Newest first
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The food is excellent. While parts of the facility are outdated, it is well maintained and the attentive staff makes up for the slightly dated appearance. The beach is awesome.

Cons:The pool should be larger. The poolside menu could use some more pizazz and creativity.

8.8 Great
Pros:Private beach means it is never overcrowded. Friendly, professional staff. Dolphin Lagoon a must experience for kids. Big, comfortable room with comfortable bed, nice bath amenities. All toilets have a bidet, which is a nice surprise. Beautiful grounds and atmosphere.

Cons:Above average humidity for this time of year. We were told it was due to the El Nino from winter. Small pool (and number of chaise lounges) that can get crowded quickly. Food from the Seaside Grill and Plumeria is overpriced and okay, at best. Drinks overpriced, but tastes great.

9.7 Excellent
Pros:Kahala is located close enough to the city action yet far enough away where it's remote. Though the pool area was relatively small, it was never crowed. The dolphin lagoon and sea turtle exhibit was quite amazing. Beach was also gorgeous and calm. No complaints about the Kahala. Would definitely visit again.

Cons:Wish there was good snorkeling right around there but that's asking for too much!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros:The staff and growns are amazing

Cons:The dolidpin and turtle tanks, way to small for them to live
