This is a little slice of heaven in Costa Maya.The water is crystal clear blue and the place looks just like it does on their website.
We were greated by the owner and our drink order taken. We picked which papala we wanted down by the beach and took everything in. It was absolutely GORGEOUS! The sand is soft and beautiful, the water is beautiful and the grounds are beautiful.
There is a reef out that you can swim to. The water was fairly calm and fish to be seen.
Our appetizers were AWESOME, but the food we they picked for us wasn't as tasty (chicken, shrimp, and beef tacos). I would have preferred more of the enchiladas. They were fabulous.
The restrooms are clean and they have a nice shower outside to rinse off.
There's a beautiful palm tree that overhangs on the beach for some really awesome pictures.
The dining area is nice and large. They have hammocks to be lazy in if you want, both in the sun and on the porch. The staff is very friendly.
My only complaint would be that the delivery of drinks were slow and they did not come out and ask if you wanted more. You had to go to them.
I would HIGHLY recommend this to any cruisers for an AI day in the beautiful Caribbean. Definitely worth every penny spent.
