The only things that they would switch up was either the salad, soup or dessert. They never changed the main entree. Which is good bc then I would have thrown a fit.
However, they do a good job of presentation and most of the switches were yummy.
My whole party is partial to lamb chops - so we tested them out on our romantic dinner and they were fantastic. In my opinion way better than the beef filet. But if you have picky eaters - lamb may not be the best choice. My Dad enjoyed the lamb so much there at our parents dinner that he ordered lamb almost the whole time there.
I will say the food at Gran Porto is no bueno at all. I felt bad for all my guests staying with their families there. Everyone that stayed over there said the food was horrible and the rooms were not nice. Understandable you have children there but it's not their fault they have kids.
The food at Albatros was not good at all. In fact I was pretty upset at the quality. We held our welcome dinner there and they really messed up the food. Everyone kept saying it was fine bc they didn't want me to be upset and go off on anyone.
The food at Maries was a little bit better but not much. We met some families there for dinner one night.
So if all your guests are staying at The Royal then they should have a great time.
Our favorite place for breakfast was Meditereano (sp?). Love their breakfasts. I ate a ton of fresh fruit, scrambled eggs with refried beans.
For lunch we liked Spice. They had yummy guacamole and a huge seafood bar. I will say what surprised me the most is that everything is cooked and cooked well done. I wasn't used to cooked smoked salmon but I'd rather they do that and not get food poisoning.
Asiana's was ok. Not my favorite place but we held our Rehearsal dinner there. We actually paid for the rehearsal dinner services - so the food was not Asiana's menu but the actual banquet menus. It was a huge improvement from our Welcome Dinner at Albatros - in which we paid for that service too.
Maria Maries was good but not exceptional. You can probable find a better steakhouse in your hometown but the attention to detail and service from the wait staff more than makes up for it. Presentation was always beautiful. Ask the waitstaff what their favorite is bc generally that tasted the best than deciding on our own.
Even though it was all inclusive - we tipped everyone. They work hard to provide such an amazing experience that we felt they deserved it.

There are a few review on La Luna on this forum, so far..every bride who used them waved about them.
