You start your morning enjoying a delightful breakfast with fellow travelers, while enjoying a incredible view of the ocean. After breakfast, take a walk along the volcanic cliff side along the ocean, maybe you will get lucky and see whales traveling along the Hilo coast line. We stayed in the Bamboo room, very clean and comfortable with a wonderful bathroom.... More

From the front porch where sumptuous breakfasts were served, we basked in the grandeur of the ocean and the crashing waves on the cliffs below. Our gracious hostesses were so welcoming and helpful in providing road recommendations and activities, restaurants in the Volcano area.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life then this is the place to stay. You won't be able to get to the beach there either but there is a pool and places to see are just a short drive away. Highly recommended if you are still "thinking about it". I wanted to steal... More

Shakespeare the cat and Mary escorted us into the Bamboo Room for a warm welcome. The room is compact, but the shower is a destination of its own! A well-equipped picnic basket was supplied, but the nearest supplies were in Pahoa, 11 miles down the road. The good thing is, that 11 miles seems shorter every time you drive it!... More

Tropical Hawaii beauty at an affordable price. My family and I are notorious for finding affordable lodging gems and this was an outstanding value. We were greeted by the adorable furball Shakespeare the kitty when we arrived. He continued to greet us at every breakfast and swam in the gorgeous pool when we went to it.....we are kitty people so... More

We booked three nights at the Ala Kai for our Hawaii trip (along with a stay in our timeshare on the Kona coast), and we are so glad that we did. It was the perfect place to stay for visiting Volcanoes, Hilo, and all of the things to see on this side of the island. The room (Bamboo room) was... More

The owners Pat and Mary are very nice and helpful. Homemade breakfast is served each morning at 8 AM. We were staying in the 2 bedroom cabin, and it was lovely. The kitchen was well equipted, and there is a large terrace with lounge chairs. Will stay there again, and can recommend it to everybody.

The room was clean and that's as much positive things as I could say. The bamboo room was extremely small with minimal storage. We checked in late, but had no trouble getting into the room. The bathroom had a great size shower, but no where to put any toiletries. We woke up to a prepared breakfast and was quickly greeted.... More

My husband and I brought my aunt to the Big Island to celebrate her 85th birthday. What a wonderful surprise to stay at the lovely Ala Kai.
