We ordered the fresh catch of the day and were happy with our choice. The chef of the restaurant personally delivered the meal to us and it was very good. The restaurant wasn't crowded and easily afforded a view of the ocean, stars and moon....More

Enjoyed happy hour at Lava's a few days in a row. The Lava flow and the Pina Colada were great. The bar staff was great and helpful.

If you expect a very casual beach/pool side bar that you can walk into in your bathing suit and bare feet you won't go wrong. It often surprises me when staff appear to care in places like this as they probably see ssssooooo many tourists....More

Great food by the pool or sitting inside the open air eatery. The food we had was great. The morning buffet was a little pricy without anything spectacular. I would skip it and go off property for a breakfast burrito!
