We really enjoyed the dolphins and the care that the trainers took with the people that swam with the dolphins, especially the children!
The buffet breakfasts were very good and had a great variety!
The hotel staff were very helpful and
We were looking for a relaxing quiet beach with excellent dining, and found both at the Kahala. Especially enjoyed lunch on the beach, and the calm water. We never had trouble finding a comfortable private lounger and the beautiful setting is
undistracted by crowds or noise- just lovely! The beds are especially comfortable, best we have experienced in many travels. Many nice touches- like popsicles and smoothies on the beach, fruit drink in the lobby, and free shuttles to malls and Waikiki.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
$15 for an amazing continental buffet available every morning.
We stayed at this resort for our honeymoon, and absolutely enjoyed our time here.
Staff were friendly and helpful, private beach was great, room was very comfortable and nicely furnished.
If I had to nitpick, some small gripes:
- Location is a
bit out of the way. If you want to walk out your door to shops and entertainment, then this is not the place for you.
- And to make the location worse, the on-site parking fees are exorbitant!
- Meals at the on-site restaurants are expensive! But to be expected I suppose.
- Resort is well maintained and still grand, but is starting to show its age, and probably needs a major refurbishment in the next few years.
Very nice location, paradise at it's best. After reviewing and reading a lot of other hotels, this one was my choice and I'm happy it was. Super beach, where you can walk and walk, clean, friendly, good food, it was all great. Would do it again in
a heart beat and I'm usually, rather hard to please. Go and enjoy.
This was the first time my wife and I stayed at the Kahala Resort. We only stayed for one night but the stay was unforgettable. My wife had the chance to swim with the dolphins. I never seen a smile so big before. She really enjoyed the time with
the dolphins. The pool was smaller than what we are used to but it did the job. And it was near the bar with a big screen tv where I spent my time watching football in the water. It was great!!!. The food at the Veranda was top notch. My steak was well cook and the presentation was perfect. Thank you Kahala. We will definitely book again.
This is one of the best hotels in the area. It is well known for its standaed and quality. My family and I loved the hotel. Most beautiful dolphins l8ve in the lagoon. Staff are very friendly and helpful
This was my first trip to Hawaii with my finance & we had a wonderful stay at the kahala. Our room was the ocean front suite. The suite was beautiful, and the bed was beyond comfortable. We had two bathrooms. Master bath had a bidet with heated
toilet seat (a plus). Gorgeous view of the beach and diamond head. Maids came twice a day. Great restaurants in the resort. Out door pool with tiki bar. You can interact with dolphins. Scenery is beautiful, with breathtaking taking sunsets. Not a golfer but a full PGA tour golf course is across the from the hotel. Kahala is very peaceful and less busy compared to other hotels in the city. I would love to come back again.
