I'm not a fan of buffets. The food is typically overheated/dried out.... But this one is different! Both breakfast and dinner are exceptional and offer a wide variety of yummy goodness!

This is breakfast buffet done correctly. Quality over quantity. There were many food option including an omelette station. Everything from fresh fruit and smoothies to European style breakfast options with meats and cheeses and everything in between. Service was excellent and it was even offered to get a cup of coffee to go.

It is very efficient, clean, modern, lots of variety. They even have a kids buffet with M&M pancakes. the price is very steep. Over $60 for breakfast for 2 adults and 3 kids who ate very little. Would not recommend for those going to the water park as the kids are not interested in eating. Pack some bagels and cream... More

Overall we had a good experience, however biggest complaint would be the ages for children are 3+ I think they should increase that a bit because most 4-5 year olds don't eat enough to justify the $8 worth

Less than average food. We were charged more for the same number of people the second day. How does that happen?
