Review summary

Found buffet food and pizza/sandwiches if inferior quality. Dining room food was excellent. Casino bar friendly but other bar tenders were not. Did not like to serve you if you had Deluxe Drink package. Spa hairdresser was a snob n was upset I didn’t buy all the pro sects he set in front of me. I found him very rude

Variety and quality were not good at the buffet. Food didn’t look fresh or good. Sandwhiches had almost nothing inside them. Ate at dining room where food was excellent

Cafe Promenade

The guy who styled my daughters hair was rude and a snob! He insulted us with his comments several times and them was really upset when I didn’t buy the stack of products he set in front of me!
