We booked our anniversary dinner at Captain’s Cove through our Concierge at the Royal Sands. We were not disappointed, the food and service was excellent and the sunset view as beautiful. They even surprised us with a 40th Anniversary pastry.

Extremely poor food. It was the only meal over our whole holiday that I can honestly say was inedible. I got a shrimp dish with Parmesan crust -it didn’t even look like shrimp. I genuinely couldn’t eat it. My boyfriend had a seafood pasta which...More
