“Absolutely relaxing after a long stroll on the beach. The service is fantastic. I'd recommend it highly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

This beach bar restaurant makes you feel at home with their exceptional service. The servers make it a habit to get to know everybody by name and they will remember you when you return which makes everything quite personal.

“Beach club on Federal land”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Beachs in Mexico are public to 50 meters from the high water mark. ETC is basically in a public beach. They are ridiculously expensive and mediocre in their food. I live in Vallarta and went with visiting friends to see what all the hoopla was about. If you are here for a week and never been to PV it's your kind of place. I go to other better beach bars at 1/2 the price. I don't like to tip 15% for bad service. I tip 20% for good service. Not a place ex-pats or locals go to. Save your money,go to Punta Mita or Bucerias.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

A short walk from Marival, Dreams, Grand Velas resorts on the beach. Great place to dig your feet in the sand, watch the sunset, have a drink and an appetizer before dinner. Excellent staff and food!

The service is so poor, the price of a limone so expensive. The place is nice but its annoying to charge you the tips to your bill when the services sucks.
