Heavy on the spices

Aug. 10, 2015 Stopped in for lunch and I ordered the shrimp delight. After 40 minutes it finally arrived, WOW!!! It's was so over spices that it hurt to eat it, and as most places here at Alona beach the prices are expensive. I like spicy food but this was over the top.

The coco vida it s located in the best position in Alona beach. Sea front. Many bar and reastautant there and many tourists. That s why maybe the food is not so good. The staff is nice.

Got drawn in by the smell of the barbecue. Unfortunately, that was pretty much the high point of our dining experience. The meat wasn't marinated long enough so the pork tenderloin I ordered tasted bland.

There is nothing particularly wrong with this place. But once I got there I realized the price was a bit steep for the value. The rooms are clean and the bed is quite comfortable. The hotel has beach access but the water is not really visible from the rooms. There is a balcony, but so are there in most rooms... More

Really cool setting and location, right on the beach. Had a few beers and some appetizers. The food is good but not remarkable

I liked their comfortable chairs and the staff were great. We had to return the tiger prawns as they were off but all in all the ambiance is good. You can have better food at Safron in Amorita though.

We are local foreigners and were somewhat disappointed that a food establishment doesn't provide service water and only plastic bottled water on an island that doesn't have a recycling program and mostly resorts to burning the plastic. I understand it is an expense, but it is an expense any normal food establishment takes upon themselves. Including myself with my business.... More

We stayed at Alona Vida Resort for 4 nights and had quite a few meals and drinks at the adjoining bar. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food palatable. Best for me was the prosciutto Pizza. Also loved the lamamba cocktail. As with all the other cafes they have tables on the beach in the evening for a... More

We ate here twice, once at lunch, which was OK (had the pancit). And once for dinner which was great. They had a live band, the atmosphere was fantastic. The cocktails by the beach under a clear moonlight sky were delicious and so was the food. We selected our meat and prawns which they grilled and brought to our table.... More
