This is easily the best HGVC I have visited. Great condo style accommodation (2br, 2 bath + full kitchen) with all the amenities of a great family resort. The HGVC complex has a couple of nice little pools plus gym, tennis courts, etc., but the main advantage of being a guest at HGVC, is you have access to the Hilton Waikoloa hotel down the street which is the best resort on the island (not my opinion...I heard this from many locals).

The Hilton hotel is an awesome place to take your kids. Huge pools with waterfalls and waterslides plus a lagoon which you have to see to believe. Not world class snorkeling, but a calm pool where you can safely take your kids to see a ton of sea life. We swam with so many sea turtles that my kids got bored of it by the end of the trip.

The only drawback was the Hilton hotel is about a mile down the road. You can walk it, but I wouldn't recommend it with small children. We mostly drove. They will provide you with towels at the hotel with your HGVC card and you can charge food, drinks etc. to your room.

My one complaint about the room would be the (twice weekly) maid service. They did the bedrooms and bathrooms, and not much else. They would hardly touch the kitchen. The suites are quite large and they should devote more time and manpower to cleaning the suites.

Room Tip: Get a building closer to the main reception area. It's closer to the main pool.

This is a great place to stay with families. The staff was very helpful. The unit was very luxurious and had all the required amenities. Would definitely go back to stay here!

We also had full access to the Hilton Waikoloa village swimming pools, which is great!

We went the first week of October 2012. What a great vacation. You cannot beat the acomodations at HGVC. The unit was clean and big with everything you could possibly want. My wife and daughter loved the huge bath tub!
The pool was excellent, not to big not to small just right. The low key environment was exactly what we all needed. For a little adventure we went over to the main Hilton hotel and really enjoyed using that property as well, There we swam with the dolphins enjoyed the pool and went to some nice resturants. One night we stayed in an BBQ'd some steaks on the propane grills outside of our condo.
I'm telling you I love this place.
We went shopping at nearby malls and traveled to the volcano. (snore)
Beaches everywhere! Just pull over and your on the beach!
My happy place!

Just spent the weekend here with some friends and it was great! The unit was new (at least it felt new), clean and quite spacious. We had two bedrooms, one of which was an enormouse master suite with a ridiculously large spa tub. Parking was right outside the door. I think this ends up being a nicer proposition than staying at the Hilton hotel just down the way.

We wanted an apartment with kitchen and laundry facilities and this unit was very spacious for a family of four (two teenagers).

It was well located, with easy access to the shopping centre or the main Hilton hotel. We were using it through Club Intrawest, and used the complimentary facilities down at the main Hilton hotel. The pools and lagoon were just great, and watching the dolphins while enjoying a cold drink was a terrific way to relax. But you can walk into the Hilton and use all these facilities anyway, you just would not get the free towels, or free parking.

We did sign up for a timeshare presentation, which enabled us to get the Hilo card, and make some big savings on several activities that we wanted to do whilst on the island. The presentation was straightforward, relaxed and professional. We were under no pressure, and finished on time - the $ savings we made on our attractions well outweighed the minimal effort for the timeshare presentation.

The Waikoloa Beach resort just seemed more relaxed and quieter that the main resort, and whole area is well designed with walking paths for walking and running in the morning. A walk through the lava trail to the shopping centre is well worthwhile.

We had one slight problem with noise coming from the unit below - we spoke to reception and it was very quickly rectified - a faulty ceiling fan motor in the unit below. These things happen, it is how well the staff deal with it that counts, and we were very happy with their quick response and rectification.

We had a wonderful two bedroom/two bath unit for our college age son, husband and myself. After an exhausting day of beaching, head to The Queen's Market where any type of fabulous gourmet food awaits to cook in your kitchen/bbq or buy prepared meals and dine on the lanai. Even though the club has hordes of families and young children, you can escape to the adult pool, lounge in the water and peacefully listen to the waterfall. The grounds are so expansive, you never feel you are with the masses. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful. They offer late check out and a hospitality room where you can shower and prepare for the sad journey home. The best sandy beaches are no more than a ten minute drive. The Waikoloa Hotel, as well as nearby towns have many great restaurants.
There are only three negatives with regard to the property. You really need a car and have to drive to get to the beach, dining or limited Island nightlife. But the Island is large and offers such a variety of scenery it is worth the adventure. This is important because the Club food is expensive and very mediocre. Lastly, the timeshare presentation was hard sell and a real turn-off for us.

Room Tip: Top floor is the most quiet.

The hotel was very good, large living room, luxious lobby, beautiful scene and quite a few different types of pool. Some pools are there for small kids, with big water sliders.
Besides that, the location was very good too. There is big shopping mall - the Queen's market and one of world nicest private beach known as A Beach nearby. The sunset was unforgettable.
The only thing I dont like very much was the breakfast. The food was limited, taste was so so.
