Multiple Eateries All In One!

Like most restaurants in the Hyatt, they use them for all 3 meals. Our favorite was breakfast, a very large buffet and a made to order omelet station. Fresh squeezed local juice was my favorite treat in the mornings...it was pomegranate, then mango...super yummy!

Our family tried to have a relaxing day and started it with they're Sunday brunch. Food was good ,however my wife was insulted from a waiter that made loud comments(signing) about my wife's figure(behind) to his colleagues and so loud that the whole dinning room could hear. This waiter should be send to behavior sessions and be not allowed to... More

We have been there twice. You really have to sit outdoors to get the whole experience. This place is in the Hyatt but it is built into the landscape outside which is kind of like a Jungle setting. Not cheesy like Rainforest cafe, but much more more than just a couple trees and a Koi pond. It is a very... More

Wonderful service, ambiance and food. There is a large selection of choices at the all you can eat brunch including an omelet station. The fresh squeezed orange juice was a nice addition.

I felt like I was eating Taco Bell while on the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland. The food was downright awful and no where even in the realm of what should be allowed to be called Mexican food. Their salsa, no joke, tasted like ketchup. We should have walked out then. If you're a mexican restaurant and you can't manage salsa,... More

This was a very romantic dinner and the food was excellent. We sat at the edge of the pond and watched the swans swim by. My husband said that his filet was the best he's had in his life! Very pricey but worth it for a special dinner.

Beautiful setting outdoors by lagoon, surrounded by Palm trees Ordered items off menu and no problem with creating your own entree combination. Same for desert. Great service and food well prepared. A true dining experience-- never rushed

New Year's Eve party was a disaster. The food was inedible. Ad stated entertainment and there was none. The service was even worse than the food. This hotel's food has really gone downhill. The meal was worse than at an all inclusive and the bill was over $150.00 per person.
