Great Pizza

We come here once a week for great pizza. The view is beautiful and the staff is friendly. We have also had the ceviche which was delicious, but the panzanella pizza for 10 bucks American feeds two and is super tasty.

I think that playa carmen had the best waves, out of mal pais, and santa theresa. maybe it was the swell direction, also, it was a little quieter. I was there with my gf so we appreciated finding a private little beach of our own and loosing some clothing!

we were here the week after Easter. wary of a place so close to the beach thought they would have captive audience but not best food. Gave it a shot and boy were we wrong. 2 of us had fish dishes (one with mixed seafood sauce) that were excellent, and large portions. 1 had a chicken dish (curry) very good... More

Perfect in regards for bathing, surfing, relaxing and sunbathing. Its very clean, no bugs or insects. There are a lot of dogs, but this must be the happiest dogs alive. They are all owned by someone cause the all have a bracelet saying to whom they belong. But, they run where ever they want and hang out with their dog... More

Not as busy as Santa Theresa, the wave breaks pretty soft, but can be heavy... kind of closey outty... but works well, i found high tide and sometimes on shore to be the best.

My favorite beach in the area. Great surfing, with constant good quality waves in the early morning and late afternoon. Crowds are not that bad at all

We loved the location of this restaurant facing the beach. It was an easy walk from our hotel in Santa Teresa and made for a fun evening being able to stroll to dinner. What a romantic spot! Our dinners were very good. The menu is huge, so we asked our waiter for suggestions. He recommended a beef dish with Bernaise... More
