The Palms Cliff House Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Honomu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 February 2017

My wife and I stayed five nights at this Inn. We stayed in the Tropical Dreams room #3. It turned out to be a great base for us to explore the east side of the Big Island. The breakfast served on the veranda was a great way to start the day. There is no A/C so we slept with the patio door open each night. The only annoying thing is there is a rooster that starts crowing every morning at 430. The owners need to serve chicken so the guests can have a more enjoyable sleep. The scenery and grounds are well maintained. We even saw whales swimming around in the bay while we were eating breakfast. Chelsea (sp?), in the front office, was very helpful in suggesting things to do, see and where to eat. All of the staff was very pleasant. The only other negative is that the Inn is 20 mins north of Hilo which made going to dinner and having drinks a concern. We solved the problem by finishing our sightseeing and grabbing food to go. The Inn has a dining room open for guests which made it nice to end the day sitting on the veranda, eating our take out and drinking wine.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and had a decent view. I'm sure the rooms above us had a better view...

I was really looking forward to my stay here, and had high expectations after reading the reviews. Certainly the location is breathtaking, and the view from the room gorgeous, but there were coakroaches in the room, which made me very uncomfortable waking on the carpeted floor. Also, I was disappointed with breakfast, I mentioned well in advance I was vegetarian but he cook forgot to bake a veg quiche, and the meat was replaced by extra fruit. So the breakfast ended up being bananas, pineapple, scrambled eggs and a muffin....For more than 300 usd a night that certainly not what I was expecting....

My husband and I stumbled upon this beautiful bed & breakfast. We had such an amazing experience Waking up every morning to a stunning ocean view along with a complimentry breakfast on the lanai was a perfect way to start our day. I loved the French toast and fresh papaya! During our stay we felt at home. Our tropical room was very comfortable and clean.
It was truly relaxing. I just wanted to say thank you to Chelsea who checked us in for your warm greeting and hospitality.
A paradise getaway!

The Palms Cliff House is a wonderful sea side (cliff side) Bed and Breakfast. Being able to sleep with your private patio door open at night to listen to the Pacific ocean sounds was wonderful. Breakfast each morning on the veranda was so beautiful and breathtaking. Got to meet the other guests there in the morning as well. The grounds were beautiful as well with many tropical plants, trees, flowers and ponds.

Exquisitely furnished! Delicious breakfast,.beautiful sunrises over the ocean. Even with great directions, it's a bit hard to locate.10-15 minutes into Hilo. Pretty far from Kona, but an easy drive to the Hawai'i Valcanoes National Park. Just up the road is the Hawaii Tropical Botonical Garden for riding segways, zip lining and seeing the Rainbow Falls. Not much in the way of night life in this area and I'm not sure about even in Hilo.

Room Tip: Ours was 2nd floor #8 "Paradise Views". Fireplace, wrap around private porch, 4 poster be...

We stayed here for 3 nights while touring the Hilo area and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It's only 15 minutes from Hilo and the Akaka Falls State Park, which is beautiful, is very close. The volcano is about an hour away. The Inn sits on top of a cliff overlooking the Pacific. We fell asleep listening to waves crashing against the cliffs. Breakfast is included and was delicious each day. The room was very nice and comfortable. If we ever come back, I would book a room here again.
