This place has the best brunch on the island. It has something for everyone. I love the made to order waffles and the eggs Benedict. Make reservations for mothers day and Easter.

It was part of the JW Marriott which has closed. It is undergoing renovation an will reopen as a 4 Seasons in mid 2016. I'm sure the hotel will contain restaurants again, but not sure Naupaka Terrace will resurrect.

Chef Joel did a great job on our Christmas meal. We ordered room service and he put together a special vegan meal for my wife. Very creative use of vegetables partnered with well thought out flavors. Thank you again Chef

The service wasn't anything fantastic,... More

As others have mentioned, this hotel and all its restaurants will be closed as of 1-12-15 while the property is refurbished by Four Seasons as a time share enterprise. Our waiter was terrific but the food was not. My ribeye steak was a cheaper cut priced at $46 and overcooked to boot. The rest of the food was also average... More

We attended a special prime rib special night. The salad bar was very good and the meat was delicious; the service was warm and attentive. It was worth every penny.

What made me think their turkey day dinner buffet for $60 was going to be better than Makahiki next door at $45 is beyond me . Don't do it is all I can say - if their everyday buffet is anything like it , and I'm sure it is, steer clear. Food was boring , canned or packaged tasting and... More
