Friendly and helpful staff. They took the time to show me around and explained the different accommodations available. It was convenient because I did not need to book in advance. I just showed up and they were happy to help. The place was clean and comfortable.

Great set-up, good location, friendly, helpful staff. Kitchen is set-up well and kept very clean. Only negative here was that the kitcehn doesn't "open" until 8 in the morning, so trying to make quick breakfast before heading out early is difficult. That said, a coffee vending machine with good coffee is available for early risers. Covered outdoor dining and lounge...

We booked 2 nights in the deluxe suite and it was such a wonderful experience. The suite was clean, big, and quiet. No complaints at all. We also went on the Mauna Kea tour which started at 230pm and lasted til around 9pm. Our tour guide Sean was extremely informative. The stargazing was awe inspiring. The hot cocoa at the...

When I first arrived I was pretty hesitant about this place. But once you stay for awhile it sort of grows on you. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Don't look for a TV in your room and defiantly no smoking allowed in your room. They have a smoking section outside and if you want to watch TV...

We found this to be a great place to stay. The price was very reasonable, everything was clean, the staff was very helpful, and quiet hours were honored. We would definitely stay here again. It is located in a quiet area where it is safe to walk, and is quite near to a beach frequented by turtles.

We were a group of 6 travellers who shared a 3 bedroom suite, with fully equiped kitchen and large bathroom. Service was friendlly and helpful. Everything was clean and well organized. Common outdoor lounge was inviting and comfortable. Had access to laundry facilities. No complaints whatsoever; we would stay here again and would definately recommend to everyone.

We were at the Lodge during Dec'2016.Though we planned for all the 3 tours with the Lodge, but unfortunately the weather ditched. We couldn't visit Mauna Kea becoz of heavy snowfall & we were quite disappointed. Luckily there was Ikaika, our tour guide for the other 2 tours (Volcanoes & Waterfalls). We will run short of words for this guy....

We actually took advantage of the tent camping option on the lawn and I was blown away by the state and amount of accommodations. Washers, dryers, hot showers, full kitchen, gorgeous clean out door living areas, Tv rooms, internet, and really kind and gracious service. All for 16 (i think) dollars!! Unheard of. This was a very enjoyable luxury for...

We stayed in a family room which had ample room and provided everything we needed. The accommodation is basic but the service and hospitality could not be faulted. The staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful. There is a great beach a few hundred metres down the road which the kids loved and Carlsmith Beach is nearby which we really...
