Management needs to look at Kitchens and cleaning rotes. Quality of food poor Waitresses spending a lot of time apologising to guests. They deserve a medal!

we had a most enjoyable stay here at rendezvous. it was a pleasure to find that breakfast was included. the setting was lovely and the breakfast chef was most helpful with our gluten free needs.

if we had not been staying in rendezvous we would not have known there was a restaurant there called the straits. the breakfast was a nice mix of hot and cold, everything you would expect from a buffet. we will be back for dinner. there is a delightful view over the very inviting pool
