I liked the peace & quiet & courteous helpful staff. I appreciated the easy check-in and out. There was plenty of space in the room & common area. I will probably stay here again.
The host and location were second to none, The masseurs were brilliant I was lucky as I was the only person staying and it was private and easy, the staff were extremely accommodating especially Charice
The only thing is the room can become a little warm, as there is no air conditioner, but there are two fans in te room I stayed which helped to keep the air flowing. :)

Bed was super comfortable nice private bathroom Great Staff Free use of Sauna Clean shared kitchen
Shelf by the desk was somewhat dirty with a few cobwebs Breakfast could be better recommend having the voucher for the Magic Pan Restraunt
Everything is bad
The owner is very nice and professional. The living room/kitchen and bathroom spaces are all clean and open. There is adequate light and many fans to stay cool. They have a huge refrigerator and up-to-date utilities. The rooms are spacious and quiet. You may even do your laundry at your own leisure. To top it all off they have 15% off massages and beautification in the spa, and they provide a free breakfast at Bear's Cafe (I got the fruit and yogurt bowl). All in all one of the nicest places I've ever stayed in a peaceful corner of Hilo Town.
There is nothing wrong with this Bed and Breakfast. The owner's employee even have me a ride into town the day after when I needed one. These people are very nice so I have nothing snooty nor judgmental to remark upon regarding this Spa Vive Retreat Bed and Breakfast.
Disconnected smoke alarms, one bedroom had no window, and with no air conditioning, this was an issue, cleanliness was marginal.
Very nice arrangement. Coffee maker in full kitchen, refrigerator, stove, microwave. Everything well maintained and in great condition. Wi-Fi worked well. Large bathroom.
Bed a bit too soft for my comfort, but probably mostly a personal preference. Location is a bit out of the way and parking can be a problem.
The people were wonderful. The house and facilities were wonderful.
The bed was way too soft.
The common space, kitchenette and spacious room. Interaction with the owner and spa staff. Delightful and made stay memorable.
For me the bed was too high. I had a hard time getting in and out, though comfortable once I got in. Hubby with his longer legs had no problem.
Very helpful hosts, great value
Room was dark, since it was in the basement, but for the price it was fine.
Location is good and within walking distance to downtown Hilo. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Owner welcomed and personally escorted us to our room. She was also super friendly explained everything we needed to know. Loved the option to pay upon check in (which is basically unheard of these days)!!! Guests get breakfast vouchers at a local town eatery which is a thoughtful touch. Spa services are also discounted for B&B guests so my fiance and I took advantage of an outstanding couples massage as well. Memory foam bed was very comfortable.
No AC!!! Although Big Island doesnt get extremely hot it is most definately humid. Our room did not have a window to catch an outside breeze and the ceiling fans and humidifier simply did not cut it. So although the bed was soft and comfortable the humid stuffy room didnt lend to peaceful rest. Also although we had a private bathroom it was across the hall from our room which for us (a couple) wasnt ideal. Not all rooms are like this so we assumed just our luck, however it wouldve been nice to know upfront.
No air conditioner. Walking across the hall to bathroom.
Difficulty to find the property.No light outside.Only after calling I got the building and method to enter. There was no breakfast on the property as promised ,and only after calling I got the information where to go and how to get the breakfast . The second day of our stay we got one breakfast instead of two.
Private bedroom and private bath. Two units.
Must share living room and kitchen with whomever rents the other unit.
great location right in Hilo!!
The lock system was difficult. My mom could not even operate either the cottage lock or our private room lock. That was pretty inconvenient.
Bedroom was very dusty! Bathroom and toilet were very dirty. no breakfast available! Won't book it a second time.
silence and space
I liked the proximity to downtown , and the discounted massage for being a guest .
The tree frogs take getting used to :)
very nice and clean
No window in room 2 twin beds would be nice
Well lit walkway, nice common area with full kitchen (appears to also be used by staff though), bed was comfortable, friendly staff and available before our visit to answer questions.
The basement room #1 had no window, had 2 fans. But no air with a dehumidifier , the fire alarm was a wire hanging down, no replacement roll of toilet paper, breakfast was at a shop several blocks away ( not a fruit plate/ buns in the room), security dubious ( entrance not locked only a combo on the rooms door knob).
We had a really nice room! The livingroom has a kitchen and a corner with really comfortable sofas.
When we arrived (it was already night) we first thougt we're at the wrong place, because nothing was signed.. When we found the entrance we went into the room but here wasn't signed either which our room is. We had to call the owner for clearness. But then we enjoyed our stay really much!
Quiet. Massage very good.
It is in a basement and our bedroom did not have a window (or an alternative means of escape in case of a fire or other emergency). There is no way of knowing this in advance from the Booking.com posting. It is very nearly impossible to sleep in such a claustrophobic situation. I suspect in most jurisdictions such an arrangement is illegal. There was no working smoke detector in the bedroom - the main body of it was disconnected and sitting in a bathroom cabinet.
