As mentioned above, the main restaurant serves 3 meals a day, then we sometimes had lunch at La Frigata further away from the main pool area. We liked that one even better than the main restaurant for lunch.

In the evening you can go to different parts of town for dinner. Cabs are relatively inexpensive from the hotel. Hopefully you would be too tired in the evening for a long event!
