we stayed in a bungalow, just me and wife, very nice setting, screen window with cortines, bathroom was a little small to shower but did it's purpose... we had a small fridge that fit all our small groceries and drinks.
very nice pool/jacuzzi area, keep in mind it's a clothing optional... which we loved!
health food, tons of yoga and meditation classes... fruit-trees around
wifi on most of resort, our bungalow had a weak signal but it was enough to keep up with email.
For the Traveler who is looking for privacy, a location off the beaten track, and surrounded by nature. Artistically furnished and designed. Well-priced. Lots of space for this one-bedroom guest cottage. A donkey (fenced in), rabbits (with a large enclosed habitat) and a hen (who has her run of the place and is tame) provide company. A continental breakfast is also provided, a plus. An experience unlike any other. Make sure to arrive during the day (i.e. while the sun provides light) so that you can find this place, as it is located on a gravel road with no lighting. Truly rustic!
Arron's has two main attributes. First of all, it's a pleasure to sit out on a back porch sipping coffee, or the beverage of your choice, while gazing at a real Hawaiian backyard. In this place you don't feel boxed in. Even the room was roomy. The second attribute was the positive treatment we received from our hosts---the innkeepers Alan and Penne. They made us feel welcome and they helped us get the most from our visit to Hilo. Let me add a few other things. They provide unlimited coffee, a quality breakfast, and an amazing beach that is within walking distance. The facility could use some refurbishing but it is clean and comfortable.
We were staying on the other side of the island but wanted to stay one night closer to the volcanoes. We booked our room but when we drove up I thought "Oh no! It was an older hotel in only who knows what condition." I found out what condition after we checked in and went to our rooms. It is an older hotel in brand new condition! Everything was in excellent condition. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, and the staff friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure staying there.
If you're looking for a typical post-card tourist trip to Hawaii, stay in Kona. Uncle Billy's Hilo embodies the Hawaii of yesteryear. If you want to experience what Hawaii was like before radical over development started destroying the islands, this is a great place to be.
We had made arrangements at another location but were very unsatisfied so went back to where we had stayed before at Hilo Hawaiian and had a very good stay. When I checked in I was given a room with 2 separate beds but had requested a king size bed. Calling down to the desk they had a nice king size bed room available and we had a great stay there. It was very comfortable and we were grateful for the a/c.
If you want serenity, this is the place. The house is on the top of the hill overlooking Hilo. There are only 4 rooms for rent. We knew other people were staying there but we never heard anyone. The room was clean & the bathroom had been recently updated. We will definitely stay here again.
