“Great view, and good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

I visited Aqua Sport on my recent trip to Playa Hermosa. It is right on the beach, so it has a great view of the ocean. We ordered the ceviche, and the fish tacos. They were both delicious! The flavor of the fish was perfect, and the pineapple salsa was a great complement to the fish. The atmosphere was romantic in the evening because of hanging lights and a tree swing. I would recommend visiting Aqua Sport!

“So so experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

While my non-alcoholic blended fruit smoothie was delicious my husband's mojito (according to him) had no alcohol in it even though he had ordered it "as is" with alcohol. He even had to ask the server if there was alcohol in it to be sure they didn't mess up the order but they insisted there was. We ordered fries as we just wanted a snack and they were very average as well. The location directly on the beach was great and they had a fun swing that kinds were playing on. Overall I would say our experience was pretty average. The food and beverages were o.k. As a spot on this small beach it was a good find.

“Great Snapper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The grilled (whole) red snapper was so good we ate it twice while there. The kitchen will remove the head before serving if you request. Watch for the bones, but if you are careful you can pull the spine out almost whole It's just a very casual place on the beach, but the best snapper I've had in years. I took it down from five stars to four because of service. Slow (even for Costa Rica) and one night was a very good server, the other night was a very poor server. Good cocktails. If you are staying nearby (we were) be careful walking - the beach is very dark and the road didn't go all the way to our hotel so we ended up in a deserted area, alone in the dark. I had a flashlight but felt uncomfortable because there appeared to be people hanging out in the public park without any lights.

“Best mojito and red snapper I've ever had...and right on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We had the best mojitos we have ever had here. The whole red snapper was amazing. Enjoyed this on the beach with a great atmosphere and live music during sunset! The prices are reasonale for the area (touristy) but well worth what we recieved.

“Great view good music and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Stopped by to enjoy a few cocktail watch the sunset and eat dinner our first night in Playa Hermosa. We enjoyed it so much that we went back a second time. The food was very good especially the Red Snapper and the live music on Saturday night was an added bonus. Beautiful sunset view while lounging in adirondack chairs and drinking margaritas what's not to like.
