We stayed 2 nights at the Hyatt during the week of 8-11 and were unsure of where to grab breakfast. We took a look at the breakfast buffet and thought overall, it was a decent value compared to what you would get elsewhere for a lot less food and quality food at that. We felt that if we had a...

We really enjoyed our meals here, especially if you get a waterside tabel overlooking the black swans - beautiful! Ruinas del Mar offers an Impressive breakfast (including a great buffet if you want to fill up for the day) & is also a romantic setting for dinner. We highly recommend it if staying at the Hyatt or other nearby hotels.

Ruinas del Mar, in the Hyatt Aruba, looks like a Caribbean castle surrounded by a moat with swans and sea turtles. Arrive around 6:30 to get a waterside table for the most romantic ambiance. The shrimp coctail appetizer was fantastic, and the catch of the day moist and beautifully prepared. The staff is island friendly and attentive. The restaurant sits... More

We had been regulars here until a few years ago when the menu changed. It has changed for the better, for us, and we decided to try again. My wife requested a non-menu item--vegetable plate--and the waiter didn't even block, no problem--broccoli, asparagus, carrots, and tomato. I had filet. After the order, the waiter came back to see if the... More

We have been dining at this restaurant since they opened in 1990. This was the first time that we were slightly disappointed. The restaurants at the Hyatt have been revamped and redecorating has taken place, but the Ruinas del Mar still has the same basic layout with outside dining seating being at a premium. It wasn't all that busy but... More

This is Hyatt's little jewel. The terrace surrounds a pond with black swans and fish and a beautiful fountain! The service is very good and the food is o.k. You come here to experience tranquility after a long hard day at the beach! It is truly a delightful way to end your day.

This was the first meal in Aruba for my wife and I. We were aware it was going to be on the $$ side. The location is in the Hyatt Resort. Very interesting layout as we ate outside by the relfecting pool with the carp and black geese. We both had fish--Grouper and Mahi Mahi. Cooked to perfection. Bread basket... More
