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

The quality is what you would expect to get in a very pricey restaurant but at not nearly the price. Although not on the menu they will make you breakfast when the kitchen opens around 11... More

But last week was the best. We went out fishing with Andres, one of the owners, who is also a professional fisherman himself. After an exciting day on the bay we brought our catch back and Swell's excellent kitchen staff cooked the fish to perfection. If there is one place on the beach to eat, drink and be taken care...

Great salads, attentive service, comfy chairs. We found this place through recommendation and kept coming back. We were very well looked after, the staff are engaging and friendly. Their salads are massive and very tasty. Prime beach spot, towels available. I understand that reservations are required for peak season but as we travelled in low season our favourite table was...
