Loved this beach club and restaurant. Went almost every day we were there. We weren't staying there at the hotel, or on the beach, so we rented chairs, had great breakfasts and lunch.

Beautiful location right on the beach. Sand in your toes. Great food, the guacamole was incredible as was the Tortilla Soup. Every meal we had at this place was memorable.

Nice location directly on the beach with your feet in the sand. Very casual atmosphere. I had a terrific grilled octopus. My wife had chicken fajitas which she wouldn't recommend. Laid back ambience with a large menu of choices: nachos, shellfish, fish, chicken, beef and Mexican traditional dishes. Attentive service.

I've been to this place 3 times, and it's always excellent. Great location, right on the beach - with a sand floor, thatch roof and lovely palms. Great drinks (made as strong as you like them) and excellent service. I've had the seafood pasta - fantastic! But the best was the paella. It takes a couple of hours advanced notice... More

This is a great resaurant. The food is fabulous! The seafood and homemade pasta...we couldn't get enough. The location -beach front- can not be beat. "Christian" ( forgive me for messing up your name) was SO wonderful. He took such great care of us everytime we visited. The lobster tacos are great!

We stayed at the Mawimbi and ate lunch and dinner here almost every day. It has a great location right on the beach. The Nachos, grilled fish, Guacamole and pasta are all great. Nice place to relax with a drink too.

We stayed at the Mawimbi which was wonderful but we did not expect that our favorite place to eat would also be ….Mawimbi. There was very little reason to leave the site for food -- you simply could not have a better view or nicer servers.
