French toast very moist and tasty. Will also cook fresh pancakes at the grill vs the less fresh on the buffet. Variety of fresh juice, fruit, pastry. And many Mexican dishes as well. Believe it or not, bagels and lox. The bagels are, well, sad, but toasted with cream cheese, lox and tomatoes will create a pretty tasty dish. French... More

The service and food at La Casona was excellent on both occasions we visited. The attention to detail and overall ambiance was that of a 5 star restaurant. Mario in particular provided above and beyond service. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Had dinner here three times this week. Fresh fish, great steaks and killer appetizers. Margaritas are a big plus. Breakfast buffet has everything one could imagine in a lovely setting.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate my wife's 40th Birthday party. The service was impeccable; Miguel was our Waiter with Enzo and Rogelio as the back Waiters... bravo to all 3. The food was very good, even with some special requests everything came out perfect to the table. The prices were very reasonable but the service was the best we... More

Ordered their Casona speciality for two. Even server questioned that we were "sharing", as he set down the small dish--almost cold--and the sauces arrived another 10 minutes later.

I was not at all disappointed in the cost for the All Inclusive when it came to the dining experience at La Casona! The staff's attention was excellent and the food was definitely prepared with care. The eggs benedict for breakfast was simply amazing. I had it another time at the sister resort next door and it didn't compare. It... More

We were three couples. We ordered a variety of food - soup, salad, mahi-mahi, steaks, pasta and coffee. The fish was excellent. One of the steaks was cooked perfectly and the other steak was tough. As far as dessert, I would definitely stick with the ice cream. I expected higher prices so I was pleasantly surprised. The service is good.... More

This was the best day of my vacation!!! Cooking with Head Chef at La Casona and eating after we helped prepared each course. They made us feel like star chefs on the cooking channel! We were greeted with the complete recipe of our dinner. Then they brought out chef's coats with our names embroidered! How cool is that! Then we... More
