A chef will be announced
The ideas listed are only examples of the extensive and varied menu. It is equally important to mention that the chef is able to offer special diets.
Start the day in Paradise savoring freshly baked scones, eggs benedict, or fruit-filled crepes. While you dine, sit on the deck, and watch the gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea, and enjoy a gentle ocean breeze.
After a morning spent with wonderful water activities, the family will appreciate Caribbean fish tacos, vegetable kabobs, or grilled panini.
In the evening, while relishing the gorgeous sunset you might agree that the Sunset Beach BBQ is a family favorite. Mouthwatering pineapple glazed pork tenderloin, coconut prawns, stuffed Caribbean lobster, and several enticing side dishes make this menu item very appealing.
