We stayed at the Diamond House - a beautiful, well-appointed house tucked away in lush greenery near Volcano National Park. The house has ample sleeping quarters, towels, soap, shampoo, and kitchen facilities. We loved the loft. There are dehumidifiers in the bedrooms that really have to be run because of the constant high moisture level. Due to my work schedule,... More

We (our friends, my wife and me) stayed here a week ago. Initially we were very wary considering the bad reviews on TA. I agree that checking in late is a hassle especially with the owner leaving the keys in a grocery store. But after checking in, we really loved the place. We were put up in the Jade House... More

We booked 2 rooms at the Lava Lodge and instantly regretted it. Upon our late check in, we had to go to the Thai Thai restaurant (which looked good, but we didn't eat here). We had to pay for the rooms up front, which I'm always a little wary of and in hind sight, I regret agreeing to pay upfront.... More

This place is about as close to camping as you can come, including spiders and the mold you might find no the inside of your tent... including the wet mildew funky smell. Hardly worth it if it were free. Do yourself and favor and stay somewhere else, that's clean and bug free.

Well, needless to say, this place isn't the Four Seasons. Hope they improve the conditions as it's such a beautiful area.

The less expenive rooms are available even during Marrie Monarch festival - if your lucky - not usually. everything is booked. I always book the Jade Cottage or a room in the main house.

Where to begin? Have you ever gone camping? Then you have experienced better accommodations than this shack. Let me start by saying we got the cheapest and ONLY room available on the windward side of the Big Island because it was Merrie Monarch week, so we didn't have high expectations. That being said, for 2 people the "room" was barely... More
