When we first arrived we were worried. The food seemed too upscale. But we were pleasantly surprised. The food turned out to be amazing and it was definitely worth it. The staff (Francisco, Nicole, Wanda, Danny, Isidro, Manuel and Daniel) were great as well.

I am appalled by how unprofessional the staff at this resort behaved. I called to make a reservation, and no one told me that this is adults only. I took a taxi from another resort, spent 20 minutes waiting at the resort, and in the end they categorically refused us entry because of my son. Evening ruined.

What a pleasant experience. An oasis of excellence! Quiet, low key, very professional. Excellent food and wine. A killer Manhattan! from appetizer to desert, we were on cloud nine. Nicole checked us in with a pleasant, comforting smile. Francisco, Danny, Isidro Manual and Martin all worked very hard but very easily as a team to tend to our every need,... More

A visit to Passion is a Culinary Adventure most people never get to experience during their normal work week. Extraordinary food prepared in an extraordinary way. Try this once in a lifetime dining experience.

This restaurant exceeded our expectations and trust me when I say we are foodies and have high standards. The menu was fantastic and the wine selection was 5 stars!! It's everything you can expect form a 4 diamond award wining restaurant and worth every penny. Very romantic setting but good for larger groups as well. We took the remainder of... More

This dinner was really interesting. It took like 3.5 hours so make sure you have plenty of time. It is a beautiful place and the food is a bit unusual.

The tasting menu is awesome. It is supposed to be a seven course tasting menu, but it ended being a ten course dinner. I would rank it on par with many of the top restaurants in NYC. It's only $60 extra per person. Well worth it.

I am a foodie, I enjoy new restaurants, ethnic, gourmet, etc. I have to say this place has definitely fullfiled my longtime wish to experience fine gourmet dinning, Top Chef style. The food was exquisite, exceeded my expectations and was complimented by the best service I have ever enjoyed. If you visit this resort I highly recommend you treat yourself... More

I ate a number of things I never would have tried and found them to be quite delicious. The way food is made here is astounding!
