We had Christmas Dinner here, which was remarkable!!! And we've returned several times since. The margaritas are not that great but the food has been very good and the service has been excellent. My daughter particularly loved the garlic Shrimp!!

We have stayed at this beautiful beachfront hotel several times and enjoy the grounds, infinity pool, deli and pool side restaurant. We had dinner at La Estancia Restaurant and what a stark difference from our dinner experience of the night before! The food was so delicious, so creative and yet traditional Mexican.

We only ate here for breakfast on our last day. This restaurant wasn't open until the last 4 days of our stay. I believe it only opened at all because there was a large influx of Mexican nationals that checked in for the Independence Day celebration on September 15th. The breakfast was okay. Nothing special. We didn't get the buffet... More

This restaurant was only open for breakfast during our stay (end of Oct first part of Nov). Great buffet breakfast with a Mexican flair and if you order off the menu the food is very good and quick. Good staff. Would recommend.
