We finally made it to Canibal Royal! We've walked past many times to see the "beautiful" 20-somethin year olds hanging out here, but never stopped. On lazy drizzly weekday this trip we wandered up the beach to check it it out. To our surprise, it was pretty empty, so we found a low table in the bar and drank some... More

We spent a day at the Canibal Royal for their beach club services when in reality it would have been better as a lunch spot. Pros: - relaxed ambience - plenty of seating - pretty views of water/boats - decent food/drinks Cons: - water filled with seaweed and boats docked at the "beach" - not swimmable or even for dipping...

This place has been around for 8 years and it never disappoints. The music is awesome as they have a DJ performing. And they serve the best Fish Tacos in the world, among many other delicious appetizers.

This is right next door to Elements so it is close and very good. Fish Tacos and Shrimp burgers are great (not what you would expect). Beautiful view and great staff. Always on our agenda when we go to Playa del Carmen.

Canibal made for an amazing wedding venue for our group (around 30 of us). The retro/funky decor and laid back vibe was totally our style and made for some awesome wedding photos. The beach was awesome for our fire dancers/playing with sparklers later in the night-felt like we had our own private beach. The food is amazing. The guacamole, rock... More
