Food and drink prices at Marriott Frenchmans Reef

Hi

I know things are expensive but any ideas how much??

I know the breakfast buffet is $20 per adult and $10 per child but anyone know any of the other prices around the hotel?

Do they have other buffets for lunch and dinner at the hotel?

Is there any place to buy sodas and snacks at the hotel to keep in the room fridge?

Thanks for any other info on prices.

Thanks again

Jackie

There are 4 restaurants at the Reef and a n outdoor cafe next door at Frenchman's Cove. There's also a market on site where you can buy snacks and supplies. Everything is imported, and with the hotel markup -prices are high - just be prepared. A bag of bugles was $4.50. A large bottle of water was $5. Even at the grocery store a 1\2 gallon of orange juice ran $11. Higher than most places in the US, but not all.

A burger and fries at the Marriott runs about $14. A grilled cheese at the pool was $7. Most things on the lunch menu were under $15. Plus your drink. Portions are large. Dependent on which place you select for dinner, entrees can run $25-$40 (without drinks or salads etc) unless you go to the Havana club which is more. There is an Italian buffet they run one night at Windows for $35\person for an adult.

There are lots of other options to eat which can be reached by cab. Prices may be less than the Marriott at some local haunts. What you save on food, will likely get wiped out by the cab fare.:( Renting a car is likely most cost effective.

The good news is that rum is cheap here. A whole bottle is less than the price of a 12 pack of coke. It helps numb what you spend on food.:) Above all, just have fun!

Absolutely rent a car! Those hotel prices are ridiculous. The $250 you'll spend on a week's rental will afford you not only the opportunity to explore the island but to shop locally for much less expensive basics and eat out at a a huge variety of restaurants (also much less expensively.) Cheers!

RENT A CAR!!. We did for 10 days out of a 14 day trip and it was well worth it. There is a little grocery store just past the cruise ship terminal where you can get pop, water and other munchies for the room. The marketplace is a little pricey, but it does have some deli sandwiches and handmade pizzas these weren't too bad, and not that outrageously priced either.

My husband and I usually do the hotel breakfast buffets when we travel and this one was one of the best we have had. The fruit was fresh and the food delicious especially the omelette station. The only problem was they routinely screwed up our drink order or forgot our drinks altogether. it was easily fixed though.
