There is a dairy restaurant within the university there.  Not a big community.

I don't know the Sheraton but the Westin villas was very nice. I stayed there twice on points (less than the main hotel)

Sounds like you've eaten at Kitchen18. Well I'm not sure how you've eaten there and not realized the Chabad shul right next door (never mind that they give the hechsher on the restaurant), you can't really miss it.
Yes, they have daily minyanim.
