The omelet bar, biscuits & gravy, bacon, sausage and potatoes were very good. The pancakes sucked! The rest was average. Very expensive breakfast buffet for 2 @ $70. Worth one convenient try, but we went to the Island Lava Java for breakfast the next time.

Too expensive for what you receive - $60 bucks for breakfast? I just wanted a bagel. Long lines, no mimosas. Boo! We should have driven down the street to Starbucks for a cheaper experience.

After staying at the Hilton resort for a week we decided to try the Big Island Breakfast. We were promptly seated by a window and our hostess/server(?) made several suggestions. We settled on the buffet with our omelets prepared in the kitchen. The omelet appeared to be made with fresh eggs (not the ones that come out of a bottle)... More

Management gave my husband and me a coupon for one breakfast each, because of problems we had with our room. Otherwise, we would have never gone here as we had no interest in paying the $30 (plus tip) per person charge for the buffet breakfast offered each morning. We quickly learned that not only is the buffet pricey, it also... More

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
