The setting in the Hilton Waikoloa Village is incomparable overlooking the lagoon and views out to the ocean. The buffet is huge...breads, pastries, juices, cereals, fruits, omelette station,, bacon, sausages, Japanese favourites - miso soup and vegetables and rice, etc. You certainly won't go hungry, that's for sure. The criticism of this and every buffet is that you (in this... More

The breakfast here was quite good and reasonably priced for what we got. Omelets and other cooked-to-order egg dishes, all the usual breakfast items you see at a brunch, great variety of tropical fruits, pastries, and extensive Asian breakfast, etc. Took a bit longer than I'd have expected to be seated or to get our check and pay at the...

As breakfast buffets go, this is one of the best we have experienced. We don't eat much, as we prefer a big lunch with a glass of wine or two, but the breakfast had a huge selection, lots of fresh fruit and yoghurt etc. plus all of the hot foods. Our breakfast was included in the room price (maybe we... More

They have a wide selection of foods, but nothing outstanding. Cereal, eggs, potatoes, bacon, soup, rice, and fruits. Nothing that would standout, or make you want to eat here again. Convenient for hotel guests.

This is a really good buffet, about $30 a person for adults which seems around average for this type of buffet in Hawai'i. Really good choices.

My wife and stay at this hotel at least once a year. The buffet breakfast is to die for. Everything you could possibly expect in a brunch is there and it is excellent. A bit pricey but you wont be disappointed by skimpy quality or quantity. After writing this and remembering how terrific it all is -- i think i... More
