Can't beat the view!

Overall, I found this restaurant to be average. I would give it 3.5 stars if it allowed. The drinks and service were excellent, but my wife and I found the food to be just average. I found the prices to be reasonable for a resort. We visited during dinner service at sunset. That alone is worth the... read more

Great location with friendly service and great food and drinks. The frozen mojitos are amazing as are the chicken quesadillas, the nachos and the French fries supreme. All great. When we stay at the IC we eat here every day.

The food is very good. The service is great. What's not to like about sitting on the beach having lunch and a pina colada? I had dinner there one night and was not as impressed. It is a bit expensive, but the location makes it worth it.

This place is exactly what it sets out to be. A great place to have lunch and a drink on the beach. Great views and friendly people. We came here twice, had decent food and cold drinks.

Ciao isn't the greatest place, and the food isn't anything spectacular. The drinks are good but nothing amazing. Still, there are definitely perks to this place... 1. It's right near the Intercontinental pool, and right on the beach. The prices are actually a little better than the pool bar, and they have waitstaff who will serve you right on the... More
