We live in NY , we are over 60 and we are sophisticated travelers. We sensed that Big Island was not meant to be visited in a 5 stars hotel ( which we would do elsewhere) . We deliberately chose to stay in a B and B. Our choice was Hilo because of the proximity to 3 places we absolutely... More

From the first moment Tim and Jami went over and above to ensure we had a great stay. Our room was neat and clean in central Hilo.

Don't let first impressions fool you, once you get past the gates a tropical oasis awaits you. The rooms were urban chic and the open breakfast concept ideal.
