Very comfortable and quiet. Loved the location far from the hectic Ali’s drive and close to Kahalu’u beach.

Big Island Retreat is a lovely smaller property right across from the beach and is walking distance to several restaurants. We stayed in the Pineapple Room, and it was such a nice place to go back to after exploring the island. We bumped into Karen, the property manager, who was friendly and offered us sight-seeing tips. We appreciated the beach towels and communal beach umbrellas that were provided. There were also Netflix accounts logged into the TV, which was a nice surprise. Every morning around 6 AM we woke up to a symphony of birds chirping and other nature sounds. My husband and I are early risers and thought it was a fun experience, so we didn’t mind. Others may want to consider ear plugs.

Lovely room with a comfortable bed and a view of the sunset over the ocean. Balcony was great for viewing the sunset. No AC, but not needed either. Fan and open windows was very pleasant. Loved hearing the waves as I fell asleep. Very close to great snorkeling (just across the street). Also, they have boogie boards, umbrellas and beach chairs to use for the day (1st come basis) which is a super bonus. We highly recommend the Oceanview room.
