          Hi, my boyfriend and i will be staying at this hotel in early July. I am wondering whether you receive a menu of the A La Carte restaurants prior to booking? Simply because I am a fussy eater so would rather stick to the main buffet if i do not like the sound of the restaurants menu 🙂 Another question is did anyone go swimming with dolphins whilst staying at this hotel, if so who did you book with? Thank you
