Just finished up a fine meal of mahi mahi here at the volcano house in Hawaii volcanos national park. Friendly service coupled with Amazing views makes this a must for the VNP visitor.

The front desk employees were very friendly and offered us a cocktail upon arrival. Our room was so-so and in need of updates, especially the bathroom. The restaurant was out of several menu items and that was very disappointing. I will say, though, we had what could have been a very bad situation turned very good because of trustworthy staff....

This is a must, if you like good food and a great view of a once in a lifetime exhibition of nature at her best. We had dinner reservations for 5:45 so that we could enjoy dinner and when it got dark, we could watch the volcano spew fire from several "safe" miles away. First of all, the service was... More

This trip was on our bucket list and we had a blast. The room was intimate, clean, and comfortable., The view and glow of the crater was breath taking. We did not miss our TV at all. Great location. Everyone (and we met a lot of people) who worked there was awesome., Both the restaurant and Uncle George's Lounge were... More

We loved it. The service was the best of our hotels....it was up there with the four seasons! Everyone was so helpful, friendly and accomodating. The bartenders, front desk staff, cashiers in the stores....they were so nice answering all of our questions. Breakfast was fantasic and very fairly priced. The rooms were nicer than expected, and the location is perfect.... More

I'm not going to lie. This place is very expensive. But....it's also in a fantastic location and the restaurant is not terribly out of line. It's been rebuilt to look historical (around the 1940s) and we had a great time staying there. The breakfast buffet is a reasonable $15 per person and drinks in the lounge are around 10-14 dollars.... More

My wife found out about Volcano House and our travel agent made arrangements for a brief stay while we were on "The Big Island". The view is spectacular, the rooms more than satisfactory (a bit pricey, but worth it) and a beautiful evening meal made the whole experience wonderful. Seeing Mount Kilauea was one of the highlights of our trip.... More

Would highly recommend a one night stay here with a volcano view room. You don't need tv, just as well there isn't one, as you find yourself watching the glow of the volcano all night, even well past your normal bedtime. Staff friendly and helpfull, even a cocktail while you check in.

It goes without saying that the location is priceless and unique. I feel that the relaxed style and the basic rooms go well with the national park theme. We stayed with three in a standard room and it was a bit crowed but still comfortable. We liked the little bathroom and its tiled shower. The "cheaper restaurant" wasn't that great... More

Very difficult to rate because: 1 the location is truly unique and well worth the price. If you have a crater view room, or even just sitting in the restaurant or lounge - seeing the glow of the lava in the night and even just the crater in the day is magical. If you can ask for one of rooms... More
