We visited The Kahala Resort in January 2014. We had enjoyed the stay very much. The service was absolutely perfect. Whenever you need help, there was someone available. The food at the restaurants was excellent. The hotel had its 50th birthday – but it doesn`t lost any of its charm! Looking forward to our next stay at the Kahala!

Although I haven't stayed at the hotel, the restaurants are great. The location just off the beach with lovely shade, good service. The beach is open to the public, but uncrowded, so it is a great place to relax and enjoy.
