Hotels in HawaiiI would stay away...Yes, Didier (the Owner/Manager) is nice guy, AT FIRST, but don't dare track a pebble of black sand into his house. It's a beach front resort for heaven's sake. He will give you a sarcastic reprimand: "Don't you guys know how to shake towels off". I am talking about pebbles of sand not bringing the beach home. It is a nice place. a few room and he lives upstairs with no separate door to his entrance, so don't dare turn the lights on at night when coming home from the dreadful night out. Nothing to do in that town at all. So if you want to just hang out at the B&B at night and drink some beers and get busy in the hot tub, there is no outdoor lighting. Pitch black. You make slip and break a leg getting outside from your room. Plus the pool has a tear in the lining.... Oh, I am getting frustrated just writing this. But I give it two stars as it is near the wonderful black sand beach.
Beaches in HawaiiThe Best Part of a Boring IslandAs boring as Hilo (and the Big Island in general) is, this black sand beach is phenomenal. What a pleasant surprise. The directions to get to the beach, as described above, are correct and accurate. I used them to get there. There is, however, a steep climb down to the beach. Once you there, though.... truly amazing. Clean, black sand, ruff surf and peaceful. Yes, there is nudity and I guess you can do naught things there, but enjoy the black sand and the view. Most people don't get a chance to experience a place like Kahena Beach. Enjoy it!
Hotels in Key WestWell worth the price!Yes, it is a pricey place and one can run up quite a bar tab (or byob)... But awesome non pretentious staff and a no attitude resort. Also, guest get to drink free for happy hour... You should tip the tenders though. The only negative is that day passers take up too many pool chairs, but if they are cock blocking chairs for more than half hour with a towel and not being around - remove towels and cop a squat as I did. Fun adventure at Island House.
