Had a recent stay at Royal Pines and enjoyed breakfast every day at Kalinda. Being Vegan I was a bit worried I'd get a feed but it was no problem. Not a great deal for me but what they had was tasty, fresh and cooked to perfection. Heaps of different food for everyone else and the coffee was terrific .Looking... More

Disappointing when sitting by the pool during breakfast as the birds are quite a nuisance. Not open for dinner except Friday and sat night so not able to review dinner.

Had breakfast here every day of our stay, really good, didn't have gluten free out in the open but staff were more than happy to accommodate. Kids loved the selection on offer. Hubby even liked their coffee.

The very best thing about Kalinda is the tremendous variety of breakfast buffet offered. Absolutely something for everyone's tastes ... and more. The 'hot' food is well cooked and tasty, however it is not always hot. Scrambled eggs are partnofnthe offering but if you would like your eggs any other way, there is an additional charge (I think it was... More

Such a great variety of food that is frequently replenished. All the usual suspects - cereals, fruit, yoghurt, breads, pastries, eggs, bacon, sausages etc along with cheeses and cold meats, miso soup and a hot dish of the day. Eggs benedict one day, fried rice another, pancakes and waffles. Yummo!

Great food but very noisy. Sometimes birthday parties (childrens) are held here or large groups so not good if you want conversation

This place has the most amazing buffet, even for me it ticks all the boxes. It does get very busy, specially at this time of year and you do sometimes have to line up when they are replenishing some of the dishes but there is so much variety and not just seafood. We were sitting outside and it was delightful... More
