“Classy food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Superb service by Italia Rodriguez and her colleagues..especially the wine tasting and advice. The wine was excellent. Fish was heavenly but steak just a bit tough - as it often is in Playa. (My Alberta roots areshowing) Sides were cooked just right and presentation artistic.
Due to the often prestigious guests security might be in evidence but the upside of that is you never know who you might be sitting next to.

“Really amazing and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The food here is absolutely amazing. This is by far, hands down, no dispute, my favorite restaurant in riviera maya. The service is excellent, and you get what you pay for. If you go you have to taste the lobster tacos, the fresh and spicy margarita also ask for the catch of the day, superb food and service. The sea view from the terrace ends up giving a true cuinary experience. For sure I will be back!!!

I just spent last week at Rosewood Mayakoba, I had lunch and dinner at Punta Bonita it was excellent. Food flavors, presentation, service all up to the 7 star quality of Rosewood all over the world! a do not miss dining opportunity on the Riviera Maya. The location on the side of the ocean front pool is superb to creat the ambiance that creates the perfect total experience.

“Taco Night - Wow.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The best dining experience we had in Mexico. Our Butler recommended the Taco night, its 45,- $ per person and as much Tacos you can eat. The setting is amazing, right by the beach, outddors and Mariachis were playing live music. The service was so attentive, simply great. They also have a very good selection of Mexican wines, which are surprisingly good.
We had a great dinner, if your looking for great Mexican food in an amazing athmosphere Punta Bonita is yoru place!
