The cuisine was absolutely divine, and the service was perfect! We dined on the terrace in such tranquility. It was the perfect meal in a lovely setting, and a dining experience we won't forget.

Amaya is in a crisis. The revised menu is low class. The glasses is from Pier 1. No one is focused. Orders are mistaken. Sadly, the hotel now has no restaurant. Light Olive Garden, just no unlimited bread.

While the resort is lovely and we've had a wonderful 7 days here thus far, we were shocked as to how bad the food was here given the previous positive reviews. We had dinner with one other family and the food was terrible. No taste,...More
