Great ocean view while eating

The views from the patio area were wonderful. The people were very friendly. The only food we tried were the burgers, but they were excellent. The menu seemed to have a good variety of foods and drinks. It was one of the few bright spots at the Marriot.

This is one of my favorite parts of the hotel. The location of the Kalapaki Grill could not be any more ideal. When booking this trip, I hoped for sand side service and my boyfriend hoped for poolside service; at Kalapaki Grill you can sit and sip just steps from both. The location could not be more ideal and the... More

Good poolside dining. I had the Big Dog and it was outstanding but the jalapeños were killer. Service was quick and friendly. The chicken tenders were nice in crisp in a cornmeal coating rather than greasy and fried. Very good Mai-Tais. The sign out front intimates that the bar/grill will stay open until the last guest leaves but that was... More

Good burgers. Nice view. There aren't a lot of great restaurants on this part of the island. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Enjoyed the drinks by the ocean and pool-side location of the Kalapaki Grill. However, was disappointed by almost zero available vegetarian choices.

We chose this restaurant from the advertising of local live show. However, we just found the local singer not the Hawaii cultural show. Food was okay, but it's a little pricy. We were surprised with how ice cream looked.

Beachfront casual atmosphere restaurant. Ordered steak dinners and grilled cheese for granddaughter. Wasnt impressed by kids menu choices, nor the poorly grilled cheese we got, but the steak dinner was fabulous. I have eaten steak at much kore expensive restaurants before and was not as impressed as I was here. Very yummy garlic sauce. A little pricey for dinner though.
