Beautiful resort
Beautiful resort but it needs to be updated

Definitely Good Option for Young Kids
Definitely recommend for couples with young Children. The pool, beach and general area feels safe for kids. The ocean is a little calmer than other areas, so little ones can play in the water. Lots of other young kids around. They have on-site swimming with Dolphins, they have sea turtles etc. Service good, food good. It is a resort and there is not a lot going on once you depart the resort.

Fantastic place to spend honeymoon days. The service and atmosphere was wonderful and it's just far enough from the busy streets of Waikiki. I suggest a rental car if you plan on going anywhere more than the resort and to Waikiki

Great place!

Paradise at the kahala
I waited three weeks to write this review so I could sufficiently remove myself from the emotions of an amazing vacation by returning to my home State of New Jersey, and for me to further reflect upon my holiday at the Kahala. Lobby- Upon our arrival, we were very impressed on how nice the lobby was. It was clean, and it became quickly apparent that this truly was a 5 star hotel. Front Desk Staff- After an 11 hour flight from New Jersey, it was great to have courteous and friendly staff to greet us upon our arrival. Breakfast- The buffet breakfast in the morning had plenty of options and it was delicious. Upon our arrival, we were advised that the busiest times in the breakfast room are between 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., so it would be ideal to arrive for breakfast prior to those hours. But being that our body-clocks were still on New Jersey time, arriving early for breakfast was not a problem. Beach- The beach at the Kahala was amazing and very calm, and because it is secluded it lacked the crowds. We were concerned of high waves because we went with two young children, but there were practically no waves at the Kahala. I was informed that due to the reef in the ocean where the Kahala is located, it prevents the waves from getting to be too high, thus the beach is perfectly safe for young children. Cabanas- Also while at the beach, we had reserved a cabana every day for a fee of $65 per day. It was well worth it.
