Great food just a few steps from the beach. Excellent food & drinks. Service quite slow but you don't feel it cause that's the mood of the place. Hours can pass by.....

Love this spot! We stayed at the resort next door, so would pop over for a drink and some snacks often. Great atmosphere, drinks and food.

Enjoy a uniquely Mexican experience at this beach club. You can stay all day with just one drink, or snack all day, or have a fabulous meal cooked in their outdoor fired oven.

A great & fresh place for chill out and eat delicious. Tropical mood, informal dress code. Sometimes they do beach parties with great music. The beach is not amazing but you can take a photo a beautiful photo of all the lanchas over there. There's a pool at 3rd floor!

Went for a late lunch yesterday. We sat upstairs and had a fantastic view of the ocean. We were a group of 4 and ordered several items to share, the food was better than expected, everything was fresh and tasty. The service was attentive and we had a great time. Will definitely go back.

The food may be great but I'm not sure. We have only had light snacks and they were very good. I would suggest the Rock Shrimp. They are lightly breaded and with a spicy (not HOT) sauce. Do not get the Buffalo Shrimp unless you don't mind eating the shells. They are cooked on them and are impossible to get... More

Service not always the best and food a little more $$ because of the ocean front setting but the Grilled Corn and Hugo's Rice are my favorite orders. Also serves good frozen juice drinks that are reasonable priced if you do not want alcoholic drinks.

Undoubtedly this beach club was once a great place to relax but with the beach erosion and seaweed pollution the area has sadly lost it's natural beauty. The restaurant and staff try hard to make your stay agreeable and still provide good food and drink as well as a bohemian atmosphere mixing Brasil and Jamaican cultures into the Mexican theme.
