Food and Dining

The main dining room was just fantastic! Our waiters, Franklin and Washington went out of their way to please us! To explain further, they brought extra appetizers even though no one ordered them. The buffet was good as well. Highly recommend Sorrento's pizza.

Amazing selection of beers, although they should carry beers from the islands we visited. Those island beers were quite smooth.
