Dolphin Bay Hotel

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Yen Chin on September 18, 2005

I often think that John Alexander, the proprietor of the Dolphin Bay Hotel operates in order to share his knowledge of wonders of the Big Island. He certainly doesn't run it with a keen eye to enhancing his economic bottom line, because his generousity overflows everywhere. For example, in the morning there is always lots of free freshly brewed coffee and sweet rolls for guests to enjoy. You can also have all the tropical fruits you want for no charge. Usually this means bananas (many varieties) and papayas, but tangerines, pineapples and avocados also show up.

If you want to know the best places to visit, just ask John. If you need flashlights to get back after dark from a hike out to see the lava flow, John lends them to guests. If you need a cooler to take to the beach, the hotel has them.

All the rooms have kitchens and fans. None of the rooms have telephones, but the wireless Internet connection is free.
