had a great afternoon here after we got to Playa - on the beach with a band and cold beers

This was a great beach bar very close to the ferry pier where you go to Cozumel. We enjoyed some cold beers - bucket of 5 (mix and match if you want) was $135 pesos. We enjoyed a burger and some fish tacos and both were pretty good. The beach, the blues, the waves and the music and the... read more

This is a typical beach bar, but the great thing about it is the free chairs and umbrellas. Most other beach bars charge for the chairs. You could order buckets of beer and the food was good. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was delicious. We will definitely go back before we leave Playa.

My husband and I like comedy and we happen to be there around the time they had a big comedy event and we decided to go for it. We got there early. So many empty chairs . As you probably know in stand up comedy events with no assigned seats, first comes first serves, but here they had almost 200... More

I'm not one to normally write a negative review unless I have an exceptionally negative experience. However, Wah Wah has earned it. We have been staying at a place very close by to this establishment. We went several times and had some good service at the beach bar from some fairly friendly staff. Sure, they are there to make money... More

Stopped in Wah Wahs for a late lunch while shopping on 5th ave. Easy to get to. Plenty of staff around to make sure your drink stays full. Ordered tacos and did plenty of people watching while waiting for our order. Other guest were friendly and shared stories on what to see and do around Playa. Tacos were good for... More

We had a buffet dinner here included as part of a tour. The food was EXCELLENT. We had a table on the beach which was nice, but the beach was a bit crowded and dirty. But the atmosphere was otherwise okay. There was live entertainment and the waiters were attentive.

Beach club. Good food, good price. Terrible people giving service. They are all day there,bored, and are not very friendly. You are just the next customer. Live music from 1-4 pm in the afternoon.

Drinks arrived 20 min after order.Food took about 40 min to arrive (and the place was half-empty!!).
