Confused

I am very confused with the negative comments. My wife and I have stayed at the hotel twice now and both times they were very enjoyable experiences. If we wanted the fancy bath products and robes found at the more expensive hotels and wanted to pay the room tax, we would have done so. We were extremely happy with the beach access, the room and the pools. We are returning again in 2008 for a 12 day stay. We would like to note that while the room should be nice, it is not where we spend time other than to sleep.

It's a room

Don't get me wrong. If all you are looking for is a room on Waikiki, then the Hale Koa is for you. I was disappointed by the room. We stayed in room 204, apparently one of the only rooms with a lovely view of the side of the roof to the lobby. There was exactly one outlet for use (that was not in the bathroom) and the tangle of cords plugged into the outlet behind the dresser was disturbing. The outlet in the bathroom kept tripping the GFI circuit. The room decor looked as if it had not been updated in many years (especially the bathroom) although it was clean. Our A/C did not do much; we had a fan brought to the room. Apparently, we were also on the only floor without an ice maker or laundry facility. The laundry facility we used on the 5th floor was about 120 degrees. Oh, did I forget to mention the enormous rat that was seen attempting to make its way through the revolving door in the lobby? Like I said, if you're looking for a clean, affordable room on the beach...go for it. Other than that, look elsewhere.

The grounds and the location are unbeatable. You won't find any other ocean front hotel with a private beach and open grounds, most others are crammed between the neighboring hotels and have about 10 feet of beach at high tide. We very much enjoyed our vacation; the rooms are average to above average...nothing spectacular. A larger refrigerator would be at the top of the list for things to add, they have a small "icebox" which doesn't keep things very cold and is fairly small. The amenities within the hotel make everything very convenient the only problem we had was with a extremely incompetent assistant manager of the restaurant (Bibas) named Tracey. Luckily the Assistant hotel manager (Diane) was very professional and very much helped us forget the horrible service we received one evening. All in all if your military and have the luxury of staying at the Hale Koa you won't find a better hotel for the price.

The Hale Koa was a great adventurous place to stay. The pool and clear glass elevator was awesome. I liked being on the beach too with the beach rentals. It was truly fun.

Fantastic Hotel!! The Hale Koa commands the best part of Waikiki, with matching accommodations, and activities. Accommodations, Shows, Restaurants and Staff are First Class. Be careful, once you experience the Hale Koa and after you compare you will be back for more.

What a great hotel. Lots of beautiful green space in a concrete jungle and the beachfront is first rate. Shows are all top notch and the Luau on the best!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hale Koa Hotel

Hale Koa exceeds expectations!

from A TripAdvisor Member
More than we expected in every way. The restaurants were great--especially Biba's-- but the Hale Koa Room was awesome for our special birthday night! The staff was helpful and the RATES were the best of all. The military and DoD personnel who use this facility have a rare "perk" for government folks. Wonderful trip for everyone in our party.

Wonderful place.

from A TripAdvisor Member
No words can describe this wonderful place. The service and friendliness at the Hale Koa was exceptional. Had a glorious time.
Thanks.

The true Aloha Spirit

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I have traveled to many parts of the world as I have been with the Military and US Gov for over 38 years. We always look forward to our trips to Hawaii and the Hale Koa. This is,by far, the best in the world. We love this place it is first class ALL THE WAY. The staff, the folks staying and the ones making it all happen have the spirit to make this a wonderful stay time after time. For those that haven't been you need to,I am sure you will return time after time as we do. I give this place 6 stars.

Loved the Hale Koa

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Hale Koa is easily the best hotel in Waikiki! The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the restuarants were awesome!! We would recommend this hotel to all who are able to stay there!

Best hotel on Waikiki

from A TripAdvisor Member
Easily the best resort on Waikiki. Most hotels have their lobby packed with expensive shops, and a small pool, and not much else. The Hale Koa has 66 acres of gardens, pools, outdoor bars, snack shacks, and many other amenities, with access right out to a quiet stretch of Waikiki Beach. There is always something to do...magic shows, Luaus, with casual and fine dining on site. If you are priveledged to know any military personnel who can sponsor your visit, start planning a stay NOW.

Phenomenal place to stay in Hawaii

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Hale Koa is gorgeous, impeccably clean, has a friendly helpful staff, a full gym, jacuzzi and pool. Oh, and did I fail to mention the food is amazingly good. Can't wait to return!

Paradise

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I spent the greatest vacation yet at the Hale Koa Hotel. I have recommended it to others and they are going there in Nov. '03. I was there in April '03 and spent two weeks of the most enjoyable time ever. There was always something to do or you could just relax around one of their 5 pools. We were in the middle of everything yet we still had our Privacy. I would return in a heart beat. I am planning on another trip to Hawaii in either the summer of '04 or '05. I would be interested in getting information about similar militaryhotels on both Maui and Kuwaii.

Loved the Hale Koa Hotel!!

I love Hawaii and Hale Koa Hotel. I am ready to go back to Hawaii, it is truly Paradise!!

Retired Personnel and Family Members

Having been a guess of my Active Military family member at the Hale Koa, it was a memorable stay with the Hotel Staff catering to guests like a Five-Star Hotel and the value was unbelievable. The food, entertainment, and amenities rate alongside world-class hotels with one major difference; that our Men & Women of our US Armed Forces who stand and guard "that wall" for us can have the opportunity to enjoy in some pleasures that in the public realm, only the few and privileged can enjoy. Aloha and Mahalo Hale Koa Staff! July 2003

Fabulous!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My first time in Hawaii and the Hale Koa was absolutely wonderful. The staff was first class. I found the whole experience just terrific and would love to stay at the Hale Koa again, if given the opportunity.

Top Local Tips for Honolulu

Danny Couch What is Danny Couch up to since leaving the Luau at the Hale Koa?

Cheap eats Ted's Bakery in Sunset Beach (great burgers and pies), Teddy's Bigger Burgers in Koko Marina Center (good burgers and shakes), Beard Papa's (cream puffs), shrimp trucks in Haleiwa (off Kamehameha Hwy just before/after the traffic circle)

don't bring formal clothes Casual wear is all you will need. Maybe one pair of pants and no shoes. Sneakers are all you need.
