I have never felt so welcomed and appreciated by everyone on staff as I felt at Naniloa, and I've stayed in a lot of hotels.
It's not the most up-to-date hotel, and the rooms could have used a good reading chair besides the desk chair, but the rooms were modern and elegant.
This is now my hotel in Hilo, HI. I will be back! :)
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.
Very nice, comfortable place with great view of the ocean. Very quiet, private. Helpful staff. Great breakfast available for $16 extra. It is on the Hilo side of the island, so expect a tropical rainforest. A few minutes away from the water falls at the state park (Akaka). Also a few minutes from a really cool hike down to the ocean, I think it's called oneota or something--there's no sign, just a pull off--it's on a short "scenic drive" loop about a mile toward Hilo, next to the Botanical Gardens. Nice public beaches are available in Hilo, which is a ten-minute drive, several are good for swimming and snorkeling and we saw a bunch of big sea turtles at one. You are 45 minutes from the Volcano National Park, so that is an easy day trip. Also about an hour and a half in the same direction from the Black sand beach, which is something good to see and also has sea turtles.
