    Our family had a lovely Easter dinner at Jota. Diego our server has attentive and friendly. Made sure our youngest son got his pizza right away so we could enjoy our meal. The views are amazing and ambiance is perfect for a family vacation dinner.

    We went this time for the Easter Brunch buffet. The food offering was very nice. Service as good as ever. The background music was very delightful. My only comment would be that they should have placed description of the dishes on the buffet.

    Jota by Chef Jeremie is one of our preferred places to just go, break away from the rush, and have a wonderful meal. The beautiful setting at Royal Isabela is particularly relaxing at dusk, our favourite time to come. We will keep returning!

    We are frequent visitors to Jota by Chef Jeremie. You can never go wrong with Jota. It probably is one of the most relaxing places to have a meal. The views from the restaurant of the Royal Isabela resort are breathtaking. Add to this impeccable service, delicious, creative farm-to-table cuisine, you just cannot go wrong. We'll keep coming back!

    The food was great and fresh. The location and setting was unparalleled. The drinks/bartender were perfectly done. Peaceful. It is not rushed, which for us was perfect- we lingered outside for the western PR sunset and the stars came out- perfect! If you are more of a go go diner / in a rush, probably tell them.

    Despite a spectacular setting, dinner service was terribly slow (not driven by wait or bar staff but by the kitchen). The meal took 3 hours all told. The food was very disappointing, my catch of the day was so dry it had a freeze-dried consistency. The prices were equivalent to New York City prices. Overall a complete disappointment and I would strongly recommend avoiding if possible.

    It was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. We had a reservation at 7:15 and they sat us down at 7:50pm after asking twice. We got a 4 course dinner. It took them 1:20hrs to bring us the first course. We ended up finishing dinner almost 4hrs later from the moment we arrived. The 4 course dinner was the only option they offered that day which makes it worst because they already had an unique menu prepared. It’s safe to say that we will not be going back. I’m giving it a 2 star rating because the food was tasteful.

    Hugely disappointing. My husband, who rarely cooks, could make a better meal. Wait staff was attentive, but she doesn’t make up for the abysmal food which was prepared with zero thought and care. “French” portions, with none of the finesse. We had expected much better. We go back once or twice a year due to the beautiful location, and with the hope that the food will improve, but it’s gotten worse rather than better. VERY disappointed and can only hope the new owners of Royal Isabela will give this proper attention.

    I like the variety of protein that chef Jeremy always have. From fresh local fish(Dorado, cartucho, chillo), diferent types of meat: pork, chicken, rabbit, top meat cuts, etc. He is creative with those and always combine with pasta, local fare( mofongo, tostones,mashed legumes…). We had a great evening. And the wine selection as well as drinks menu is excellent.

    We reserved a table thru Open Table for the Christmas Experience at 0930. Buffet, music etc.. When we arrived, the was no greeting, no staff actually visible anywhere. There was another family seated at a table so we knew someone was around. The view was, however, incredible. After finding staff, we were seated and given menus. I was thoroughly confused and asked about the experience I had reserved. I was told it didn't start until 1100. Showed my reservation in Open Table, which clearly stated I had reserved the Christmas Experience and was told it was a mistake. This was the first time they were using Open Table for the experience scheduling and we would have to order off the regular menu. Needless to say I was extremely irritated. We drove an hour to this place for an overpriced, limited selection breakfast. Not the Christmas Experience I actually booked. The food itself was fine, nothing spectacular. Wife ordered the coconut french toast that had no coconut flavor. Kids and I ordered the Monte Cristo. Sandwich was ok, nothing to want to order again. The potatoes served with the sandwich were out of this world good though. Bottom line was someone screwed up their reservations and we paid for it. There was no ownership of the mistake other than, sorry order from the menu. No cut on the bill, no offer of anything to show some remorse over their mistake. Great views and ok food. Terrible customer service.

    Angel and Marina were AMAZING. From the moment we were seated, the waiters displayed a friendly and welcoming demeanor. They were attentive to our needs, offering recommendations with enthusiasm and a genuine interest in ensuring our satisfaction. Throughout the meal, the waiter maintained a perfect balance of attentiveness without being intrusive. Our drinks were promptly refilled, and the timing of each course was well-paced. We enjoyed the wine Angel recommend us too. We will be back. PERFECT DATE!

    Beautiful settings. Gorgeous sunset. One of the servers was very strict and vocal about limiting our pictures location. Not very welcoming but Marina, the young Bartender was super friendly and polite. Angel, our waiter was very nice but we had to wait a long time for our dinner which was delicious but cold. Not ideal for us.
