We stayed at the Hale Kai for 3 nights at the end of our 3 week stay in Hawaii. It was a wonderful way to end our trip. This bed and breakfast is quiet, friendly, and very comfortable. Ricardo was very helpful when we needed advice on where to go or what to do on that side of the island.... More

I couldn't say enough good things about the owners and this B&B. Rick made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. This B&B is beautifully landscaped and has one of the best views of Hilo Bay. We stayed for 4 nights during our honeymoon in May,2014 and wish we would have stayed longer. There is nothing like... More

This B and B is now my favorite in Hilo as we've stayed at hotels and other B and Bs over the years for comparison. It's located out of Hilo a couple of miles right on the water, up on a cliff. So much fun to watch the Bay from a distance, view the fishing boats out on the water,... More

Be advised that in my review, I am not comparing this B& B experience with our experiences at self contained resorts. For example, on Maui our favorites are, in no particular order, Grand Wailea, Sheraton, Hyatt, Kea Lani, Westin, Marriott, KBH, Ritz. Even the Maui resorts I listed are different. Most likely, B&Bʻs are all different and there might be... More

We has the pleasure of staying two nights in March 2013. The B&B is well-situated, every room has a lanai with a sweeping ocean view (but as others have mentioned, the driveway can pose a bit of a challenge). The owners were always pleasant to interact with and offered good tips for dining and sight-seeing in the area. Breakfast was... More

Nice ocean-front room where I've seen sunset & sunrise and spotted whales in the distance for a number of times. The B&B is only a short drive from the airport, downtown, Walmart, Macy's, rainbow falls, and botanic gardens. Nice breakfast. Bed was extremely comfortable. The only downside was that the prize was a bit too high considering the room &... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in February. It's pretty easy to find, just off the main highway. It was only about 5 minutes away from downtown Hilo where there was shopping and restaurants. We stayed in the Heritage Room. The shower was really nice! And the room was a good size with a tv. There is... More

We stayed in Hilo for sightseeing mountains, volcano and other. Owners were friendly and helpful. Food was good. We had breakfast with other travellers on the deck outside over looking the water. We would see whales while eating breakfast at times. We stayed in Moana Room for 3 nights. The location was quiet. We did not have trouble sleeping from... More

We came to Hilo to spend the night as we were going for a helicopter tour first thing in the morning. Upon arrival were surprised by the amount of stairs. My aunt has difficulty with stairs and uneven surfaces, maybe think twice about this location if this is an issue for anyone in your party as there are many stairs... More

Great location overlooking the surfing beach. Ric & Maria have fine-tuned their operation: everything works well, great site seeing and eating recommendations. The main positive was whale watching while enjoying coffee and breakfast on the deck. The main negative would be the incessant calls of whistling frogs at night.
