Probably the nicest LARGE resort on the Big Island
Posted Sep 13, 2017 on Expedia
The Hilton Waikoloa Village presents a good compromise between a large "family-oriented resort" (noisy and crowded with youngsters) and a smaller, "boutique hotel/resort" for couples looking for peace and quiet, but with the many choices for dining as well as activities, all in one place. The Waikoloa Village is HUGE, but with the quiet, on-site electric tram running frequently from one end of the resort to the other in addition to the passenger boats, there is no real transportation problem getting from one place to another, even for older vacationers who prefer to walk as little as possible. The dining choices vary from super-casual "coffee and croissant" nooks to the magnificent Kamuela Provision Company "steak house" that rivals the quality of any on the island, including a world-famous one in Kona. Our room on this stay was in the Ocean Tower, which we have always felt was the quietest of the three towers. A wonderful stay as usual. I may not be a Kamaaina yet, but I have been coming to Hawaii since 1957. Yes, 60 years.
