"Dated but worked for us"
The room and facilities were dated but we were out and about most of the time. We spent more time at the Hilton nearby.

"Freindly staff but Hotel a bit tired"
My wife and I stayed there for a few days before a Backroads trip. The stay was pleasant but the hotel could use some updating. (Carpets, etc.). The beach is ok. Not great. Having to get a token card to redeem for your beach towel was a pain. They say the pool is open at night but no way to get towels? The beach chairs were locked together so you could not move them to your own spot. Not a four star beach scene. The two shopping areas in walking distance added welcome dining options. Stayed at Fairmount at end of week. It was much better.

The setting on the beach is really beautiful. The pool and grounds are very nice. The room was a nice size. The outside of the hotel (in front) has a bit of an institutional look.

"Beautiful Facility"
The hotel was beautiful and the service, especially in the dining room was friendly and attentive. Beware of the "special activity pass" that adds $30 a day plus tax to your bill. It is NOT worth it. Also, the meals at the hotel are wildly expensive. "Duh"

"Pleasant, older resort hotel in good condition."
Pleasant, older resort hotel in good condition. Nice to have a lanai overlooking a garden and the beach. However, the bathroom was very small. The duvet on the bed left few options for comfortable sleeping temperature. Two large shopping areas with multiple restaurants are nearby, though the hotel itself has limited dining options.

"Must stay here!"
My boyfriend and I stayed on the Big Island for 6 days and this Resort was by far our favorite! Morning yoga, luau, big beach, nice pools, excellent staff, free lei making class, and a hospitality room! I wish we would have stayed here an extra night. For the price you cannot beat the accommodations. Just a heads up the luau is a bit pricey and you are pretty much paying for the entertainment. The food is not great but there is an open bar for about 2 hours and the education on the Hawaiian culture is very cool.

"Nice but noisey"
The hotel is beautiful and clean however the walls are paper thin, to the extent of hearing a full phone conversation in the next room - including the person on the other end of the phone. Since I was only staying overnight I didn't want to complain. I informed the front desk upon check out and all I got was an apology, not even a complimentary coffee.

"Overpriced hotel that needs updates"
The resort fees and room prices would indicate a first class hotel but I did not experience that. The bathroom was extremely small. The fridge didn't work and when it was replaced it was left out of its cubby. The air conditioning was extremely poor and we were told that it was due to hurricane Olaf. I would not stay there again.

Ice machine was broken entire stay in spite of telling staff 4 times. Bugs in the room on four occasions. We found the staff to be very friendly. Cost of food and drinks was high but quality was good. We thought there should be more value i.e. $30 per day should have included a drink discount or other incentives to stay at hotel instead of going elsewhere.

"Great Hawaiin getaway."
Spent a week in the hotel and toured the wonderful island. It was nice that the hotel was central to everything we wanted to do and it was less that a 2 hour drive to all destinations. We were able to spend time on the wonderful beach almost every morning and enjoy the outstanding sunsets every evening. Thought the price of food at the hotel was a bit high but there were nice budget places to eat just up the road. The concierge desk at the hotel was very nice to deal with and gave us nice advice to enhance our stay.

"Best omelet ever"
Yes, my take away memory from my stay was that the omelet lady at the breakfast buffet made me the best omelet I have ever ever eaten. In case you were wondering, it was egg white, with spinach, mushroom, & cheese. She was a hard working lady, manning four omelet pans and the waffle irons by herself. She was the only one hustling. I felt I was constantly looking around for, and being ignored by, the wait staff at the restaurant and bar. In addition to the best omelet ever was a divine sleep on what felt like a cloud. I think of myself as a firm mattress, firm pillow person but that bed was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the pool, which was long enough to do serious laps and also open 24-hours. There's a nice, swimmable, beach in front, too. The Waikoloa resort community is well stocked with shops and restaurants. It's a short drive to Waimea or the Kohala Coast. I prefer it to Kona.

"Great place to stay in Waikaloa"
Had a great stay at this hotel. Perfect location. On one side is the ocean and a pool. To the other side, there are shops and restaurants in walking distance. The hotel was clean and the service was good. The Hilton down the road is a little more extravagant - it has dolphins outside etc. But if you want a good hotel that's close to the water and don't need a crazy outdoor area, then the Marriott is perfect.

"Cozy room, overpriced food"
Last minute vacation plans changed due to other accommodations wasn't acceptable so moved to this Marriott property. Room was nicely furnished, quiet, and comfortable. A/C wasn't keeping room cool so requested maintenance to check and asked for a floor fan. Maintenance was prompt and serviced unit. Very very limited dining options in area of a restaurant, a walk up beach grill and a market deli in addition to hotel's restaurant. Hotel's restaurant was incredibly expensive and rather poor quality. $60+ for breakfast buffet for 2, $100 lobster dinner for 2 that was way overcooked. Resort was nice with clean pool area, beach area, and activities.

"Bitter Disappointment"
Being a Marriott Platinum member I have a breadth of experience in staying at Marriott hotels. The vast majority have been excellent. The Waikoloa Resort was a bitter disappointment. We had many, many issues so I will list: 1) Called the day before for early check in and Marriott Reward Upgrade - was placed on hold, waited 60 minutes and then hung up due to no answer 2) Since unable to get early check in, we had to check in at 10pm - waited 15+ minutes to check in. Asked about upgrade was "insulted" by them telling me I should have called the day before 3) Room had multiple issues - AC didn't work, refrigerator didn't work and curtain for sliding doors was ripped at the top such that we had push a coffee table against to keep sun light out 4) Attempted to use pool and tried to acquire pool towels only to find out they were closed 5) Essentially did not use any of the resort features plus late check in on Friday and we were still charged a resort of $30 per night - total rip off

"Great location."
The only bad thing to say is the $30 daily resort fee is a scam. It should be wrapped into the daily hotel expenses so your vacation ( that was hoefully budgeted and paid for when you got there) isn't overshadowed by unexpected fees. The location is fantastic, the hotel is very nice, the nearby shopping and restaurants are a nice diversion when you get sunburned and you can drive anywhere on the island from here. Loved it.

"Not the Hilton"
Not a bad place, we stayed here this year as it was closer to Kings and Queen's Marketplaces. We stayed at the Waikoloa Hilton last year. The best part of this hotel is the view of the sunset from behind the fishponds. Other than that, it's kind of an "eh" hotel. Functional. Nothing special. The grounds are clean and well kept. I found the pool to be odd. What I'm assuming is the color of the finish in the pools makes them look like like stagnant pond water. I'm sure it's clean, I'm just saying, aesthetically, it's kinda gross. The staff were superb. Of particular note, the valet staff were superb. Really friendly, helpful, just generally upbeat. I looked forward to talking to them everyday. One exception to the outstanding staff is the almost comically surly girl who works at the coffee shop. She needs to work on her "Aloha spirit". Nothing like getting your coffee with a scowl. So, overall, not bad. But I'm going back to the Hilton next visit.

Cabana was not in good condition. In short, lots of bugs, ac did not work well, dirty vent, toilet loose and nosiy, you can hear loud footsteps and noise coming from cabana on top. Pool had bad food service, took 30 minutes to get a waiter over to order, 30 more minutes waiting for food. Old trays left out on pool tables for long periods of time and waiters would come by and not pick them up. Had to wait 2 hours for pool towels. We paid in advance for tickets for Lua and was advised two hours before that they had moved it indoors. Not the experience we were looking for. We canceled and got our money back.

"Excellent (fees can add up)"
We stayed for two nights and had a marvelous ocean view on the 5th floor. The resort itself is beautiful. The grounds are very well kept and the view is fantastic. Couple of things to keep on mind. The resort, as probably any resort, has a few hidden expenses such as the $30 activity fee. Also, the beach at the resort is a bay, so no waves, don't think that you'll be surfing or anything along those lines.the water is refreshing but you really can't snorkel. Aside from these small items the resort is great. It is surrounded by shops and restaurants for easy evening entertainment. None of which are included in the price tho.

We stayed for the first few days over in Kona and then decided to change hotels to the Waikoloa area. This was a great hotel choice. The area had close shopping and restaurants, and nice areas to walk nearby. The hotel itself was perfect - large and beautiful pool area, never overcrowded. Beach area and activities right off the pool area was also large and never crowded. We would definitely choose to stay here again, and definitely the Waikoloa area!
