We just returned from our second stay at the Hale Koa. Our first was right after 9/11, when the grounds were guarded by armed soliders. This is has got to be the best bet on all of Waikiki. It is quiet and peaceful, but if it want a little bit of the excitement and nightlife of Waikiki, it is just a short walk away. You could spend your whole vacation and never leave the property.
We did all our shopping at the PX. We ate most of our meals at KoKo's and Biba's but their odd hours didn't always work with our schedule. We took a walk to Moose Magillicuddy's and had a great cheap breakfast. They gave their 2 for 1 deal eventhough we didn't have the coupon and then sent us home with a stack of them for the rest of our trip. We didn't discover the beach elevator in Ilima tower until our last day and that would have made a nice short cut to the pool and beach.
