Best Pools at Waikoloa Beach Resort

By January 29, 2024Places to Stay

The Waikoloa Beach Resort is home to the beautiful white sand beach of A’Bay, but many guests often choose to lounge by a pool rather than spend time at the beach.  Here is a look at the best pools at Waikoloa Beach Resort.

Hilton Waikoloa

Hilton Waikoloa may very well be home to not only the best pools at Waikoloa Beach Resort, but the best pools on the Big Island of Hawaii.  While there are several pools at the Hilton Waikoloa, the Kona pool is the most notable one.  It features a large pool that is surrounded by loungers.  On one side of the pool is a slide that kids love.  There are several jacuzzis located around the pool.  On the opposite side from the slide is a sand bottom kids pool.  While enjoying this pool guests also have access to a restaurant and bar.  There are also cabanas available for rent around the pool if you desire.  All of this is set just off a bluff that offers endless ocean views.

Waikoloa Beach Marriott

The Waikoloa Beach Marriott offers two larger pools in the same area with loungers surrounding the pools.  If you get there early enough you can also enjoy a thatched umbrella.  On the north side of the pool area is a slide for guests to use and on the south side is a sand bottom kids pool.  Just a short walk from the pool is a place to eat lunch as well as a bar to get your favorite cocktail at.  One of the greatest attributes of the pool at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott is that it is just steps away from the white sand beach of A’Bay.

Halii Kai at Waikoloa Beach Resort

Halii Kai offers the most popular pool of all the vacation rental communities at Waikoloa Beach Resort.  It is nestled on a bluff and offers spectacular ocean views and in the winter months it is a great location to watch whales.  The pool itself is a multi layer resort style pool with some baja shelfs.  Another great attribute is that it is the only pool at a vacation rental community that has a restaurant and bar just steps away from the pool.

Kolea at Waikoloa Beach Resort

The Kolea Beach Club is the only pool located at a vacation rental community that offers direct beach access, which also gives it great beach and ocean views.  In fact, it is the closest pool to the beach of any pool in the Waikoloa Beach Resort.  It features an infinity pool, a lava rock jacuzzi, as well as a sand bottom kids pool with a waterfall.  If this is not enough, guests of Waikoloa Vacation Rentals at Kolea also have access to the pools at the Hilton Waikoloa.
