SEE OUR TRAVELQOUES on this fantastic resort.

Like no other hotel on the island

by Sunshine64 about Hilton Waikoloa Village

The grounds of the Hilton Waikoloa Village are what makes it special.

From the lobby, you take either a train or water taxi (on a man-made canal) to most of the guest rooms.

The hotel has it's own lagoon - complete with a waterfall where you can swim, snorkel, kayak, etc. There are sea turtles in the lagoon, and it's fun to paddle around in your kayak looking for them.

The hotel has several pools, one with a water slide. And hammocks are scattered around the grounds for your relaxation pleasure.

There are bars and restaurants with local dishes, tennis courts, and other activities - including a dolphin encounter, by which I was both entertained and a little disburbed.

If you didn't have a desire to see the rest of the beautiful island, you could easily be content to stay on the hotel grounds.

Mahalo- Waikoloa Village

by BigBlueOne about Hilton Waikoloa Village

Everything was excellent from the staff to the picture perfect surroundings. Food, while good, was very expensive (two burgers, a beer and a coke= $35) so take out a second mortgage before you go... One of the larger hotels I've ever stayed in, this place has it all (excellent restaurants, a wedding chapel, multiple pools, etc.).

A manmade tropical paradise, surrounded by lava

by danmcf about Hilton Waikoloa Village

The first Mega Resort on the Kohala coast. This place is huge, with over 1200 rooms, 5+ restaurants, several swimming pools, a manmade lagoon, and 'Dolphin Quest'.
It's so big they have trams and boats that you can ride to get to your on site destination. Although we didn't bring our kids, it looks to be a great place for young children up to early teens. 'Dolphin Quest' is where you can meet a dolphin face-to-face, guided by expert trainers.

You Never Have To Leave

by jag17 about Hilton Waikoloa Village

This is a really nice hotel. It is very large (62 acres). The hotel offers free tram and boat service that travels between the buildings. Everything you could possibly want is available. The usual water activities, kids programs, tennis, golf, shopping, spa, and the best...a chance to swim with the dolphins. In addition, the hotel offers 9 dining choices, and 8 lounges. The hotel grounds are just beautiful. The pool and lagoon area alone is 4 acres. You could spend your entire vacation just exploring and relaxing at the hotel.

Hilton Waikoloa Village

by your_sister about Hilton Waikoloa Village

3 low rise towers-Ocean, Palace, and Lagoon. The Ocean Tower (where we stayed) is made up of 3 connected open circles with waterways, restaurant, coffee shop, vegetation, and fish and birds inside the circles. Lanais for every room. The Lagoon Tower has views of the dolphin pool where they have dolphin programs for chidren and adults. You actually get in the water with the dolphins and have physical contact with them. The dolphin programs for children must be booked in advance and the adult program is by daily lottery drawings. 3 pools, one of which (located in the Ocean Tower) is adults only. Water slide. 3 jacuzzis. Waterfalls in the pools-you walk behind these when walking the pathways. Boat and tram transportation around resort. Snorkeling lagoon with sea turtles that come in from the ocean (do not touch turtles-they are protected). Wedding chapel. 6 restaurants. Golf courses, tennis courts, sand volleyball court. Kohala Spa.Shops.Beautiful, beautiful grounds on 62 acres. Our room had a king size bed, night stand, table, sofa, coffee table, tv, 2 phones, mini bar, coffee maker, hairdryer. All rooms have balconies. In the Ocean Tower, most rooms also have a view from the open walkway outside the doors, since the inside of the circles is open, so you have two views from these rooms. This is a picture taken from behind the waterfall that faces the saltwater lagoon.

Hilton Waikoloa Towers

by hawaiigrl

Which Tower is best to stay at?
Ocean, Palace or Lagoon???

Re: Hilton Waikoloa Towers

by Tiffany808

Well Ocean has great ocean views of course!! Lagoon towers also have some ocean view, but most also look over the Dolphin Quest, which is fun to watch from the room when they have shows going on. Palace tower is overliooking the golf course... hmm....

Re: Re: Hilton Waikoloa Towers

by hawaiigrl

Thank you. Someone told me not to stay in the Ocean Tower - so was just wondering which Tower to stay in. The parking is furthest away from the Ocean though right?

Re: Re: Hilton Waikoloa Towers

by Tiffany808

All the parking is together far away, unless you use valet
