We visited Volcano for one night while keeping our room on the Kona side at the Outrigger Keauhou Beach Resort. You have to send a check of US dollars ahead of time and then they send you directions how to find the place (although it isn't very difficult.) The main building has the office and maybe a couple rooms, but we had to drive a mile or so to get to our room which was a complex of wooden buildings. To get to ours, you go around the front building down a path lined with tree ferns and other rainforest plants. Ours was a duplex of sorts with large windows at the corner of the room with the rainforest immediately outside. At night they have landscape lighting that makes the view magical. The bathroom has a heated towel rack that is necessary for your towel to dry (except when you leave the room the electricity goes off, so that doesn't help the towel dry or your batteries to charge either). The wooden paneled walls made for a very cozy room, but the pale bedspread did not add to the ambiance. A Hawaiian print would have made the room just wonderful. There are coffee fixings and a fridge, but the room isn't designed for cooking (no sink except in the bathroom). It had a comfortable bed and was just what we wanted for our Volcano stay, plus wi-fi that worked!
