“Extremely Disappointed”
Reviewed 5 May 2003

I have no idea why there are so many favorable reviews of Hale Maluhia "Country Inn." My husband and I were so disappointed in the shabbiness of this place that it almost ruined our visit to the Big Island. I feel it is important for me to write this review because I chose Hale Maluhia based upon reviews like the others that appear here and I want to be able to warn readers so that they don't make the same mistake that we did. I don't know where others stayed, but we felt like we were staying in the room of some teenager who was off to college. We felt like we were staying at someone's house, but not in the quaint "bed and breakfast" kind of way. It had a rather creepy feeling to us rather than warm and inviting. It was particularly hard for us to come from wonderful lodging at Hale Ohia in Volcano to this lodging. (We highly recommend Hale Ohia!)Don't choose Hale Maluhia expecting to find something charming - or even very clean for that matter.

Our apologies to this guest. My wife and I took a much needed vacation at that time and let some close friends cover for us. It was a big mistake and we are willing to comp this guest with a free 3 day stay at Hale Maluhia Country Inn in the near future.

The Hale Maluhia is a great B&B just up the hill from downtown Kona. It's cooler, greener, and quieter than the village, but just a few minutes away, up in Kona coffee country.There is a great all-you-can-eat make your own omelette breakfast, plus lots of fresh tropical fruit.Pleasant lanai to eat breakfast on while watching birds at the feeder.
