During our honeymoon, my husband and I stayed at three different hotels, each of which included breakfast in our package. Besides getting to enjoy an array of amenities at each hotel, we also got to enjoy a variety of breakfasts.
The first hotel during our trip was the Grand Hyatt in Kauai. At this hotel, breakfast was served as a buffet. This buffet offered a wide variety of breakfast dishes. There was an omelet/egg station, a wide assortment of fresh fruit, a bagel station (including lox and capers), pastries and breads. Also, there were a daily egg special, such as Eggs Benedict, a hot breakfast entrée (such as pancakes), oatmeal, miso soup, rice, bread pudding, bacon and some variety of sausage. Typical breakfast beverages were served, and diners were offered a sample of a fruit smoothie each morning.
Our second stay was at the Hyatt Regency in Maui. Much like the previous Hyatt, a buffet was the breakfast offering. However, this buffet offered a few more choices. Each day there were two different sausages, more breads and pastries from which to choose, and steamed fish. However, the hot egg dish always was Eggs Benedict and didn’t vary daily as the other Hyatt did.
The third hotel was Hotel Hana Maui. This hotel was much smaller and had fewer breakfast choices. Breakfast was served a la carte and included a tray of fresh fruit and freshly baked bread, juice or more fruit, and coffee. The breakfast menu had about 10 items from which diners could choose, all of which were made from locally grown or raised ingredients. The menu included two different omelets, Eggs Benedict made with local fish, and taro pancakes.
Having experienced less than excellent dinners at our first two locations, breakfasts definitely were the eating highlight of that part of our honeymoon. At each hotel that we stayed, we had attentive servers, delicious food choices, and no bill. Plus, with dining on premises, it always was a short walk or elevator ride to breakfast, which is a plus on vacation. No need to get in the car and find a diner or coffee shop.
