Graet place to eat

Excellent choice from a quick sandwich or salad to more elaborated meal. Service is very good and a lot of good options to chose from

The food is excellent, the service is good, but a tad slow. The drawback is the amount of noise from the kids screaming at the pool directly below the terrace, so eat inside if you want a more quiet experience.

This restaurant has an outstanding view of the ocean. Have a cocktail and watch the sun go down... Beautiful. Unfortunately once the sun has gone down your left with an OK restaurant serving OK food. Our server was charming but as we were eating at just before 9pm seemed in a rush to close off our table. We were asked... More

While the staff is super friendly and helpful around the pool, the service is slow! The food comes and seems a bit dried out and average.

We came here for a 30th birthday celebration, and the brunch did not disappoint! However, don't order the brunch unless you're really ready to chow down. It's a bit pricey, but worth it if you want to try a variety of items. Most everything you can order on the menu can be chosen at the buffet. The coffee is very... More

I spent 5 nights at the resort and ate breakfast each day at the Coliseum. The breakfast buffet offers a wide variety and everything is great! I look forward to this breakfast whenever I am staying at the resort. The service is wonderful too! Although I have not eaten lunch and dinner there....it is always crowded and looks nice and...

Good food, attentive service, but somewhat overpriced which is to be expected at a five star resort.
