The breakfast buffet was very tasty with a nice variety and healthy choices. The wait was long however and the area is small with tightly packed tables that makes walking to and from the buffet difficult.

We came for breakfast on a Sunday, we arrived around 9:30am and there was about a 20 minute wait, but we had a larger party. Once seated it was a little dirty, some syrup and jelly still left on seats and the high chairs, I wish the staff had been a little more attentive to cleaning up after the last... More

Have a very friendly staff there and food and drinks were excellent. Made sure we had everything we needed and really catered to my grandaughter.

Big selection, fresh food - including fresh squeezed OJ. Service was quick. Get there early - it was starting to get packed when we left.

Food was very good and prices reasonable. Fish tacos were a hit. Could watch the lobby movie while eating as well.

We had a meal deal here, and really enjoyed the breakfast buffet. There were lots of options. The one negative was that the bacon was deep fried - yuck, but other than that the breakfast was great. We had pizza from here one night as well, it was nothing special, in fact it was very, very greasy.

We stayed at the hotel and had breakfast included in our meal. I have to say I would pay for it all over again if I had to. The breakfast buffet had a huge variety---almost everything you could possibly ask for. And the orange juice was freshly squeezed! Great place to eat while you are there. Heard good things from...

I love the selection of this hotel restaurant. You can get fresh fruit, a variety of sandwiches and the prices are very reasonable. We will be back for more on our next visit to the area.

We ate there for the breakfast buffet. It was part of our room package so I don't know how much is cost. All items were so fresh and delicious with a variety of breakfast meats, eggs, pastries, breads, cereals, drinks, yogurt, granola, pancakes, waffles, French toast, omlettes and more. Once the pool opens you can order pizza, chicken strips, snacks... More

You wouldn't think that the food in the hotel was good but it actually was! It's a little pricey but we made due.. We had pizza, cheese bread sticks, buffalo wings and pop.. The buffalo wings were really good.. I might just get the wings form myself next time.
