Where to Eat

Beach Club

Nestled, adjacent to the property’s pools and overlooking the beautiful Revolcadero Beach, this popular venue offers fresh sea food, served directly from the sea to your table. Cocktails and aperitifs can be enjoyed under the terraced palapa in our bar while watching vivid sunsets. Resort casual dress code in effect.

Café et Chocolat

Café et Chocolat is for those dedicated to the very best the world of coffee has to offer, to the art of espresso, and for those who passionately crave all that is chocolate.

Whether we are talking about dark chocolate or milk chocolate, and whether it winds up as a cake, a cookie, a brownie, ice cream, or as a drink, cacao, which has been cultivated for at least three millennia in Mexico, drives a passion that extends way beyond its flavor aspects and ventures into the psychological realm.

This gathering place in the morning, afternoon or evening is the perfect venue to savor breakfast delights, classic sandwiches and fresh salads.

Chula Vista

Chula Vista, located beside the Azteca salt-water lagoon, boasts Mexican fare in a decidedly informal and al fresco setting. The cuisine is authentic, flavorful and accessible to all.

Enjoy your “Journey through Mexico” where we feature an extensive selection of typical food from a different State of our Mexican Republic every night. Breakfast is extensive in its offerings and a great way to start the day.


Tavola embraces the diverse regions of the Italian peninsula. Its cuisine is an expression of the past and present, in which traditional dishes are prepared respecting their origin, yet creatively presented within the framework of a seasonally fresh and more contemporary culinary interpretation.

The floor to ceiling glass windows provide spectacular views of the lush tropical surroundings and of the Pacific.

The interior has been recently transformed to include a Wine Wall and Library, an exclusive and diverse collection of Grappa, and its entrance is graced with the Chef’s very own Organic Herb Garden.

“A Tavola Non Si Invecchia Mai” At The Table No One Ages

All the paintings and sculptures exhibited in Tavola are for sale. You will find in our brochures presenting each work, all the explanations necessary about them.

Posadita Steak & Seafood

Posadita Steak & Seafood Restaurant is located off the lobby in our Pearl Tower with amazing views of Revolcadero beach and the Pacific Ocean on one side, with a beautiful waterfall on the other. The perfect place for casual dining with friends and family after a long day on the beach or golf course.¨

Posadita has comfortable setting with live music where our forte is “comfort food”. In this open air venue we feature the best US and Sonoran Beef as well as seafood from Mexico’s Pacific coast, served sizzling hot from our open wood burning grill. Also, enjoy our exceptionally fresh salads from our extra large salad bar and a dessert menu filled with great home style desserts.
