First the good part. The units are large, well appointed, good views of the golf course etc etc. Really no complaints about the physical units and grounds. Very well appointed. Location is good also. It's not on the beach but you can get to the main Hilton Hotel easy enough, however the beach there is odd and actually faces a lagoon. There are better true ocean beaches close by. The main grocery store in the resort complex is frankly very expensive and it's better to drive a few miles to a more reasonable place - It's not far. There are lots of places to eat in the resort and surrounding area. You'll be about 20 miles from Kona so to visit there for dinner takes a little bit of planning, but the road is good and it's a pleasant drive. Lots of positives here.
However there are a few downsides you should be aware of. First the resort charges a resort fee of $25 a day plus taxes. While occupancy taxes are understandable, the resort fee isn't as it basically doesn't give you anything you either can't get yourself or should be included. It's rather like a money grab to be able to promote a lower rate online for booking incentives, and then raise the rate when you arrive. Especially since most of the resorts (including main competitors like the Marriott) on all the islands don't have one. On the money side also, at the main Hilton swimming pool, while if you want to sit in the sun you would be in heaven, but to need any shade it will cost you $100 (not kidding) to get a covered cabana. Rather greedy to provide the only real shade available at such a cost.
All in all we had a very nice stay and enjoyed ourselves greatly. Just can't go 5 stars because of all the hidden costs. If that doesn't bother you, then it would be a 5 star in your book.
