I especially enjoyed having lunch in the pool-side cafe--an icy cold margarita and guacamole, but of course. A swim-up pool bar is also an option.

Dinner in upscale La Casona is divine. It offers a familiar American menu and is where an expansive buffet and menu breakfast is served each morning. An all-inclusive package is available that includes upgrades, cocktails, spa services, upscale meals, and a round of golf at one of the nearby courses.
