Relax and enjoy, one of the best secrets near Cancun.

Let´s be honest, every beach in Cancun has its own charm, but this one, particularly, keeps a relaxing atmosphere for every visitor , take a look on the dudes that play music in here, they´re cool, and the food is good too, try the wrapper shrimps and the pescado a la talla... read more

Ceviche is amazing some of the best I've had. Rest of the food is average at best. Drinks can be expensive if you aren't drinking beer. The beach itself is stunning. The restaurant is dirty and you are best to ignore it. The food isn't cheap either. Many better places to eat in playa de carmen.

One year about 5 years ago we went to XPU-Ha 7 times in our 9 days in Playa del Carmen. Carlos, Angel, Jose, and the rest have always treated us like long lost friends. The service, food tops in my book! It's not for those who are used to the " all inclusive" It's for those who want a bit... More

So we have been coming here for years. Each time we return it appears the service and fees become worse and worse. We spend and average of 3000 pesos per visit and intended to this last visit but it didn't happen. 3 bottles of water and we left. Upon arrival we occupied a large palapa which has one table and...

350 pesos just to get a table!!!!??? Claimed to be full but still seats available. Definitively NOT coming again. I wish their service was half what their food claims to be.

Pretty setting but to get good service the waiters look for tips. Beware of ordering food, the sanitation is lacking. They don't use soap & water but simply wipe the dishes off & re-use.

The beach here is beautiful. They have umbrella with 2 lounge chairs for 250 pesos a day. They also have lounge chairs with and without cover for free with food and drink purchase. Their bucket of beer is 180 pesos. Get there early if you want a chair. They have bathroom and lockers. Get the receipt for your purchase and... More

While in Akumal an european tourist told us about Xpu-Ha and gave us directions so we decided to take a look at the "Xpu-Ha" and we found a wounderful beach with brightest turquoise water and white sand, and of course with some seaweeds like part of the nature. There is a rustic little restaurant and we have the best meal... More

The beach itself is beautiful. White sand, clear water. Restaurant food is just ok. The menu says if customers spend more than 120 peso per person they can get the cheaper beach chair for free. It is a nice offer but those chairs get filled up pretty fast (It was a Friday). We left the beach at 5 pm. The... More
