                                                      Dishes had no quality. Poor presentation. Burrata was a disgrace. Scallops were horrible.

                                                      As in the past, this restaurant provided an excellent meal, service and ambience. In spite of what the pandemic and inflation has brought on all of us the price for the meal was high for the portion size. Again, an excellent experience!

                                                      Food choice was limited and poor. The bacon for example was card board and the fresh salmon looked sick, the entertainment being for breakfast was too loud. We had a 2 and a half year old with us that was charged as an adult. We had a parking ticket when we asked a waiter if it can be validated, he answered no, whilst we ask another waitress she told us it can be validated at the front desk.

                                                      What a beautiful venue. We sat outdoors over the koi pond and it was beautiful. We were all in the mood for steaks and thrust didn’t disappoint. The tenderloin could be cut with a fork and cowgirl steak was delicious. Service was attentive and professional.

                                                      Waited 35 min for dinner. No one came over to update us on a meal. No apologies. Complained to the Hyatt Manager and not a single response back. I’m sure they had a good excuse but they could have shared that with us. Truly disappointed

                                                      I had lobster and steak. Lobster was well prepared. Steak was tough and not up to par. Service was done well. Wine list was limited but vice.

                                                      The restaurant is beautiful. We had the watermelon burrata which was pretty good. I had salmon was supposed to be blackened but not sure that it was. It was also a little dry and overcooked. My husband got the steak special, he was super excited about it. When he cut into the steak I could see the disappointment, it was tough and beyond difficult cut. It was over $50 for the steak 😩

                                                      Both of the patrons ordered steak. One ordered rare, the other medium. Rare had to be sent back to the kitchen because it was barely seared on the outside. Medium arrived exactly the same way but the patron took it home knowing it would have to be re-heated to bring it up to the rare her spouse ordered. Very disappointing since we were celebrating a milestone anniversary. Expected to see black and white swans and flamingos as in years past but only one unfriendly black swan is left. The koi were a nice touch.

                                                      This Easter breakfast buffet was not up to Hyatt standards. Although I acknowledge they are remodeling their regular breakfast area, they made no effort to maintain their reputation for having an outstanding breakfast buffet, or even a higher standard for Easter. The regular breakfast at the Marriott is much better. We were very disappointed having this our long-standing favorite breakfast buffet.

We especially enjoyed the friendly swan my daughter named Silky. Our server Randy was wonderful and very friendly.

                                                      Lovely table next to the pond where we were entertained by their cranky and very pretty black swan. Service was attentive and friendly. Menu was somewhat uninspired. I ate off the appetizer menu—cucumber gazpacho and plantains. My date had the scallops which she said were excellent. Desert was a pear puff pastry delicious and made to order according to the server. A nice dinner if a little unremarkable.

                                                      Sadly in need of a reboot. Perhaps the pandemic wasn’t kind to Ruinas Del Mar? Perhaps it’s the ever growing competition from amazing restaurants in Aruba? This was our 3rd time dining here and by far our least favorite meal from our recent vacation. Short staffed. Out of several items on the menu. Food was meh. Restaurant was empty at prime dinner time. Missing it’s soul. The location has so much potential. A beautiful setting at a great hotel. Let’s hope the Hyatt can bring it back to its once top tier status!

                                                      My boyfriend and I decided to go to this restaurant to have a romantic dinner while on vacation. The ambiance and decor was very pleasing to the eye which made it feel romantic as well as very comfortable and elegant for dinner. The food was OK but did not meet my expectations as I thought it would have provided us with more of a “wow” factor. However, I will say that the dessert was excellent-we have the brownie, chocolate mouse and pistachio cream, which totally exceeded my expectations. The service despite it not being very busy was mediocre. I would have expected this experience to have been more; however, overall it was just ok with a hefty price tag. Had the food been more tasty then I wouldn’t have mind the price tag given that it was a beautiful restaurant!

                                                      Special was Blackened Red Snapper over linguine w vegetables, which sounded good, but had a pomodoro sauce which just did not work (to my taste) with the snapper. Also steak filet with sides were all cold. Disappointing.

                                                      30 minutes to get a drink. Had to make substitutions from the menu because they were out of a lot of things. Seemed like they were under staffed. Dessert was great.

                                                      Food and service was amazing. The food specials for the day were delicious and our waiter was fantastic about making recommendations when we had difficulty choosing between two options. I was a little disappointed that I had made a reservation for outside but there was no seating outdoors. However our waiter indoors was so amazing it made up for it.

                                                      The menu is limited for dinner service and the food and drinks were pricey for a 90’s style resort restaurant. It’s pretty much a tourist trap. The hamburger I ordered turned out decent, but the kids meal chicken tenders lacked flavor and were hard and over fried. Obviously they were from frozen. I’m glad I wasn’t staying at the resort, because I’d be eating off resort everyday.

                                                      Loved the koi's floating around below you and all around the little island we even glimpsed the sunset through the palms. The Hyatt property has iguanas parrots and swans so such a peaceful atmosphere. The service was lovely for our 20th anniversary and they gave us a unforgettable puff pastry with pistachio ice cream I will never forget!

                                                      Very nice table outside overlooking the koi pond. Started with clam chowder, it was like nothing I have ever had. Three big shrimp, three mussels and three clams in a delicious broth. Definitely worth the money. Filets were cooked perfectly and we had leftovers for the next day. Top notch service too.
