Not a better place at Rosewood to relax, grab a drink and have lunch. Alfredo (bartender) was so friendly! Food was delicious and we enjoyed several world cup games while sitting beach side.

Excellent Mexican menu in wonderful setting on the patio with great views over the ocean & swimming pool ... The service was 1st rate , knowledgeable & very attentive ... The selection of dishes should meet a wide variety of tastes .. The tortilla soup was superb.

While relaxing by the pool near the beach, Punta Bonita offers fantastic food and drinks. The guacamole is outstanding. We tried a delicious Mexican Sauvignon Blanc and also the local Mexican beers. For dining in the evening, try the baked red snapper, sea bass ceviche and save room for the Churros -- the caramel sauce and ice cream are divine!

We ate lunch here most of our days at the Rosewood Mayakoba. They have really good food for lunch. Watch out though, it'll cost $100+, just for lunch. The wait staff is really awesome....even when you are at your chairs. They were constantly walking by, asking if we needed anything.

This was our favorite restaurant on the Mayakoba properties. I'd recommend ordering tapas for the table. The variety is great. We loved the empanadas. We also tried the whole grilled fish which was huge and tasted great. The view is lovely.

We read reviews of this restaurant by guests from other resorts. So for lunch one day we walked up to the restaurant only to be told that they don't welcome guests from other hotels for lunch, just dinner. I thought this was ridiculous and asked to speak to a manager. After much discussion, he agreed to seat us. My boyfriend... More

We ate here on a rainy evening, so cannot comment on the setting; the indoor place is bare and completely lacks charm, though. The cocktails are creative and excellent. The food is good, but nothing to write home about, and certainly not-good-value at the price they can afford to charge given the unique location and captive clientele of the 3... More

We were staying at Grand Velas and decided to check out the Rosewood resort next door for dinner. Arrived at the Punta Bonita after a short and scenic golf cart ride from the main lobby building. The restaurant is beach and poolside - lovely setting!!! You can sit indoor or out. Don't miss the "secret bar" at the far end... More

We took a 15 minute taxi from Playa to this restaurant. The property is very cool. The food was good but nothing amazing. It was nice to have dinner overlooking the beach.
