My husband and I got married at LLBC in June 2016 and I realized that I never posted a review. It was the most beautiful place I have ever been! Just steps away from the water filled with marine life. The cottages were spotless, cozy,...More

Great drinks, good food, live entertainment...and perfect sunset views. The LLBC is a "must do" on a visit to the Big Island's Kohala coast.

Ambiance was amazing- food was adequate. You can’t beat the views and this is an amazing beach location! The food was ok - nothing spectacular- but we still enjoyed the visit!

Fabulous location out in a lava flow, right on edge of beach. With wonderful huge trees. Food was yummy, atmosphere, just right. Dress as you please. Upscale food, not stuffy surroundings. Music and hula dancer too. Would go again, next trip.
