I was so lucky to have booked a room for a week with the intention of having the hotel be my base camp for trips to the various sights close by. The clean, simple room was comfortable and quiet which suited my needs, but the...More

Simplicity, atmosphere and delicious food. From outside the Manago hotel looks like it may have only a few days left before it's gone. However, you enter the dining room and everything changes to Hawaii as it was 30-40-50 years ago. The local food served with...More

The atmosphere is old-time, the fare is limited, and the service is indifferent. Drinks are cheap. If you want onions and gravy with your pork chop, you'll have to request that; it's not offered automatically, although it improves the dish quite a bit. Cash only.

I agree with the previous writer. Food and drinks are a bargain. The wine selection is very limited. Their menu is actually written on a blackboard, not printed. Two of us had lunch and drinks for $20.
