Featured Resorts

Royal Kona Resort

Royal Kona Resort

This resort has a nice oceanfront location in downtown Kona. Of the three buildings, the Lagoon Building is the quietest in terms of human activity. Because of the layout of the building, most rooms have a view of the ocean. (Of course, just because you can see the...

Volcano Inn

Volcano Inn

This resort is an excellent choice in Volcano. Don’t confuse this with other properties with similar names. The grounds are lush. The rooms are not overly Hawaiian in decor or updated, but they are very clean. Though the rooms vary greatly in size and amenities at...

Kona Coast Resort

Kona Coast Resort

Also known as Keauhou Gardens, this condo complex was built in multiple phases. The units in the first phase (where the rental pool comes from) can best be described with one word—large. Large kitchens, large bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and/or separate...

White Sands Village

White Sands Village

This fairly old condo building is right across the street from White Sands Beach Park, which is usually swimmable. Nice pool and grounds. The buildings are adequately maintained. They get a few extra points for the beach proximity (but don’t expect much of an ocean...

Kumulani at Mauna Kea

Kumulani at Mauna Kea

These low-rise condo buildings in a gated complex house four units each. This was one of the earlier condos finished in the area, and it is very similar to Wai‘ula‘ula at Mauna Kea from the outside, but inside the finishes are not as upscale in these 2/2 units....

Kahalu‘u Bay Villas

Kahalu‘u Bay Villas

These condos are a good value with a few downsides. Large units, decent price, reasonably furnished and a 3-minute walk to Kahalu‘u Beach Park. The negative is the location. Let’s just say it’s the nicest place in the neighborhood, which isn’t necessarily a good...

Volcano House

Volcano House

This hotel is located on the rim of Kilauea Caldera inside Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. Reopened in 2013 after a three-year closure. Before that it was the longest “continually running” hotel in the state. Volcano House opened across the street in 1846 (which...

The Inn at Kulaniapia Falls

The Inn at Kulaniapia Falls

We’re not sure how to classify this one, so let’s start with what it isn't: a hotel, a hostel, or a bed and breakfast (but you do get breakfast if you stay in their rooms). Think of this place as a destination retreat locale. It's only about 20 minutes away from...

Arnott’s Lodge

Arnott’s Lodge

Located just off Kalanianaole Avenue in east Hilo past the industrial area, this hostel is popular with backpackers. They also offer mostly private tours in their vans, since, as they put it, “Most of our guests don’t have cars." (If you book the Mauna Kea Summit...
