I was fortunate to get a reservation, though I booked rather late. The staff were very pleasant and the food was excellent! They had a special buffet for children, that seemed to work well. Would recommend this restaurant highly!

The waitstaff is so friendly and the buffet provides so many options. The omelettes were made to order, as are waffles. It's so convenient to just go downstairs to have a great breakfast. And the views are amazing.

Caretta on the Gulf (inside the Sandpearl Resort) came highly recommended to us. "Don't miss this restaurant," was how it was described to us. It didn't disappoint. Our server was "Nate." This man is such a 'pro." He made a scrumptious meal even more delightful....More

We left Caretta's with a mixed feeling. First, the service (Russ) was excellent - couldn't be better. The drinks were also very good. For an appetizer we had the scallops and Caprese Salad. The scallops were excellent but the Caprese Salad was a bit salty....More

Basically, with the exception of bathing suits, bare chest or feet, it it your choice. You will not feel uncomfortable dressed casually. It is located on the beach.

Response from Wendell B | Reviewed this property |
I would suggest resort casual is appropriate for lunch. Nice shirt and shorts. Probably business casual for dinner. Sport coat and long pants.
We know parking is tough at the beach, Do you have valet service available for your restaurant? If so...where do we enter?
