They had a nice buffet consisting of pumpkin soup and various salads for starters. There also was turkey, stuffing, fish (which was amazing), rice and beans, plantains (yum) and other items. Dessert was included and this year they... More

Was staying at Royal Palm. The location and convenience of this restaurant right on the beach should make it a huge hit with travelers. However the service we received this year was unacceptable and we were very disappointed. The staff tried very hard to apologize for whatever shortfalls that existed during our week. After two days of poor service, long... More

The Cabana restaurant serves a really good variety of food at reasonable prices. Handy to pop in when sunning on the beach. Friendly staff also.

We ate lunch and really enjoyed the food here. Service was good - they quite attentive. Being poolside was an added benefit.

So we tried it again, my husband made an order at the bar. While he was waiting for his food . I went across the street to... More

Beside realizing that all the food is frozen and nothing is truly "FRESH" I must make a compliant about this establishment! 1.) The service - beside waiting at my table for 10mins before the only server on the floor could address my table. We were welcomed with a sorry attitude and a rushing nature! Now you would think that since... More
