We stayed at the kahala for two weeks. Everything was great. Although a bit dated, the upkeep in our area of the hotel was good. Very comfortable bed. Air conditioning doesn't ever completely cool down to where you set it but works enough to keep you comfortable. The bathtub is a bit small for the type of hotel, we expected deep soaker tubs but had narrow, shallow tub, which was okay.The food at the buffet breakfast was great, lots of variety to suit everyone. The place could use a second pool and hot tub as the ones they have can get crowded. Beach area is fantastic, great place for the family to swim, well protected. The staff are exceptional. If one thing would bring us back it would have to be the staff and their attentive service which is unmatched at anywhere we went in Oahu . They are genuine in their care of customers and we very much appreciated their hard work. The restaurants all have very good quality food, some of the best we sampled on Oahu , but be prepared for the high level of quality and service cost, expensive. Definitely not for the budget conscientious . There is nothing one could say negative about the kahala, you just have to accept the cost of quality if you stay.
