Heaven on the Beach

I couldnt have imagine a better place to spend the time doing absolutely nothing while sipping on some fantastic cocktails and snacking on some Mexican delights! Great service, Prices are realistic, and the view of the ocean is just so relaxing!! I cant wait to come back!

The food was excellant. I tried most items on the menue. I made many friends at Swell. I would talk with Alex,... More

... Well, you guessed it, swell! This is a busy beach club, waiters run Without stopping up and down the strip of sand, placing chairs and umbrellas, and bringing food and drinks. Sometimes the service suffers a little, but considering the pace, it's understandable. Consider swell beach bar for your next tanning session!

Got back to condo to find our watch was missing; returned to Swell where the waiter admitted he had found it. We identified it as ours. Waiter asked what its value was, and didn't hand it over. We had spent several days and much money at their establishment. Spoke to manager who refused to get involved, but felt we had... More

Swell is really swell !!!! Staff were great and remember us from out last trip in 2013. Food and drink prices are a bit higher than other club's in the area, but the quality of food is well worth it. Really enjoyed their burgers and club sandwich. Beach chairs and tables are newer than a lot of the other clubs... More

Again this year spent most of my beach days here. Although much more crowded this year, I still love the service, the food and the beach for swimming in that area. Was not happy with all the people smoking, I swear everyday we sat next to someone who smoked like a chimney, glad we were outdoors at least. The burger,... More

If you are spending a day at the beach, try here! The lazy beds are for free, but you are of course expected to eat and drink on site. This is no hardship. The staff are very friendly and we have had lunch here a couple of times and it is excellent. The ceviche, the stuffed chilis and the avocado... More

I was very pleasantly surprised that this little beach bar would serve up the best BLT I have ever had. Very good service, sublime location, grab a seat and have an awesome lunch. Can't wait to return.

Just came back from 2 weeks in PV. Hung out here every day. The waiters Jorge, Alejandro, Josue and David are all very personable and work hard to keep their customers happy. It is like one big happy family with a lot of regulars enjoying drinks and eats. The food is amazing. My favorites were the BLT and the Coconut... More
