Editor’s Review of Hilton Waikoloa Village

Upon arrival at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, located in the heart of the Kohala Coast, parents may be overwhelmed by the sheer size of the property. More than 1,200 rooms, spread out across 62 acres and three towers, with both a train and boat service to get guests around the resort, can make the property feel a bit like arriving at Disney World. It certainly is a massive property. But as such, there is a little bit of everything for guests of all ages.

The expansive property also features an interesting art collection in the walkways connecting the various towers, which include the Lagoon Tower, Palace Tower, Ocean Tower and Main Area. The $7-million collection features cultural pieces from around the globe, and makes long
... more walks worth the effort.

The resort is divided into three different towers. The Palace Tower is closest to the resort's convention center, and most often used to house business travelers. Ocean Tower is removed from the activities around the lagoon and features an adult pool, making it a bit quieter and better suited to the more adult visitors. Families are best suited to the Lagoon Tower, which is closest to the kids' pools, the lagoon beach and Dolphin Quest. Rooms with dolphin views feature balconies, which overlook the ocean and the dolphin tanks. Watching the dolphins play in the early morning hours can be quite entertaining -- book one of these rooms, if you can!

Ocean and Dolphin Rooms
Located in the newly renovated Lagoon Tower and overlooking the dolphin pool, lagoon and ocean, all rooms face the water and provide two queen beds or one king bed.

Ocean View Rooms
These rooms provide ocean views and private balconies with two double beds or one king bed. Deluxe rooms are the best for full ocean views, as standard ocean views also partially overlook the resort.

Resort View Rooms
The lowest priced rooms feature views of the golf course, gardens or mountains, and include private balconies and two double beds or one king bed.
