Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa
- What's Included
I booked this hotel 6 months in advance. At the time I was warned the hotel was being remodeled. The remodel was to be complete the day after I arrived and I would be treated to a brand new hotel. Not true. Only 2 floors of rooms were complete. The remaining 4 floors were very shabby. The restaurant - shabby. The bar - disgusting. I had an episode of illness after having 1 pineapple rum drink at the bar. To make it worse, half the hotel is being converted to timeshares. The 2 towers are being gutted as I write this. Trying to relax by the pool is impossible through the sound of power saws and hammers. I complained to management, I get a daily phone call from them saying that are sorry but can do nothing. DO not book this hotel if relaxation is your goal. On the positive side, the staff is excellent, the location is excellent, the beach is very nice. Food is good.
We stayed two nights at the Waikoloa Marriott in a garden room in the Kamehameha Wing. The room was comfortable and well appointed - after a long day of adventuring the bed was very welcome and felt great!The bar at the hotel is open to 1030pm and they serve food; They captured the Aloha spirit with their Pineapple Margarita and Haupia (Cocoanut Rum) drink. Delightful, but maybe a little pricey.Big Plus: The multiple pools and jacuzzis are open 24-7!!! Really great!Historic fish ponds by the Beach are interesting and fun to look at. We spotted three eels, many fish and a Spotted Eagle Ray in the fish pond! Very coolOverall standard Hawaii resort fare executed with Aloha!
Stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. Grounds are incredibly beautiful with lots of pools and beach front area. We spent most of the days away from the hotel site seeing, and were only in our rooms at night. Room shape was a little on the narrow side and while we had a partial ocean view, it was not much, the way the balcony is shaped it directs your view in a certain area. Parking was plentiful and secure. Loved the location in that it was close to the mall. We didn't eat a single meal at the resort--not really our style so we enjoyed going next door to the Island Gourmet and picking up yogurt and fruit for breakfast and then even got sushi and poke for some dinners. Rooms were quite and didn't hear our neighbors or hear hallway doors.
The hotel is clean and very well-maintained overall. The room is as you would expect from a Marriott - clean, comfortable but nothing spectacular. It is a little far to reach the beach from the rooms - you have to walk past the pools, the lava fields, and the fish ponds, but the beach is definitely the nicest we saw. The best part of the hotel is the service and the lobby. Our bartender - Peter - was awesome in giving us some local insight into the island and what it offers, complete with photographic illustrations and green sand/rock show & tell.Our alternative options were the Royal Kona, Sheraton and the Courtyard - all of which really did not have a beach at all (we checked them out during our stay at Kona as well), though the Royal Kona and Courtyard are in the touristy part of town with better access to more restaurants and shopping. Although the area (Waikaloa) is a little far from the city, it is well worth it if you are actually looking for a typical beach resort.
Very good hotel but also very expensive we went over christmas and new year room was exeptional sea veiw and mountain veiw, entertainment was rubbish for us new year entertainment was a head banging disco for youngsters who seemed to appear from all over the island very dissapointed with that nothing for older people. It would have been nice to see hoola hoola girls and fire eating guys of hawaii with a live band but didnt get any thing like that the whole 2 weeks we were there, very dissapointing. We went out to eat mostly because it was to expensive to eat at the hotel. Hotel staff were very helpfull and polite but just seemed to want your money for trips when you could do it all yourself with a hire car far far cheaper. Over all a very good holliday but very very axpensive lots more cheaper appartments in kona and a big choice of eateries where as waikoloa beach is very issolated you need a hire car there is no bus service at all.
