We were given compensation meals from the Isla Grand for breakfast at the hotel. The buffet breakfast was amazing and they will make you omelets to order. Fresh fruit is bountiful and the homemade biscuits are amazing.

The food was very good, but service was lacking. They did apologize and make up for it with a complimentary dessert. And let me clarify, the waiter was attentive, but the food (if ordering off the menu and not the buffett) took a long time.

Although the service was very good the food choices on the buffet were very limited. What they did have was tasty. The posole soup had excellent flavor. The buffet line was somewhat akward.
