Does the stay include free breakfast?
Breakfast is served in the beautiful rooftop deck. Depending on the booking you made, a free breakfast is included, but with others it is not. I’ve seen comments about the food; it’s excellent Mexican fare! If you’re anticipating an IHOP style American breakfast then you should probably pack some breakfast bars in your luggage.

Sorry for late reply, no room didn't, but had a cold machine at end of hall where you can get free water bottles. I'm sure the staff will help in any way they can
