  • We were told to go to Ahalanui Park by our hotel in Hilo. Round trip 3hrs due to several stops in other parks along the way. Ahalanui bay is nice, warm, relaxing spot. Water is heated by volcanic heat...  read more »
  • Some of these reviews talk about a black beach. There wasn't one, just rocky surf. There was, however an amazing large pool (almost Olympic size, 2-5 foot deep). It was brackish (part spring fed and p...  read more »
  • Felt great but warnings about bacteria are true. No open cuts and don't put you head under water. We were fine but I did hear of a few people being treated at the hospital 
  • I got really sick after going here, ended up in the hospital. I loved the area, and hate it that I'm the only downer here. There's signs everywhere to swim at your own risk, so I did, and was fine the rest of the day after swimming, but woke up feeling really bad the next morning. By 24 hours later, I was stuck in bed, going no where. Didn't throw up, just felt completely powerless, and unable to walk. For days this got worse and worse, ruined the rest of our trip. After 5 days, I checked into the hospital ..and after 6 or 7 hours in bed, and an IV of some anti biotic and 2 bags of water, some how it ends up being some kind of funky that was doing it, the anti biotics wiped it out. I never get sick, but this was a life changer. The water in the gets loaded with weird bacteria, and just swishes around with all kinds of grossness. So, I'm just hoping you read this before you let your kids or you go in there.. It looks safe, it's not. No, its not.
  • Go in at own risk. Geothermal pool sounds interesting however the number of dirty diapers on the side of the "pool" and those still attached to infants in the water stopped me dead in my tracks. Warning signs advise you not to go in with open sores or wounds. Water is "flushed" through an opening cut at the ocean end of the pool however when I was there the flow was not even remotely close enough to keep a clean level in and out of the pool. I'm no germaphobe having spent a vast majority of my life living in remote locations via the military but there is no award I would have accepted for bravery to get in that pool. Stick you finger in to get a feel for it then promptly wash it. Parking is minimal at best with several cars there just selling trinkets taking up spots.
  • Great place to experience the warm water! Best to go at high tide for freshest water.
  • Really well maintained park. This is a must do in Hawaii. I can't really say anything bad, it's just beautiful!
  • A great family spot with warm/hot water and fresh salt water filtering through.
