    We made a reaervation on Open Table for 530 pm EST. We incurred the expense of an Uber from our hotel and when we got to the El San Juan Hotel, noone on staff could point us in the direction of this resaturant And when we finally found it on the property, it was closed !!! As was EVERY SINGLE RESTUARANT on the property except the most expensive steaknhouse We wound up incurring the extraordinary Expense of that restaurant because by the time we figured out that the beach club was closed, everybody was starving. But it was outrageously priced and not what we were looking for Very very very very disappointing How could OpenTable be arranging reservations for a restaurant that isn't even open. The expense we incurred you getting there, and then eating at the other restaurant, was outrageous and unacceptable.

    They don’t allow you in the pool if dining at the restaurant which is ridiculous… they make you spend $500 for a cabana to get in the pool if not a guest

    Everything was great except the description on open table It indicates this is a brunch when in fact it is a lunch and does not begin serving until 12 not as mentioned here ….we were able to book at 11 In spite of the misleading info the servers were great and accommodating and actually served us earlier than their start time. Food was ok Did enjoy the truffle fries and the avacado on califlower crust

    The menu listed for the Beach Club was incorrect. Very limited and not appropriate for a Sunday brunch with friends. No listing was found for other restaurant on site, Caña. Spoke with server who said we could just go to Caña and get a table. She was unable to call over, so we had to walk over and find a hostess. Once we found one, we were told to wait outside for 20 minutes and then would be seated. Our reservation at the Beach Club meant nothing, despite being the same hotel. Frustrating. We got to the table and our server was very nice - all good there. There is a fish stir-fry listed in the menu. It's what 3 of us ordered. No stir-fry - it really should be listed as a fish-and-chips. Overall, mediocre experience; not what one expects from El San Juan Hotel.

    Visited for a birthday brunch. I was unaware before booking the Mimosas were overly expensive ($17) per glass and with half empty pours. The food quality was poor for the prices and the waiter messed up our bill. It’s took over 1 hour to pay tab tab… management eventually comp’ed $200 off our $800+ tab. It was a absolute HORRIBLE experience… but the scenery is nice 👍🏽

    Most disappointing experience ever at a Fairmont property. To start off, we had a reservation and none of the staff at the resort could even tell us where to go for our reservation! We finally found where we were supposed to be, although there was no hostess to seat us so e just seated ourselves and proceeded to wait forever for a server to greet us so we had to go to the bar and ask to have a server sent to our table. Then we placed our order and after an hour and a half with being served I got up again and found a someone who looked like a manager and he explained that they realized that the computer system was not sending orders through to the kitchen, so after an hour and a half our order was never even seen! They tried to rectify the situation and finally brought our food, which actually was quite delicious, but at that point didn't really matter! Manager ended up comping out meal, which we appreciated, but the entire experience was horrendously frustrating and extremely disappointing for a Fairmont property. Don't waste your time. I should have listened to the other bad reviews!

    Had to complain multiple times about server not coming to table, long wait for everything, drinks were sitting on the bar for a while till we asked could we get them. Overall, I would not recommend and should've listened to the server when she suggested going to the other restaurants.

    Service was horrible, ambience isn’t great; although it’s beachside, you don’t even see the beach in most of the seating. The food was nothing special, but it was priced as a 5 star restaurant. Won’t be back.

    Initially the waitress took care of us right away, but it took 45 mins to an hour for us to get the food. The food itself wasn’t all that for the price that we paid for it. It took awhile for us to get the bill. Overall, poor customer service. There is not enough staff, and the prices were not reasonable for the food that we got.

    The place that I reserved kept telling me that I was at the wrong place. Sent me to another side of the resort, just for me to RETURN back to them and they try to sit me like nothing happened. I booked for breakfast and when I got to my reservation ON TIME they told me breakfast was over. Why did you allow me to book breakfast at this time if it was done?????? Customer service was yeah. Food over priced, and I do not recommend.

    We stopped by the El San Juan during a family vacation for dinner by the ocean. We couldn’t have picked a better spot. The food was outstanding and the portions were generous. There was a live band playing (a rarity during Covid) that really added to the ambiance. The beverages were a bit pricey, but they were expertly crafted. Overall, we had an outstanding experience and would definitely visit again.

    This place had an awesome atmosphere but the food was not good. Also, a shot cost $22 a piece. We were shocked. A little seasoning can go a long way. I got the grilled chicken sandwich, and had to send it back all to get some churassaco tacos that were bland. Not worth the $27.

    We arrived on time for our reservation but no one was at the reception. We approached a waiter passing by and they said to wait at the reception for the host. In the meantime, we saw other hotel guests just entering the dining area and taking seats and ordering at the bar. We asked another waiter passing by and got another person to seat us. We waited 30 minutes in total before being seated. The seats we wanted with a view were already taken by other people who arrived later than us without any reservation. We had made reservations a week before for our group to celebrate my mom’s 50th birthday and no accommodations were made in preparation of this. The waiter quickly put 3 tables together in the back far from the band and behind broken umbrellas. We had no view at all. All of the nice tables were taken by people ordering drinks at the bar and taking a seat wherever they wanted. If we knew this was the case we would have taken those seats ourselves instead of waiting 30 minutes to be seated. The restaurant was not even busy. Additionally, service was very slow. We waited 20 minutes before the waiter took our orders. The food came almost an hour after. It was a very poor experience. The food itself was fair but very limited especially for vegetarians. For a restaurant part of the a Fairmont, it was grossly below expectations.

    Unfortunately, the service was terrible. We waited more than 45 minutes for our first drink, the food arrived cold, they brought one dish at a time several minutes apart, we ordered a hamburger and they had no ketchup 🙄. It was one fail after another. It’s simply not worth my time to give details on all the other things that went wrong. I felt bad for the staff because it is managements fault.

No cocktails menu , only 5 items on there dinner menu . The outside wasn’t as nice as they led me to believe. I was so disappointed, I walked out. I’ll never come back please don’t waste your tiMe !
