Waiter Roberto was the best. Great place to enjoy the sunset. Interesting to not that some of the meals that were also found in other resort restaurants were more expensive here.

The Pool Grill itself was undergoing renovations during our stay but the full menu was available at the pool or at the pool bar. There was ample seating around the pool. Typically bar-food, but excellent quality and service

Chef very accommodating especially with my severe allergy restrictions! I was unable to eat several meals and the chef created a specialty dish when I was willing to settle for less. He made something special just for me and wowed me with the flavor. Great...More

The sea bass lettuce wraps were excellent, one of our favorite things at the JW. Other items were good, but not as stand-out as the wraps. The service was great and staff was friendly. The grill is located near the far end of the pool...More

We visited this restaurant twice for lunch. The portions were very generous and enough to split between two people. Although the food was a little heavy, the cold drinks, great service, and lovely view make it 4 star worthy! Loved the lime-spiked michelada beer drink.

The waiter and staff could not be nicer. We enjoyed our meals there a great deal. The view of the pool is lovely too.

They serve you 2 for one white or red sangria while in the pool watching the sunset. Needless to say we took FULL advantage of this a couple evenings. The Sea Bass wraps are amazing too. Nice touch JW.

Food was ok for a pool side lunch. The staff was not as friendly as most of our other experiences in Costa Rica.
