Tips for the Caribe and Horizon Court:
Casual attire is fine, but bare feet and swim suits are not permitted.
The Horizon Court restaurant receives positive reviews, but bear in mind this is buffet rather than gourmet fare. Not everyone enjoys a pre-made sandwich.
Horizon Court can become quite busy during peak hours (breakfast and lunch), and we suggest the main dining room if more serene surroundings appeal to you.
