Everything about this place was perfect! The staff, the food, the ambiance, and the restaurant was very uniquely built. Right on the oceanfront. Drinks were very good and the ceviche was out of this world!

We made the 15 minute walk from the Water Club to La Playita for lunch. You walk through a very small hotel and restaurant is in back. It sits directly on the water. We ate there on a Saturday around 1:30 and there was only...More

There's not much to chose from at Isla Verde for beach bars. Playita benefits from having great views from the bar restaurant. The prices are bit more than you would pay at a normal bar as it is a hotel but not unreasonable, hence average...More

Don't be fooled by the looks of the hotel, it's nothing fancy however the food and the view of the ocean is the real draw here. I walked from the Water Beach Club Hotel just to make sure I experienced eating there during my stay...More

Always a great meal, right on the water. This has the best Coco Loco's in Isle Verde. It is right off the beach with easy access to and from. The service is amazing never a bad meal.

The location is beautiful. Off the beach, soft music, soft light & the sound of the ocean. Food was awesome!

This was the perfect casual, laid back, right on the water, type of restaurant we were in the mood for. We ate on deck right on water and loved the night view! We ordered multiple appetizers as our meal and all very good. Also, had...More

Discovered this cute little place while swimming at Isle Verde beach. Great restaurant right off the water. I think it's a hotel too. Had a CocoLoco rum drink (in a coconut) that was great. Also had nachos there which were good too. Actually went back...More

Nice place, service, atmosphere to watch the sunset. The seating are is next to the water near the beach. Hamburgers, appetizers and chicken fingers are the best. I highly recommend this place.

I am curious about the reviews that state that the toilet is right in view of the hotel room. Is there no privacy?

They valet park. I would let them park the car for you rather than attempt to park it on your own unless they instruct you to do so. The roads are narrow and not all streets allow cars to be parked on. We walked from our... More
