We ate here twice, they are very good at catering for Gluten free and understand cross contamination. There was loads of food, much more than we would normally eat, hence the price to go with it was high.

First, if you have a vacation package that includes the breakfast buffet, take it. If you want to eat the breakfast buffet without a breakfast voucher, it costs about $33 per person. That is quite a high price for a breakfast buffet. On the breakfast menu, you have a choice of an "american" breakfast, "continental" breakfast, "asian/japanese" breakfasts, etc. As... More

Your standard resort buffet breakfast with the exception of lots of fresh local fruit. It is expensive even by Hawaii Resort standards and there are not any other options unless you drive off property.

I'm not sure why there are bad reviews. It was excellent. The best omelette makers ever. Loved adding Kalua pig...great taste!! My kids loved eating all the Rambutan that they could. Great selection of breads, fruit , salad. To get the best value , book through Costco to get it included.

Just your average food. if you order coffee, breakfast etc from the menu, you will end up paying close to the buffet price. Don't order room service. It is Very expensive. For example, room service Oatmeal will... More

Decent buffet if not crowded. While it looks large and the cost is high, it certainly isn't the most lavish breakfast buffet I've seen. However, it's the only option at the Hilton. With six days dining there, there was only one great server (David). The others were barely passable. They could care less. One was annoyed when I asked him... More

Breakfast is decent and service is good. From the time you arrive to the time you leave, it's a busy eatery with a view. The price of the buffet is good if you're hungry.

The great thing about the Waikoloa Big Island Breakfast is that it has something for everyone. Lots of fruit, breads, fish, cerial, bacon, eggs, sausage, an omlet bar and so much more.
