Our stay at Hilton includes a complimentary breakfast buffet at Iguana Cafe. The restaurant provides both Western and New Mexican breakfast items such as typical scrambled eggs, sausages links, bacon, cereals with milk, fruit selection, oat meals, bakeries and pastries. The most interesting is Enchilada...More

If you are like me, perhaps you like your meat rare, very rare. When I said that, the server said, oh, would you like it black and blue. I was impressed that she knew the term and was happy that I'd likely get what I...More

I loved the location. I loved their Breakfast Enchiladas, something I had never had before. Buffet was overpriced for selection they had. $17.00 per person for a limited choice of Scrambled Eggs, Breakfast Potatoes, Breakfast Enchiladas, Bacon or Sausage, assorted pastries and an omelet bar....More

Didn't want a fancy meal, so decided to get a bite to eat at the cafe. Great variety of tasty margaritas. The menu does not offer a lot of options, but what we had was tasty (fish tacos and cheese enchiladas) and most reasonably priced.

Delicious breakfast! $17 for a hotel buffet is a good deal and it includes coffee and juice, an omelet bar, and buffet items more unique like breakfast enchiladas, green chili, and other fares in addition to those typical of a buffet.

Breakfast buffet is average for a hotel but the made to order omlets are good. The price is high for what you get at $17.00 per person plus tax and tip, however. At night the food is okay but again nothing special and the drinks...More

I have been to the Iguana restaurant before. But recently they changed the chef & The tortilla soup is half the size and $4 more for cost. The Caldo de mer is not worth the procr at all. Four medium sized shrimp, 6 very small...More
