Walked in to do some last minute shopping before our flight. There was no AC, and only a handful of large fans blowing. The prices were extremely high and they had a very small selection, except for a million Hawaiian shirt styles. Go elsewhere.

We were looking for gifts to bring home, this was listed as a good shop. When we walked in we were greeted by a girl giving us a shell/stone lei and offered us a cup of water or juice, which was nice. As we started to walk into the store a clerk at the jewelry case kept telling us to... More

We loved being greeted at the door with shell necklaces! My daughters loved the oyster choices, and we walked away with two beautiful turquoise pearls. Oh, and my husband enjoys the shirt we went there to buy for a luau!

It's the same stuff you can get at the ABC stores found all over the islands for lower prices. We walked in, got our shell leis (hence the one star) and walked out. The bathroom was relatively clean.

This business is dishonest. When shopping with my six year old for a setting for her pearl, the sales person tried to sell me a sterling silver pendant by falsely telling me it was white gold. She told me three times that the pendant we wanted only came in white gold, however the tag was clearly marked "SS". When I... More

High priced Hawaiian attire for the most part, although we did purchase some hawaiian coffee. Politely said no thank you to the jewelry sales staff, and they did not bother us.

Just the same old matching overpriced Hawaiian print clothing you can find on any of the islands. I say skip this and shop at some of the great local stores on the island. We shopped local and my son found the coolest vintage Hawaiian shirt ever! And at a great price!

This is a nice shop with a pretty large selection of Hawaiian Aloha gear. It is my husband's go-to shop for Hawaiian shirts. However, I rarely find anything flattering for myself here. I don't want a muumuu and I have curves so many of the spaghetti-strap dresses just don't work. One time several years ago I did find a basic... More

This is a nice Hilo Hatties, there are many others on other islands, but this IS the Hawaiian shop to go to. Beautiful Hawaiian clothing, and items to bring home. When you wear these clothes out, everyone knows the quality and where you purchased them. Watch out for the cruise ships. Find out what time they are docking, because when... More

When you walk in the door, you are welcomed with a Shell Lei. Love the Colorful Hawaiian clothing in Hilo Hatties. It is not just shirts. They have Beautiful Wedding Dresses with matching shirts for the men, childrens clothing, mugs, souvineers, etc.
