Lovely, modern restaurant. We had a romantic table for two on the little patio facing the beach. The floor is sand, so keep that in mind when choosing your shoes. The seafood was perfectly cooked, and I loved the Juicy margarita. I would’ve given 5 stars if I hadn’t found shards of shells in my appetizer. Staff were very pleasant and attentive, however, no discount was offered for the shells in my food that I nearly cracked my teeth on.
18% gratuity is added to the cheque. We left payment on the table and the server told us they don’t accept cash. Wait, what?! They accepted the cash because we didn’t bring our credit card as we were staying at a nearby resort.
Our visit here was during Spring break week for Canadians and the resort we were staying at was bustling and crowded. When we walked into the Vidanta Grand Mayan, we were amazed at how beautiful and modern the public areas are. But it was totally deserted! I just read the reviews and found out why. It’s a shame, because we were considering booking this resort for our next vacation based on what we saw. Guess we’ll keep looking!
