Large Buffet

It's expensive, but if you are hungry, it's a good sized buffet. They have a chef to make eggs per your request and their buffet serves biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, french toast, fruit, fish, potatoes, pastries, cereal, etc.

This was a pricy breakfast for two! Here are the dinning selections - omelette station, pancakes, sausage, bacon, biscuits, gravy, potatoes, eggs, pastries, toast, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, fruit and Asian selections. For $30 a person...its a bit much.

The Breakfast was excellent, but very expensive like everything else in the resort. The staff was excellent. They were friendly and on the ball. The omelette Chef was terrific and very personable.

This buffet breakfast has everything you want and so much more!!! It's a little expensive, but it's worth it if your hungry. They have made to order omelettes that are awesome! They sever Kona coffee= delish! Plus quite a few fresh juices! There are so many choices if you leave hungry it's your own fault!

The food was fine, just like any other buffet but the price was just excessive. I cannot justify spending $60++ for two adults for breakfast.

price - high ($30 per person) food quality - low (eggs were overcooked, went to the omelet station, but didn't want to pay on top of the high admission price (in the form of ANOTHER tip on top of the table service) for this. Fruit was really good - everything else was just so so, and definitely not worth the... More

What a wonderful way to start the day - sitting in an open dining room upstairs and watching the world go by!

Our package came with the buffet. Everything we tried was good. Chris made great omelets. The sticky buns were to die for. I loved the papaya too.

Buffet was ok. Typical breakfast foods. Loved the fresh fruit. Best of all we enjoyed talking to Vanesa. She was so helpful and friendly. Greeted us by our names everyday, offered advise when asked about places to visit both on the property and off. She was great waitress also.
