As I said in my hotel review, our two meals were average in taste, nothing special and nothing bad. The server brought a carton of milk for the cereal rather than a pitcher, which seemed a little tacky.

What a peaceful way to start or end the day! Buffet breakfast in the morning with menu service also available. Upscale, yet casual, dining in the evening. Fireside searing is also available with live music. At sunset on Friday and Saturday nights there is a mini "luau-style" show. The food is a little on the expensive side, but it is... More

Breakfast and Lunch here is fantastic. Sunday Champagne Brunch is extremely over priced but the quality of the food (and quantity) is fantastic.

We have eaten breakfast and dinner here. Breakfast came with our room...totally worth it! Great way to start the day with a full selection of breakfast or the buffet. Lots of fresh fruit, great coffee, great made to order omelette. Dinner was just as good...by the firepit with a view of the ocean; great service; friendly staff.

They have a great selection of food on the menu. I chose the Caesar Salad with Salmon. The croutons were hand made and very good.

We were guests of the hotel, visiting from Maui. We visited Shades for happy hour, and ended up staying for several hours! We sat around the outdoor fire pit, and had the most delightful time. The $5/glass Cabernet wine on happy hour was a big bodied, juicy, absolutely delicious glass of wine. We shared a pasta dish and a cheeseburger;... More
