The Palms Cliff House Inn - Honomu, Hawaii, 96728, United States
  • Kahili Pa Lima Flank the King Bed in Room 5

Dear diary,

Today I stayed at The Palms Cliff House Inn. I’m not sure if I’ve ever enjoyed my time at a bed & breakfast more! Their attention to detail surprised us- it seems as if they knew just what we needed even before we arrived. This being our fourth “hotel” in two weeks on the Big Island, it is safe to say that this was the most enjoyable place we’ve stayed. I don’t think we can keep our crush on The Palms Cliff a secret for long, but sadly we must depart. Until next time…

Thanks for a wonderful time! We can’t think of a better place to have spent our honeymoon. Everyone was available & helpful, the room was beautiful, the house and grounds are magnificent, and the location is ideal. Oh, and the breakfasts were great too--- Carrie particularly enjoyed the scones with lilikoi glaze, and I loved the lychee. Excellent amenities (DVD collection, beach towels, mats, backpack) – all in all a great place!

For once the guidebooks were correct… The Palms Cliff House is a “gem”. There is a serene calmness here ---- with a comfortable bed and sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. Great place to celebrate 40 years of wedded life.

The Hawaiian views Suite is the perfect place to come back to after a long day exploring the island. The setting is awesome & the breakfasts delightful. Wish we could stay longer.

My husband and I wanted to treat ourselves upon his return from Iraq, and what a treat it was to stay at your beautiful bed and breakfast. The breakfasts were remarkable, the amenities met our every need and the view speaks for itself. What a treasure on the Big Island.

We have truly enjoyed our honeymoon here in your beautiful suite. This is a delightful inn tucked away in paradise! We looked forward to your delicious gourmet breakfasts every morning. And each night we relaxed in the Jacuzzi after a long day of adventure and snuggled up by the cozy fireplace. A perfect honeymoon retreat. Thank you for allowing us to be your guests.

After staying at your wonderful establishment on two separate occasions during our 2½ week stay on the Big Island, we both agree that our nights here were the most relaxing of our trip. I have found myself wanting to recommend to everyone I have met that they stay here, but restrained for fear of never finding a vacancy again! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Warm Wishes,

We had a fabulous time at your B&B. Our room is beautiful with an amazing view. We especially enjoyed the hot tub. Your breakfast is definitely gourmet and well worth getting up early for. Even the non-breakfast eater couldn’t resist. Thank you for making our first visit to Big Island very memorable. We hope to come back in the near future.

No one could have explained to us, no pictures could have shown us, and nothing could have prepared us for the beauty and hospitality we found here at The Palms Cliff House.

Thank you,

Wow! What a way to kick off our Hawaii Vacation. Our weekend at the Palms Cliff was truly one which exceeded every expectation. No amenities were spared; especially with the bed. We both can’t remember two nights when we have slept so peacefully, and that truly is a benchmark of a B&B.

Oh!, and the whales were real cool, too!!

Wow, what a magical experience. Lying in bed every morning & watching the sunrise was priceless. The view is unparalleled & the room spectacular yet so cozy. The grounds are gorgeous, we couldn’t wait to come home at the end of the day to relax in our room. Aah…the breakfast- what can I say except we looked forward to getting up to see what was being served while staring out at the ocean. Thank you for a memorable experience & for creating such a heaven!

My eyes fall upon infinite greens and beyond to the sun-drenched ocean. A symphony of birds-song accompanies me and I wonder: could there be a more perfect place on this planet? This is how I dreamed paradise to be when I was a child among the often grey streets of London. To be here, in this place, on this island, feels like the ultimate arrival. And so terribly hard to leave. Walk with gratitude, gentleness and love in your heart.

This incredible inn for us has been the definition of ideal. As we leave today, we swear to each other that our return will be swift. We initially booked 3 nights, but within hours we realized the inadequacy of this, and altered other plans to allow more time at palms cliff. The breakfasts (or should I say ‘morning desserts’) have been memorable, and the view from the suite Jacuzzi unforgettable. Thank you for everything…

We came to spend 2 weeks in Paradise & we were NOT DISAPPOINTED. We found Palms Cliff House on the internet & decided to spend our whole vacation here. It is our 20th anniversary & the peace & quiet of this spectacular locale has been perfect. We never thought we would be setting the alarm so we would not miss the wonderful breakfast, but set it every day we did. Palms Cliff House makes for an outstanding vacation, the area, the room, the people. What more could anyone ask for.

This is the most Beautiful Room we’ve ever seen!! It is so cozy and warm with so much attention to detail! A very special place to spend our honeymoon!! We loved the Breakfasts- so tasty and kept us going thru the afternoon! Thanks so much for creating this beautiful spot of Heaven on Earth ~~ everybody’s smiles warmed our hearts as well.

We really loved it here ~~ and hope to return again in the winter sometime ~~ maybe to see some whales & dolphins in the Bay… for another year…

Thanks Again!

The Palms Cliff House was the perfect way to spend the last few days of our honeymoon. The energy of the staff is amazing. The beauty of the grounds and our view are AWESOME! We look forward to spending anniversaries in the gorgeous Hawaiian Views Suite – Wow!

My new husband Ken and I both agreed that this is the nicest place we’ve ever been to or stayed at. We are both sad to be leaving Palms Cliffs and Hawaii too. This has been one of the most memorable times of my life. Thank you!!
