“Great way to spend the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

They expect you to spend approx
20$ for your good/drinks. For that
you get lounge chairs as well. Right on the beach!
Food is very good. Over a few visits
we had mini hamburgers with blue
cheese grilled onions .. Yummy
Shrimp tacos , grilled chicken salad was excellent. Staff great . Each time left happy.

This place is a cool beach bar. The DJ plays very nice music. The food is good and not expensive. The atmosphere very cool. Service is great. I think it is one of the best places in playa del carmen on the beach side

“Chill!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We stumbled upon this place while going for an afternoon walk on the beach. What a great find. Absolutely relaxing atmosphere with some chilled out deep house beats to make it a perfect afternoon. Try the guacamole!

“Best beach bar I have ever been to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Great music. Staff has coolest clothes. Pina colada comes in a plastic pineapple. Unfortunately their beach is being swept away but still so worth a visit. Try the Arrachera tacos!

“I loved this beach club”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

One year we stayed at the all-inclusive next door to it and I remember thinking it was an “interesting” looking place, but I never tried it out at the time. This winter we stayed at a small hotel in town and spent two of our beach days at Canibal Royale. There is no charge for the chairs, but you have to spend at least $150 pesos per person on food and drink. We didn’t think this was too unreasonable. Prices are on the high side but not outrageous. I thought the mixed drinks were quite high. Buckets of beer were decent. Food was very good so I didn’t think the prices were bad considering what you get. The beach itself is very nice and swimmable. What I loved most about this beach club was the funky décor (lots of great photo spots if you’re into that, which I am!) and the beautiful little pool up on the top level.
