    My husband and I stayed at the Waikoloa Marriott October 1 - 6. We were greeted warmly at the valet and every interaction we had with hotel staff was positive. In particular, Debb at the front desk was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the property. R.J. At the valet was speedy in getting us our car when we felt like venturing out, and Michael at the bar took good care of us. The property itself is beautiful and well-maintained. Uncle Mike at the water slide was very entertaining and energetic with all the kids, cheering them on and providing a bubble machine. So fun! We loved the infinity pool too. We will definitely be back next year! Aloha.

    Beautiful Beach!

    Place is nice and quiet. Not much to do but pool and beach. There are two small shopping malls nearby which was very convenient. A trolley is also available for $2 each way. It’s only worth it if it’s too hot outside. The beach is gorgeous! Reminds me of Maldives and Tahiti. It’s almost as blue as their beaches. During high season, this place can be very hectic. Come during off season so you can fully appreciate and enjoy. High season would be very difficult to find a place to sit by the pool. I’d come back during slow season but not high season.

    A relaxing, surprisingly low key resort in a lovely setting.

    Glancing at the website, I was a bit hesitant to book here at first, fearing a soulless, commercial place. Refreshingly, I was pleasantly surprised. While the architecture of the bedroom wings isn't distinguished, the public areas are light and elegantly minimalist, with pleasing sight lines through to the ocean. On site, one feels respect for the historic setting on ancient fishponds, and also to the fact that the beach itself is public, and a place where resort guests and locals share the space. The grounds are lovely, the beach itself magnificent (though the snorkeling less so), the swimming pools beautifully set into the garden, and the staff restrained but helpful. Overall, we were delighted by the place, and also happy with the excellent food at the central restaurant, and the possibilities to walk to the Lava Lava Club for dinner as well as to local markets. Perhaps not a place for those looking for trendiness or five star pampering (certainly not for high maintenance or loud people!). Instead, a traditional, quiet, lovely place to enjoy an older idea of Hawaii, one that also fits into a classic family vacation paradigm.

    The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed delicious meals in the restaurant with a great ocean view. The pools was perfect for adults and families' with children. The sandy beach offered great walking and close to the Lava Lava restaurant. The location was perfect for shopping at the Kings and Queens market place. We will return again!!

    Expensive hotel stuck in the 70s

    Having stayed in resorts in the Maldives, Bali (W, Alila, Bvlgari), Thailand (Six Senses, Anantara, etc), Sri Lanka (Ceylon Tea Trails, Cape Weligama) and many boutique hotels in Asia, I have high expectations of resorts and hotels here. Especially if it’s Hawaii and suppose to be paradise. Sorely disappointed with the Marriott here. Building and architecture - big block of concrete reminiscent of all resorts built in the 70s. Cold and completely out of sync with the landscape. Some huge austere Corbusier council housing building. Room - basic and old. Calling out for a refurbishment. Bathrooms are so sterile and old. Showers are old style. Just one head stuck at one position. No mobile shower head to use. Restaurant - breakfast buffet. Super basic. Poor presentation. Looks and tastes like canteen food. Not appetising. Had dinner there twice. Hostess receiving us is cold and unwelcoming. Did not even utter a word to us. Just took us to a table and plonked down menus. Decor is equally cold, old and needs major overhaul. Disappointing. But pretty much represents what hotels here are like during our 16 days on 3 islands.
