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.

Barely more than a standard buffet provided for free at most major hotel chains. At $29.99 US per person, very over priced in my opinion.

This buffet had a wide variety of Japanese, Hawaiian and American foods. The omelet station was staffed by a great chef. The fruits were extremely fresh and all the foods were at right temperatures.

I have a problem paying $80.00 for breakfast for two ( @ 30 plus tip). They have you trapped... Unless you leave the resort you won't find another restaurant on the resort that serves breakfast. You can grab a pastry at the coffee bar.

Every morning we started our day here and loved it. Great buffet, made to order eggs or omletts, fresh island fruit and juices, muffins are too die for. Great staff too. David our waiter gave us tips and ideas every day. The view can't be beat either.

The ambience beside the lagoon with cascading waterfalls was very romantic. The noise from the restaurant detracted from the romantic environment. I do you have medical dietary needs. My waitress was very helpful trying to make sure those needs were met. When the restaurant became busy, we felt a little rushed, but that would be true in any busy restaurant.... More
