Dining & Leisure

Whether on the beach, in the sunlit "Plantissa - Healthy Café" and juice bar, or at one of the four themed restaurants - traverse the seven seas and embark on a culinary adventure worth travelling for: "LEK" with Mexican specialties, "Su Casa" on the beach with a Caribbean vibe and international cuisine, "Ume" with Asian cuisine, and "Mar de Olivo" with Mediterranean dishes. A diverse selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes is available, with non-vegan/vegetarian options also optionally available. Taco enthusiasts will delight in the popular "Vegan Taco Food Truck", winner of the 2018 Vegan Taco Competition in L.A. At the "Eolo Beach Club", you'll find jungle beats played by guest artists and pool bars serving fresh fruit cocktails. Allergies or intolerances are usually inquired about or can be reported in advance.
