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

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

We went here as part of a tour we were on venturing to the ruins and caves. The trip included lunch. I thought this was a true Mexican spot that is visited by many locals, because I don't know how you'd find this place if you were a tourist like us! We had a buffet that was real good. Limited...

Excellent location, friendly staff, happy hour from 5:30-6:30. Best margaritas in the area. Check out the Hawaiian quesadillas.

the food was very good and the beach was beautiful! There could be more lounge chairs, but the tables that were on the beach would turnover quickly

Enjoy going to this beach club as the beach is one of my favorite. The food is ok and the service is good, and prices are comparable however the seating arrangements are not the best in that the 'red' chairs are very uncomfortable. But if you put that aside, and enjoy the time at this gorgeous beach you will enjoy... More

We met a fellow in Playa del Carmen and he reccomended the visit to this place. After reading reviews in TA we brought our own sunbrella and beach blanket. Colectivo van trip from Playa was 40 pesos ( aprx. 3 US ) per person and there is another 40 pesos entrance fee at the highway. We walked on dirt road... More
