Good breakfast, same every day for a week.

I ate breakfast every morning. The food, though good, did not offer variety, don't get me wrong- a lot of variety in types of food they offered and lots of it, but every day was the same. I was surprised at the lack of variety of fruit, I went here on my honeymoon 81/2 yrs ago and they a ton... read more

The daily breakfast was very good. The omelette was very good. Several good food choices. Liked eating down by the water to watch the white swans.

The Hyatt Resort in Kauai is one of the most wonderful places I've stayed in all my travels. This restaurant has good food and is a great place to start your day.

My family always visits the Ilima Terrace at the Grand Hyatt for brunch when we visit Kauai. The staff is extremely kind and the food is delicious. There is an enormous variety including: fresh fruit, breads and pastries, pancakes, porridge, omelettes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, yogurts and jams. My family always requests a table near the pond.

Loved the casual breakfast. Lots of options for adults and kids. Great service! Always encouraging you to take food for later. Something for everyone.

This is where we ate breakfast a majority of the mornings we stayed at the Grand Hyatt. It had a breakfast buffet, which was fine, but I really recommend the omelets (which are included in the buffet)! The birds are a little annoying, but not that big of a deal. Great views! Ate lunch here once and it was wonderful... More

Get there early to avoid the crowds and go straight to the omelet bar. Plenty of variety and if you leave there hungry it's your own fault. If you have to leave your table for anything, be sure to cover your plate with a napkin... the birds will swoop in and clean it off in 30 seconds.

Always choose the breakfast buffet here. They continue to have the best breakfast EVER. Wonderful egg and omelette station and choices of everything else you could imagine. Grab those mac-sticky buns if you see them because they are not there every morning - which I miss- but they are worth the wait. The BEST ever!

I was skeptical given it was part of our package, but the food quality was quite good. Everything was tasty and well done. The omelettes were quite good. Nothing fancy but well made and consistent. They also had a wide array of GLUTEN FREE baked goodies and pancakes, which was great for my wife who has Celiac Disease. You have... More
