First I want to tell you that the views of the falls were so nice. You get breakfast made to order and you can sit outside with the falls right there. It was a great way to start the day. While we were there I wanted to go swimming in the pool at the base of the falls but there had been a tree
that fell and blocked the way. There was no other way down to it and if it is open when you go the staff will have you sign a waiver. There is also a bamboo garden that identifies the different types of bamboo in the garden.
That said, the place is about 4 1/2 miles down a private, poorly for the most part, paved road. It scared the heck out of my wife late at night going back. If we went back to Hilo, beautiful as the room and setting was, we would go someplace a lot closer to town.
