"Nice hotel but far from everywhere"
Nice place to stay, beautiful gardens and swimming pools but it is very far from everywhere. There is a mall nearby but that's about it...

"I really like the area. But...."
The hotel is dated and some what in a arested decay. The room was small and sometimes hot. The food was over priced and drinks were way overpriced. Bad hamburgers were $20.00 each and cocktails were $15.00 each. Breakfast for the buffet was 120.00 for 4 people. The staff was happy and friendly except for the dive boat staff who were so demeaning we refused to dive with them. I get that this is a vacation village but asking $10.00 for a gallon of milk is criminal at the only store in the village. They do have 3 pools and slide so for small children it would be great due to the lack of depth in pools. The beach was really nice for sunsets and snorkeling due to all the reef rocks so close to shore. One of my sons fished on the beach for baby blacktips every morning and sunset right on there beach. There is one of the best sandy beaches just north of the resort village that is a must see soft sands and few rocks. Im glad we had a unlimited milage on the rental car as we were exploring this cool island most of everyday. The best place to snorkle is the island of refuge and this historic park is not to be missed although hard to find. This trip we visited the volcanic park at night and it was worth the 200 mile round trip from the resort.

"Marriott Waikoloa Resort"
We have stayed here several times. This is a very good hotel and location. Great snorkeling in the bay. Lots of places to eat and shop walking distance. Central Kona Coast location is convenient. Great views. Staff is very pleasant. I have no complaints except their Mai Tai is $16.00! They have daily drink specials that are good deals, but a $16.00 Mai Tai? That's not right!

"Nice resort by the ocean"
Very clean and well maintained hotel from the grounds to the rooms, top notch all the way. Wether you want to lounge around the pools or become a beach bum, this resort has every spot covered. If sitting by the water isn't how you want to spend your day, you have access to multiple water activities: SUP, snorkel, and many more.

"Nice hotel on beach"
This hotel is beautiful with all resort accommodations. Buuuut it's far from everything...if you want to go to other restaurants or bars, don't stay here. Meals are super expensive. Other than that, everything else was great - Steps from the beach, has its nice pool area. It has other activities such as snorkel gear rental for free, yoga on the beach for a fee, etc.

"A nice alternative to the Hilton"
We booked this trip at the last minute, able to get two connecting rooms. We grew tired of the Hilton turning the boiler off late at night and not having hot water available for a shower early in the morning. Tried to get HGVC but it was booked solid. So we tried this; pleasantly surprised. Great view of the 4th of July fireworks from our lanai. Valet, Bell and Room Service all extremely pleasant and punctual. Dining area bus staff looked like he'd rather be somewhere else. Our senior waitress had a senior moment and didn't approach our table to ask us if we wanted beverages other than water until we were eating dessert. That's OK, auntie, we're done. Shower curtain could have been cleaner. Bathrooms don't have fans. Cinnamon scented shampoo was very odd. Nonetheless, we liked this place overall and would stay there again.

We only stayed one night until our condo was available. It's a wonderful resort if you like large resorts. We asked for two beds but ended up with a king and a roll-away. They said our reservation didn't guarantee a room with two beds. They did give us a roll-away at no charge but it was a tight fit. Would have been difficult if it was more than on day.

"Perfect vacation!!!"
I have no complaints. The grounds were kept impeccably clean and the rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. They only had one restaurant on site which we thought would be an issue but every dish that was served; the buffet, the room service and even the a-la-carte menus were so delicious. The food at the sunset luau was the best I've had in Hawaii. Kudos to all the chefs. We were so glad we picked it over the Hilton because it was the only hotel with beach access and just a short walk from the pools. The waves were so gentle that our 4 and 7 yr olds could swim and snorkel in the ocean. Granted, there may be more fun things to do at the Hilton especially for the kids but we went to Hawaii for the beaches. Besides, when we visited the Hilton to do the Dolphin Quest, we were amazed at how gigantic it was, just the walk to the dolphin cove from the lobby was exhausting. Call us lazy, but we just don't like any kind of stress on our vacations. The Marriott was just perfect for us because everything was within walking distance and stress less. We had a great and relaxing vacation.

"Another Marriott failure"
this hotel is strategically located with access to the ocean as well as pool amenities. The only problem was the comfort of the room itself. This was the second Marriott we stayed in during our trip to the islands. In both cases, we couldn't get the room cool enough, despite setting the thermostat on 65. The mini frig in the room also would not get cool enough giving us concern that the room was getting enough power. very limited electrical outlets made charging cell devices challenging. The hotel itself is very nice although the restaurants were seriously overpriced for the meal you get. We found ourselves dining in Kona instead.

"Overall of 1st Waikoaloa stay-5th Big Island visit"
The room was comfortable (our mattress needed changed for a new one soon), restaurant was good food($$), the gift shop was better than most, good lobby coffee shop, great pool area, fair to good beach-boats at beach, beautiful view and sunsets,luau was outdoors in the sun with a buffet/folding table style with service and great entertainment. The area was nice for a resort stay with a local shopping itinerary. A few local restaurants (3 Fat Pigs? unsure of exact name-was fantastic) (none of the 4 of us liked Macaroni Grill and was expensive for the quality) The rest of the island was a long drive, ie volcano, wet side, etc., also drive to Kona and airport was inconvenient.

"Weekend Family Trip"
Had a quick weekend trip with family from out of town. The Marriott is a great deal! The hotel room and hotel grounds are well kept. There are tons of shops and a beautiful beach to explore. We took advantage of the bay and did some snorkeling as well. I would highly recommend the Marriott for anyone staying on the Big Island. I have stayed in many hotels on the island and the Marriott is still my favorite.

"Bad service; small rooms"
I have stayed in hotels around the world and am currently a Marriott Gold Rewards member. This hotel provided the worst service I have encountered in my 48 years on this earth. There are plenty of hotel and resort options in Hawaii; I recommend selecting another option. The service is bad - the front desk is managed like a car dealership. The rooms are very small and at the end of the day multiple additional charges are tacked on to your bill. There are much better options in Hawaii that provide better rooms, better service and at a more reasonable price without costly add-ons.

The facility is old and could really used a total re-do.....inside and outside. Compared to other so-called 4star-plus hotels in the area, this definitely is not one. There are 4 pools. One or two of them should be labeled as children, with the largest pool...the infinity pool.......should be labeled as adult only. This was somewhat held to until the Herbalife convention people showed up with all their children and all hell broke loose. It was no longer a relaxing place. We went to public beaches in the area that were more relaxing. The rooms were ok, but not great. There was only one place to eat which was expensive, but not great. We had to leave the hotel and go to other restaurants in the area. The staff was friendly, but not for a 4star-plus hotel. SORRY....we will not be staying at this hotel again,

"Nice hotel close to beach and kona airport"
The overall experience with this hotel is great. The only thing that needs improvement is the bathroom: there's a rusty spot inside the tub. It looked like someone tried to patch it up but it was not done correctly thus the repeated rust The location of the hotel is great! 30 min to downtown kona and 20 min to airport. However if your main focus is the volcano national park you should probably stay at the Hilo side since this is about 2 hours away from the park Would definitely come back again. Affordable, great staff

Had a wonderful family trip to Hawaii. The view from the hotel just can't be surpassed. You have a perfect mix of 4 great pools and are right on the ocean with a swimmable beach. My favorite - you can relax at the pool and look over and see the ocean - all the atmosphere with none of the sand.

Since our 2 stays last year, there are more umbrellas, daybeds, even hammocks poolside. The staff were more than willing to make sure we got the room that we requested. The location of the hotel is steps away from 2 shopping centers which is a big plus. Will be planning our vacation next year at this hotel soon.

I can't believe they charge you for using the microwave oven. This is just outrageous. If they want to encourage visits to their restaurants they should make efforts to improve their cuisine instead of charging guests for cooking their own meals. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Close access to A Bay. Right next to the Kings shops and queens market place.

"Nice hotel on the beavh"
I booked this hotel because it has a beach on site. I have a young kid so convenience is key. There are three pools so there are plenty of space. Loved the Yoga on the beach. What a relaxing way to start the day! The photo stand did not return two of my messages but when I finally went down to the desk, they were able to take some quick shots and gave us the photo print. It would have been nicer if they could schedule the 30-minute photo session earlier. This hotel is not too big like what other hotel review is saying so I thought it is easier with young kids. There are King's Shops and Queen's MarketPlace right next door. The best thing is the supermarket at Queen's MarketPlace so you can stock up with essentials with very reasonable prices. I did not know about the supermarket before I arrived. However, restaurant choices are limited. I would love to see more restaurants than fancy shops.

Although it is a really nice hotel I would not recommend it. The reason why is the value for money. For the hundreds of dollars you practically get nothing. Not even WiFi. You have to pay the RESORT FEE. Ridiculous. This is 30$ + TAX! So at the end you get a nice bill what you have to pay although you already payed a lot! The breakfast (which is not included) is delicious, but for that price (buffet 29$ + gratuity) it must be. Simply it doesn't worth it especially if you wanna see the island, because in that case you will hardly stay at the hotel. But to say sg positive as well the hotel itself is really nice. The infinity pool is heated, so you won't freeze, not even at night. All the surroundings, with the lava rocks and paths are amazing. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is nice. But we will definitely not return.

"Nice location on the beach and close to shops."
The hotel is comfortable and the resort has a lot to offer. I was there Mother's Day weekend and I think there was a discount rate for locals so the grounds were unusually busy. I didn't enjoy my meal at the bar side pool. It was better to go to Roy's at the Kings Market. The $30 resort fee charged in addition to the base hotel rate was an unpleasant surprise. I should have read the details on Expedia more closely before booking.

This Hotel is 10-stars on a 5-star system. What's not to like? Beautiful views, beautiful property, and nice friendly people on staff. We love this resort! As a proud Hilton Honors Member for 20 years and staying at MANY Hilton properties, this one is the premier showcase for Hilton, in my opinion. I call it "Disneyland without the rides."

"Needs some major upgrades"
We were disappointed that there was one restaurant and only the bar and grill (poolside) during the day. The grill did not offer simple burgers, sandwiches, salads. Most was appetizers. The restaurant had +5 prices with the food being very average. My husband and I waited 45 minutes for a bowl of oatmeal, we noticed we weren't the only ones waiting. One of the spa's ( jacuzzi) looked like it had mold embedded in it. Three of our days around the pool they were constructing pool cabanas where they would obstructe the view of the ocean and beach.
