Our server was lovely but we didn't see much of her. The breakfast buffet reminded me of airline food (remember airline food? Man I'm old). Rubbery eggs, overly salty bacon, lots of items that looked like they'd been there for days. It's a lovely resort, but wow the food needs lots and lots of improvement. The whole room looked dirty,...

This brunch is wide spread and has everything you'd expect from a basic brunch buffet at a nice hotel restaurant, including an omelet bar and some cuisine of the island culture. Brunch is all you can eat buffet layout with juice options, many breads and treats, fresh fruit and a bit of island culture options. Brunch is $30.00 per person.... More

It was fine, reasonable choices. Line up for fresh cooked eggs/omelettes was something a couple of days.

This is SO NOT WORTH IT! The food is sub-par at best, and the quality of the food is low. Hot foods are not really hot / cold foods are not as cold as they should be...frustrating! Positives: servers are all very sweet and accommodating (TIP THEM, PEOPLE!), biscuits with warm strawberry syrup, miso soup, Japanese accoutrements, fried rice (some... More

Poor quality food with expensive prices. The buffet is underwhelming…not worth the calories or the price tag. Pancakes were dry and coffee weak. The only good thing there was the fresh fruit. Everything else was as if it had been sitting out for a day. Avoid if possible.

The buffet offered way too much food for an average breakfast and ordering off the menu was almost expensive (especially with $6 cups of coffee).

The staff here was great- our waitress was Rose, and she was so kind. The food was excellent- omelets were great!

We liked the friendly servers. The food wasn't bad, but we did not try the $30 buffet. American Breakfast of Eggs, meat, potatoes and toast was $20 but coffee was $6 as was juice. The big problem was the wait for a table. There were long lines just to leave your name.

The buffet is quite expensive and in my opinion, only so-so. It is elaborate enough but the quality is fast food like.

We ate here on our last day as we didn't have a lot of time we thought this would be a good choice. It was delicious and lots to choose from. The view was fantastic.
