A week of fine dining at Grand Residences

Chef Rafael Borbolla has plenty of tempting treats in store for you on your next visit. Enjoy gourmet cuisine a la carte and the theme nights during the week.

Start your day in paradise with breakfast in El Faro and a selection of fresh fruit, divine pastries and hot dishes. Lunch is equally delicious whether you choose a salad, pasta or a sandwich. For dinner, order fresh seafood, prime steaks and Mediterranean-inspired dishes.

If you are craving Mexican cuisine, you won’t want to miss Flor de Canela. A selection of dishes from all over the country, live music and premium tequilas make for an unforgettable evening. And on Taco Tuesday you’ll learn everything you need to know about the art of eating tacos.

In the mood for lunch on the beach? We’ve got it covered at Heaven Grill. Snack on shrimp tacos, seafood ceviche or a burger while you sink your toes in the sand and soak up the view. You won’t want to leave.

There’s afternoon tea on the Lobby Bar terrace to enjoy too, with fresh baked scones, cakes and sandwiches. And don’t miss the theme nights during the week. They range from the poolside BBQ on Sunday to Italian Night and Caribbean Night. Ask your Concierge for the schedule on arrival.

Sometimes all that you want after a day of snorkeling or sightseeing is a relaxing supper in your residence and when that is the case, order from the Room Service menu. For something special to celebrate a birthday or anniversary or a friends get-together, call in advance to arrange a private dinner prepared by the chef.


Want to try Mexican wines? Ask the Sommelier

It’s been a good year for Mexican wines. Several of its leading wine producers from the Valle de Guadalupe in Baja California and Parras, Coahuila, triumphed at the prestigious Concours Mondial de Bruxelles wine festival in Aigle, Switzerland. They came home with 39 medals, important industry accolades for wineries such as El Cielo and Casa Madero. Mexican wine is winning more and more acclaim and the number of wineries is on the rise. If you would like to sample some during your vacation, ask our Sommelier to recommend pairings for your menu choices.


Fresh from the bakery

All the bread served in our restaurants is now baked on site in a new oven in the bakery, ensuring maximum freshness and taste.



Have a Spa summer

Start the day with a relaxing massage on the beach or your terrace and indulge with a luxury facial or body wrap.

If you do overdo it in the sun remember that the Spa has the perfect soothing after-sun remedy to bring relief to irritated red skin.


Every picture tells a story

This month we are celebrating our seascapes, whether that is the palette of turquoise, blue and aquamarine you see when you hop on a boat or below the surface when you witness the rainbow colors of life on the coral reef.
