We went both for dinner and lunch and each time enjoyed the experience. Lunch on Friday was very busy with an expansive buffet, very well priced. We opted for a la carte and really enjoyed it. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

While the food was excellent, I was stunned that the restaurant adds a 28% surcharge on prices that are already steep. I paid nearly sixty dollars for a plate of tilapia, a steak, two bottles of water and a milk shake.

I had some really well done pork chops at the pool deck restaurant. Of course the service was impeccable and the ambiance was exquisite.
