The dinning experience includes a private beach as well as all drinks. One can expect an amazing buffet and one of the best Uruguayan style bbq.

cons - they seem to be reducing the alcohol content in the drinks, and the availability of the best food. there was 1 merluza for about 70 people!! pros - the location and atmosphere are still unbeatable.
