We spent 3 days here on all inclusive, that's 3 each breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
The hotel does not cater for vegetarians. We struggled to find food that we could eat. We ended up eating pasta mostly, there was an option of cheese sauce or tomato sauce, got so boring. They used to serve rice with vegetables but add ham to it. Plain white rice, but if you wanted beans with that, it had pork in it. Most salads had meat added to them. Yet the choice for non-vegetarians was excellent. So I don't understand why they had to add meat to the salads as there was a lot of meat served anyway.
The snacks served in between meals had absolutely nothing for vegetarians, they served hamburgers, hot dogs, canapés, all non-vegetarian. Surely a 4 star hotel is aware that there could be people staying in their hotel that don't eat meat. We did bring this to their attention via the complaints officer, but apart from some cheesy canapés, there was no change whatsoever with the food. The hotel, I feel, made no attempt to speak with us or try and help us by offering suitable food, which would have gone a long way in making our stay special. There were 3 of us, so how difficult would it have been for the chef to prepare something for us. Most disappointing. And to think we paid the same money as the other guests.
