Jackets required?

Sorry if this has already been asked.

Are jackets required at the a la cartes at the Gran Bahia Principe? Or are button down/polo shirts ok? What about sandals for men?

Jackets are not required. Golf type shirts are all that is needed. I even seen people with long sleeve t-shirts allowed, it just the long pants that are required for men. I have seen sandals allowed as well. Closed toe sandals.

Ladies can pretty well wear anything they want as per anywhere. The only thing women can not wear is a bikini top at the buffets or a la cartes.

I was trying to get the point across (and failed) that men should not wear flip flops to the a la cartes.

Thank you! I'm sure my husband won't be wearing his sandals to the airport, given that winter has arrived in WI, so he'll likely have another pair of shoes with, but just wanted to make sure we knew what to expect when we got there.

I'm glad jackets aren't required. I had this fear that we'd arrive to dinner and they'd offer him a jacket from their collection or something, likely two sizes too small. I'm picturing that Chris Farley routine...

Any type of nice leather sandals are accepted for men in the ala cartes as my hubby and brothers in law have worn them and been allowed (Skier is right, no flip flops). It's the long pants that are an absolute must.
