Dining & Drinks: 

The main restaurant at Avalon Excalibur is called Bellavista, which serves three meals daily. The focus is on a blend of international cuisine (Asian, American and Continental) with traditional Mexican dishes.

El Cocotero is found near the beach and specializes in seafood items, without neglecting those who prefer other choices. Traditional Mexican meals are also served. It is open for breakfast and lunch.

Both restaurants serve buffet-style for the all-inclusive plan. A la carte choices are also offered, but outside the plan.

The Palenque Bar is by the pool, offering snacks, appetizers and light entrées as well as drinks and refreshments of all kinds. Sir Lancelot is an open-air burger and hot dog stand.
