    L’atelier with chef Juan

    The food was fantastic, melts in your mouth, and the service is 11/10. The ambience is intimate, and the servers and chef make sure your experience is tailored to you. I got the French onion soup as a starter, and it was one of the best I’ve ever had

    Our night.

    Our Birthday dinner was french themed. The dishes were exquisite. Our server Alberto attended to each question we had while our chef Juan painted out plates to be both beautiful and delicious. There is no better option. Thank you. Meaningfully.

    Improvement from last year to this year. Staff is Great and all seem to be willing to help! Great value for the money.

    We have been pleased with our visit this year. There were some reviews that caused us concerns but when got here we found them not true. Air condition works great. Food choices are good. Staff is wonderful. We especially enjoy Andres at the pool bar, and Roberta and Candido at the buffet by the pool. We also enjoy working with Andrea at circle one desk and Andres is also wonderful in sales. We especially enjoy participating with the entertainment team all day long. Gustavo, Alex, Willie, Monse, and all the others.
