SUMMATION: This Restaurant has Served Up a Series of Disappointments. I only go now when socially forced by others. GENERAL: I reviewed this place in detail 19 April 2012 (see review) and nothing much has changed. Also, 14 January 2014 (Breakfast) and 27 December (Holiday Buffet). I will just consider new things or ones I did not address before. NAME:... More

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

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
