We had a wonderful time here, we had shown up UN-announced after a long, long, long drive from Puerto Rico, we stumbled upon this place trying to find another hotel.

Went there after being in doomes beach, for a sunset dinner. This place is on my top list if you ever go to Puerto Rico, just the view makes the experience so unforgettable. Food is fresh, I had a fish... Cant wait to go back for surfing and to have a romantic dinner.

We were not dissapointed at all! The view was amazing and the sunset was breath taking! We ordered the fried calamaries for appetizers and... More

This is a great place on the beach to enjoy lunch or cocktails and watch some surfing. We went midday and had great service, if you are there at the right time, you may see some whales!

Food was very good, and even our picky teens were happy. Enjoyed the citrus marinated ceviche special. Great view of the beach and surf. Bilingual staff, and service was prompt and friendly.

My husband found this place on yelp was ecstatic to try "the best beach bar in America." We got there, ordered dinner, and waited for an hour... Even for appetizers, which arrived at the same time as our food. The only redeeming quality was the upstairs deck. Even at night, the view was magical, so that's why I'm giving Tamboo... More
