My wife and I stayed five nights at this Inn. We stayed in the Tropical Dreams room #3. It turned out to be a great base for us to explore the east side of the Big Island. The breakfast served on the veranda was a great way to start the day. There is no A/C so we slept with the...

I was really looking forward to my stay here, and had high expectations after reading the reviews. Certainly the location is breathtaking, and the view from the room gorgeous, but there were coakroaches in the room, which made me very uncomfortable waking on the carpeted floor. Also, I was disappointed with breakfast, I mentioned well in advance I was vegetarian...

The Palms Cliff House is a wonderful sea side (cliff side) Bed and Breakfast. Being able to sleep with your private patio door open at night to listen to the Pacific ocean sounds was wonderful. Breakfast each morning on the veranda was so beautiful and breathtaking. Got to meet the other guests there in the morning as well. The grounds...

Exquisitely furnished! Delicious breakfast,.beautiful sunrises over the ocean. Even with great directions, it's a bit hard to locate.10-15 minutes into Hilo. Pretty far from Kona, but an easy drive to the Hawai'i Valcanoes National Park. Just up the road is the Hawaii Tropical Botonical Garden for riding segways, zip lining and seeing the Rainbow Falls. Not much in the way...

We stayed here for 3 nights while touring the Hilo area and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It's only 15 minutes from Hilo and the Akaka Falls State Park, which is beautiful, is very close. The volcano is about an hour away. The Inn sits on top of a cliff overlooking the Pacific. We fell asleep listening to waves crashing...

I was in town (Hilo) for business and this was definitely the right choice for accommodations. The room was clean and large so we were not trying to maneuver around our luggage. Our October stay was breezy so the cross winds sufficiently cooled the room. Read the Inn's directions carefully so you don't pass it by. The drive to and...

My husband and I stayed here one night after a side trip to Hilo from Kona. The grounds are very lush. Our room (#8, Paradise Views) was quite large, with a large shower/toilet room and also had an in-room Jacuzzi. The balcony was good sized with a fantastic view of the coast. Breakfast was plentiful, with local dishes. The Inn...

Loved the view of the ocean and the grounds were very pretty. Great hospitality and breakfast! Just a little costly room charge and with add-ons like roll away $50, 2 breakfasts $30. Great weekend getaway place for couples, honeymoon, etc.

“We were on the first floor and had a decent view. I'm sure the rooms above us had a better view of the bay but I was not disappointed.”
