10/10 Exceptional

We were only in Hilo for two nights but the beauty and wonder of the place, including our family studio at the Dolphin Bay had us longing for a longer stay. The room was perfect for 3 adults. The kitchenette was nicely stocked and everything was clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and we enjoyed the banana bread and the papaya in the morning. We would definitely stay here again.

The hotel had true Hawaiian feel to it. It was very roomy and had all the amenities we needed. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The family loved the fresh banana bread in the morning and the perfectly ripe papayas available in the lobby. The cats were even super friendly.

This was a beautiful family stay for a family of 5, all adults. The staff accomodated greatly giving us a large room, and the reception hospitality was attentive and personal. They had fresh whole papaya's set out in the morning with banana bread and coffee. The balcony was useable, and rooms had screens on windows for good airflow. They also had a small garden area to wander. Overall, this was an affordable, clean, accomodation...leaving pleasant memories!
