We ate breakfast here several times. It’s nice because it’s smaller and less busy than Tides buffet. The restaurant is exclusive for guests staying in ocean wing.

Wasn’t sure what to expect for an Italian restaurant in the Philippines, but was pleasantly surprised when the bread came out with a small dish of olive oil and balsamic vinegar as it should. Then came the spaghetti bolognese, nicely presented, hot to the table,...More
