My husband and I stayed at the Hale Koa on our honeymoon in late June/early July of 2003. It was the best honeymoon ever.
We were booked to stay at another hotel in the area which was very rude and very unhelpful...
We found the Hale Koa by accident and the staff was SO helpful. We honestly didn't think with it being fourth of July and all that there would be any rooms available... Well, Julie at the front desk helped us have the best honeymoon ever. We had the best view, we stayed in the new building, had our own private balcony in a corner room, overlooking the ocean. We were right over the gazebo and stage where they had the luau. We could leave our door open and hear the music. We watched several weddings from our room, it was so romantic.
The Hale Koa was more than awesome. The PX had everything and the prices were great. The staff was the best. Just sitting downstairs in the lobby reading the paper and drinking coffee or people watching was exciting. The resturants were top notch and everything was very clean.
We also thought the security was great. We knew that this was the best place on the island to stay.
For anyone to complain about not having a fridge or microwave is just ridiculous... it is called vacation for a reason!! You don't need those to have a good time...
We met great people at the pool, at resturants and at the luau.. Everyone was so nice...
We had such a good expirience that we were concidering moving to Hawaii, but because he is in the military it would have been hard for us!!!!
Well, I hope you get the picture and concider staying at the Hale Koa, I promise you will have the best time, we did. (And no we don't have a honeymoon baby!)
