Food at the Majestic Colonial?

Recommended Posts

Hello to all Past Colonial Brides!!

How's the food at the different buffet/restaurants at the Majestic Colonial? I've heard mixed reviews. I'm getting married at the Colonial, 4 p.m. Gazebo wedding, May 21, 2011. I'm soo excited!! But I just want to be prepared if the food isn't that great.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciate :)

Thanks!

I thought the food was great!  I found that they had lots to choose from and the ala carte restaurants you don't need to make reservations at except for two of them.  Depending on the time of day...morning buffets offered crepes, bagels, sandwiches, toast, french toast, omelettes, eggs, yogurt, cereal, fruit, shakes, pastries, bacon....lunch buffets offered paninis, pizza, french fries, hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken burgers, calamari, rice, chicken, cheeses, fruit.  I didn't go to the buffets much at dinner time.....

Everyone in my group really enjoyed the food at the Majestic Colonial.  We ate at the buffet the first night and it was very good with lots of selection.  Our server Alfredo was awesome!  Someone told him that we were getting married and he brought the band over and the played for us and danced... it was so much fun.  Breakfast was also really good with tons of selection, as another bride above mentioned.

 

I didn't realize that the beachfront restaurant turned into two restaurants at night -- the Steakhouse (specializing in steak) and Tres Carabelas (specializing in seafood).  We ate there like 3 times I think, lol.  Tres Carabelas had this grilled lobster that everyone kept going back for.   And then we had our rehearsal dinner there and the staff let us order from either menu, so it was perfect.  I didn't get a chance to try all of the a la carte restaurants because we had the wedding also and our romantic dinner, but we did try the Mexican one and I thoroughly enjoyed the nachos and burrito.... mmmm.  Some friends tried the Japanese and said it was really good.

 

Of lesser fame (but great popularity!) was La Bodeguita -- this is the fast food joint located by the disco that served up french fries, onion rings and chicken wings late at night.  We ended up there a few nights after dancing it up at the disco.  What a blast!   Nothing beats some fast food and cerveza at 2am, haha.

 

Overall, we had a great time and the food was wonderful.  No idea about the Elegance, but I don't think you can eat there.

My mother and a group of her friends were at the Colonial last year. They found the food to be very good. I heard the Japanese is great and that the buffet is very good.

 

When I'm in the DR or Cuba I always try to remember that this is not Canada and you can't expect everything to taste the same or be prepared in the same way as "home."

I got married Jan/11 and 29 people from my group got sick from the resort's food. 1 was hospitalized for the last 3 days of our stay and 2 other guests needed antibiotic needles. It was pretty serious and many of our guests took 1-2 weeks to recover after returning home. Pepto and immodium did not help! I've heard of other large groups getting sick around that time as well so I know there has been concern about food prep/handling. I will say that there is plenty of food to choose from and you should be able to find something you like. I did however expect better food from the resort and I'm not a picky eater at all. In fact, I one of the few who didn't get sick. My hushand, however, was pretty sick immediately after our wedding. He lost 12 pounds during the trip!

 

Things you definitely should try- awesome hamburgers and paella by the beach.

 

Good luck and hopefully they fixed whatever the problem is.

That is so terrible that so many of your group were sick. Did you put in a complaint directly with the hotel manager? I think it is important that they know just how many visitors were sick and just how sick they were! Yikes, that is not good for business!!!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
