Host station had a jar of candy, only it was empty besides one piece of candy that was out of the wrapper. They seemed embarrassed when I asked what it was and took it away.

The menu items were pretty standard, but good. I recommend sticking with ordering regular breakfast items on the menu as the buffet is overpriced at $22 and doesn't have much of a selection in comparison to other Tucson resorts.

Overlooking the pool and the mountains this is a great space to begin your day. Also adjacent is a carry-out if your in a hurry. Typical offerings with a few tweaks.

The brunch BBQ, with a multitude of meats, down-home cooking and a vast dessert bar is incredible. Comes with champagne and great hospitality. Expensive but never disappointed!

We had lunch outside. Great steak taco salad! Fresh and delicious. Service was good. Was much better than I had anticipated for a poolside cafe!
