Dining at the Royal Andalus Hotel

A word from your Saga Host…

The Iberostar Royal Andalus

Part of a memorable Saga holiday is always having a fantastic dining experience. Iberostar Hotels are well known for their variety and quality of food on offer and the Royal Andalus Hotel does definitely not disappoint, with a menu that encompasses international gastronomy and typical local Andalucian dishes.

This spacious, well appointed hotel has an enviable position overlooking the Atlantic Ocean directly on the famous Playa de la Barrosa and is popular with golfers and families alike. Its location gives easy access to Chiclana de la Frontera, Cadiz; Spain’s oldest city, and Jerez at the heart of the sherry producing region.

All-inclusive for Saga guests

The buffet, with a delectable chocolate fountain

Saga guests stay on an all-inclusive basis, which includes all breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks and many premium branded drinks and wines. It is possible to eat nearly all day from 7.30am until 10.00pm if you so wish! Many guests say the ‘dining experience’ reminds them of being on a cruise ship, as it is hard to imagine a hotel with a more comprehensive buffet. What a great way to end a day; sitting at a table with new found friends, enjoying good company and savouring some of the best fare to be found in Spain.

Restaurants at the Royal Andalus

Grill Alameda restaurant

The Grill Alameda Restaurant offers buffet service and open air terrace and is ideal for a late breakfast, late lunch or early dinner as it serves snacks like hamburgers, sandwiches and hot dogs as well as fruit, drinks and cakes.

The Al-Andalus Restaurant Buffet

The main Al-Andalus Restaurant Buffet is the ‘piece de la resistance’ with spectacular buffet displays, themed evenings and show cooking with meat, fish and pastas. There is always a huge selection of cheeses, salads, cold meats, rice dishes, soups, fish and meat dishes as well as homemade desserts and bread. Themed buffets include Andalucian, Italian, Sushi, Fish and Cheese.

With so much choice it is often difficult to decide on what to eat when dining at the Royal Andalus Hotel! My advice – try a little of everything and experience new flavours. After all you are on holiday.

Sadly, this Saga Host may soon need a size larger uniform.
