The Hale Koa is a great value. I feel like the staff at the front desk was a bit rude and we felt very rushed. Our reservation was messed up upon our arrival.The confusion continued through check out. When we left 5 days later, we had two separate bills and instead of apologizing we were told we shouldn't have checked in separately. Our room was a partial oceanfront view that looked at the parking garage and the construction across the way. What I could see of the ocean was beautiful. Prices at this hotel was MUCH better then some of the surrounding hotels we have stayed at. This location is very touristy and very busy but if you like to shop it is a short walking distance from all the stores. If you are trying to see some of the island then you need to rent a car or a scooter. The luau at the Hale Koa is well worth it, great night of fun. Also the pools close early which was a little disappointing. I would recommend staying here for the price but if your looking for a romantic getaway this isn't the place for you.
