All together the other reviews tell the story.
The food is different than Canada.
Answer is to eat the food you like and leave the rest.
My compliments to the baker - the dinner rolls and cookies were great every day.
Spagetti was fine as was the chicken and fish stick things.
Chicken was pretty good too but I thought the beef dishes tasted a bit off - my friend gobbled them up though so it all depends on your own taste.
Salad and fruit were good too.
Eggs were fine for breakfast and hard boiled could be stashed away for evening or excursions - find a container if you are putting them in your pocket!
Filtered water was available from the machine to drink with your meals and to fill your water bottle for the day.
The free bar offerd rum and has beer and cola and fanta orange unlimited.
The A la Carte restaurant has a great fish dish in lemon sauce.
Book a meal there for sure!
Staff were really great - count on a language barrier - esp on the night shift.
Go on the snorkel trip from the beach - David is a great guide for a day trip and probably any one else would be too.
The bus comes every day for 5 pesos you ride all day downtown and back - check the times with your tour person or the front desk.
Check with the tour person for excusions as well as the cuba tour person in the lobby.
Plan on not golfing for $150 a loop - the course is nice but not special.
Learn all the spanish you can and print out common phrases for your pocket.
Go to the caves.
Roller blades were great to have downtown but its 10 km to get there.
5 - 8 pesos in the cab - have the front desk call the cab so you get an honest meter.
Walk over the the little store 50 yards from the door and to the restaurante just past the tennis courts.
Pizza at the MArina or downtown at the mall.
I could go on and on and I could go back again right away if I could another last minute deal.
