Catering to a younger backpacker type crowd, beach bar and restaurant. Cocktails cheap and hit and miss...margarita's awful,dirty mojitos to die for. Ibiza style music vibe. Good for people watching and watching the world go by. Didn't eat as didn't appeal to me as very low budget and cleanliness questionable. Fun for a drink

The service was fine and i ordered Jack Daniels ribs and shrimp, to which the waiter looked at and confirmed then repeated the meal back to me. Having... More

Love this place for daytime: free sunbeds, wifi and good fireshow in the evening, staff is friendly and breakfasts are good for this price. Great sea view and nice music.

Don't order drinks here, they got lots of water in them, not worth the price. We left after one drink and went to another bar with drinks without water in them.

We were there just for a dinner on a recommondation of our hotel staff. Our waiter at the Swing Bar tried to speak a kind of New York gangsta slang which is not very helpfull, when he hardly speaks english. The taste of the food we got was average or less.

Made the unfortunate decision to go here based on a friend saying she'd read about it online. The 'swings' are just seats at the bar and the food is western pub food. Drinks were pricey and service average. Do not waste your time and money. Get a meal somewhere more authentic.
