Not at all in a good location, there are few restaurants and even fewer retail shops close by. The hotel itself was difficult to find - there's no English signage that can be seen from the street and the building does not stand out.
The lobby is dark and our room shared that same fate. It appeared to have been decorated by an escapee from Las Vegas - tacky and overdone.
After a series of firm matresses in other hotels in Taiwan in which we stayed, we found this one too soft and the pillows far too voluminous. They were very uncomfortable.
Like the Citizen M in Amsterdam, the Waikoloa has some naughty channels in its lineup. Unlike the Citizen M, these will catch you by surprise as just being there, with no warning of what you will find. We weren't offended by it, it was just a surprise to suddenly come across them while channel surfing.
Even if your taste for breakfast is Asian, you may be disappointed and if you're inclined to go for western cuisine, you'd be better off to skip the breakfast option and trek a couple of blocks to McDonald's.
Our room was cleaned daily to a high standard and the front desk staff was both efficient and courteous.
We stayed in 4 hotels in Taiwan this trip. This ranked dead last.
