The breakfasts are fabulous as is dinner. We really enjoyed the Asian fusion cuisine and Impervist’s excellent wine list. Service is very good without feeling rushed. Thursday night was jazz night – excellent local musicians.

We enjoyed a lovely breakfast at Imprevist. After reading the reviews here at Tripadvisor we decided to give it a try. The breakfast selection was great and served as several courses... a nice change from the usual. Service was professional and friendly and the location pleasant. We will return on our next visit to Playa.
