Food and Drink
The Beach Club itself has two excellent restaurants.
Albatroz Restaurant offers a delicious selection of local and international cuisine and provides a fine dining experience all day, from a fabulous breakfast buffet right through to dinner in the evening. Given the location so near to the ocean, fish dishes are a particular speciality, but the steaks are also not to be missed! People visit Albatroz from outside the Beach Club resort simply because the food there is so good. There is extensive indoor and outside space, an extensive wine list and knowledgeable and friendly staff, all of which help to make your visit truly memorable. Look out for the regular music nights there during the summer season too.
