“Fabulous view and food was good, too.”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had the little shredded meat appetizers, like a Caribbean dish called ropa vieja, which was very good. Also the seafood salad in a formed "dish" sort of like what a taco salad comes in, also very good. Expensive, but what the heck, you're on Vacay.

The service was amazingly slow and the food was below average. The only good thing about it was the outdoor seating near the pool. Our kids were at the dive-in movie for a portion of the time. I wouldn't really call the pizza pizza. It was more like cheese on a cracker.

Have eaten there three times, two times were great, once was disappointing. The fried cheese appetizer is outstanding as is the beef in plantain cups appetizer. However, the waiter recommended the Cubano sandwich which was probably the worst Cubano sandwich ever, BBQ pork with digonaise with no pickles was arguably the least authentic Cubano I've ever had, simple horrible.

“Pizza was mediocre at best.”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We were staying at the El Conquistador as a treat for our honeymoon. We only at at the hotel a couple times before we learned our lesson about the food quality - it's terrible. We came to Bella Vista after our Biobay tour. It was one of only a few places open so late, and we had only had a slice each of Digiorno pizza from a street vendor for a quick meal before kayaking for hours, so we were hungry. I have to say, the service was terrible for us being on of only a handful of people there. We were pretty well ignored for quite a while before we had to find someone to take our order. The pizza was bland flatbread pizza, with not enough going on to make it worth $12-16 each. It just wasn't good enough for how hyped it is. Definitely should have left the resort for a late dinner out had I known better at the time.
