  1. This is one of the best kept secrets in the Military. We have stayed there many times, it feels like home. The staff treats you like family. It is one of our all time favorites.

  2. We loved staying at the Hale Koa Hotel. From our room, we could see the ocean and the city. The scent of orchids and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach below were unforgettable. The entertainment we saw and heard gave us a window into the island people and their history. We look forward to another wonderful adventure at the Hale Koa.

  3. I have stayed at this “Gorgeous, beautiful, Hotel twice and if you haven’t you have missed out of the best of the best. Even compared to the big corporate Hotels!!! The people working there are the “Best” I have encountered in my 73 years of traveling around the world!!! They go out of there way to make everything perfect for everyone. I have never had anyone say NO to me for any requests. Make sure you book a Rental Car from inside the Hale Koa, half price compared to the airport, I found that out the hard way! I wish I could live the rest of what’s left of my life there!!! You will be so happy you stayed at the best hotel in the world!!!

  4. I had tried to get reservations to anywhere in Hawaii Military Lodging in September. It was easy to get a flight out of Travis during the 2nd week of September but there was nothing available beyond 1 day stay at Hale Koa until January 2019. The rest of the lodgings were unavailable from September until November. Navy Lodge at Navsta could not give reservations except 7 days in advance and only 2 days max stay.

    1. Hi Mr. Dahl – Staying in space-available lodging is always somewhat unpredictable, especially at such a popular tourist destination as Hawaii! We’d recommend you always make commercial reservations in advance that will allow you to cancel if military space-a lodging should be available when you arrive. Nonetheless, we hope your visit to Hawaii was a good one. Thank you for your comments!

  5. We LOVE the Hale Koa! We’ve stayed three times now, twice in the Ilima Tower and once in the Maile Tower which (lucky us!) was recently renovated. The lanai offers peekaboo ocean views. Ours (NOV 2018) also happened to overlook the fabulously green grounds and lovely gardens. One year we had a corner room which meant wraparound windows – city and mountains on one side + beach on the other = FABULOUS!
    The first year we stayed, we enjoyed the luau. The Mongolian BBQ is mouth-watering! We never miss it. The staff is warm and wonderful – so much Aloha! The beach/beach access is excellent and offers stellar views of Diamond Head. Sunsets are NOT to be missed, either. We’ve eaten at some of the restaurants but enjoyed grabbing quick snacks from Happy’s Fast and Fresh on site. You might catch a glimpse of a resident feral cat or two. Meow! The Exchange on site is fantastic and super-convenient for reasonably priced souvenirs or anything else you need. PRO TIP: Like items cost less at base Exchanges than they did at the Hale Koa Exchange.
    I enjoy the art and craft show they host in the lobby – a nice extra! Located across the street, parking is convenient (but not free). Many local tours pick up at a hotel around the corner, a short walk from the Hale Koa. We did that a couple of times – worked like a charm.
    The Fort DeRussy museum is FREE and is a must-see. It’s also walking distance to the Hale Koa–just a short, scenic stroll through the gardens/park.
    We simply would not stay anyplace else. You’re in good company with fellow members of the armed forces. The bigger pool complex is undergoing reno scheduled to be completed in mid-2019. I have NO DOUBT it will be worth the wait.
    We are counting down the days until we return. It feels like home to us! See you there.

  6. Wonderful facility right on the beach, with beautiful grounds, decent restaurants, nice rooms. Try for one with at least a partial ocean view. Great gift shop/ PX, with enough goodies to meet your needs and then some. Staff is pleasant everywhere.
    On one occasion, our plane arrived from overseas very early, and we were at the hotel by 7 or 8, totally exhausted, waiting for a room and did not get into one until around 11, after repeated respectful requests at the desk, in spite of assurances we would be notified when our room would be available, which did not happen. Other than that, the staff has always been wonderful. You can’t go wrong at the Hale Koa.

  7. We were in Hale Koa Hotel 1/18 to 1/23. Our first time. Just loved it. Everyone was so wonderful, the staff and the people staying there. And of course the weather just wonderful, no bugs no humidity.
    Also, the luau was awesome.
    Monday and Wednesday they have arts and crafts with many hand-made items.
    Can’t wait to visit again.
