Try the Kualua Pork!

If you like the BBQ pork on the islands then this is a must-have.....was the best I had over 3 islands! Delicious!! Nice pool side grill---can eat there, take away in nice baskets or have pool or beach service.

The restaurant is located in the Marriott, pool side, and viewing the ocean waters and beach. But, it is not a pool side restaurant. Much better, and yet a resort casual atmosphere. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. The food is delicious, it became a favorite hang out when everyone was at the resort. Drinks are fantastic and not... More

For a pool side restaurant, the food is very tasty. My favorite was the Quesadilla (either pork or chicken). The kids got Chicken Tenders that were better than fast food. Their fries are great too. Of course you pay for pool side convenience, but it's a nice treat on vacation. Be sure to order before you're really hungry as it... More

Poolside service. Servers come to you to take your order or you can order at the bar or tables. Would like it better if they'd stay open into the evening. The only other casual onsite option at the hotel is Dukes Barefoot and it's typically a 45-minute wait to get a table even during this slower time that we were... More

We stayed at The Marriot during January and the Kalapaki Grill soon became a regular hangout for our family group of 11. The Kalapaki Grill is situated at the Marriot by the beach. Special mention must be made of Kurt who made everyone feel special as he was not just efficient at his job but incredibly friendly and efficient. We... More

This is the grill on the pool side of the Marriott. It has a great selection of fish sandwiches and salads, as well as the usual burgers. We ate there several times and enjoyed the food and the service.

We ate here one rainy afternoon while waiting for our room. Lucky enough to have the famous Cheryl take great care of us. Food was good and served in cute bamboo steamers. We will eat here again during our stay I'm sure.

BLT wrap was the tastiest food I had all week. Great location by pool or right off beach walk. All the servers are friendly. And yes, Missy and Kirk are great bartenders who are super friendly and down to earth people. It is staff like this that keeps people coming back even when the rooms are small and dated.
