The view, the unit, the location, the amenities...I could go on and on.
My wife and I have stayed in Waikoloa a number of times. We have also stayed in Maui in Kapalua (Gold villas) a number of times...Kolea is far and away the best unit and property we have stayed at yet.
The Kolea complex is impeccable. The grounds and amenities are in amazing condition and the proximity to shopping restaurants and the beach is second to none.
We rented unit 16J which is a top floor unit (all the units have 3 floors). I would recommend the top floor as the views are better but the first and second floor units are also nice.
The check-in experience is easy and hassle free. The access that you get to the Hilton Waikoloa Village next door is an excellent perk for those couples with kids and those adults who are young at heart.
My wife and I are already planning our trip back in 2016.
Aloha / Mahalo,
