Great!

With only drinks and an appetizer, we were convinced we have to return. They were great with very nice atmosphere. A bonus was a clear view of the gorgeous night sky.

This place was over-priced and the food was ok. The service left a lot to be desired. Drinks start at $15 each and they were not very good! And a small pizza cost us $29. The server was forgetful but very nice.

These bad boys where a huge hit!! We had fantastic poolside service and the taco's where just wonderful. My son had the burger and really liked it as well. The seared Ahi tuna sandwich was delicious every day that my husband ordered it!! Bar service was wonderful and timely as well!!!

We ate lunch here twice during our stay. We were able to sit at the bar and get a much needed break from the sun. The food is pricey, but on par with other restaurants at lunch on kaanapali beach. We got the hamburger and chicken sandwich. Both were good. The portions are large, so we didn't end up finishing... More

$4 for 4 huge buffalo chicken strips. $8 mai tai. But beware, $4 for 4 onion rings. Yes, 4 rings. Great to sit by the pool with the food and drinks. Normal menu is quite expensive. Had a tiny piece of cake for $10.

It was very convenient near the pool. Decent food, my 3 children ate there almost everyday for lunch. Portions were large, so keep that in mind of the price. We experienced excellent service.

Had the trio slider and the ahi one was the best! Other 2 were ok. It is a bit pricey, but expected at a hotel restaurant.

The menu got a little old as it is the only restaurant opened for lunch at the resort. Typical poolside meals- wings, burgers, chicken fingers, a few salads. Food was good, but the menu was a little standard.

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Maui in Kaanapali, Maui. We had lunch twice at the Umalu, which is poolside and has a nice view of the beach. The menu is more on sandwiches and salads, most of which were generally good. We really enjoyed the Volcano-seared ahi salad. The ahi was raw and seared to perfection. The greens were... More
