U.S. News Review

Sprawling across 62 acres of the Big Island's coveted Kohala Coast, the Hilton Waikoloa Village can sometimes feel more like a theme park than a luxury hotel. The property boasts a variety of activities to keep visitors — particularly families — entertained, including dolphin encounters, three pools (with waterslides) and evening luaus. And for a more relaxing getaway, this Hilton property features a 25,000-square-foot full-service spa, as well as two championship golf courses. But despite everything this massive hotel has to offer, not all visitors are impressed. On one hand, visitors appreciate that every room here comes equipped with the Hilton brand's signature Serenity beds and private lanais (balconies). Guests also praise the hotel employees for their friendly demeanor. On the other hand, travelers felt that a stay in the Hilton Waikoloa Village costs much more than it was worth, citing subpar cuisine at the hotel restaurants and additional fees for services like Internet access as primary qualms. However, members of the Hilton HHonors rewards program can save by using points to pay.

“It's up to you how to navigate through this 62-acre oceanfront Disneyesque golf resort, laced with fantasy pools, lagoons, and a profusion of tropical plants in between three low-rise towers.”
Award: Frommer's Recommended


“The Hilton Waikoloa Village is the largest and most family-friendly resort in the Kailua-Kona area, and is often referred to as the 'Disneyland' of the Big Island.”


“With activities available on property, restaurants, and shops, there is no need to leave the indulgent holiday atmosphere.”


“Modern rooms in neutral tones have private lanai and are large enough to accommodate the families that flock here.”
