    We were a party of five. Umalu is located at the Hyatt, outdoors by the pool. Service was very good. The outside setting was very nice. One of the party had the fish special which was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

    Restaurant sits inside the Hyatt Regency outside by the pools. Best to do valet if you're driving, is reasonable and you don't have to worry about finding parking. The food was decent and service was a little slow but overall for a family dinner it's a great place.

    Stayed at the Hyatt Regency this past March for a week and Umalu was a fantastic place to grab a last minute bite to eat. Would HIGHLY recommend making a reservation for a Friday, Saturday or Sunday evening as it was very crowded on Sunday evening when everyone arrived (we were a very large group of 700+ people). They do offer a "take out" option where you can order ahead or order at the desk and wait for it. The drinks from the bar are great, the bartenders were super friendly and made fantastic drinks. Very wholesome experience chatting with them, where they're from, etc. Everyday there's a drink of the day and they're good, also liked the lower cost when you order the day's drink! You can also ask the bartenders to surprise you - was never disappointed. Food: The flatbreads were delicious as was the hummus plate -- it's big enough to share with another person. I also really enjoyed the Ahi Poke Nachos! Super fresh Ahi and the chips are the local taro and sweet potato chips. My favorite that I ordered a few times over the course of our stay was the Sesame Orange Chicken Stir-Fry. Everything was so fresh and flavorful. The whole entire experience -- day or night, drinks and appies or a full meal -- fantastic and would recommend to anyone. The service was also fantastic! Everyone is super friendly and willing to give you a recommendation. Definitely planning to bring our family back in the future because the Hyatt was so good to us.

    The restaurant was hard to find it you weren’t staying at the Hyatt. And it was located at the pool. Noisy and combination of bathing suits and dresses. Sunset was amazing though.

    Disappointing. Not at all what I’d expect from the Hyatt. Service was good but nothing else was. Worst fish tacos I’ve ever had and really quite expensive given that’s it’s really just a pool bar.

    Dinner for three last night. The food was okay. Margherita pizza crust was good but unevenly cooked, blistered edges but almost underdone middle. Cheese, sauce, tomatoes and basil were good. My Korean fried chicken was good but nothing special. Two crisp fried pieces of (breast? thighs?) chicken with a sweet sauce. I personally liked the macaroni side salad but others tried it and said it was too sweet. The Kimchi was good. I’ve already forgotten what our third diner had so it wasn’t anything special. I had ordered a starter Kale salad that never appeared except on the bill. The server seemed a little bit overwhelmed even though the patio wasn’t full and there were two people taking orders. Unfortunately, I don’t see any reason drawing me to come back

    Food was meh. Hostess service was sad and depressing, like they were put out to have to seat us with our reservation. Our waitress was ok, location with ocean views that are so amazing made it better but the food wasn't worth it. Standard crazy overpriced for what you got blah fare. Prawn noodle dish had 3 shrinp. Definitely not prawns, we just expected a bit more from the Hyatt.

    Honestly, it was pub food with a pool side ambience. The three things we ordered were super bland and tasteless (salad, quesadillas, and tacos). Normally food in Maui is pretty good and there is a lot of pride in that, but it’s clear that’s not the case here. We were starving and it was late, so not much for options nearby that was still open, but honestly I would not go back. There are much better food options on the island for your money.

    We went here for dinner, ordered Ahi poke nachos, and Mahi Mahi Tacos. We also went to lunch the next day , we ordered the margherita flat breads and onion rings. The flat breads tasted ok and missed salt and pepper. The crust was thicker than a usual flat bread. But the ambiance is great and awesome. Service is ok too.

    We waited a long time for a server to come over. She was super nice. The place was not busy, but we chalked it up to lack of servers. My husband ordered fish tacos and I ordered a wood fired pizza. It took A LONG TIME to come out and when it did it was only the tacos. The server told us to enjoy the tacos first and the pizza would be out later. What? My husband ate the tacos while I waited for my dinner, but they were already cold when he got them. My pizza came after he was done so he helped me eat it. It was good. The chocolate coconut cake was delicious. The outside seating was beautiful, but overall not too impressed. Then when we left we were charged $11 for parking. Not a great value in my opinion.

    We were expecting a nice table, but it was clear when we arrived they didn't have a table saved for us. They offered a pub table at the bar, which was loud. My husband ordered a dish with shrimp, and it only had 3 shrimp on it. Just wanted the experienced we'd hoped for.
