We have stayed at this beautiful beachfront hotel several times and enjoy the grounds, infinity pool, deli and pool side restaurant. We had dinner at La Estancia Restaurant and what a stark difference from our dinner experience of the night before! The food was so delicious, so creative and yet traditional Mexican. We could have eaten our way through the... More

We only ate here for breakfast on our last day. This restaurant wasn't open until the last 4 days of our stay. I believe it only opened at all because there was a large influx of Mexican nationals that checked in for the Independence Day celebration on September 15th. The breakfast was okay. Nothing special. We didn't get the buffet... More

This restaurant was only open for breakfast during our stay (end of Oct first part of Nov). Great buffet breakfast with a Mexican flair and if you order off the menu the food is very good and quick. Good staff. Would recommend.

La Estancia has a wonderful breakfast/brunch buffet. The different food stations offer a variety of authentic dishes, pastries, made to order omelettes and freshly made chilaquiles. I also felt like I was at an organically wonderful juice bar too. They offer a number of fruit and veggie smoothie like drinks which make you feel less guilty after indulging in other... More

Amazing food, nice choices and they kindly accomodated my daughter's needs. Roberto, one of the waiters was superb and even left a note for the morning crew to make a note about my daughter dietary needs. When we arrived for breakfast, they knew who we were and treated us with lots of attention. Love the hospitality of Mexico!!
