Bali Hai resort in Kauai Hawaii

On our family vacation to Hawaii we stayed at the Bali Hai resort in Princeville on the island of Kauai. The north side of the island.  It was a great place. If you follow that link you can get more info on it. I am posting pictures that I took of the place and  the room we stayed in.  Although it was very nice, it certainly does not look like the pictures on their website.


The grounds were well kept and the pool was in the middle of the property so it was easily walked to.  It really was not within walking distance of anything else.  You will have to have a rental car to stay here.

This is a picture of the living room.  The couch did not make into a bed.  There was a good size kitchen with everything you might need and a small dining area.

The 2nd bedroom had two twin beds and a full bathroom.  The mater bedroom was big and had a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub.

The pool was zero entry and has a sand bottom.  The sand is rough.

The pool was a good size, but the hot tub was small and not that hot.

If we went back we would gladly stay here again, if we could not find something somewhere else on the island.  I think Princeville is too far from Poipu Beach and the west side of the island.  I would rather stay in Poipu or the west side, because those areas are much warmer.

Hale Koa military resort on Waikiki Beach - Honolulu, Hawaii

A couple of years ago when we took a military hop to Hawaii with our kids for Christmas we stayed at the Hale Koa.  Hale Koa is a military resort on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii.  I could not believe this is a military resort.  We got the last room available the day we showed up for $160 a night.  We had a standard room with two double beds.  The best part of the room was the wrap around balcony we had for being in a corner room.  If I had booked this room in advance it would have only been $90.  For the most part when you book in advance the rates are based on your pay grade. 

Here are a few pictures of the resort.  This first one is the kiddie pool.
