Over priced

It was a breakfast buffet. They charged over $30 per person. Food was good but like I said its a breakfast buffet, how much do you really eat for breakfast, especially when it's hot outside and your about to go swim or do an activity? No bad just very overpriced.

We stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Village for a week in February and we enjoyed breakfast here each morning. We found that it filled us up for the rest of the day and we would just have a cake in the afternoon and then evening dinner. There is plenty of choice with eggs/omelettes cooked to order. I ordered Eggs Benedict... More

We ate breakfast here for 7 days in a row which was quite gluttonous! Our room package came with free breakfast and it was an incredible start to the day with a vey wide selection including an omelette station. Lots of local choices in addition to traditional breakfast items.

I love good food, but this is just the average breakfast for a hefty price. we tried it a couple of times, nothing special. They have a great selection for many different cultures so all is included. Just not my favorite.

Try the "Japaneese" breakfast area. They have unusual breakfast rice and sausage that I would never think of for breakfast. Delicious. Fast and friendly service. Great Kona coffee.

Expected a bit more for the 5-star hotel brekki. Many selections (especially bakery) but nothing very special. The view to the lagoon was good but too bad they don't open window and it felt a bit stuffy inside.

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
