Beautiful Restaurant particularly if you are lucky and get outside table.

My wife and I walked through the Hyatt on way to beach when we noticed vacant outside tables. They only have about half dozen tables outside and they are first come first served (not reserved). Sure enough we got table outside and decided to enjoy the view of the gardens and fish pond. Menu is... read more

Came and visited the Hyatt. Beautiful resort. Had dinner at Ruinas del Mar. Was unimpressed with food. Husband had scallops in pasta and most were raw. My salmon dish was good. Came with risotto with shrimp. Risotto was delicious but shrimp was raw. Ad says romantic atmosphere and it truly is BUT your night will be shared with the waiter.... More

This is our 10th trip to Aruba, and we now make sure we are there on a Sunday just so we can go to the Sunday brunch! The food is absolutely amazing no matter what you choose from the huge variety, and don't get me started on the desserts! The mimosas are delicious and your glass is never empty. The... More

We were here on Christmas morning for a late breakfast with our 4 kids. The youngest (4) had ordered pancakes but then started crying and melting down when she saw her brother's waffle with whipped cream. We gave her the option to eat it or go hungry. Our waiter Jarlin came over to her and asked her what she wanted... More

Well we only had brunch here and I was disappointed because our omelets were tasteless and the veggies inside were still undercooked, And for such a big 5 star hotel you have to peel your shrimps uughh disgusting thing to do while nicely dressed and smelling fresh. So if you are looking for a nice place for brunch check out... More

Amazing service, food and ambience. The AGA menu was incredible and a real bargain. Would also be a lovely setting for a Sunday Brunch.

We started our trip on a high note by coming here for brunch on Sunday! The food was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. Breakfast food, creative salads, sushi, seafood, ham with sweet and sour sauce, prime rib with espresso sauce, desserts galore and made to order bananas foster. All served with quality coffee and...

Outdoor setting, excellent food and service. My wife likes to order something that has to be made by chef rather than standard item, and this place always does it well. Never blink at her requests and the chef even came out at one point to make sure it had been done to her liking.

went here for the breakfast buffet on my wife’s birthday. There were 13 of us, including 7 children, so we sat inside this time. If you are able to, sit outside where the swans and fish are located. They have a very nice variety of breakfast options on the buffet. While it’s not super cheap, we found that kids eat... More
