We had dinner during the evening we spent there at Vegas Cafe, which is located at Fiesta Casinos, the casino that is integrated in the resort complex. The casino is actually several minutes’ walk away from the resort. Free shuttles are provided by the resort but we chose to drive there. Since we were going to try our luck playing, we might as well have dinner at Vegas Cafe instead of having dinner at Olives Restaurant, the only restaurant in the resort. Plus, there was a wedding reception near the restaurant that night and we didn’t want to be crowded into the restaurant with other resort guests.
The next day, buffet breakfast was served in the resort’s Olives Restaurant. There were tables by the balcony but we opted to dine in the airconditioned area.
Thunderbird Resorts- Poro Point only has one other “restaurant”–the Santorini Lounge and Pool Bar, which really just serves finger food and cocktails.
I think that the resort should make an effort to beef up its restaurants—if not the quantity of restaurants, then at least the quality of the food being served in the existing establishments. From online reviews and bloggers’ accounts, it seems that the resort’s food is getting mixed reviews. As I’ve observed here, Thunderbird is working with a built-in disadvantage with its location (at least with respect to drawing in travelers from Manila) so the quality and variety of the food should be made a priority. I hope they get to improve on this aspect. Cheers!
