Our first cease was at Bites, a tapas restaurant with scrumptious appetizers, seafood and drinks. We arrived on the lodge earlier than our room was prepared, so after leaving our luggage on the entrance desk, we have been escorted there for lunch. It was an effective way to start our time on the resort. We had contemporary guacamole and chips and shrimp ceviche. The margarita was made with freshly squeezed limes — no premade mixes right here. We particularly loved our lunch right here, in addition to the internationally influenced breakfast we had at Spoon.
Once more, the dimensions of the resort got here into play at breakfast when there wasn’t a line for the omelet station on the buffet. The servers have been additionally very attentive and we had espresso and contemporary orange juice ready for us after we got here again from getting our meals.
We dined on the Italian restaurant Spumante as soon as throughout our keep and I used to be pleasantly stunned by how contemporary and scrumptious our meal was.
