          Hello, Is there limitation on how many times you can eat in the resturants, are they all buffet or can you pick off the menu?. Is it ok to leave the hotel when not on an organised trip and is there places of intrest to visit?. I've been told it's a fabulous hotel but wondered what there is to do other than sunbath ha ha.

          You must be a Royal Service guest to receive beach waiter service. Other guests may use the beach (all beaches in Cuba are public) but will receive service.
