We ate almost every meal here since we stayed at hotel. There was no reason to go anywhere else, it was great! Great Hamburgers (if you have kiddos).

It's from 4-6pm. But it does not include beer or all mixed drinks, cocktails. The drinks are reasonably priced for a resort bar. I think that their pina coladas and strawberry margeritas were around $6. - same with other... More
