This property is so wonderful. I traveled with an unvaccinated child so we took our meals in the room. Fabulous. Everything was so so good. Try POG. You’ll be sad when your grocery does not carry the drink when you get back home. Brent at the front desk hooked up this Momma. We had a wonderful room. In the mornings we could hear the dolphins in the lagoon. The view was beyond belief. I’m still looking at pictures and thanking myself for this beautiful resort. Everyone did such a wonderful job and we felt right at home. Oahu if I see you again it will be through the eyes of Kahala

I stayed at Ocean View room which was just beyond words. Adding to that, Amazing break fast at Plumeria beach house and fantastic dinner at Arancino. The room furniture and fabrics are old and ruined, but it was very memorable stay!!

The beach and ocean view was amazing. The service was really good except our check out. When we told her that we booked through Expedia which included a $50 food credit for each room, she questioned us. We showed her the Expedia page AND the text message with a resort staff and she STILL questioned us. She had us scrambling to login to Expedia when she finally says “I found it”. Like why not look before making your guest scramble even after showing you two items. The rooms were nice although a bit old. The bathroom tile needs replacement. The dolphins and seaside grill was a plus.
