The free breakfast buffet was offered with our room package so we went twice out of our 7 day stay, that should speak for itself.. the food was ok, bacon tasted odd, missing salt maybe? Not that many choices for as big as it was!

It is loud and crowded every day. Some of us just want some cereal and coffee along with some peace and quiet. Go elsewhere.

Excellent food and food choices. But extremely expensive. Wait is never less than 15-20 minutes. Servers never make eye contact with you when you get the buffet, so service is horrible if you want a glass of water, tea or coffee. Would not recommend unless breakfast is included in your rate.

Very pricey but almost anything you could possibly want to eat. We had a big breakfast and needed nothing more until a light dinner. Good quality but, again, quite expensive for a breakfast.

We walked in to see what all was offered for the breakfast and walked out. $32 per person for a breakfast buffet is insane.

We upgraded to the full breakfast - everything was great and there is so much to choose from! The only difficulty is finding a table at certain times. The servers are all polite and friendly.

You are pretty much held hostage if you want to eat breakfast at the Waikoloa. $24.95 for a continental breakfast and $32.95 for added bacon, sausage, and omelet bar. Pretty much like eating at a Shoney's at Ritz prices. To me the food wasn't up to Hilton standards. The only saving grace for me and my wife was I am... More

Not to get excited about here! Just your average breakfast buffet that cost $70 for 2 people which is ridiculous. The have omelets to order but way too greasy and they cook your meat and veggies in large amount of butter. Would not recommend this place at all.

overpriced and average food but nice view. Your only options are continental breakfast that costs $24.95 per person or full buffet at $32.95 per person. Need I say more? Prices are insane for what you get.

At $34/ person I was expecting something better than Bob Evan's quality food. The huge buffet breakfast room has a fabulous view of the ocean and resort. The furniture, carpet and decor need an update. The food was ordinary (although the omelets were pretty good - after waiting 15 minutes in line to order). No interesting items on the steamer...
