I think I heard somewhere that they are not doing a la carte dining at the new beach bar due to noise concerns for the ocean view rooms close by ???
Pretty silly if you ask me : It’s not like people eat dinner at 11 at night, plus it’s the kind of ambience that would be appealing to couples for romantic dinners.
I really hope that what I heard is wrong, it would be sad to lose the opportunity to dine outdoors to the sound of the waves on the reef once again, it really was a lovely experience back when they still used to have El Ranchon as a seafood a la carte.[/quote]
When we first visited Breezes eons ago, they did use the beach bar in the evening as the venue for a seafood a la carte. I’m sure you remember that too karmadoc. Waaay back in 2000 & 2001!
The issue is perhaps not so much with noise disturbing the oceanview rooms but rather the logistics of an a la carte restaurant at the beach bar, especially during certain times of the year when it’s windy or raining in the evening. Where would you set up an alternate location in case of inclement weather?- or do you just cancel guests’ a la carte dinner reservations on very short notice?
I think that Breezes management is being wise not to offer a third a la carte restaurant at the beach bar in the evening. At least that way, they won’t run the risk of guest diappointment= complaints=negative reviews. We all know how much people complain when something they thought they were supposed to get as part of the all-inclusive package doesn’t materialize :-X
