Hilton Waikoloa Village
pics from Hilton Village
we used my husband Hilton rewards to get 5 nights free and it was amazing. A huge resort .. great service, lots to do there. We plan to return in the near future especially if we have enough points to go.
Unique Quality: The art and sculpture. ... great sunsets especially nice to go see the Buddha on the hill at sunset, the pools are also very nice.
Directions: more pics from our Hilton resort. cant wait to go back to Hawaii
lots of cool birds
some of the birds were very easy to spot .. I found some neat birds near the coffee place towards the main pool and over near the tennis courts. A few birds are residents like the endangered goose .. I believe it's called Nene .. at one time there were only 30 known in existence. They have one in a enclosure here .. bit sad only 1. Anyway the goose is not the most lovely .. personally I'm most in love with their version of a cardinal .. it's gorgeous and we saw several this trip.
Loved our free stay at this awesome resort
This resort is quite large and getting the right room is important. We are diamond level rewards and used our rewards points for 5 nights here and that also saved us the daily resort fee which is around 35 a night. So all we paid was the 25 a night for parking and had no trouble doing the self parking. We came here mainly for the snorkeling and spent a day across the island seeing some waterfalls and a botanical garden. We'd done the volcano park the last time so didn't do it this time.
This resort is huge and probably wouldn't be the best fit for someone with mobility issues or too elderly to get around comfortably. They do have a boat and tram to help transport people around but theres still a good bit of walking to do. I enjoyed waling around looking at the art and sculpture ... especially the Budda on the hill at sunset and the metal carriage and horses. stunning. I got up by 5 and would walk around until my husband woke up .. after 5 nights I still didn't see it all and still kept getting lost but loved it. The pools are great and won awards for romance. plenty of seating and didn't feel crowded though they were supposedly full. Several restaurants and we ate at most so didn't have to go back out in the evenings which was very convenient. The nicest was of course the most expensive .. the KPC by the ocean fine dining.
they have snorkeling lagoon with snorkeling that wasn't good but there was turtles and fish in there .. the water gets really murky and gross so if you want to use it ... do it early. The have dolphins if you want to do the swimming with dolphin thing .. makes me sad to see them confined. They rent kayaks etc for the lagoon. This place very good for families and kids. Personally I prefer adult only destinations for romance .... kids screaming and laughing everywhere make it less peaceful.
they have private pools for rewards travelers and rewards area which is were we were .. very convenient to pool and parking lot with partial ocean view.
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.
