Location is great. Right in front of ocean n 15 mins from Hilo downtown. I had been to Hilo couple times n love this quiet little town. If you like snorkeling n crowds, please stay at Kona where is more commercial. Frankly speaking, there is not that much going on in Hilo compare with Kona. I just want to be... More

We stayed a week, and everything was perfect. We really tried to think of constructive criticism to make this a more balanced review, but haven't come up with anything. The rooms were clean, comfortable, quiet, and opened out onto a balcony that we couldn't bring ourselves to close the door on. The breakfast area looks out onto the ocean, the... More

We just left the great Palms Cliff. The Staff was top notch, they gave us our space but helped us when we asked. We upgraded our room to an open suite without any problems. The spa tub was worth the price. The breakfast was worth the price and the cook was a gem. The owners were open and friendly... We... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in April 2015. Our experience could not have been better. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is first rate and the ocean waves hitting the cliffs below our room were very relaxing (we slept with everything open, which we highly recommend). The staff were also very helpful with recommendations on places to visit and... More

Very relaxing home. We had room #3 and it was comfy & perfect. I loved listening to the ocean during the night. Also the are a lot of birds chirping away. Relaxing to me. Alisa serves breakfast in the morning and does a nice job with a personal touch. Grounds are beautiful, attached are a few pictures. I recommend instead... More

We stayed here for 3 nights so we could see the east side of the island. Very convenient to Hilo, volcanos, waterfalls, and ziplines. Our room, #6, was large and clean with an amazing view of the ocean from our lanai. A nice peaceful setting with excellent accommodations and staff. Alyssa made a wonderful breakfast each morning and gave us... More

My wife & I recently spent 2 nights at The Palms Cliff House Inn, and were very pleased with the facility, meals and staff. When I booked room #8 I initially felt it was a little expensive for the Hilo side of the island, but after enjoying our stays and breakfasts at the Cliff House, I felt it was a... More

We celebrated our 22nd. Anniversary at this B+B near Hilo (where we used to live). Great place to just get away for a few days...listening to the wind, surf and birds (fortunately the coqui population has been kept away!). Daily breakfast menu cooked to order with fresh selections from the Hilo Farmers' Market. Personal touches upon arrival (a printed Aloha... More

I definitely love this place. Every time I go to Hilo, this is the place I would like to stay. Great ocean view from my patio. Staffs there are friendly and helpful. B'fast are delicious, and made from local food. Room is spacious and quiet. Easier if you arrive at day time as the entrance is not very visibly at... More
