Great view for drinks .....

But pretty expensive. However the owner was very nice and it was a superb place to chill in a hammock with a drink and watch the ocean and listen to the waves.

Had the best mojito made by Beto. Had a second one made by the other bartender- it was good but didn't hold a candle to the first. I will probably never get another mojito that good again- if Beto is making the mojitos order 2!!!

Isn't the worst and it isn't the best. Location and view of the beach are great at the end of the day. Drinks are a bit pricey but it is an island. At the end of the day, we will return for drinks and the sundown

Right on the beach, with great drinks and a perfect low-key "happy hour" ambience. The proprietor has excellent taste in music.

Nice location. But bit quite types, not so crowded. Not a place for guys who are looking for happening parties. Ideal for tranquil lovers. Quite descent place.

I had read that the rooms not on the beach side were terrible - but my room was perfect. I was in the building across the road from the main building, facing the lagoon, and it was great. I had a bed, and shower with hot water, and everything I needed for my stay. This is not a restaurant, it... More

It's tough to beat live music right on the beach. That plus the crowd is unique, the staff is really friendly and the drinks always taste good. We watched a band that was here on vacation (ie...not here to play music) play for 2 hours. Locals from the crowd were popping on and off the stage to play an instrument... More

We came for coffee and stayed for beer! Our first interaction was with the owner, Beto (he was bar tending). He quickly became our local insider for what to do and where to eat around town. We went back later that night and they had a DJ, he said some nights they have live music which we were bummed we... More

The beach bar right on the sand is the place for sunset happy hour 5-7 pm. The iguanas that hang out here during the day before this bar opens kind of split during this time. Good vibe & a good mix between locals & tourists.
