Terrible stay

Posted Dec 31, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness of the place and well appointed kitchen
Cons: Less rules about staying, less hostile valet, reduce prices and become more ecologically responsible.
Location: There is nothing to do near by except go to the hotel pool or play golf.
Confusing place to get to, very expensive amenities, and far away from all attractions. Your iphone will take you thru a route that is closed off. So, you will come to a stop sign where directions tell u to go straight but the road is blocked off. There are 2 Hilton's next to each other with very similar names, good luck finding the right one. When we got there the valet told us he would move our car w/o us checking in, when I refused because there were 2 kids sleeping in the car, he made me move the car before checking in (very very rude). Our place did face the golf course as promised but the interior was very dark to the point where we had to have the lights on all day. As for expensive amenities, lagoon pass was $150/day which is more then a Disney day pass and 2 liter bottle of soda was $7.00. I live in SF Bay Area in California, but even I have never seen such ridiculous prices. Unless you use expensive Hilton amenities, nearest reasonable price place (Waikoloa Village) is 20 min DRIVE away. All the other Big Island attractions like the Volcano National Park, the Black Sand Beach, the Mauna Kea observatory and the green sand beach are 2+ hr DRIVE away. Nearest white sand beach is an hour drive away, not my idea of Hawaii. If your idea of Hawaii vacation is to play golf, over pay for amenities, and drive long distances for unique adventures then Hilton is your place.

Perfect place except for an incident which was quite disappointing. A guy was driving through as we were walking to our suite. As he was passing by, he yelled at one of my kids, "Hey,kid, get off the f*** road!" I guess it's my fault for not watching my child. I Will definitely go back but will pick a unit near the pool and definitely upstairs.

初めてのハワイ島。とても不安があったのですが、日本語のスタッフでのチェックイン、お部屋&ホテル施設の充実にとても感動しました。 来年も絶対にこちらにお世話になろう!と家族で団結して帰ってきました。

I could live there!

This hotel was fabuolous, way more than I expected. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was absolutely clean and comfortable, better than home! The hotel has a very pleasant little pool, that is usually full of children, but you get a complimentary shuttle to drive you around Waikoloa Village and complimentary passes to go to the Hilton Waikoloa pool and lagoon, which is a vacation plan in itself, you won't want to leave there! But that's not all, every evening you get free activities by the pool, we got free icecream that was delicious! and a fabulous hula show. My only regret is that we stayed only 2 nights!
