Beautiful setting, Wonderful, attentive bartenders, but the food sucks. Both our dinners at $35.00 and $40.00 were cooked to dry sawdust. How can you screw up a piece of local fish? Most Hawai'i restaurants, outside of 5 or 10 in Honolulu served sh#t*y food. Don't expect it to change. This eatery is housed in a hotel who has little care... More

We had dinner a number of times at the Hawaii Calls Restaurant during our recent stay at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort. We're not normally big fans of eating dinner at the hotel we stay in but we couldn't bypass the convenience and great setting that the restaurant offers. The restaurant has a number of specialty nights which make it... More

This place was good not great. We had buffet breakfast everyday there and it was good. Lot of choices that got rotated frequently. We had dinner there on a special lobster night. It was good and not too expensive. They ran a bunch of special which helped take the sting out of high Hawaii prices. Eat there on one of... More

The food was a bit pricey, but the service was outstanding, and the view was spectacular. Other than room service, this is pretty much your dining option at the hotel. A short walk to Kings and Queens village, but other than Roy's or Merriman's this is as good a place as any.

This restaurant and bar at the Marriott Waikoloa Beach Resort is a great location to enjoy open air dining while having an excellent meal, a bottle of wine, and watching the sunset. To make it even better go Monday or Thursday when all entrees are 50% off…what a deal! The restaurant overlooks the hotels infinity pool and the beach with... More

Usually restaurants at a hotel are kind of pricey but this restaurant had so many different specials that you never felt like you were paying too much. They have a great half off special on Mondays and Thursdays. I took advantage of that and got an excellent prime dinner for $21 they have different portions to chose from and you... More

We didn't stay at the Marriott, but went there once for their breakfast buffet. Cleanest, best selection I've seen. Would definitely go back!

The Spicy Tuna pockets were delicious. We ordered those as appetizers every night. The duck ($34) was great, cooked to order and very tasty, not gamey. But do not order the pork belly. The pork belly was just a slab of fat and I felt like I was eating a huge piece of bacon, not worth the $28. I only... More

The Mai Tai and Haupia are the best on the Big Island! Hawaii Calls Lounge's bartenders have been working there for years and it's always great to see them every time we stay at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott. They are so welcoming, friendly and fun to chat with. If you want any information about the Big Island, go ask one... More

The hotel has a lot of specials like whole lobster on Sundays for $22 (which was pretty fresh) and 1/2 off entrees on Mondays and Thurs and I heard there was a special all you can eat crabs and prime rib on Friday and Sat. The deals make it worthwhile, but the food isn't all that great. I've tried the... More
