Great place

This is a great beach café: great scenery, great waiters, great food and great pina coladas! It's quiet and comfortable, and like the hotel, is a lovely place to relax.

My husband and I both enjoyed our dinner here. Very reasonably priced and right next to Casa las Tortugas. I will warn you the bartender asked did we want sweet margueritas and we thought he meant rim the glass with sugar rather than salt, our choice. He actually meant that there would be no sugar in the drink itself. It... More

Mawimbi is a great place to spend the day on the beach, with great cuisine, nice people, very good service and a great location. It seems to be the place I would like to stay next time.

Nice Francisco does it all, it seems, other than maybe actually the cooking. Nice size guacamole, good margaritas. The room info says they will try to make whatever you want for you, we didn't test that.

I guess we caught the waiter and the cook at their lowest performance. The waiter made us wait 15 min to bring the menu, even though only 4 other visitors were there. He waited us as if we were into a bistro. At the end, he just took my glass away without asking, although there was a bit of juice... More

Try the sopa Azteca for its rich complex flavors and bits of creamy cheese, and the grilled shrimp. Only complaint was that the shrimp seemed a little salty but they were very fresh and not overcooked.

Lovely small home-hotel with mystic fairytale-like feeling. I was spending an evening here and the hotel felt so inviting and cosy. My Mexican friend always takes this hotel as it is in the village and on beach same time. I was told that the family keeps this hotel small -- only 10 rooms or so, no restaurant, but don't worry...

This is a beautiful setting. Tables right on the white sand beach. Everything we ordered was very good. I found it just a tad but pricey, but not ridiculous. Service could have been a little better.

We stayed at the hotel next door and almost missed trying this restaurant! GREAT food and particularly liked the cevichi, which is a fresh fish dish "cooked" in lime juice. Don't miss it, very charming spot on the beach with beautiful atmosphere.

This is one of my favorite spots to stop in for a drink, lunch or dinner. Located on the beach the place is serene and the quality of food fresh and great value.
