playa blanca restaurants

haven't been back to this hotel in sometime and are planning a return visit in march (hurray!!) Can't remember where the ala carte restaurants are and what they are like. i believe the ranchon was one location? Any reminders would be appreciated. Also read something about a repeat guest dinner?

Hey Skooter,

Ranchon overlooking the beach was rebuilt 2 years ago. Great service and a lovely sea breeze. Opalino to the right of the pools as you come from the lobby, nice and big. The repeat Guest dinner can be held at either or both depending on how many there are. Surf and or Turf are usual featuring skewered shrimp, lobster tails and steak with all the fixings and a fancy dessert.

Both restaurants double as lunch spots with the Ranchon more sit down and the Opalino, part buffet. You will recall the indoor buffet is still there and air conditioned for breakfast and supper.

ahh yes, it is all coming back now.... why do we wait so long between visits. Thanks for the memory jog. We remember the wonderful cappuccino at the Ranchon. Was it rebuilt on the same spot?

Yes indeed. Same spot, a bit bigger and taller.

My morning favourite is the espresso at the Daquiri bar. It's got to be the best anywhere.

When do you go?

Good idea to have your Travel Agent put it on your reservation.

Send Playa Blanca an email 2 weeks before and let them know what room you'd prefer and that you are a "Repeat Guest"

email is:
