It is perhaps surprising that a hotel of this size has just one restaurant, but that is the reality at the Jacaranda. The huge dining room is one of the biggest we saw and has plenty of space for everyone. The decoration is nothing special however the choice of food is large, with, at breakfast, lots of fruit, bread and pastries in particular and treats such as churros! Despite the high number of people at any one time, there is never a tray left empty and the food remains warm.
There are two pool bars at the Jacaranda, one at each pool area. The one on the ground floor, under the huge water feature is brand new and serves both beverages and snacks such as sandwiches, burgers and ice cream all day. Sitting behind the waterfall, looking out toward the pool area generates a strangely calming sensation. The second pool bar is located up on the terrace and is a round structure with a thatched roof, offering similar fare as the other bar.
The piano bar, on the same level as the hotel's lobby, is a pleasant place to enjoy a drink despite its size, with black and white photos of stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Groucho Marx on the wall and quaint alcove seating along the edges. As well as, of course, a grand piano, it has a flatscreen television and a small dance floor. It is open from the early morning until midnight. Finally, the Salon Jacaranda, the enormous room where the evenings' entertainment is held, is a low-ceilinged space decorated in blue with a stage and two bars. It is a fine venue for the spectacles, the only down side being the columns that restrict viewing.
