We spent 2 nights there in November and loved every minute of it! Our room was fabulous, very nicely appointed, and with a jacuzzi in the alcove- pure luxury ! The staff was very friendly, most especially the chef Alyssa!! Not only did she prepare the most delicious breakfasts and served them with a great smile, she also answered any... More

What a great find. Large rooms with whirlpool tubs, all overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this B&B is a lovely respite from a day's touristing, hiking and other activities. Each day starts with a filling, delicious breakfast. Staff are Aloha friendly without exception, and its just a quality facility. The only caution I have is about the safes in each room.... More

We loved this beautiful inn with its wonderful service and breakfast. Alisha, our cook and server provided us with a delicious breakfast and was most accomodating. We would go there again in a heartbeat.

We spent four nights at the Palms Cliff House Inn and enjoyed all of them greatly. The location is lovely, with a full view of the bay. Our room was room #6 - second floor-with AC. We did use the AC at night, mainly because of humidity (you can't have the lovely rainforest setting without it!). the room had very... More

After two days of hiking in Volcanoes National Park, the Palms Cliff House was the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy the fabulous room we had (Tropical Dreams #3), and the view from the lanai. Unfortunately tropical storm/hurricane Ana was being very unpredictable and we had to cut our visit short. The location of the Inn is not... More

Remote is good for those who like privacy. Remote is not good if you don't have a rental car. The Palms Cliff House Inn is just what you would expect in a B&B. The three days we were there we never met the elusive owners, but their staff was excellent. The young lady that prepared and served breakfast was the... More

This was our second stay at The Palms. The first time we had an upstairs room which was satisfactory in every way; this time we chose a downstairs room, which proved to be a problem: no air conditioning. The inn is situated on a cliff overlooking a truly gorgeous rocky bay, so the obvious solution was to open the sliding... More

I reserved the nights of Oct 25th and 26th 2014, but about 2 weeks before arrival my mother-in-law passed away and the memorial service is scheduled for the 25th, so I called to cancel and see if I could get a refund of some sort; however, the person at Palm Cliffs said I booked thru AARP and I needed to...

My husband & I stayed 2 nights at this property. I didn't realize it only has 8 rooms. The property is nice & rooms clean. But the main issue this hotel has is how far away it is from everything, At least 20 minutes from Hilo. They don't have a restaurant nearby. For breakfast they served a plain omelette, sausage,...
