RSY Tequila and Lobster?

Post by herita » Sun Jul 05, 2015 11:13 am

Hola Addicts,

We are so excited for our fifth trip to the Palladium! We have always stayed in Kantenah in the past, but this time we decided to go Royal!! :1:

So we have a couple of questions:
1. What brands of Tequila do they have at the Royal Suites lobby bar/pool bar?
2. I've seen the extra charge lobster on our past trips, never tried it though. Is it possible to order a regular meal and then just get a lobster tail on the side as a Royal guest?

Thanks!
Hera & Mike

Hola Hera & Mike,

Congratulations on trying Royal this trip. I know you guys are going to tell each other we made a great choice soon as you wa;k into the lobby. The tequila of choice for many staying in Royal is Don Julio. That is the premium brand served in the lobby and pool. Don't forget to try the variety of ice creams at the Royal pool. Nice with a shot of Bailys on top. Yes you can order lobster on the side with any meal at El Jardin or the other ala cartes. Ask for the coconut shrimp in El Jardin for an appy also. It's not on the menu. Friday nights are lobster Cappellini nights at El Jardin and a meal not to be missed. They make it from scratch right at your table. It's usually a slow dinner night that night as everyone goes there for that so be prepared to relax and enjoy the evening. Any other questions just let us know.

Cheers,
Dan.
At the end of the day, "it is what it is"

As Dan indicated, the lobster is fantastic ... all the different dishes are great. I have tried many and I have not had a bad experience yet.

Keep in mind that the Caribbean lobster is different in taste and size when compared to the Maine/East Coast variety. Once you become accustomed to the taste it is fantastic. :1:

Depending upon when you travel, lobster may be a problem. It’s spiny (Caribbean) lobster spawning season till August and illegal to harvest. I was at the GP last month (June) and informed no lobster available till the ban ends. They have some large prawns on the menus that aren’t much smaller than the lobster tails --nice substitute.

As for tequila,' Don Julio or Patel are 'top-shelf'. You might also want to try Mezcal, with or without the worm!

Hey...Been at the resort since June 25th and there has been NO Lobster. They( Management) have been told that it should start sometime next week again. This is at all the Hotels in the area. Shrimp and Prawns as replacements.

The "no lobster" started when we were there for the Get Together in early May. Luckily I had one early on in our trip and then there wasn't any more after that.
