Our hostess Mary, gave very helpful advice regarding nearby dining and activities. The Sun. a.m. farmer's market was great fun. I'm confident we chose the best botanical garden with her guidance. Our room was nicely decorated, clean, & comfortable. Breakfast offered several choices in a comfortable & scenic setting.

You really must spend a few days on this side of the Island. The Ala Kai is the perfect place to do so. Mary is an excellent host. She greeted us upon arrival and made our stay wonderful. Her breakfasts are sublime! She picks fruit from her own garden. She will give you ideas and information about the area (waterfalls,...

Ala Kai is a great B&B that served as an excellent base for traveling in the Hilo side of Hawaii. Mary is a wonderful hostess and makes a delicious and filling breakfast each day.

Great little B&B with a beautiful view of the ocean. Mary was wonderful, and her banana-stuffed French toast was amazing! As an added bonus, their business card gets you 10% off at Kaleo's restaurant in Pahoa!

Maybe it's the cocooning hammock on the lanai, or the persistent sound of the ocean's surf pummeling the lava cliffs across the street, the warm rainfall or the chorus of chirping tree frogs....It is all or part of the real meaning of Aloha. That's what defines the Ala Kai Bed & Breakfast 30 minutes south of Hilo, on the The...

Getting there is easy but a car is a must. 20 minutes from Hilo airport if traffic is good. We used our own Garmin gps as a guide and it worked a treat until we got the last road. It told us to take a right when in fact you need to take a left. On arrival we were met...

Ali Kai is a wonderfully comfortable B&B where our rooms are well appointed and spacious, and the bathroom is equally well appointed and roomy. There are many examples of our hosts thoughtfulness, ranging from a fridge, microwave and picnic basket for our use, to iron and ironing board, sunscreen, creams, balms and shampoos in the bathroom. We stayed in the...

Spent 6 nights over two legs of my trip at this great little spot. Stayed in Bamboo Room and Aloha Room. Both were super comfortable and quiet with everything I needed. Easy drive to volcano, local zoo / rain forest and Hilo town. Even had a few protected Nene birds crossing the road! Beautiful pool in front for a refreshing...

We spent 2 nights at the Ohana Cottage which is the cottage behind the main house. It had everything we needed. Big enough to fit our family of five and had a kitchen and living room. Loved sitting outside on the lanai in the morning listening to the birds, very private, felt like we were in the jungle. Breakfast on...
