Great bed and breakfast
Reviewed 2 months ago

This was our third visit and each one has been special. The driveway is hard to see but once you find it the rest is fantastic. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The setting is wonderful and reminds us of old Hawaii. Although it is close to the road, it is very quiet and creates a sense of isolation. Breakfast was excellent and the rooms clean and comfortable

We had a marvellous stay at the Inn. John is very gracious, helpful & friendly. All the staff are friendly and welcoming. The grounds are beautiful. The frogs singing at night was wonderful.
The breakfasts were delicious 😋. Thankyou for making us feel so special. I recommend this place.

A very nice house with beautiful garden and perfect rooms. The rooms are spacious ours with a gas chimney, this gave some extra ambience and more important within our stay weather was rainy, we had a heated room. The owners are very nice, prepared the breakfast every morning- thanks for the perfect stay!

All other B&B pale by comparison

Man, I've been ruined for life. The Palms Cliff House is unbeatable for location, beauty, grounds, staff, artwork, comfort. Photo is from the back Lanai, where we couldn't wait to get back to every evening to sit and talk, dream, play Scrabble. Breakfasts were delicious with generous fruit servings, fresh baked goods, and wonderful main entree. Staff was also generous in adjusting breakfast for one of our group who has special dietary needs. Just didn't want to leave and hope to return frequently!

Comfortable and peaceful for 3-nights

A beautiful small inn/B&B about 11 miles north of Hilo and 5 miles from Akaka Falls park with luxurious rooms set amidst lush grounds and high on a cliff overlooking the ocean.

We stayed for 3 nights in January in room 5 which was on the end on the top floor. Our very large room featured a great covered patio with a nice ocean view and was quite large and furnished in royal Hawaiian style.

- large comfortable room on the end on the upper floor
- fairly quiet and located high above the ocean with great views
- tastefully furnished b&b that was well taken care of (or course there are small things here and there if you choose to be picky)
-I liked the location and plantation style architecture
- breakfast is included and way more food than we could eat-one day was French toast, another omelet or any style eggs. Each day in addition there was muffins or pastry, fruit, coffee and juice
-very clean and tidy
-good wi-fi coverage (no AT&T cell service here)
- location was 15 minutes north of Hilo so close to restaurants but far enough away for peace and serenity

- huge shower but the extreme water saving shower head left me a bit disappointed
-small window style a/c kept the room cool enough but also was quite loud all night
