I absolutely loved the coffee!! The staff had trouble understanding English but the coffee made the difference. The Vanilla is perfect!!! We were happy to see Starbucks in Playa but tried this place instead!! We never made it to Starbucks because the coffee was AMAZING!!!

Great coffee and all with a little chocolate. We had the frappes but there were numerous other types. They also had great pastries and cookies.

It can be so hard to find decent coffee when travelling that sometimes I resort to 'Starbucks'. When I first tried the coffee here I was not expecting anything great so I was very happily surprised to discover that the coffee here is of a very high standard. Getting my coffee here every morning really made my 2moths in PDC... More

Can't say anything good or bad about this place. Average coffee shop, plenty like this in London and everywhere else. Not worth getting especially there, but if fancy or coffee or cold drink why not to stop there.

My favorite is the coconut ice cream, and also we discovered cocoa body oil and after body lotion to maintain your tan and cool your body! Definitively you'll smell like a walking chocolate!
