We 1st discovered this cozy, tranquil inn about 7 months ago and always look forward to returning - we wish we could live here! The tropical decor of the rooms, the ocean views, the lanai, and breakfast area: it's all wonderful! Breakfast was great and the service excellent! Also appreciate the in room frig, and the use of dishes, glassware,...

An abrupt turn off the highway heading into Hilo, and suddenly you are under a canopy of tropical green. You are winding along a curved drive through wonderfully landscaped grounds literally right alongside the blue Pacific towards a lovely white Victorian style old Hawaii home. The decor is all old Hawiana. It is close for hiking and exploring Akaka Falls...

This is the perfect place to stay for Hilo...I looked around before booking and opted for charm vs chain...which can be risky...but in this case, the right choice. The in town chain hotel is hard on the airport and helicopters are buzzing overhead continually--be warned. But this property is peaceful and the 15 min. ride into HIlo for dinner is...

I fell in love with this property! It made me feel like I was visiting someone's secluded and romantic Hawaiian estate on the water... We slept with the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. We watched the sun rise from our bed - the lanai is completely private. The homemade breakfast prepared by one of the girls was...

The Palms Cliff House Inn is a wonderful retreat just 10 minutes outside of Hilo, HI. We pulled into the secluded and well manicured grounds to find a southern plantation style restored home and guest rooms. Located on top of the ocean cliffs, we enjoyed the gorgeous sights and sounds of the Hawaiian surf. The room was vary spacious and...

We didn't really know what to expect about this place. As soon as we got there we realized we were in a really special place. The setting is very estate like and right on the water. The rooms have a luxurious sensual and comforting feel to them. We added a night because we didn't want to leave. Our first night...

I selected the Palms as a birthday and Valentines Day surprise. I had no referrals or recommendations from anyone, prior to our stay so we both felt the anticipation. The unknown can be fun and our stay at the Palms was just that; fun, relaxing, and a place we'll return to in the future. The room was clean, food was...

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...
