Waikoloa Village Reviews

We love Waikoloa Village! There is a good grocery, a convenient gas station, several places to eat and shop, and anything else you may need is just a drive away. Not a super-convenient place if you don't have transportation, though. Also the designated middle and high schools are a far drive. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to live the Hawaii life at a decent cost of living.

I have lived in Waikoloa Village since 2003, it is an extremely small place and everybody knows each other. Waikoloa is only fun for a couple of days or if you are a middle aged rich person... there is a golf course and a store which is located next to a sad excuse of a shopping center. There is nothing for the youth besides a few parks (that are in poor condition) and a pool (with an expensive membership fee). Due to the lack of activities for younger people/teens many of them turn to drugs and alcohol for a good time.On top of absolute boredom you will also need to deal with the harsh criticism that comes from the a lot of the families in this village; the gossip here in unreal. Overall this village is not the best place to be due to inconvenient location, high cost of living, and lack of entertainment.
Everyone is very friendly in Waikoloa Village. When you go to the grocery store, everyone stops to say hello and chat. Every morning you see many people walking their dogs or out for a jog or taking their kids to school. It's expensive to live here, but worth it in the end. As long as you work at one of the hotels, getting to work is easy with no traffic.
