By the way Rissask that place looks so nice! Little out of our budget though. Look forward to reading your trip report when you go one day!

I am a Trip Advisor member- so let me clarify the dress code question at Satay and get back to you!

I found this thread:

Privileges Aluxes Dining Dress Code - Isla Mujeres Forum - TripAdvisor

And some others that said the same thing. Sandals and shorts for men ok at Satay and Sabor and the beach restaurant Cafe del Mar, all good.

By the way, have a great time in Vegas. I see your vacation ticker. My hubby and I went a couple of years ago for the first time! Had a great time! Take your walking shoes!!!! Don't even try and wear cute shoes unless they are comfortable!

Thanks! We are staying at the Mirage, last year at the same time we stayed at the Aria, it was my very first trip. I will be wearing my Sanuks for the days, no worries!

I also don't like wearing pants on vacation (shorts only) or collared shirts. But, we stayd at Privileges Aluxes and saw the dress code, so I brought a pair of pants and a couple of collared shirts. Went to Satay, and I think I was the only male customer there wearing pants. I was fine, but would have been happier in shorts. Not beach shorts. This was two years ago.

Where did you see it....I couldn't find anything on their site, and people on TA say there isn't one?

I would guess their website. I went and looked last night, and there is nothing listed. Maybe the dress code doesn't exist any more, since it would seem many (from what I saw the couple of times I was there or near there) were not following it.

maybe! Seems silly to require long pants and shoes for men, Isla is so casual and PA is not exactly The Ritz.
