The Hale Koa is the military's luxery hotel on Oahu. It is really worth the money to stay here. My husband and I lived here for two weeks when we first came to the island and really took advantage of all the hotel has to offer. The restuarants are good, I really recommend the breakfast buffet. Sometimes we drive downtown just to enjoy the atmosphere at breakfast. The pool is okay, best for little kids. They do also have a pool for adult hotel guests as well, so that is nice. The beach at Hale Koa is not the nicest, however you can rent these big floats and take them out on the ocean and just relax. That is really nice to do. Hale Koa has their own luau. I am not a big fan of luau's but when family comes in town I like to take them. This luau is much more reasonably priced than some of the others. The jewelry store at the Hale Koa sometimes has nice specials and since they are located in the hotel, they have lots for tourists. The best feature of the Hale Koa I think is just that they are for military only, therefore everything is good priced. You can park there for cheap, there is an Exchange on site and a barber, etc. You must stay here during a PCS. The rooms are just okay, but the views are incredible.
