Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed in room 1217 overlooking the Dolphin Pool with their daily hourly shows. Easy access to the beach and free use of sun loungers. The Plumeria Restaurant with its buffet was amazing, All the staff at the Front desk were super helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.10 out 10

Great location, wonderful amenities and dolphins too! Our family of four enjoyed the beach, pool and restaurants. The employees were delightful and helpful. Perfect distance to the city without being in the city and an easy drive to Pearl Harbor. Highly recommend

Our daughter's wedding reception was held here last year. She booked 2 nights for us and we loved everything. Staff was so nice. Dining was great - great tasting dishes and super friendly staff. We love the ocean and the beach was right there. Being away from Waikiki created a very peaceful setting. What made the stay so great was our dogs were allowed as guests and were presented lei. We decided to do it again this year and will continue to make this an annual family event.

I went the hotel on my honeymoon. It's a little far from the city, but it was a quiet and relaxing environment. Staff are friendly and helpful.  I also enjoyed interacting with the dolphins. We had a wonderful experience here.

Of the numerous business meeting trips I've been on this year, the Kahala was easily the best..... Best service, best staff, best food, best views, best everything except maybe the gift shop. The staff was incredible and I think that is what sticks out the most.

The Kahala Resort staff will show you the true meaning of “Aloha.” The property and people are beautiful. My husband took our first empty nest trip and certainly chose the right place. We left feeling relaxed, refreshed and as if we had been royalty for a week. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. We had so many amazing encounters, the spa was so good we went back a second time, all of the restaurants are exquisite and the Veranda offers the best tea time service I’ve ever experienced. You just have to experience it to believe it! 10/10 on absolutely everything and then… you look out to an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Simply paradise perfection.

Our family has been coming to the Kahala for nearly 20 years. Our room was, sad to say, dilapidated. The carpets were stained. The TV was located in position that was ideally located for members of the Waialae Country Club to peer in from across the street, but not from the room itself. The AC came through a single vent, which meant that only the entrance to the room actually got cold. At night, only a fan overhead could be used to keep the air circulating l, but it wasn’t great and the beds. The room’s cabinets were in shoddy shape, as was the rest of the furniture. If we had to guess, that room hasn’t been overhauled in years and it showed.

Great 3 nights at Kahala. Superb room with balcony overlooking the golf course and nearby hills. Staff were excellent, beach was perfect warm sea and safe to swim in. Nice location just on the other side of diamond head from Waikiki. Breakfast on the expensive side though.

You know how people think about doing something special and it turns out to be not quite as good as they thought it would be? This was the opposite of that. It was everything we wanted and more. The staff were kind and helpful. They offered suggestions that were genuine and sincere. The room was clean and beautiful, absolutely charming. Every possible thing I could think of was already taken care of. It was a special experience. The food was beautiful and every day I woke up to a stunning view in a quiet, comfortable area. I left happy and want to go back as soon as possible.

We had the most magical and relaxing time at the fabulous Kahala Hotel. Outside the busy Honolulu and Waikiki zone, the Kahala is beautifully positioned with ocean and mountain views. Their dolphin program is fantastic, and having a room that overlooks the dolphin pools was a highlight of our trip! The food was excellent at all venues and made our vegetarian traveling companion happy! We can't wait to go back!
