It's been a year since the last tropical vacation, and we were anxious to hop on a plane, feel the sand between our toes and enjoy some good Hawaiian food. This year, we went to Waikoloa, Hawaii, which is on the west coast of the Big Island. We stayed at Kingsland by Hilton Grand Vacations through our timeshare, which has great pools and allows us full access to the Hilton Waikoloa Village just down the street.
