The Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Island of Hawaii was built in 1986 and exudes 80’s excess to this day. There’s a monorail. A freakin’ monorail, Disney style. Not to mention a water slide, waterfalls and larger than life Buddha’s that adorn the scenic campus grounds.  Barring the questionable “swim with the dolphins” lagoon, there are plenty of ways to enjoy and interact with Hawaii’s natural beauty on the sprawling grounds.

Dining

The food at Kamuela Provision Company was way overpriced, but ultimately you’re paying for the view. We liked the pizza and vibes (and prices) at Tropics Ale House, a short walk from the main Hilton campus.
