NAME: Castilla Restaurant; Mayaguez Resort and Casino [but everyone still just calls it “The Hilton” (see History)] SUMMARY: This was their Holiday [Navidad] Special Buffet. The Buffet was barely adequate. It was not “special.” Not as good as their regular, ordinary Lunch Buffets of years ago. They are supposed to have a “World-class, international Chef” if so, he must have... More

We went here for lunch and found an average buffet more expensive than ever. Won't be our choice for next year' secretary's week lunch.

Years ago their buffet was very special and a treat. Their salad bar was elaborate and unique with expensive items such as artichoke heart quarters and pickled whole baby corn. Their food bar was magnificent. And perhaps the best of all was their amazing selection of incredible deserts. Those were the days my friend, we thought they would never end... More

It may be because we arrived about a half hour or so before closing of that we picked... More

The El Castillo Restaurant is in the Mayagüez Resort, a locally owned hotel which was previously owned by the Hilton chain. It is a very elegant restaurant but dressing code is casual. We went to the Sea Food Buffet they offer on Friday evenings. The buffet is served in several very well presented tables: one with salads, another with cold... More
