    Pros: Nice view of the ocean

    Location: We took the helicopter ride. It was great.
    It is nice for younger people. Not much for seniors. The food was Very expensive. The tram was a nice way to get around when it was working. It was out of order for two days. Very nice art work all around the place.

    Hotel staff were all top-notch! However, I went to the hotel on purpose to WORK during the weekend. The lights were so dim in the room that I could not work. If the hotel wasn't so beautiful, I would say that it was a complete waste of my time. I spent 2x as much as I normally do for the room, and couldn't do what I went out to do. Very disappointing! But your staff -- THEY made it worh while.

    Pros: the scenery
    Cons: the transportation around the hotel! the running of the TRAM!! Always broken down...
    Location: the shops off the resort were decent.
    The food was not Good at all --at the hotel!! The staff moved real slow --no consideration for the tourist which are their "Bread & Butter"!! If it wasn't for the tourist staying at the Hotel --there's no money to be made at the Big Island... Simply very displeased!! Meehan Family

    Terrible resort.Should be classified as good hotel

    2 out of 5
    by from WA
    Posted Feb 15, 2017
    Pros: Beautiful landscape and its surroundings
    Cons: At least they have to make sure to provide the basic amenities to the rooms (WIFI) or transportation for their custormers
    Location: Mai grille is very good restaurant Imari restaurant in the HWV is mediocre. The food court in the Queen's market place is reasonably good and cheap.
    Hilton Waikoloa Village (HWV) is a beautiful place with no doubt about it. However, it is not a good resort and it should be classified as good hotel. Here is why: 1) It is very inconvenient. From the lobby to my room (in Ocean View tower), I had to take a tram or boat to get to my room. Then the tram was out of service and only boat service was available. People had to scramble to get into the boat to get to their rooms (either in Palace Tower, Ocean View Tower or Lagoon Tower). I had to wait for 30-45 minutes and still couldn't get in. I had to walk back to my room and it was inconvenient when I had to carry my stuffs. luggage, especially when people checked out and had to drag their luggage to the main lobby. 2) For room amenities: there was no internet service or wifi service even though they said there was free wifi in the room. I called the IT service and their answer was they would check back with the company (AT&T) as there was "something wrong with the setting" and they couldn't fix it but they politely said they would let the department know about the issue and the wifi was never fixed. It was frustrating when I needed the internet to search for restaurants or tours but couldn't do so. With 2 basic amenities, the hotel was not able to provide it for the customers and how can it be classified a resort? Even the cheap hotels (for example, Day Inns, Holiday Inns they do have the wifi service and not like this HWV. I will not come back to HWV and not recommend it also.

    Despite high occupancy rate, hospitality was great

    5 out of 5
    by from Volcano, Hawaii
    Posted Feb 14, 2017
    Pros: Although the staff was busy checking people in and out of the hotel, they did a great job of talking to guests, answering questions and serving guest.
    Location: There are many things to do and see. Swimming at the various locations. Shopping very near by. Dining at the hotel and nearby locations.
    Hawaii Island is our home. It is wonderful to take a small vacation on the West Side of the island. Although the Hilton Waikoloa was fully booked, the hotel staff made us feel that we were the only guests in the hotel. Everything was handled professionally with warm aloha. The room was beautiful. The view was the best we've ever had. Although the tram was not working part of the time, we welcomed the opportunity to exercise as we moved from our room to the various places on the hotel campus. I think that most of the guests felt the same way as smiles were exchanged on the walks to and fro.

    Great if you Like Resorts

    4 out of 5
    by from Los Angeles, CA
    Posted Feb 14, 2017
    Pros: Incredible views, great pools, friendly staff (except at the restaurant), and clean and comfortable rooms.
    Cons: Too many hidden fees
    Very clean, nice resort. Pleasant staff and tons of restaurants in the resort. If you are a resort person, this is a great place for you. If you're looking to explore the local culture/cuisine, this is not the place for you. Personally, I had a very terrible experience at the Italian restaurant on site and so I would not recommend eating there. Very rude staff at the restaurant. Personally, I felt like the hotel was trying to take advantage of it's customers and milk them for as much money as possible. It's almost impossible to get your luggage to your room on your own so you need one of the bellman to do it. So, plan on having cash to tip the bellman. At the restaurant tip was included but it was disguised on the bill. In addition to that, they included a suggested tip line to try to get you to tip even more than you already had. Those are two examples, but for one night, that's a lot!

    This was a great experience the hotel has everything you need to have a great vacation. One recommendation if you are renting a car rent it ahead at the hotel is double. And get prepared to walk the place is huge and sometimes the electric bus is down. Overall great place to stay
