We went here twice, it had good strong drinks, good food, good service, and reasonable price. We found it much better than the restaurant to the right of it on the beach.

Good food and good drinks. Especially Pina Margarita, made with fresh pineapple instead of cheap fruit syrups, as in many restaurants. Inconvenient beach beds. Also did not like that for every single beach bed you must spend a minimum of 200 pesos, that is, if a family of 4 people, as I have, we must spend a minimum of 800... More

We came down to the beach after lunch to enjoy the waves, some beers, some chips and people watch. We met a beach kitty that was very sweet and treated her to a fish lunch.

Had huge, tasty shrimp watching the sunset, with a beautiful girl seated next to me. What could be better? But watch out, as soon as the sun sets, the mosquitoes come out of the sand and eat you alive. Timing is everything.

Good guacamole and okay service here on the beach. The guac has cucumbers here... which seems to be the norm in the area. It's quite good.
