We went off the resort to the West View restaurant. It is on the West side of the island ( go figure! ) by "the aquarium" a good spot to go snorkeling.
The restaurant is not especially fancy, you sit on tables outside but covered by a roof. Typical local food, not a real tourist spot. We took cabs from the Marazul to go there.
We really enjoyed it, something different from the A.I. stuff.
