Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It was a great experience to be so close to an organism that you usually are not able to be so close with. I learned a lot and enjoyed being able to interact with them. I highly recommend it.

    Glad I picked this coffee farm tour of the 650 coffee farms in Big Island, although I'm sure there are much less than 650 tours available. This was a one of a kind experience, as Hula Daddy has their own q grader, or certified coffee expertise, which we were informed there are only 12 on the whole island. She was a fascinating person, with skills and knowledge you are unlikely to come across again! If you are a coffee fanatic or connoisseur, this is definitely the better coffee tour for you. They distinguish between quality and quantity, and Hula Daddy is on the end of quality over quantity. They explain the subtle technicalities in their coffee farming, that are very unique and insightful of the expertise and craft that goes into creating the most quality coffee. Other tours (I did go on 2 tours) were more general, although just as fun. It depends on what you are looking for! Personally, I prefer the niche knowledge over general information. Our guide and the owner of Hula Daddy, was very personal and amusing. I will say, as a non-coffee fanatic, I personally enjoy cheaper and flavored coffee more than their quality crafted coffee, but to each their own!

    We had a decent time at the Saturday Hilo market, though I prefered the Maku’u market on Sunday. Parking was easy and we got some good produce, but we were disappointed by the cooked food selection, and touristy goods offered.

    What fun to see seahorse born just days ago, feed seahorse, and have one wrap its tail around our fingers. I learned very much about seahorses, and it was fun for all. The tour group was large, so it was a little less personal, however very informative!

    We were amazed at all the work that goes into getting vanilla! Who knew?? Now we do and we won't take it for granted. Nature is truly amazing! Lezleigh was a great tour guide and is very enthusiastic. I love plants and I learned a lot here.

    Although I see some reviewers complaining many stores here are closed ,we very much appreciated having this shopping center just down the street when we stayed at Mauna Lani Point. My daughter and I enjoyed poking around the beachwear shops and grabbed her some flip flops. But the biggest draw was definitely the Foodland. Really solid selection of products, whether you want to pick up prepared foods or ingredients to cook at home, and staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. They made every trip to the store A+. And we loved the selection of local products, esp. the chocolate and dried fruit.

    I have been there numerous times, last one November 2019. Vera and her husband are great people! Always fine artwork to look at and purchase! If you miss Hawaii like I do, can't wait until this is over so I can safely hop a flight and return to my favorite place to visit, just get on Vera's email list. You may see a piece of artwork that catches your eye and reminds you of your past vacations. If you do, just buy it!!!!! Ya need to bring the Aloha to your home for awhile!!!!🌈🌞🌸🏵️🌺🌸🌊

    Located along a frontage road on Pahoa-Kalapana Road, this church, painted Sea-Foam green with white trim and white corrugated roof has a unique history.
    Constructed in 1927, this church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
    Faced with destruction in 1990 from a lava flow the community banded together and moved this piece of history to its present location.
    The interior is a single nave with a double row of pews.
    The upper interior of the church was painted by Father Gielen, a Belgian Priest.
    The painting on the lower walls was accomplished by George Heidler, whose idea it was to create depth behind the altar.
    In 1995 the church was closed by the Diocese of Honolulu after many of the parishioners were displaced by the same eruption that resulted in the church being relocated. However, the liturgy is conducted the first Friday of each month by on island priests who volunteer to conduct mass.
    Souvenirs and religious items are available for a small donation which assists in the continued upkeep and restoration of the church.
    If you are in the area stop by and visit.

    We liked Kings Shops but personally liked Queens Market Place better it had more stores and a better variety. The stores were not very interesting to us but the General Store was 10/10 we loved it! We probably went 5 different times and I would like to give a shoutout to Delson who works at the General Store he was so nice and helped us with whatever we needed. Overall I only go for the General Store I don't really like the other places.

    I had a great time there. 2019 may I was there by myself, a 33 yr old white male. Locals were friendly & even the young ones. I was talking & hanging out with the natives there. Everyone was smiling & had good vibes.

    Given the novelty of this winery, we had to give it a try! The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable about their wines, and it only cost $12 for 8 tastings.

    The atmosphere was very cozy, and we were surprised by how much room there was inside. The tasting flight included their Symphony Dry, Pinot Noir, Volcano Red, Symphone Mele, Volcano Blush, Hawaiian Guava-Grape, Macadamia Nut Honey Wine, and Infusion Tea Wine. I loved the flavors of local fruits (such as jaboticaba) in some of these wines, but I wasn't a fan of the Infusion Tea Wine. In general, these wines run sweeter, not dry. After our tasting, my husband and I each enjoyed a glass on the patio, along with a cracker & cheese tray.

    Great place to kick back and relax over a glass of wine!

    What a treat! Off the beaten path with lots of wildlife and beauty along the way. Jess was our tour guide. What a shining light. She loves her cacao trees and sharing all her chocolate making knowledge. We learned so much! AND…we tried lots of chocolate. Great adventure.
