The service was impeccable at all times each time we visited for breakfast and dinner three times. I would compare it to a five star, but that... More

The staff at this the Congo restaurant are amazing. The food was good but the staff made it great. We were met with a smile. After the first day, the staff knew our names and preferred drinks.

The burger, offered on the lunch menu, is the biggest and best I've ever had. Service is top-notch. All meals were fresh and well prepared.

We only ate breakfast at the Congo but spent several nights at the bar and found Derek to be very charming and made us feel like we were the only guests! He went out of his way to make our stay very enjoyable. Ask for Derek when you arrive!

After our horrendous treatment and experience at Buru Resturante, we walked across the street and found this Restuarant at this hotel. They were lovely and inviting. We had breakfast here. It was very good with omelet a made to order, friendly service, good food, inviting atmosphere. Please spend your money here. Do not go to Buru where they discriminate

My sister and I recently stayed at the San Bada hotel for 8 nights, and wow we couldn't have picked a better place! The restaurant supplied a great atmosphere- there were outside tables and inside tables- and the wait staff was impeccable! We absolutely loved the bar tender, Silvia, who was amazingly sweet! Also, Derek, Maykel, Jorge and everyone else... More
