We are getting ready to return for our 2nd trip to CSA and I had a question about the dress code at Patios. When we went last year, we never ended up eating lunch at Patios because we were in swimsuits. I searched the FAQ's and just want to clarify: is it OK to wear a swimsuit, cover up and sandals for both breakfast and lunch at Patios? When we had breakfast there we always wore shorts and tees and then went back to our room to change for the beach/pool.
Actually, Patois is a bit more formal than the Palms for b'fast and lunch. I went in for lunch one day with a two piece bathing suit and a sarong around my waist as a skirt. I was told that in order to dine I'd need to tie the sarong around my neck as a dress - thankfully it was big/long enough to do so! At the Palms I always go with a bikini and a sarong as a skirt, and no problems....Still no problem, though....
I totally answered my own question! I came across my packet of paperwork from our stay last year and the little brochure that we got on check-in says "breakfast and lunch is casual; a coverup is required for bathing suits."
I also see that Patois (I KNEW I was spelling it wrong!)is not open for lunch which could be why we never ate there. LOL
You'll have to forgive me - I was tired when I posted last night! lol I was looking at my little brochure from CSA and it didn't list lunch times for Patois so I assumed they didn't serve it. But it looks like from everyone's post they do!
Patois IS open for lunch. We ate there twice last week. When Patois first opened, I seem to remember they only did breakfast and dinner. In fact, I believe on our trips in '06 and '07 they were only breakfast and dinner, so they started doing lunch sometime after that.
