The view was beautiful. The buffet was elegantly presented, everything was fresh and well prepared. The service was adequate for a buffet

Good food! The fried shrimp an grouper were excellent. Crab was OK, not grade A but not expected on a buffet. Good service, deserts could use some improvement. Key Lime Pie was too sweet an no lime.

Wife and I went for the Seafood/Prime Rib Buffet. Extensive choices including Crab Legs and Oysters on the half shell and much, much more. Our son is a 5 Star Chef and this would have been up to his standards.

The buffet has all kinds of foods including crab legs, oysters, prime rib and more. There's a great selection of very tasty foods. The price is inline with the food, although I do think a beverage should be included.

The beach is nice (although not much left). The bar is nice but the buffet sucks. The food is too commercialized. Nothing gourmet here. Very poor quality. They are definitely catering to those without taste buds

I felt that the dinner was expensive for a buffet. The hotel will give you a scratch off for a discount but, still $40 per person is expensive. The food was average.
