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

We went to Swell for lunch one day while in town shopping. The staff is very friendly and attentive. It's a great place to people watch and hang out for the afternoon. The salads are large and delicious! The ingredients are fresh and the grilled fish and shrimp are well prepared with just the right amount of seasoning and dressing.... More

We spent two days hanging out at Swell's. Nice club on a beautiful spot on Los Muertos Beach. We tried a few different things on the menu. The fried Calamari, club sandwich, Cobb Salad. They were all very good. I would say that the Cobb was the best. Huge salad that was big enough for both of us to share.... More

I'm with the last person who reviewed this place. We go there a lot when in PV. I's a great location and you can reserve ahead. Best coconut shrimp I've ever had. However the staff don't pay enough attention, the best one they had was a young girl working her way through school but when things slowed down she was... More

I spent the month of May 2014 in PV and frequented this particular spot along Los Muertos. They have comfy loungers with lots of options for shade right on the beach. Each two chairs has a large table for your drinks and eats. They bring you a fresh towel if you need one and a bucket of ice for your... More
