Host was awful and seated us a high top in the bar area surrounded by a family with kids. Asked to move to the patio as there are plenty of tables.

Really poor service. Food was good but for how much it cost not worth it. Convenient for hotel guests but I’d rather go many other places than here.

As of late October 2020, there were 2 areas in which to dine. One, in a covered/outside bar area with several lg. screen TVs. We ate a bit further out, at a separate area with tables well distanced. Service good; food not. Expensive cocktails served in plastic cups. The mango frozen drink I ordered tasted chemically. We ordered a burger that was not in any way seasoned - just a Burger, lettuce, tomato, cheese in a tasteless bun. Fries were good. The (VERY small portion) mani-mahi dish had a chimichurri sauce on it that was good. The mahi-mahi was cooked well, but served on a huge plate of farro and vegetables, that again, was not really seasoned with anything. It was a disconnect of a dish.

Great fish tacos! A nice alternative when you want a casual meal that's still in an upscale atmosphere.

The food was amazing, far surpassing our expectations for a pool side bar/restaurant. Our server Leah was outstanding! Personable, attentive, and great with the kids!

We picked Umalu because a previous reviewer gave it high marks for portion size. They were correct; this was a great place for lunch. The food was well put together and very tasty. The view was amazing with paragliders in sight.

Loved Umalu would have gave it a 5star rating but there was a cat that walked around table to table being feed by guest and I am not a cat person so was not entertained by this..

The food is really good here. But for salad lovers, this is your place. The flavors can't be beat and the portion size will leave you satisfied. But save room for desserts!! Da Bomb is an experience.

They had changed their hours, so when we arrived our Open Table reservation was not valid since they bad stopped serving dinner. They gave us the limited late-night menu in the bar. It was fine, but not what we were seeking when we made the reservation.
