    Sunday Brunch

    I have always gone to the Hyatt for Sunday Brunch but for my upcoming trip I am thinking we might like to try somewhere new. Don't get me wrong, we LOVE the Hyatt brunch but maybe some other recommendations would be nice. Anybody have any other brunch spots they like?

    We love the Sunday brunch at Ventanas del Mar. You order off the menu (as much and as often as you like), unlimited mimosas/champagne, beautiful view of the golf course and water in the distance, and great live guitar by Ernesto. It's nice and relaxing.

    Angry Hyatt brunch

    I am sad to say that the hyatt brunch is not the same . The price went up to 51 dollars and the variety shrunk. They moved the displays around and now have fewer choices. The omelet station girl disappeared. Food on display was sloppy. They changed the chairs to cheap red ones and the table linen did not match. some white some yellow. Not as elegant anymore. Mostly locals last Sunday with babies, children different dress codes ( there was one young guy with a headband next to us). I often wonder if the price is different for locals than tourists. Did they change management? Can anyone shed some light? Looking for another option. Will miss my weekly brunch .

    maybe "windows on aruba" would be more to your liking, or radisson?

    are children not allowed to sunday brunch?
    is there an issue with the clothing the children are wearing?
    is there a problem with "locals" aka aruba residents being there?

    i do not mean to be intrusive with my questions, but i am trying to figure out the posting

    a few restaurants do have different pricing for aruba residents.
    most however do not.

    Thanks for the other suggestions.

    Let me clarify, the children were in carriages, strollers. Never seen so many in here. As for the clothing, the kids were adorable. The adults were dressed as though they were going to the beach, something i have not seen here before. I saw a different element this week. The locals or arubeans that I was used to seeing were elegant .

    As for the guy with the head band, it was really a black Durag! His shorts were hanging off and you saw his briefs.

    As for figuring out my post, I was trying to voice my experience and the recent changes in the Hyatt brunch, price, service and its atmosphere which perplexed me.

    Thank you for shedding some light as to the different prices at some restaurants.

    thanks for clarification

    omgosh, don't you just hate to see the "drooping pants" with the underpants showing. i do not get it

    typically beachwear is not allowed in most restaurants. i am really surprised.

    we have not been to sunday brunch in a few years, but always loved the radisson's brunch.
    a friend absolutely loves windows on aruba brunch and i would wager no beachwear or drooping pants/underwear showing would be tolerated in there!

    Sunday Brunch

    I am shocked that the Hyatt Brunch has gone down hill. We were planning to have brunch at the Hyatt on our next trip. Ventanas del Mar brunch sounds great. We have had dinner at Ventanas many times and indeed it is a very elegant restaurant. Ernesto, the guitarist is great and have known him from other locations. Looking forward to our next trip to Aruba
