“Small Dance Floor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Our friends and I arrived at this nightclub after hopping from another one. We were friendly greeted, and there was no cover charge. The music was great, hip, and mostly top 40s. Many of the locals enjoyed it so much they were dancing on the bar. It felt like a younger crowd, but we still had a blast. The bathroom was decent. There was also the option of paying 300 pesos for an all you can drink night.

“Fun! Packed!”

I had fun here... The place was absolutely packed! People dancing everywhere, next to our table, in the walkway, and on the bar! Very fun to watch! Very friendly employees also :)

“Its OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2011

This is the 3rd bar/club we hit up on the Malecon on a Monday night.

We arrived and the doormen escorted us to a great spot. The table was next to the DJ booth and overlooking and the crowd. It was a mixed and energetic crowd. We had some MILFS from the Midwest shaking their thang on the bar tables. It was cool. The music was the same as Mandala...except that they mixed in a handful of reggaeton and 3 hip hop songs. Yea, I counted. I am a hip hop and R&B fan and I was waiting for those beats haha. Unfortuantely, the DJ picked some weird (in my opinion) tracks. He played Wiz Khalifa's Black and Yellow, Rihanna's Love The Way You Lie, oh and a bunch of Black Eyed Peas songs (doesn't really count lol). Then it was back to the usual Top 40, Pop, Dance stuff you would hear in West Hollywood.

This place is not as big as Mandala but it is still cool in its own way. I give it 1 more star because the DJ had a more diverse playlist.

“Changing prices that keep going up!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2011

My Wife and I were there 3 days ago. Started off by having a "Free Beer". 192 mill bottle! Then ordered a second beer at 20 pesos and got a full bottle! 350 mill. Ordered the next one and the price had gone up to 40 pesos. At this point I told them that if I wanted to pay $4.00 a beer then I would just go to a club in Canada! Left the club at this point! Walked up the street to Paradise Burger and paid 20 pesos a beer and they had a live band! Advice stay away from the Hilo! They never tell you the price until you have already ordered! No tip no nothing for these guys! Avoid! I would never recommend this club with there changing drink prices!

“skeezy and crooked”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2010

Terrible. Zero stars. The drinks were over priced and randomly priced, you never knew if your next beer would be 40 or 80pesos. The staff was rude to the men, and liked to try to cop a feel on the girlfriends. Hilo and/or its staff also ran fraudulent charges on my credit card. I can prove it was Hilo, as this was the *only* time I used my cc in all of PV and the only time it was even out of my possession. I love PV, but with so many other honest fun beautiful places to go down town, the best bet is to STAY AWAY FROM HILO.
