We had a wonderful stay at Palms Cliff House. The views were breathtaking, staff friendly and breakfasts wonderful. Homonu is about 20 minutes from Hilo. Be sure to visit the Hawaii Botanical Gardens on the scenic route.
On,y regret....that we couldn't stay longer.
This place is gorgeous. The property is large and well maintained. The rooms are big and very comfortable. I would recommend getting an upstairs room if possible because they are air-conditioned. Expect rain on this side of the island - it is quite beautiful and...More

This superb location and gorgeous inn was one of the highlights of our Hawaii experience. The room was lovely, and the breakfast delicious. The peaceful setting was balm to the soul and the view has to be the best on the island. The grounds are...More
We enjoyed every aspect of the inn, from the roosters crowing to the little green geckos running up and down the trees. The room was incredible with a cool breeze constantly blowing from the nearby sea and the sound of the waves at night was...More

Congratulations - The Big Island (BI) is a great place visit and if you have the time drive around it. Each side is different and therefore interesting. Kahala, to the North (historic in early Hawaii and Kamehameha I). Hilo (closest to the Cliff House) is a jumping off side to the active volcano. Hilo is a locals version of Hawaii and if music is available you'll have to ask. When we were there in Feb. we went to see the lava flowing into the sea. First from the land (rented bikes and rode maybe 4 mi on gravel road to see "pearls" or red/orange glowing spots across the flow and then took a boat out the next day to see a huge spout dumping lava into the sea. Very impressive! Night shows may only be found on the Kona side. Driving around through Volcano Nat'l Park, South Point, into Kona, Waimea, and back to The Cliff House. BI is a great island to visit, develop special memories, and "kick off" a long life together. This is just scratching the surface but hope it shows you both there's a fun time to be had. Enjoy and Again Congratulations!!
