    When booking a room, there seems tobe an option to add on breakfast for about $20 a person. Has anyone ordered the breakfast at the time of booking and if so, what is exactly included? Amy hot food or it is just continental breakfast?

    You are also able to order that option at check in time, at least we were, so you could check into what exactly was included, which is what I would suggest.
