Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa
- What's Included
Really loved staying at this hotel. Only wished I could have stayed longer. Upon arrival we were upgrade to a Cabana suite, which was awesome. Some minor issues with ants but the staff moved quickly to take care of the issue and even gave us a $50 credit. Lovely pool area and fun stuff for the kids to do. Lots of walking paths, lined with the resident lava rocks. They had an infinity pool, a water slide, and a regular pool with a sandy entrance on one side. The best thing about this hotel were the sunsets. Simply AMAZING sunsets to view! The hotel is beautifully landscaped and has a small pond/lagoon just before you get to the beach front. Water temps in both the pools and the ocean were amazing in March. Prices at the hotel are reasonable and they have a gift store and coffee shop that offer many of the basics you could need, to include chips, fruit, and drinks (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic). In fact, I noticed that the prices at the gift shop were actually a bit cheaper than at the local market, so that was a bonus! Overall, a great time and stay.
My group stayed there for 3 nights and i love the service offered by the staff. We were warmly greeted when we first arrive and they look after us the whole time we were there. We understand that there were construction going on in the hotel, but that doesnt stop ud from enjoying our stay and the great service offered.I would highly recommend to stay in this hotel, because they value their customers and its i great location.
My wife and I spent 6 wonderful nights at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott in March. We had a great 4th floor ocean front room with simply amazing sunsets right from our lanai. The property was under construction but since we spent most of our time sightseeing it was no bother for us. We arrived just prior to them walling off the main lobby so fortunately got a chance to see that before they began tearing it apart. It was amazing before so can only imagine what it will look like once they finish the upgrades. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always greeting us and asking if there was anything they could do for us. The room was recently upgraded and very nice. We had the breakfast buffet every morning and enjoyed sitting in the restaurant listening to the birds. The food was great. Lots of variety and although the Malasadas were great the Macadamia sticky buns are to die for!! We loved this location and the accommodations. Just be aware and understand the issues with construction and keep an eye out for when they are complete if that is a concern. A great place to stay!!
We stayed here for our first two nights in Hawaii. There was some construction on the property, but it did not affect our vacation. Check in was done in the business center and the gentleman at the desk was very kind and efficient. He upgraded us to a cabana that was away from the areas that were being refurbished. Our room was very large and had a huge bathroom. The breakfast buffet restaurant was very good and peaceful, not like some of the other buffets in town. The staff was very friendly and the hotel seemed quiet. The pools were beautiful and the infinity pool was actually warm. We traveled around the island and stayed at four different places and ended up at the Hilton down the street. I definitely preferred the Marriott over the Hilton. The Marriott staff was nicer and the resort is much more relaxing.
My family of four had an amazing stay at the Lagoon Tower overlooking the dolphin lagoon a few years ago, but this review is for my stay last week with a group of elementary school students and chaperones who were housed in the Ocean Tower for one night.Upon arrival, the bellmen in the porte cochere were quick to offer great service and unload the groups vans (we had seven of them!) and check-in was fairly swift. Transitioning from the main entrance/lobby to the Ocean Tower could be done in several ways- walking, by the free hotel tram with blasting cold AC, or by boat. The tram and boats are comfortable and timely, but if you miss them, you'll just need to be patient and wait because the walk is pretty far. One older couple I had chatted with had decided to move from the Ocean Tower to the Palace Tower so they could be closer to the main areas of the property, but if you're on a leisure schedule and don't mind the distance then the location of the tower is really not so terrible.A good bit of advice is to take a couple minutes to study the map provided at check-in of where the elevators are located in the Ocean Tower, as the tower is made up of three conjoined rings, and only provide two elevator bays... we had ridden one, only to discover that we had to walk the entire ring to the opposite side to locate our room. The time of check-in was around 5:00 p.m. but the sound of the luggage wheels rolling on the tiled walkway outside the rooms can be quite noisy which we discovered to be most noticeable in the early morning.The double room was comfortable for three girls and myself, with lots of spacious room in the bedroom area, a large hallway, closet and sink area. The balcony overlooked a golf course with a view of the ocean beyond and was very peaceful in the evening as well as morning. Complimentary coffee and tea was available, along with a mini fridge and wifi. One of the biggest suggestion I would make about this particular tower location is if a guest is a light sleeper, either wear ear plugs to bed or request a different tower. I'm not sure if the rooms closer to the ocean were less noisy, but the rooms towards the mountain seemed to house more trees on the interior of the tower ring, which seemed to house the loudest bird population. I could hear birds begin their conferencing and chirping from around midnight, which grew louder at around 4:00 a.m. and even more so as the sun rose. The structure of the tower ring only amplified the sounds of the feathered creatures.... and then early departing guests rolled their luggage upon the tiled floors to add to the chorus. My observation is only based on one night's stay, but that was quite plenty for an adult chaperone who relies on the handful of sleep hours.One more bit of advice, if you need to leave at a certain time when checking out of the hotel, be sure to plan ahead and provide enough time to travel from the Ocean tower to the lobby because if you miss the tram that might put you in a jam. Take a look at the screens near the stops because it gives you the location of the tram and departure times.
