Shows were way above average. Food was way below average. The ceviche was horrible, nothing like what it should have been. They were always running out of bacon on the buffet and never restocking. Never had lemons they for tea or fish. Soups, other than the potato, were terrible, especially the lobster bisque. The tea tasted old and the lemonade was like water. The only really good meal I had was the pork loin at dinner.
