The Palms Cliff House Inn is about 20 minutes north of Hilo, perched atop some majestic cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The staff was really friendly and accommodating and friendly. The front side of the inn, near the parking lot, leaves a little to be desired, but the back-side, overlooking the grounds and ocean is really amazing. The sunrise was one of the most beautiful we'd seen and the geckos sunning themselves on the palm leaves were the best.
It would be an injustice to not mention the amazing breakfasts. Wow! home-made every morning by a really nice lady who was friendly and funny and very sweet. We had a quiche one day and banana pancakes the other and both were probably the best breakfasts we've had on the islands. They are certainly a selling point - and rightfully so!
And then there's the frogs. We were told people either love them or hate them. We never saw one but there were clearly millions of them! We loved them. The rooster next door who decided when it was time to get up? Maybe not so much, but he had his charm too.
If you're looking for something quiet and out of the way on a beautiful setting then you'll likely be happy at this property. You're a good day trip from Volcanoes National Park and and easy commute into Hilo.
