We stayed a few nights and enjoyed the food we had - big bluff burger and sushi (both really tasty!). The first night the service was a bit slow but I believe they have a few new members of staff and they were all very pleasant and polite. The only down side was that they stop serving quite early and... More

We arrived for lunch and there were no other clients. Ordered a bluff burger. The burger was served and the meat was raw. Raw as in not baked at all, from the outside the meat was pink. We told the waitress this. Our burgers were baked a little more. We got back the plate with cold ( same fries as... More

We are really sorry for your bad experience, but we really appreciate your opinion. That Saturday was our first day after some renovations. As the first working day for everyone, the staff was feeling nervous and insecure. They belong to the local community of Playa Bluff "Anabocas". We want to give the opportunity to locals to learn and grow on... More

Great location. Had access to everything you want but felt like you owned the beach. The locals were friendly and definitely an addition to our trip. The proprietors were amazing, they couldn't do enough to make our trip memorable! A must stay

He says his secret is the celery salt and pepper rim but regardless it was pretty stand up. Couple that with what was probably the nicest scenery in bocas and you get the best beach experience ever. The hammocks are strategically placed to make you just never want to leave and they bring you your drinks while just rocking over... More

Great food and reasonable prices, very friendly staff who speaks English well (for those whose Spanish isn't the best.) They even have a pool!

Rented some atv's to drive out to Bluffs Beach, which is off the beaten path a couple miles past Paki Point. Was surprised to find this place there. We had a couple drinks, walked the beach a little, but opted to eat elsewhere. This seems to be more of a locals place than Paki Point does. Service was OK, but... More

We ate at the Playa Bluff Beach Restaurant 4-5 times while staying at Playa Bluff Lodge, which is the ecolodge that is right behind the restaurant and pool (where, by the way, I fully recommend that you stay while visiting Bocas del Toro). The atmosphere of the restaurant is very casual and open-air with a bar and beautiful, unique tables... More

My friends and I spent the day here to use the pool and get some food. The pool was lovely and clean, and instead of paying $5 for pool use you can buy food as a substitute. Here were my main issues: - my friend and I shared the seafood plate for two. During one of his mouthfuls he felt... More

We had one meal here, reasonably priced and nice but the portions were very large. Popular with families with children whenever we passed by it.
