The food is excellent. While parts of the facility are outdated, it is well maintained and the attentive staff makes up for the slightly dated appearance. The beach is awesome.
The pool should be larger. The poolside menu could use some more pizazz and creativity.
A Quality Place for Families
Private beach means it is never overcrowded. Friendly, professional staff. Dolphin Lagoon a must experience for kids. Big, comfortable room with comfortable bed, nice bath amenities. All toilets have a bidet, which is a nice surprise. Beautiful grounds and atmosphere.
Above average humidity for this time of year. We were told it was due to the El Nino from winter. Small pool (and number of chaise lounges) that can get crowded quickly. Food from the Seaside Grill and Plumeria is overpriced and okay, at best. Drinks overpriced, but tastes great.
Perfect location for a high end hotel
Kahala is located close enough to the city action yet far enough away where it's remote. Though the pool area was relatively small, it was never crowed. The dolphin lagoon and sea turtle exhibit was quite amazing. Beach was also gorgeous and calm. No complaints about the Kahala. Would definitely visit again.
Wish there was good snorkeling right around there but that's asking for too much!!
The staff and growns are amazing
The dolidpin and turtle tanks, way to small for them to live
Perfect facility for people who do not want to stay in Waikiki
No doubt, the best place to stay around the Diamond Head; dolphins living just next to the swimming pool being one of the unique "staffs" of the stay.
Great hotel when traveling with kids. I could eat breakfast and keep an eye on them as they were making sand castles. No beach on Waikiki would be this safe for kids as they're too crowded.
The mattress was just awful!
The dolphin experience! Shopping!
Need more buses to shops
It was an amazing holiday, the staff were so friendly & welcoming. The room well laid out & everything extemely comfortable. The restaurants we tried were exceptional.
