Located on the rim of the Kilauea caldera, with terrific views from the south-facing rooms, this is a clean and simply-designed lodge that will remind you of other national park facilities. We really enjoyed it, as it's very centrally located for day hikes in the park. We also dined both nights (and both mornings) in the restaurant, and enjoyed the... More

Top hotel in this unique national park, comfortable and modern rooms. Spectacular views of the volcano and surroundings. Well worth a stay here if for only just one night. Friendly and helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. It has two gift shops too. Breakfast was fab especially if you were going for a days walk, a buffet style choice.

I had the pineapple wrapped fish, my wife did the 'surf and turf'. Both were very good, sides were very good as well. Service from George was good. Banana nut cream pie was very yummy! Our wait time was just 5 minutes without a reservation. Very cool feature was turning the lights way down periodically to allow patrons a great... More

Accomodation was booked in by our travel agent and not what we were expecting however staff were friendly despite there being 3 of us and only one king bed provided in the room. Limited choices for food... We had lunch in the restaurant downstairs. Was okay but nothing too fancy... One of the two dining options was closed the night... More

We had an excellent dinner here in mid-Jan 2015. Thankfully we reserved a day earlier and had a window table. GREAT to see the red glow of Kileuea volcano caldron nearby--- amazing views. Good menu-- limited and focused on seafood, naturally. Really great server who had helpful ideas--- i believe her name was Liz. A bit pricey, but for location,... More

This is one of those things in life that are hard to describe. The view from here at Sunset was outstanding with the Volcano Glowing in the background. This is one of the sites you see but it is hard to describe the beauty, power and horror of nature all at one time. Stay on the rim.

The newly renovated hotel has a lot to offer. It is the perfect location if you want to spend a lot of time exploring the volcano or if you want the unique experience of sleeping next to an active volcano. Though it is a bit noisy during the day, it is very quiet and peaceful at night. Wonderful to sit... More

Yes the location is fabulous, yes the volcano looks amazing and yes the hotel is quaint. However, our lunch in the cafe was most uncomfortable as we were seated at the hottest table in full sun (to the point I was feeling faint!). Hoping our experience would be redeemed by an enjoyable dinner in the restaurant but no. We were... More

Perched on the edge of an active volcano, this hotel is all about the location. The hotel itself is perfectly adequate for what it is - a national park style lodge. No frills, but everything you need to serve as your base camp while you explore the park.

We were not at the hotel, rather the lounge to have a cocktail and a snack. The place was just fantastic. While sipping your cocktail you can enjoy the gorgeous sunset and then a few minutes later when it is darker, the red flames of volcanic activity faraway. It makes a great evening. The lounge area is popular and there... More
