We enjoyed our $50 brunch, but it was a little disappointing. The only meat selections were sausage and bacon, and for a family that steers away from gluten, there weren't many choices. The food was tasty and the fruit delicious. Being in Kona, one would think you'd get some tasty Kona coffee but the coffee was very watered down.

This is crazy expensive for what's being offered. We're a family of 4 and paid $100 for breakfast. Nothing special in regards to selection.

If you ask to be seated in "Sally's section" I promise you will not be let down. We had the pleasure of having Sally as our waitress and she was just delightful. She loves her job and truly provides excellent service. Now on to the buffet, the selection is quite good and refreshed constantly. They have an omelet station which... More

If you don't mind paying over $60 for two people for an average breakfast buffet, then go for it... then again, if you are not a big breakfast person, there is a Starbucks about a half mile up the road in the Queens Market...the walk will do you go. Since we are Hilton Gold members, we had discount coupons which... More

We had the Big Island Breakfast the first morning of our stay. The omelette bar was very nice, but the rest of the food is on par with an average hotel breakfast spread. The worse part of the breakfast was the coffee! It was the worse I've had in a long time, including late night gas station fill-ups! For an... More

Family ate here our last morning to bulk up before our long voyage home. Buffet Spread was decent, fresh, and omelette station worker was insane making at least 120 omelettes non stop during the morning rush. Overall it achieved its objective of feeding the kids for an action packed last morning and our late lunch at HNL airport. Service was... More

Syrup was corn based. Omelette had at least a half stick of butter in bottom of pan. Monkey paws were hard as rock. Sausage patty awful. Coffee bitter. Fruit very good.

We did the brunch 1 time and off the menu 2 times. This is the only place at a huge hotel that serves anything other than coffee and rolls! Brunch was $30 each and the wait for a table ranged from 15 min. to an hour+. When you are hungry and have places to go this is not acceptable! We... More

We only eat here for holiday buffet brunches. The buffet is one of the best on the island. Too bad they only serve it for holidays.
