Will be your best price:value relationship at the Hilton Waikoloa...

PROVIDED you select the breakfast pkg with your reservation, elsewise be prepped to spend $~70 for two per day. Food is plentiful and generally delicious, except the scrambled eggs. Get in the fast-moving line for an omelet made to your specs and you will be delighted.

The custom omelet orders at the omelet station were actually good as opposed to some places we've been to where they overcook them. The line was speeded up by you choosing your ingredients prior to the cooking and place them on a plate handed to the cook. I appreciated that as I have stood in line a long time before... More

Over $60 for 2 people for breakfast, it's ridiciouls. If you book the special that gives you vouchers for breakfast it cuts the cost of breakfast by more than half. The food is tasty and the selection is plenty and the wait is very reasonable.

We chose to eat the Big Island Breakfast one morning. For two people it cost us $69, which is way more than we usually spend for breakfast. There is a fabulous selection, but really, one can only eat so much food at a time. After this experience, we walked to the King's Grill for breakfast, on the golf course. It... More

Overwhelming amount of choices for a huge breakfast. We couldn't eat here everyday it was just too much food and expensive (didn't have breakfast included). I enjoyed being able to eat Chinese food in the morning it was a treat for me - and their 'donuts' were amazing. You can get a great omlet and all sorts of juices. The... More
