Seat yourself arrangement by pool. Slow service, food nothing special, kids meals tiny..my kids left hungry. Waitress was slow, we asked for condiments and they turned up at end of meal..too late. They were however quick to present check and pick up to see how much tip they get..not impressed, over priced and not very Hyatt like. Just use as... More

We came for an afternoon drink and later a nightcap. ATMOSPHERE: The former Pavilion self-service buffeteria is now a more upscale eatery. Gone thankfully is that nasty sandbox floor where the tables are, replaced by normal tile/stone work. The colors are bold. The umbrellas were torn and tattered. It's located poolside which is convenient. The bar is pretty big and... More

Located poolside at the Hyatt Resort in Maui, this restaurant served pricey lunch meals that were less than impressive - but it was convenient if you don't want to walk to Whaler's. I did enjoy the Volcanic Ahi salad with edemame, avocado, and sweet pecans tossed in a ginger type dressing. If not for that salad, I probably wouldn't have... More

This poolside bar/restaurant was great. Everything you would want. Fast service and good food and drinks. Drinks, try Road to Hana. Foods, try the quesadillas.

You are better off going to Lahaina where there are more choices and better prices but if you don't want to leave the Hyatt Resort, the food was good and the staff very attentive.

We ate here upon our arrival at the Hyatt - the ahi tuna nachos, although not at all like traditional nachos, were very good. Poolside, I enjoyed the ahi tuna sandwich as well as the ahi tuna salad during my stay and both were excellent. Other sandwich offerings were good. A bit pricey and the only lunch option on property... More

The food was okay here but not amazing, we ate here more out of convenience. It was too expensive and the service was not amazing.

We stayed at the Hyatt and over the course of many days we ordered the poke nachos (very good and innovative), the pork nachos and pork fries (they use some sort of nacho-like theme park cheese), green bean fries, Asian noodles and fish tacos. Nothing was bad, but not many healthy options. Yes, they had salads on their menu but... More
