Nice hotel bar/restaurant. On par with what you would expect at an upscale resort. We only dined here for breakfast and cocktails with appetizers and weren't disappointed. Wait staff was very friendly and gladly handled special requests without hesitation.

Excellent location and space, but it was a mediocre meal at best. Service was inconsistent, and slow. Overall, we were not impressed.

I was underwhelmed at what was on offer for dinner, so I ordered two appetizers -- meatballs and crisp brussel sprouts. The restaurant wasn't very busy and I was dining solo. I decided to dine indoors and was the only person dining inside. The waiter brought out the dishes and promptly left for the remainder of the meal. I would've... More

Two good breakfasts. Great mimosas. French toast incredible. Our first server was wonderful. The second day, our waiter was lacklustre.

We went there twice so it must have been OK. Breakfast had the usual buffet, as well as menu service. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Dinner was good. Note: children 5 and under eat free, main reason we went there.

Thank you NickellFamilyTravel for the review. It was great to see you had an opportunity to join us at bluEmber. As a resort, in the summer time the majority of the guests visiting are families with children. They love to take advantage of Splashtopia! Throughout the year we do see a variety of travels as well, especially couples and conference... More

This is a great restaurant! The employees are nice and quick, the food is delicious, and it is a great experience! It is a more upscale restaurant, so expect that and plan for that before you go. Totally recommend!

For a hotel restaurant at a big resort, I had pretty low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised by bluEmber. Highly recommend the Brussel Sprouts and the Sea Bass with lentils.

$25.00 breakfast buffet, a little pricey but everything was delicious! Kid buffet is $12.00 ( worth the price when their cold cereal is $7.00 )
