Entering Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort can be quite awe-inspiring, as one takes in the waterfall, falling down a rock wall below the grand amphitheatre. You can walk under the waterfall through a walkway between the rocks.

There is a monorail to take you around the resort, though it can get quite crowded, and there is some interesting artwork, such as a replica of a huge ancient brass sculpture of a chariot from Thailand. Walk the entire hotel, along its paths, and check out all the artwork! It is absolutely gorgeous to walk at night too, with all the tiki torches.
On the point called Buddha Point, there is a large grassy lawn over the sea, giant Buddha sculpture on a hill, and other sculptures. It is a peaceful spot, and beautiful at sunset. Watch the waves spray high in the air by the rocks. You might even see a whale! Keep your eyes on the whale watching boats to try to spot one. The white coral rock mixed with black lava rock at the shore is beautiful. Stroll the lush gardens nearby and see the funny birds with plumes and turtles laying out on the rocks.
The dolphins in the lagoon are super cute to look at and it's amazing to be able to see them for free while walking around the resort grounds.There are several grand resorts in this area called the Kohala Coast. Have a swim or walk the oceanfront trail at Mauna Kea Hotel Beach.
After, have a meal and do some shopping at Queens' Marketplace and Kings' Shops.

read a bit of the book Exploring Lost Hawaii before you go. Knowing the fascinating history enriches ones experience immeasureably. You can read it to your kids if you edit out the scary parts. Try the first chapter on Kamehameha's strange childhood. his main temple is near the hotel, you could go at sunset - its... huge. The Chiefs, when not warring, vacationed on these shores:)

My kids are 8 and 10. We loved it. The lagoon had such easy snorkeling that my 8 year old was able to learn in no time. Turtles, fish of all kinds, rays all abound there. Lots of water slides too in the pools but we mostly hung out at the lagoon. A-bay is a ten minute walk off the property. Lots of coral there and good snorkeling as well
