    We had noticed a decline in quality over the past few years. Maybe that's the reason.

    With Texas de Brazil on the main street and easily seen, maybe many people didn't even know they were there.
    And of course Andy's mention of the quality of the food.....that never helps
    On the rare occasions that we want to go out to eat and stuff ourselves we would always go to Texas de Brazil.

    So much competition...... Tried Amazonia a few times and then switched to TdB for our 'gorge' night. Felt that TdB had nicer décor, fresher food and a more fun vibe.

    Tried Amazonia for the first time last year. Was not very impressed. I don't eat meat, so the bar is really important. TdB has a better, more fresh selection.

    re: competition
    (a very bright lady mentioned to me last night)
    these restaurants are not only competing with each other, but have to compete with yet another all inclusive (Riu)

    the person that recently bought amazonia, paid cash.
    i wonder what his/her plans are?

    Valid point.... as I recall the Westin had 450 rooms. At about 80% occupancy, that potentially takes around 350 couples/families out of the market for restaurant meals in an already restaurant saturated area. A restaurant has to really stand out to survive in the high rise area...... or any area for that matter.

    Ate in Amazonia a couple years ago --- it was average for a Rodizio type restaurant. Never understood the need for 2 rodizio restaurants within a mile of each other. It was very expensive.

    Not sure which of the two was there first. We patronized Amazonia because I figured I'd rather go local than visit a U.S. chain restaurant in Aruba.

    I believe the folks who own(ed) Amazonia also own Aqua Grill. Any news on their status?
