Okay so I will start by staying for the past few years this is my favorite place to park my butt and sunbath, however I refuse to pay for their bed so just lay under a palm tree. If you do decide to eat or drink here make sure you are not too thirsty or hungry as you might be... More

This restaurant is associated with Cabanas Maria for a continental breakfast which is included when staying there. We also ordered huervos which we're fine and had a nice lunch one day. Any open air restaurant when I'm on the island is where I want to be.

This used to be one of our fave beach bars in the world. There were always interesting and fun people hanging out at the bar. Bartenders used to care about the quality of the margaritas. Overall, there are several better beach bars/beach clubs available. Give this one a pass

Buhos used to be a cute, small bar with swings. In the past years, they have expanded to a larger restaurant and bar. The expansion has not been good. No longer a cute, intimate place. Sad. Service is lacking.

This is a very laid back and chilled environment, it's a great place to relax and watch sunset. It's a bar where you sit on the beach and surround yourself by traditional people and experiences. There is not great wifi - but not sure why you would want it on such a beautiful and idyllic island, where you can enjoy... More

Nice place at the first look, right at the beach. But tables were instantly dirty and staff was just standing around, starring unpresently instead of attending. Food was average. I don´t understand why the owner does not do something about the service - it could be a cool beach bar!

We went there twice. Once for a snack. It took about 40 minutes to get one tacos. The second time was for a drink. We ordered juices and half an hour later, the waitress came with the wrong order. It took 15 more minutes to get the initial order and it still wasnt the type of juices we asked for....

Our waiter was excellent and provided great service. The drinks and food were great. The fritas were very good. Lots of shade to sit in from the hot sun. We walked over here from Ixchel.
