Sole Luna, a restaurant in the resort offers a cuisine that can be described as a pleasant expression of the surrounding cultural climate: the original Caribbean kitchen. It counterbalances the strong Italian mark of the Totem Beach Bar which in itself open to all kinds of creative interchanges. The dining room, where the guests are offered various themed evenings with dinner, night-happenings with live music and special cocktail-parties, faces to the main swimming pool as well as to one of the two Jacuzzi's.
