With three of our party being gluten free, it was a wonderful surprise to find so many options. The wait staff were always friendly and helpful. We can't wait to come back!

The Rainbow Lanai opens at 5:30am, which is great for those suffering from jetlag. Not only will you find the typical breakfast staples of fresh fruit (wow...amazing), omelets, and a variety of breads, but you will also find real food - fish, rice, chicken, etc....More

Enjoyed a nice buffet breakfast at the Rainbow Lanai. Food was very good and catered to all. Only issue was the price. There was no way adults could eat $40 worth of food for breakfast.

This is a buffet with many different items. They have an omelet bar in addition. I'm not positive but they may have an alternative for just a continental breakfast option with limited items. The food is delicious but not... More
