The Barefoot, their neighbor and a few other spots are all great, but what separates The Barefoot is the staff, food, and live entertainment. The performers are excellent! Free wifi, loungers on the beach, two bars and daily food specials- terrific drink selection and also ideal for watching sports! My photo doesn't do it justice.

Great party bar. Good service and good food. Right on the beach where you can sit out in the sun or in the open aired bar where you still outdoor enjoy the view

This bar is for party time. Looks like a lot of locals go there to meet tourists to possibly sell drugs or sell sex. That was my take away. I didn't feel all that comfortable there. That seems to be the place to be though to have a crazy party time

Great place to have a drink on the beach. It was still early in the day and fairly empty but definitely see it getting full during peak hours. Definitely would make this a go to bar if we were staying in placencia. Also it's right next door to another great bar: the tipsy tuna.

Good for hanging out in the breeze off of the sea. Clean beach area. OK food. Definitely touristy. Good staff.

This is exactly what you would expect out of a beach bar. Music, lots of drinks, right on the beach. Enjoy yourself while sitting on the beach, at the bar, or at one of the many tables. They can definitely accommodate groups. The menu has a lot to offer and everything I have tried was well done.

Right on the beach this colorful bar serves great cocktails at a very good price. The food is quite good too and the waitresses always super friendly. On top of this you add good live music so the place became quickly our place to hang around at the end of the day. Fireworks for new year eve! That's heaven!

We enjoyed some tacos and a lobster grilled cheese for lunch here. Cute place right on the beach. The drink menu is as large or larger than the food menu. American fare for the most part with some local food mixed in. I had ice tea with my tacos and was charged for each refill which surprised me a little.... More
