    Cena de año nuevo; new years Eve Dinner buffet at Gamma Fiesta Inn; el Castellano in Mérida

    Hi guys we were also very disapointed with a dinner. I couldn't find anything in the internet and hope some people can find my opinión and wont tap in this "trap"...

    Well I bought muy boyfriend 4 christmas present the tickets for nye-dinner which was a total disapointment and we got sick... We arrived at 8:30; right when it began. One ticket was for 1100 pesos and the menú card seemed to be amazing: 1. The whole food; even turkey; gravy sauce and potatoe mash was cold! I even said that to the waitresses; but nothing changed... 2. The food and most of the drinks were very! Mediocore/low quality... You would pay for a buffet like this in Germany! 250-300 pesos... The deserts were all instant powder deserts; there was no vino espumante; vino rose as said in the menús... And yeah I was asking twice the waitresses which answered me "no". Even for 12pm nye just Apple juice with gass or cidre? The sushi very low Quality even the mexican wallmart sushi which I ate a lot of times is loaaads better... no one wanted to eat that tortas de camarón; which was a undefinable mass...3. My boyfriend and me got really sick of that (diarhea); 7 days sick.... I felt so ashamed for my christmas present; and that the nye and last days of vacacions were ruined...
    And to declare because the management tries to subterfuge that circumstances with "mexican spices"

    We bought a Christmas dinner to go from Fiesta Americana hotel for a client this year and were very disappointed. The meal was ready but cold, the trimmings were very small in proportion to the turkey.There was an 8kilo turkey (chef herself said 8-10 people), then she gave me half a kilo rations of mashed potatoes, risotto and sweet mashed potatoes. Huh? Then offered gravy and cranberry sauce. But when we got to the house, the container marked cranberry was gravy.
