Celiac's beware! I mentioned that I had Celiac (and translated it as a severe gluten/flour allergy), but still received food with gluten. I got sick from gf nachos at the 5 o'clock somewhere. Then I was stuck in bed sick the rest of the afternoon. Most of the restaurants were closed, so we ordered room service. I cut into my burger to find a couple of fries stuck to the meat underneath (which they said I couldn't have because it was in a gluten fryer). Needless to say, I sent it back. So much for a relaxing vacation on the beach. thank goodness the beds are comfortable.
On a recent visit enjoyed a dinner at each: Iguana's Pub, overlooking the golf course, and Marbella Restaurant in the hotel. Gluten free items are clearly marked on the restaurant menus. I had organic chicken with sautéed vegetables at Iguana's and ribs at Marbella. There are quite a few gluten free options at each restaurant including Shima's Latin-Asian and Palio (but they were not open the nights we visited...seems to be a rotating schedule). Ahead of time I emailed the catering manager and she emailed me the restaurant menus. [email protected]
There are a few different restaurants here. I ate breakfast today at "Marbella." I told the hostess of my allergy and she had the chef come out to talk to me. They have either a buffet or a menu. I'm here with a company and our vouchers are for the buffet, however, the chef told me she would personally prepare whatever I wanted to avoid cross-contamination. I had banana walnut pancakes and bacon and it was delicious. Very accommodating. I have not eaten anywhere else yet at this resort since it's my first day, but the chef said all of the restaurants can accommodate gluten allergies.
