I have to let everyone know about how wonderful this place is.. Or maybe not, if it gets too crowded!! But, we went with our two kids several days during our stay at Orient Bay... Lounge chairs, drinks, lunch. All outstanding! Gregory is the definitive professional - very laid-back, yet attentive and knowledgeable (hi Gregory!) and the other staff, bar... More

La Playa is a nice beach spot with great service from Gregory. They have a Sunday buffet for about $19/pp. This is the only day they honor $1 - 1 Euro so that's a good day to try it. The bathroom, though, is pretty disgusting, so beware.

La Playa beach bar was the featured bar when we went to Orient Bay on a stop with Bernard’s tours. We got an amazing deal and enjoyed our time here. Great chairs, great beach, great time.

As we were renting a nearby condo we were able to use the beach lounge chairs at La Playa (if you didn't have a deal with the owners you had to pay for your chairs each day). The chairs were comfy and only a two minute walk from our condo. The service on the beach was lacking - unless you... More

Great way to start your day as you are basically eating breakfast on the beach. We started each day during our stay at L'Hoste at La Playa with the included breakfast buffet. Hot and cold cereal, fresh fruit and pastries. Juices and coffee. During the day, La Playa provides L'Hoste guests with a beach chair and umbrella, but ladies, be... More

We stay at the hotel just behind the restaurant. It has great food, especially fish dishes. Open for lunch only. If it starts raining it is great as it has a lot of covered tables protected from rain and wind. The beach bar is also great. We recommend staying on their beach so you can enjoy the beach, ocean, bar,... More

Go get em ladies! This is the most relaxed bar on the beach, without being run down or awkward. And the bartenders will make you smile for days. Gregory (self proclaimed "Black Jesus") is the perfect relaxation guru, as well.
