Plumeria Beach House Ratings and Reviews
The view at Plumeria Beach House is beautiful. The ocean, beach, and sand are right there in front of you. The breakfast buffet is nothing extraordinary, but it is good. You can eat leisurely and the staff will never rush you. However, I feel like the hotel has lost some of its hospitality. It used to feel very luxurious and very classy here. I feel the staff is not as friendly, warm, or inviting anymore. You can see that the hotel is aging and that it has some natural wear and tear. Overall, a pleasant experience, but expected a little more.
I went for breakfast. Corinne and Victoria served me. Excellent service. Spoke Cantonese with Victoria.
Excellent food. I loved the Rainbow Pancakes. I am now addicted to coconut syrup (and I bought some and am using it in my coffee here in SF).
The view. The food. The service. A completely amazing experience. A must do if you want to pamper yourself or make an impression on someone.
This was my first time eating dinner at Plumeria Cafe. I thought the appetizers were phenomenal. The eggplant with miso, kabayaki and truffle battle had great flavor! The spicy ahi roll w/ ocean salad and tomatillo salsa was just as amazing. For entree's, my wife had the clam linguini, which was a huge portion, she was unable to finish it. I opted for the Fried chicken w/ pineapple cole slaw and sirracha cornbread. The half portioned chicken and cole slaw hit the mark. It was very juicy. I wish we had room for dessert but we were stuffed. The service was great! We did not wait between courses. Staff was very pleasant and the atmosphere was very relaxing and enjoyable.
Excellent ambience and decent service. However, menu was extremely limited, especially for vegetarians! Had to go for vegetable saimin soup which was $18 and subpar in quality. Tasted like an $4 instant soup cup from the supermarket. Watermelon salad portion was tiny--what a rip-off for $15! My wife's mushroom appetizer consisted of 3 slices (!) of one mushroom and it was very bland. In the future, we'll simply get drinks upstairs to enjoy the beauty of the ocean and stay away from dining. If you have to eat, choose Hoku Restaurant (upstairs) but stay away from Plumeria Beach House!
Took friends to seafood dinner buffet last weekend. Hospitality was good; we chose a different table that was not on the kitchen by ways ... a table inside, not so humid, and with the buffet close by. We should have gotten there earlier for guests to see the surrounding lagoon and garden ponds and waterfall before sitting down to dine. Outstanding Dungeness crab legs mixed with snow crab legs, fresh oysters on half shell and miso butterfish and prime rib roast were the standouts. I ddnt try the pork belly udon in broth, but it looked tempting. Chilled shrimp, a lovely array of sashimi and sushi awaited also, but had no room for it. Lots of cold salad with potato salad and a broccoli with shrimp cream chilled salad were generously offered.
All wait help was quite busy, and the only minus was I didn't get my coffee for several minutes after dinner although Travis a new hire was doing a great job of being courteous and helpful.
For ambience the Kahala is hard to beat, and there is a pianist in the upstairs lobby with dancing. Fifty years ago we spent our honeymoon here, when it was the Kahala Hilton, the top hotel for dinner, dancing and ocean view rooms!
Service was great. Our Bartender, Gene, made a delicious White Russian drink. Our server, Jarrett, was very attentive. The scalloped potatoes were very popular and delicious. There was a lot of verify to choose from. Starting with salads and sushi, soups and prime rib, pastas and crab legs. It was a pricey $60 per person buffet but the complementary 4 hour validated parking really sealed our decision to go here.
The Thursday night Kamanania special is one of our favorites. Nice magical dinner in an absolutely breathtaking setting. Salad bar and dessert bars round out a pretty broad choice of entrees for a more than reasonable price considering the ambiance and superb and very friendly service. Has become one of our special treat destinations.
Walked the beautiful grounds before dinner. Had a beautiful view of the water and sunset during the delicious dinner. Enjoyed the lovely live Hawaiian music too. Our server Jarrett was attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and went out of his way for the seven of us. We all had a great time Sunday night.
