We visited the Cliff house last fall and really enjoyed the experience. Our room was great, breakfast was the best of our visit to the Big Island and the location is perfect. We would not hesitate to visit this B&B again!

We stayed there for two nights in April 2012, and had an absolutely great experience. The room was nicely decorated, with a gorgeous ocean view. Very clean too. We arrived after 5pm and easily found our envelope with the keys. The whole setting was breathtaking and we found ourselves taking a number of pictures in the beautiful gardens. The owners...

Nice converted home with a great views of the ocean. Room was so-so and bathroom was worse, i.e. 80's style mish mash of fixtures. Bathtub was worn out, marginal and no way would we have dared sit in it to enjoy the "jacuzzi". Head board on bed was loose and bed itself was unstable so even the mildest attempts at...

Sorry to hear you did not completely enjoy your stay with us. We do serve a variety of breakfast meats special ordered through our restaurant supplier. I am not licensed to mfg. any meat products, not do I cure my own bacon. I’m not really clear on what the objection is, don’t know any one serving home made meats. All...

The Palms Cliff House did not disappoint--ocean view from our bedroom was spectacular, the bed was so comfortable, the sound of waves and birds (and rooster in the morning!) just added to the most pleasant and relaxing time one could hope for, in a dream-like setting. Perched high on a cliff overlooking waves hitting the rocky shore below, I will...

Spent a week at the Palms Cliff House and can't say enough about its beautiful location (right on a bay, with lush surroundings), friendly staff (couldn't have been more gracious), delicious and creative breakfasts that filled us up till dinner (the butter rum muffins were my fave!), and accommodating hosts (my husband and I both have dietary limitations that were...

This B&B got everything right. The rooms were done as well as any fine hotel, with all the little extras in the room. The owner was polite, warm, and helpful. The breakfast was great, and the view from the room was magnificent. Great romantic setting for our honeymoon!

We had a wonderful stay at Palms Cliff House. The owners gave us an upgrade to a lovely room with perfect views of the ocean. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and we looked forward to breakfast every morning. Fresh muffins and scones, fresh juice and fruit, pancakes, chicken mango sausage, quiche - yum!! The owners were not...

Really nice comfortable inn. It is an inn not a B&B, so not really the atmosphere of a B&B Good breakfasts, nice landscaping, confortable rooms and great views. The Inn provides a small area for microwaving food, dishes etc for snacking on the terrace of your room before an evening out or while watching the ocean. It is a little...
