Great food. The staff is extremely helpful. The views are amazing. No need to eat any where else. We stayed a week tried a few of the local restaurants and decided there was no need to eat anywhere else!

Great food and all the tables have incredible views of the ocean. You can choose to sit under a covered open air dining area or on the patio. Very small with great service.

The menu is not huge, but in our 6 day, 5 night stay we are all our breakfasts here, half our lunches, and most of our dinners as well. The menu is not huge, but plenty to keep you happy for a week. My wife and I are foodies and were very pleased -- so much so we didn't feel... More

Great place to grab a cheap beer and a bite, and watch the activities along the beach. Parasailing, jetski, surfboards, to name a few.

Every breakfast and dinner during my stay was consumed at this restaurant....and for good reason! I consider myself a foodie when it comes to quality food. This restaurant was beyond my expectations for the taste, fresh quality ingredients, preparation and presentation. I ate outside near the pool for most of my meals, where I could take in the view of... More

We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere of el mirador, it was a bit quieter than the lower restaurant but really nice to sit with the family. The service was amazing as always at this hotel and we got a funny show of a raccoon trying to get in the kitchen!

We descended to this delightful hideout and had a delightful evening meal. Many choices and none disappointed our little family. The dessert was also enjoyable. This is a reliable place with 5 start eats and prices.It was a celebratory dinner so we decided to take no chances as we had heard it was reliable.
