We stayed at the Hale Koa Feb 4 to the 13th. Our room was on the very end facing the ocean we could not have asked for a better room, the whole end side of the room was all windows plus we had the balcony facing the ocean on the other side. The restaurants had good food, the place we... More

The resort has everything you need to enjoy both the Waikiki area and connect up with tours or rental car to take in the rest of the island. Wifi is only available in the lobby which may hamper some who like to stay connected. The luau was fabulous for both the food and entertainment and the price was excellent too.... More

We recently returned from our 20th anniversary and stayed at the Hale Koa with a large group. The rooms were all great, the staff extremely helpful and the location perfect. The convenience of the onsite BX is always appreciated as well. We used the barefoot bar almost every night and had a great time there. The only minor complaint I... More

We just returned from another stay at the Hale Koa. Our room was in the Maile tower, which I understand will be renovated soon. The rooms are spacious and have plenty of storage for clothing, including plenty of hangers. There is a small fridge (not the tiniest of mini's) as well as a coffee pot in the room. The lanai...

Located next to the Hilton Hawaiian Village, this place is wonderful! Great facilities, live entertainment, and a BX right on the property! If you are military, you would be crazy to stay anywhere else. The staff was friendly, the rooms are clean, and our room (Ocean View) had a great view of the ocean and our own private suite for...

I assure you, If you not military you may not get the experience. All the better to buddy up to your service members. We did not stay in the rooms but we used the facilities which is accessible to military folks..

Very busy hotel and I see why...I really enjoyed my stay at the Hale Koa. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. Such a beautiful view from the moment you drive pass security. Great location. Walking distance to almost everything and a very safe area. Lots of picture taking at this hotel. A two minute beautiful nature walk behind the... More

I came here with my family a few years ago. I have been craving to come back ever since. My favorite part of the hotel is the breakfast buffet in the mornings. Fresh fruit and they would make your omelts right in front of you. The rooms were spacious and had great views. The giant tree growing in the middle... More

This hotel is operated by the Department of Defense for military familes. It is fantastic. Never a disappointment. We stayed in the old tower, it is starting to show its age. My sister and her husband stayed in the new tower and it was wonderful. I wish they had Wi-Fi in the rooms, but that is a minor complaint. There... More
