Not great food and high prices. Wonderful staff though! Only get food here if you're hanging out at the pool.

Lava's is a fun place to order drinks from if you are staying at the Sheraton and sunbathing by the pool. The food was below average and overpriced. The staff were attentive and fairly friendly. If you are not sitting around the pool enjoying the sun, I highly recommend going elsewhere for drinks and lunch, as inside the restaraunt does not have great views or anything.

Chicken wings were bland and more than $1/each, you are paying for the location even though the majority of tables can't see the ocean due to a high wall between the restaurant and the sea.

Drinks are good, but good food is just a few blocks away and it will be cheaper. The worst food we had on our trip was here and we tried it twice! They even managed to make crappy hummus (it was like soup? I think it had been frozen?). Drink here . . . Eat off property.

Enjoyed the drinks and food. Unfortunatley the hours were reduced in September and not open in the evening. We always enjoyed a drink and snack to watch sunset. Understand they are reviving the hours and that may change.
