Part hotel/hostel, restaurant and music club--this place is all about the location. Right on the beach, barefoot bar, great people watching. The food was good--I was there for Happy Hour (2 x 1s most days) so I had the cheese quesadilla and watched the sun go down. Prices were between $6-10 USD and they had the basics--tacos, burger, sandwiches, etc.... More

Parents can chill while the kids play ping pong, swim with no rip tides and runaround and be noisy. Great people watching and fresh fruit drinks and cocktails.

Location is great in city center, but still right on the beach! Place it self is really relaxed, drinks are cold and food is good, not mind blowing but good! Staff easygoing and nice.

Awesome place to sit with the sand, on a swing with a fresh Costa Rican Imperial beer and enjoy the subset. Ambience makes this place special.

It's really nice to watch the end of the day and enjoy some drinks while eating some nachos or quesadillas. Usually there's live music around 6pm so if you don't like loud music you'd better seat away from the stage.

After 11:30pm on a Friday this place is packed! Good music, fire dancers when we were there, drinks are standard level of weak (order an extra shot on the side to ensure a "double" if you want something a little stronger), but the location is great and music was good. With the ping pong and pool tables, there's a little... More
