Eduardo at Don Quijote is the best. Took care of me in April and again in December. Made our dining experiences very special. Lots of activities for all ages and very attentive staff. Every room looks out to the ocean. We will be back.

They offered us a 10pm reservation one evening for dinner. Who wants to eat dinner at 10pm? Then when you go by the it was not full. We were not...
