Bruno made th night excellent but the view at sunset is unbelievable. Tapas were better than average with the tuna and zuchini being the winners. excellent drinks everything in dollars Go for the sunset stay for the service and food and drinks you will not be disappointed. Not for people who have trouble climbing 80 stairs or so ( i am not kidding)

I asked some friends where they recommended I go to eat and they told me to go to the Papaya Lounge which was perfect for me since I was staying at the adjoining hotel.

The restaurant itself is beautifully designed and decorated. What makes it spectacular is the view. To get to the restaurant you need to walk up quite a few steps but it is totally worth it for the view that you get. You can see for miles and miles in all directions and it's the best way to really see the lush greenery and the ocean that I could imagine.

The food is just a bonus on top of the scenery and it is a very tasty bonus. I ate several breakfasts and dinners here and I'd recommend it to anyone going through the area.
