Actually ate here for breakfast several times on my trip in 2015. This place is located in the Hyatt Resort and Casino. If you can't find something to eat at their buffet style breakfast then you don't know what breakfast is. I have never seen a breakfast buffet that was so large. The food was hot, tasted great, and they... More

We decided to eat here out first night in Aruba . To be honest it was a bit over proved for what ordered ... our scallop appetizer was quite bland and our entrees were just ok . For the menu pricing I would expect something a bit more interesting than a ice cream scoop of mashed potatoes on the side... More

We always dine here on our last night in Aruba. Sit outside by lagoons where there are swans, turtles and koi. Pleasant setting and quiet. My wife always orders, off the menu, vegetable plate, and chef always does an amazing job with preparation and presentation, and is always creative. I did the beef tenderloin, which I usually do, and it... More

Hyatt Ruinas Breakfast Buffet - ate there 5 days in a row - really good big omelette at the omelette station. Really nice lady working there. Good selection of cereals, including oatmeal, and sweet things, waffles, Danish and some fruits. It could have used some fresh berries, but otherwise had most everything you would expect in a hotel brunch. They... More

We ate here our last night at the hotel. We sat outside on the patio. It was lovely and set a great mood for dinner. The food was pricey but delicious and the service was wonderful. Definitely, check it out if you're staying there.

Great atmosphere, delicious food and good service. Top both Sangrias! Highly recommend it. We went there specifically for lobster night. Started off with some delicious crab cakes. We each got different lobster- grilled, broiled and Tanquilut (I might be misspelling it) but we were all impressed. Their bread was to die for! Worth every penny! Tip is already included!

My husband and I ate here 13 years ago and I remember a wonderful dinner in a very cool atmosphere (we weren't staying at the hotel at the time), so I couldn't wait to bring my family back. If you are staying at the Hyatt (which we did this time), this is where they serve breakfast, so it kind of... More

We spent a week in Aruba and ate at many of the highly touted restaurants on the island - although a bit pricey, the meal we had at Ruinas del Mar was by far the best we ate all week -- you get what you pay for!
