the place, where you can realx from daily heat and stay next to see. Very nice stuff (bit innocent, but learning fast). Good for families, too.

Ate there during our stay at the Hilton Resort & Sp. If you are an All-in guest, you get a reasonable discount per person. The offer is quite rich. Had a own kids menu in addition to a very tasteful menu reaching all varieties of Brazilian culinary. Another thing worth to mention is probably the 'live music' which is well... More

Pura Vida is a Brazilian themed restaurant with terrific views and a choice of inside or outside dining. The signature dish is a classic Brazilian Churrasco - a seemingly endless supply of barbecued meats including pork, lamb, chicken, but mainly beef. From memory, we had 7 different cuts of beef and it was all amazing. If you ar on all... More

The restaurant is based on the Brazilian meat restaurant theme- meat, meat and more meat. We were served by Nikhil who to be honest is probably one of the best host you could wish to meet and sets the standard for others to follow. The food was fantastic and plentiful. Would defiantly eat there again

Throughly recommend this restaurant, the meat was cooked to perfection and the pineapple lovely! Despite previous reviews we enjoyed the entertainment, best of all though is the service - thank you Nikhil and Les - could not asked to have been looked after by more attentive and genuinely really pleasant people! Thank you!

We opted out of terrible buffet in the hotel, though we paid for half board to eat some normal food and did not get dissapointed. Excellent food, very good service and attentive staff. Thanks for a nice meal

Have eaten here on a number of occasions when we have stayed at the hilton at least a couple of times each visit but not this time until the singers go we won't be back. The food is amazing a shame we only got to eat there once.

If you like meat this is for you. They cook all meat at an outside grill and you have a tast of over 15 different types of cut meats with a large range of chicken, beef, lamb and lots more. The staff are great too.
