From the rehearsal dinner to the wedding reception, the culinary offerings are a testament to the resort’s commitment to excellence.

Their onsite fine-dining restaurant, Prado, is inspired by Spains Andalusian region and offers dishes like Albondigas, Pan de Manchego and other mouthwatering tapas. The romantic old-world feel of the restaurant combined with the fantastic service will wow your guests.

Luxurious Accommodations

The resort features well-appointed guest rooms and suites, each designed with a blend of modern amenities and classic charm. A recent renovation gave a style refresh to each room but kept the old-world charm of dark woods and a neutral color palette.
