Great place to go for Spanish style food. We had the Valencia Paella for two and it was delicious! We started with the fried calamari which was fantastic! They have a nice setting by a pool and we had a great view of the sunset. Great waiters. The only negative was a lot of feral cats wandering around the tables; if you are not a "cat lover" than you might not like this place.

Both the fried calamari and the Valencia paella were very salty. If our waiter would have come to our table more than twice (to take our order and to bring us our bill) we would have sent both back. Our food was delivered by a busboy who didn’t bring our bread until halfway through the paella. The manager stopped by our table to ask how everything was. We said that it was salty. He said “Oh, I’ll talk to the chef” and walked away, never to be seen again. Also, my wife is very allergic to cats and there were 3 kittens constantly at her feet begging for food. The busboy seemed concerned, when we told him of her allergy, but nothing was done.

The seating is outdoors by the ocean, which is nice, but we were given a table by the kitchen which was noisy and busy with waiters walking back and forth. Although our waiter was nice when he finally acknowledged us, overall the service was terrible. It took more than 15 minutes for anyone to bring us a menu. My husband had octopus which was overcooked and I had the chicken stew which was very salty. We were very disappointed with the food and the service.

We wanted to order the Valencia paella to share for 575 pesos. They wouldn't allow us to order it as there was a buffet and it was part of the buffet. The cost for that was 575 pesos per person. We ended up ordering something else to share which was a little disappointing.

Access from parking lot to restaurant was confusing and long. Restaurant was offering a buffet but had not informed of such on the website promoted they did offer us to offered from the regular menu, been informed. The food was not very well prepared, too much cheese on the crab ravioli: curried beef was not very flavorful: seafood paella was very over cooked.
The service was friendly but very unorganized busers not in sync with server or waiter.
The commute from the restaurant back to the taxi stand was about an hour as there were more passengers than there were carts for transport in all directions.
We would not recommend this restaurant especially for the price point.

Incredible setting. Tables and view spectacular. I expected a bit more showey Flamenco dancing. I thought the meal was a bit over priced.

The appetizers were great, but the main dish wasn't too impressive. The waiter was recommending it however al la carte would have been a better choice.

Everything was good, except my husband and I both ordered two appetizers instead of an entree. The server brought them both at the same time. We were finished eating before everyone else had been served their main course!

Go for the view and stay for the Paella.
The cold vegetable soup was puréed and I wouldn’t Personally recommend.
Also skip the Crab dish.

Our service was awful. We had to flag down the manager to get water. I was never asked if I wanted something from the bar. With a VIP card I should have gotten two free drinks. We weren’t the only ones very disappointed.

Four of us ate at Chiringuito. Three of the four thought the foods was good. The fourth was disappointed. The biggest problem was the service. It was by far the worst I’ve ever experienced. After ordering a bottle of wine we waited about 20-30 minutes for the wine to arrive. We then waited another 25 to 30 minutes for our entrée to arrive after placing our order. Same wait after requesting the check. Wouldn’t go back.

I had previously been about six years ago. When we came back to the resort it was a must to return because the food was so amazing before. This time it was just ok. Nothing amazing, but nothing bad. Ham croquettes were good. The Valencia paella was ok. Shrimp was overcooked and needed to be deveined. Paella was missing the classic crispy rice at the bottom. Probably won’t go back next time I’m on the resort.

The food was excellent, but service was poor. We had a terrible waiter who was very slow. The busboy was outstanding. The waiter did not understand how the dinner coupons worked, which led to unnecessary confusion. Dessert selection was just adequate.

Outdoor restaurant, by the pool which can be noisy. Food was good, not amazing. Sangria was good, one serving is essentially 2 glassfuls.

Most of what we ordered - and we tried many different dishes - were OK but only a few items felt like they were truly Spanish. The sardines we a standout but the rest of the seafood was not that fresh or tasty. The meal was just average unfortunately.

The table service was excellent , as it is at all Vidanta restaurants. Our steaks were good but not exceptional. My wife had dined here six months ago and raves about her filet but not this visit. The salads and appetizers were excellent. Sides were pricey for the serving size. She thought the serving size was smaller than her previous visit. Many it was an off night for them. But the view from the top of the Residence Tower is wonderful.
