Was on the island for business and hosted 2 great dinners at resort. The Grotto and the steak house were fantastic. Great staff, outstanding service. The Grotto serves Italian, but a few in our party wanted a steak. NP, waiter grabbed a menu from the Steakhouse, provided options and had the waitstaff deliver a perfect steak. My clients were thrilled.
