We stayed for one night at the Dolphin Bay Hotel in Hilo and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hilo is such a lovely town - it's a great place to escape from the touristy Kona coast. The location of the hotel is wonderful - just a short walk down to the main street (don't miss Café Pesto!). It is set amongst lush gardens and avocado and papaya trees. The rooms were very comfortable and large with your own kitchenette. The rooms do not have air conditioning but the fans were fine - it is the cooler side of the island after all. The banana bread at breakfast is super tasty. I also have to make special mention of the wonderful staff who posted my iPad (that I left behind) to me in Australia with no hassle or charge. I was very grateful for their trouble and honesty. Thank you Dolphin Bay Hotel - we will return and next time will stay for longer! Hilo deserves more time.
