There is no lounge bar at the resort and only 2 restaurants which don't change their menus. The second restaurant was closed for a couple of nights to host conferences but hotel guests were not told this in advance. We'd eaten in the main restaurant for 3 nights then wanted to book the other and were told at the time of booking that it would be closed for the next 2 nights.
