This restaurant was at our resort. Its focus is seafood, which sadly it did not do very well. My husband was disappointed both time we ate their (dinner and lunch). Dry and little flavor. My food was ok, but nothing special.

We ate at the Blue Marlin everyday for lunch. We always asked for a table by the water overlooking the ocean. Unbelievable view! The Fried calamari, steak, lobster, fried fish and mahi-mahi were all very good!!

Seafood Paella is huge and delicious! View is amazing and relaxing. You’re right out in front of the water. Dinner food wasn’t as hot temperature wise but we gave it another shot for lunch a couple days later. I’m convinced that this is there best...More
