Excellent brunch (food, fruits, omelette, paella and service). Since you enter the customer service is incredible, food quality and ocean view gave you the right spot you deserve to enjoy with the family. Don’t forget the coffee!

Had breakfasts, lunch and Sunday brunch at the Ola Bistro and the experience each time was excellent. Food tasted fresh and good and service staff was attentive. Price point is way beyond budget. Inside, poolside or oceanside,the Bistro offers a lovely ambient place to eat.
