Waiting for your orders might take some time at some of the restaurants in Alona, but this place has a good service.

I love Coca Vida and have been coming here for years. The current manager these days arrives disheveled smoking a cigarette on the phone and shows no interest in the crew or more importantly the guests. Very unwelcoming! By the end of the night he's usually smashed hanging out with his friends. I spent two weeks at Coca Vida recently... More

The best Place to be at Alona Beach is Coco Vida Restaurant/ Bar. Good food and best Beach View. The Bar is well equipped and their Cocktails are professional mixed.

Nice atmosphere with tables direct on the beach and pleasant live music We first wanted to order a fresh fish, but after looking at those on display we decided to go for a thin-crust pizza which was quite good. The service was extremely friendly. Most of the restaurants in that area serve more or less the same kind of food.

We got some sizzling chicken thing. It was not good. Everything expensive here. The staff is very slow to take order also.

Coco Vida runs towards the more expensive when it comes to beers and food, and suffers from the apparently universal issue of slow service (45 minutes to make a banana split? Really?) but it's good a great location and a fantastic live band, so there are certainly worse places in the world to spend 30-45 minutes waiting for your meal.

Stopped here for breakfast and coffee. The coffee was good and strong. The fruit platter was fresh and cool. A good place to dig your feet in the sand and have a cup of joe.
