Like many gushing reviewers note, Holualoa Inn is a unique property. In a recession climate, however, this inn might not be the best use of your travel dollars. This B&B seems to depend on tips - to this end, your bill at the end even includes your, ahem, "expected" contribution to the staff's salaries. Nothing illegal or immoral with this,... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our Inn and the team of people who care for it. We are grateful that you gave us the opportunity to serve you recently. Regarding gratuities, many guests have asked us "what is your policy?" In an effort to assist guests, our departure folio reads: “While gratuities are not required,... More

Beyond the incredible house/property, views of Kona, outstanding breakfasts, beautiful pool and fabulous location --- the staff at the Holualoa Inn are the tops. After 5 nights, this B&B became our home away from home and the "staff" truly our new friends. They thought of everything -- from suggestions/maps of where to eat/visit to snorkeling and beach equipment to a... More

To be “the BEST b&b we’ve ever stayed in!” makes us feel so proud. We are blessed with 30 acres of beauty, over 5,000 coffee trees, and all the wonderful amenities associated with the property.

My husband Ron & I travelled for the 1st time to Hawaii and stayed in several different B&Bs during our 2 week stay. Our original plan was to spend 3 nights at the inn. We were so impressed that we extended our stay to 7 nights. None of the other B & Bs we stayed at on the island could... More

If I were rich, this is the way and place I would want to live. Unfortunately, I was only able to pretend on my honeymoon (Sept 2011). The property was gorgeous and the views spectacular! The Orchid room was the cheapest room but was still beautiful, clean and comfortable and we had a view of the ocean. Breakfast in the... More

We have stayed here twice and there is a reason for the return visit. It's called perfection. From the moment of arrival, every detail is attended to.

Aloha! So here you are looking for your “home away from home” in Hawaii. You need to look no further. Seriously, if you book anywhere else you will not find the level of beauty, comfort, genuine care, and the all encompassing spirit of “Aloha” that you are seeking!

First time back to the Big Island in many years and found this gem for a far-too-short stay of 4 nights. This is no cutesy B&B....it is like a beautiful Balinese-Hawaiian home that anyone would love to live in...what a luxury!!!

there are no words to describe the wonderful place that is the Holualoa Inn. Perfect location, warm welcome, beautiful rooms, gorgeous view. The property is a paradise and you can feel to be in paradise, and if this is not enough the breakfast will definitively convince you. we will come back for sure!
