We ate there at least 8 times during our stay. Our package provided us with vouchers for the buffet each day of our stay, but we missed two days. The staff is warm and welcoming, very very attentive and friendly. Our favorite here was "Sheryl" she greeted us cheerfully and upbeat everyday she waited on us, which was more than... More

We had breakfast included with our package. There was a good range of food, including fresh fruit. We did see the bill for the four of us for breakfast which was US$90 !! I would not have dined here if it wasn't included in our package. However unless you have a car the only other break option is the 2... More

Eggs were gross. Bacon was soggy. Potatoes were good! But for $30 plus tip, it cost us $70 for crappy food. Very upset. Service was good, though. Just overpriced and food was ehhhh.

A big disappointment. The food is commissary quality with no evidence of the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetable available locally (the only exception being the papaya slices.) In particular the tomatoes, available for the omelettes. were blanched, hard, and tasteless. Service was very slow, and ungracious. The omelette cook would barely acknowledge our conversation. We originally came here because... More

This large breakfast venue located at Waikoloa Hilton Resort is of average value. They have a cooked buffet for $29 and a continental buffet for $24 - I would have thought the continental buffet could have been much better priced. There are some ala carte items but not many. The cooked food is of average quality. The fruit and bakery... More

This is the ONLY place to have breakfast (besides the coffee kiosks) in the entire resort. Hence it gets VERY busy and there are long lines to get a table and for freshly cooked eggs/omelettes. Food quality is mediocre and the selection is as well, which is disappointing, considering the cost of $30 per person.

The service is great. The views are great. The food is "eh." It's what you'd get at any large catered event and the price just isn't worth it. There aren't a lot of great breakfast options in the area, so this might be a last option.

The only thing that prevented me from giving this buffet five stars is the price! $30 per person for breakfast is very high. I love breakfast foods and the options were wonderful. An omelet bar where you select your own toppings and pile them onto a plate and hand them to the chef was great. The pastries and muffins were... More

The price at 30 a person is high, but there is so much food and it is good! The chef cooking the omelets was wonderful and friendly! We had a beautiful waterfront view and a great meal. Would certainly recommend you try this while on vacation.
