Best place to stay in Hawaii

We stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon in March 2015. We are so glad we did! We got in just as it was getting dark and briefly saw the waterfall from the patio on our way up to our room. The bed was very comfortable and when we woke up the next morning we took the short trail down to the bottom of the gorgeous waterfall. It was amazing! Really felt like we were in Hawaii! The staff prepared a delicious breakfast and after breakfast we walked the other way down the trail to the bamboo gardens where we saw some other smaller waterfalls. It was an easy walk and so romantic! I would highly recommend staying at least one night here if you are going to Hawaii. It is closer to The Hilo airport but we flew in to the other airport and it was about an hour drive. The staff helped us set up a helicopter tour and we got discounted tickets for staying there. Really loved our stay here!
