Top Tip: If you're looking for good food in Hilo, overcome sports bar prejudices and go to Cronies Bar & Grill. Their Hawaiian wraps are to DIE for.

Watching the sun come up over Haleakala was probably the most excessive of my early morning expeditions, because on that one I had to be ready to …

The state of Hawaii is made up of over 130 islands spread over 1,500 miles of ocean. Of these 130, eight are considered to be the "main" islands. Oahu stands apart both home of the state capital, Honolulu, and because all the others in the main island chain are known as the Neighbour Islands …

Hi family!

Em Hilo deixamos nossos biquinis e sungas de molho, e fomos explorar um outro lado da ilha - o dos vulcões. De fato choveu um pouco, mas nada demais. Nosso hotel ficava Península de Waiakea, nosso quarto tinha uma vista incrível para o mar. 

Chegamos na quarta-feira à tarde, deixamos as coisas no hotel e fomos dar uma …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Naniloa Volcanoes Resort Hilo



    Hawaii Naniloa is supposed to be a 2 or 3 star hotel but there is anything 'starish' about the way they keep their rooms or bathrooms.

    Keeping the room clean is the basic standard that any hotel should maintain but don't be surprized to see a hair in ur bathtub and mildew around the washbasins!!!


    A Worn-Out Hotel


    I stayed at this hotel on Nov 11/12 2003. The bathroom was very old and the metal bathtub stopper was stuck in the " drain " position. All carpets appeared worn, and hallway carpets were stained. Was awakened at 6am as the room alarm clock went off, though I had not touched it the day before--a very basic sign of inattentive housekeeping. Its too bad because the building is on a nice quiet street on one side and is on Hilo Bay on the other side. Don't know who owns this place, but they're not exactly on top of things here.

    You'd be better off at the Bates Motel


    We knew we were in trouble when there was no one to greet us at the bell captain's podium in the front of the hotel. After checking in, I had to ask the clerk if anyone could help us with our luggage, to which he replied, "Let me see if I can find someone." A woman showed up, recruited from some other area, and played bellman for us. The hotel itself is in terrible disrepair, with streaks of black mold all over the outer surfaces of the building. In fact, the hotel is so dirty that we actually spotted vegetation growing out of a corner of the building itself. The plastic bar furniture and the pool lounges are all overed with black mold. (A little Clorox would work wonders, folks). The rooms are musty and don't feel clean at all. The bed spreads, I suspect, have not been cleaned since the Carter Administration. A couple of people told us that the Naniloa was the best hotel in Hilo. If this is true, it's sad indeed. Stay there at your own peril, but be very afraid.

    Great location/needs work


    After reading the previous reviews, I was a bit apprehensive about staying at the Hawaii Naniloa but when we got there we were charmed.

    The location on the water is great (definitely pay the extra for an ocean view room, you wake up to views of Mauna Kea and Hilo Bay). It does need work but if you are looking for glitz, you should stay on the Kona side of the island. Hilo is laid back and easy going which is what we were looking for. Based on other reviews, I might try the Hilo Hawaiian next time if the price is right. I would definitely stay at one of the Banyan Tree Dr. hotels.

    Loved the Naniloa


    Nainiloa Hotel in HiloStayed 5 nights at the Naniloa in July 2003, found it to be a wonderful place to stay. Older hotel, but room very comfortable. Staff very helpful, parking very convenient. Wonderful food. Easy to find from the airport. Ours was a corner room right on the Bay. Fabulous.The only downside to the trip was Harper's Car and Truck rental. Be sure to take their insurance, they find lots of ways to rip tourists off.

    Needs a good scrubbing


    We stayed at the Naniloa for two nights (Aug 23,24 2003) as part of an inexpensive package side trip from our primary hotel in Honolulu. The Hotel has the look and grandeur of a first class hotel, grand entrance and lobby, beautiful grounds and great location. BUT as you get up close, the place hasn't been cleaned, painted or maitained in many years. Rugs are dirty and threadbare, exterior paint is peeling and covered with mildew, bathroom fixtures ancient and barely functional.



    We booked this stay as an fly/drive overnighter from another island.



    stayed at naniloa hotel for one night in july2003. first impression of the hotel was their lobby which was quite nice and large. Their garden and pool area was gorgeous. Well kept, with the ocean incorporated into their garden, just beautiful. But then we enetered the room. Well i was glad that i only stayed one night. The carpet was disgusting. Stains everywhere! large ones, small ones...just everywhere. The chairs were old and seem to have that permanent dirty grey look. The bathroom fixtures were gettign that crusty look too. bleech. The staff as friendly and helpful though. and there is also a complimentary shuttle to the airport (10 minutes away). the price was cheap, but I wouldn't stay there again.



    The Hotel turned out to be what we expected (Frommers/other reviews). The employees were nice and the room was clean with the exception of the carpet. They should have gone with another choice in such a wet environment. It was a good base for our tours of the island.

    I found the hotel really comfortable, they treat just like home. It wasnt any thing to fancy but what do you expect, its layed back hawaiian style.
