Some people may swoon over the Grand Hyatt, but I had a different reaction. The grounds would be beautiful anywhere else, but in Kauai where nature is amazing, I was struck by an artificial feel - from the man-made lagoons to the koi ponds around the restaurant - I felt like I was in an artificial paradise. Give me the more beachy ocean front Mediterranean gourmet or the Beach House restaurant with actual ocean views. I also felt the huts of the restaurant were a little muggy. Dinner is expensive and it was good but not "I have to eat there again" good. I feel I am most likely in a minority in my opinion - but that is my take.
