Great meeting place on the Malecon

We meet here often with friends. Excellent views. We usually sit on the second floor away from the front balcony because if you are there when the sun starts to set it is far too hot. Great place for cheap beer and margaritas. Remember you get what you pay for so don't complain if the... read more

The drinks are cheap and the view overlooking the Malecon is excellent. Unfortunately the $1 margaritas are made with a crappy mixto tequila and a pre-made mix rather than fresh squeezed lime juice. For a few pesos more you can get margarita with a better tequila but they still use the same mix. Better off sticking to the beers. Food... More

Great selection of drinks. good pricing and close to the hotel. Good staff with knowledge on what's hot and where the party is. open late and the music is more Mexican but tend to mix up at night.

No better place to get some drinks and hang out than the cheeky monkey! Very laid-back environment and the bathrooms are about what you would expect of a bar called the cheeky monkey. That being said, the view of the sunset is out of this world. We got some french fries to munch on and they were really good!

$1 for cervezas and margaritas! They also provide cold towels which is a nice relief in the summer humidity.

Atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere. You walk upstairs to the restaurant and get this beautiful view of the ocean. Staff very friendly. When on the boardwalk, a must place to visit. You won't be disappointed. And the $1.00 margaritas will keep you coming back.

The Cheeky Monkey was a nice little second story restaurant that had a wonderful view of the boardwalk and the water. It was a great place to sit and people watch while you enjoyed $1 Beer and Margaritas. My husband was a huge fan of the Madelo Light, I drank water because there was absolutely no breeze and extremely hot... More

Reasonable prices, great food, cheap drinks! Really enjoyed their coconut shrimp. No food complaints from the large group of people that we were with. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was sub par though. There was a language barrier with our waiter, who was very pleasant. This did lead to confussion when our order arrived though. Would definitely return
