The food was very disappointing. The atmosphere of the restaurant is pretty and gives a feeling of luxury, and the staff is very attentive. We ate indoors, but a strong wind kept blowing the tablecloth up over the table, but our waiter was very sweet and kept coming back to flip it back down. Their meat selections were pretty good, but they just don't seem big on veggie dishes. My husband and I enjoy good, fresh vegetables, but there were none to be found!

It's so-so in terms of variety. The desserts were good, but the food occasionally seemed a little dried out. It's a pretty place but not very exciting. Try eating off the property, where there are better prices and more variety.

We did not realize that we had daily maid service in our room, and our refrigerator was not working, so we left the food outside on the table since the air conditioner kept our room cooler than the refrigerator did our food. Unfortunately, the maids tossed our leftovers. We managed to eat a decent portion, though. Both our meals combined cost us about $200 MXN, which is about $20 USD.
The café has a breakfast buffet from 7am - 12 noon, but we are not fans of buffets since we are not able to eat a lot at one sitting. Every night there is a theme that is announced on posters all around the resort. On Mondays there is Lunada, or Moon Night. There is fire dancing and other performances while you eat a dinner buffet. On Thursdays they have a Fiesta Mexicana where you can watch mariachis, folklórico, Papantla flyers, dancing horses, rope wheelers, and fireworks while you eat a dinner buffet. Tickets for these events were sold by a woman named Felipa who usually sells helados y paletas (ice cream and popsicles) by the pool. Lunada is about $25, while the Fiesta Mexicana is $50. If you purchase them together, you can buy both for $50 USD.
We decided not to do it since we do not like buffets, and we can watch the same sort of thing back home in LA. One thing you can always find in East LA is a band of mariachis or folkloric dancing.
