At least I didn’t get roped into a timeshare spiel. Fitness Center is far away. No restaurant or any kind of food options on site. Golf cost extra. Pool is weak. Staff was very unfriendly, except for Gloria at the concierge desk who was a rock star.

Loved being close to Hapuna Beach, our favorite place for boogie boarding. Enjoyed happy hour AND dinner at Pueo’s Osteria, a newer Italian restaurant in the area, but mainly cooked in otherwise. Having a fully stocked kitchen was great, as was having access to free DVD’s,

Mahalo for sharing your vacation experience with us. Nearby Hapuna Beach is a great place to boogie board for sure. I am sorry for the inconsiderate early rising noisy neighbor on the lanai, sometimes it takes a few days for those guests to unwind and slow down onto Hawaiian vacay time. We hope to host you and your ohana again soon. Mahalo, Cheryl Amsbary Resort Manager

The Kohala Suites was a great location for our first trip to the Big Island! We are HGVC owners so we expected to have great accommodations and were not disappointed. The concierge reserved the luau for us at the Hilton Waikaloa Village which was surprisingly outstanding! Kohala

This Hilton property is 3/4 of a mile from the beach. All rooms are fashioned like a small condo and are kept nice and clean. There is a view of the golf course which is nice. The on site pool is small with a bar area but no food. The pool itself is kept very cold so be aware

We love the Beach 🐋🛳
Not sure if “We love the beach” was a question or not; but, if it was, there is no beach at the Kohala Suites resort, but you do have access to the Hilton Waikoloa Village resort, where there is a large lagoon with a massive waterfall and a pretty decent sandy beach. About 5 minutes drive north, you can also find a beautiful beach at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort. You should arrive early though, because public parking is very limited.

"Ask for a room away from the street entrance"
"Typically accommodates vacation club owners, but can be rented. Stay on highest floor if possible to avoid noisy steppers."
"We were on the ground floor. I noticed the floors were hard and cold. If this would bother you, you may want an upper floor"
"This resort is nice and quiet, you can use the provided transport to get around the area."
"Get the top floor or don’t stay here."
