Airport Transportation from Kona

I am flying into Kona airport and staying at the Waikaloa Village Hilton. The hotel charges $55 to pick me up. I am wondering if that is a good deal, or if it would be cheaper to take a taxi? I'm arriving around 11:30 pm if that makes any difference in taxi availability. Any information is greatly appreciated!

If you compare 30 +/- bucks taxi to Kona then 55 bucks to Waikoloa area sounds very reasonable.

One advantage to no car is you won't have to pay for parking or valet but your day trip adventures will be limited to other ground transport.


I'm thinking it has to be a SpeediShuttle van at that low cost so check to make sure what pick up times or wait times will be when you arrive at the airport. If you are happy w/ just walking the Hilton property and doing package tours you can make a reasonable tour of the island that way. If so try to avoid the larger buses or you will be herded around like cattle.
