Spectacular view while taking in a meal. We had Sunday brunch here with omelets, pancakes, machaca, etc... Very relaxing right next to the beach with a nice ocean breeze. Food was very good and moderately priced.

We were not staying at the resort, but had been told the restaurant was nice. Stopped in, took elevator down to restaurant level and enjoyed good food, friendly service and nice views. The food selection was very good and the prices reasonable.
