Delectable Tropical Cuisine
We intend to make your experience special by serving you a taste of the local food and culture. Many of our meals are enjoyed at our hotel’s beachfront, gourmet restaurant "Shambala". Costa Rican Chef Randy Siles, who was featured in Sabores magazine, has brought his creativity and international flair to our scenic beach town to share with you his unique mix of organic vegetarian and high quality local meat and fish dishes. Plentiful organic salads accompany each meal and devilish desserts to satisfy your sweet-tooth craving. Chef Siles uses the freshest organic ingredients to create a variety of gourmet dishes for vegetarians, vegans, and meat lovers alike.
After morning yoga, our breakfast buffet consists of a variety of fresh tropical fruits, Costa Rican specialties and other vacation favorites. Fresh gourmet Costa Rican coffee is served, as well as an assortment of teas and juices. Lunch is a rewarding experience after a great surf session. Chef Siles goes all out with his homemade delectables like pescado envuelto, palak paneer, tuna takaki, fiesta fajitas, or healthy salads with tropical fruit, fresh catch of the day or grilled chicken breast. You’re sure to be satisfied when you leave your seat, whether you’re heading out into the surf for a refreshing swim, or off to a hammock for an afternoon siesta.
Several afternoons and evenings we’ll explore some of the best restaurants in town, which serve light and delicious meals like fresh lobster, Argentinean fire roasted chicken or Peruvian fish tacos. Relax in the shade on the beach and enjoy brick-oven fired pizza while you watch the surf, or lounge at Mary’s Restaurant while sipping a local’s favorite Mojito and savoring a seared ahi tuna filet over jasmine rice and fresh "farm to table" greens. With so many delicious choices you’ll be glad we’re taking you to all the right places.
