What a place! The location and view unparalleled, the food is truly outstanding, we got addicted and after our third visit in a row we got to meet the chef Jose Miguel and we understood why it is so good, he has been with the restaurant for 23 years!

We had a great lunch at Rico Tico and then spent the afternoon by the pool. The drink specials were good, and the pool area is beautiful, with a great view of the ocean. The staff and service were excellent and the food and drinks were very good. And our two teenage daughters loved the pool and waterslide!

The Rico Tico Grill is a must for dinner when Leo is playing. The food was good, nothing extraordinary, but the entertainment made up for that. Leo had the entire place singing and dancing.

As I've stated in multiple other reviews, we typically stay away from hotel restaurants. However, we arrived late and didn't have the energy to hunt down an outside restaurant. Good for us as we would have never experienced the banana flambé show. Overall, the meal was excellent and the service was very friendly and attentive. Something happened with my meal... More

Inside the hotel near the pool, the casual restaurant has wonderful fresh food. We ordered the Tuna with Wasabi and another with garlic and both were amazingly good. Some of the best we've had anywhere. The tuna had been caught that AM. They also have Tex Mex and Kids menu options.
