Highly overpriced at $54.00 per person for the selection of Sunday brunch. Food quality not the best.
Service was good but that was about it. Will not be returning and would not recommend.

Server was excellent and made the experience excellent. One meal missed the cooking station but they fixed it pronto. Little cold in the winter but nonetheless we enjoyed our Christmas dinner with the kids.

Shades is a fabulous venue for lunch - especially on a beautiful, sunny day when you can sit outside & enjoy the ocean view - food was great as was the service

It was a beautiful place but unfortunately they didn’t design the restaurant with a beach view, just a pool view. Instead their hotel’s convienance store gets the best beautiful view. The food was okay, but not amazing. The steak was awful and over cooked with little to no flavor, but they were very nice about it and replaced it with the chicken, which was great.
We would go again, but I wouldn’t order the steak.

The staff went above and beyond to make my wife’s birthday a very special day!
Chris started us off with a wonderful lunch. We came back to an outstanding dinner service with Sarah and Justin plus of course the bar and culinary staff. The food was top quality.
The staff presented my wife with a signed birthday card and birthday cake was delivered to our room.
