I had the ahi and my husband had the seared scallops. Both meals were delicious. Very casual, we came from the pool with beach cover-ups expecting bar food, we were pleasantly surprised.

Terrible first impression of our stay with server Brittany being quite rude. My friend is under 5 feet and when people don't look at her face, assume she's very young. As a result, she was asked for ID and sent back to the room to get it (who carries their passport around when they're by the pool?!!!). I said I... More

The only thing that Umalu has going for it that it is adjacent to the Hyatt's pool. Food and service there are abysmal. It serves uninspired, fast food-quality food. Even when it's not packed with a bunch of loud frat types, the service leaves much to be desired, particularly at the bar. Drinks are better in the grotto. The adjacent... More

$15 for a handful of wings and $19 for TWO tacos and 6 tortilla chips? Are you kidding me?! The food was decent but not at all worth the price. My suggestion? Go down the street to Duke's. We ate there last night and ate like kings and queens for the same price as this poolside fare.

Aloha Sarah A Sorry to see the pricing for some of our items was high here at the Resort. We are happy to see the quality of food was acceptable and would like to suggest on a future visit you try our daily happy hour items which are a fantastic deal: $6 for green bean fries and chips and guacamole...

Umalu's makes a good (and strong) Mai Tai. Everything on the lunch menu is delicious, especially the ahi nachos and chicken Mexican salad with cilantro lime vinaigrette. Outdoor seating area is nice and the staff is friendly. Great island reggae tunes to enjoy all day long!

The tacos and the quesadilla were good. I would skip the nachos. For the price of the nachos, I expected them to have really cheese and not velvetta.

It's open until midnight, the atmosphere on this beach restaurant is fabulous, they really think you are hungry so you get a huge portion of everything, especially chicken nuggets on french fries not really French! Wonderful music during the day.
