They take care of all of your needs for your day at the beach! They rent beach chairs, umbrellas, serve endless drinks and food! They even have water sports!

Nice location, and some of the employees seem very nice. They had live music on Friday evenings during our stay in March, and they open around 8AM every day. We walked by this place every day from our hotel. We sat down on our first day for beers just after lunch time and held menus in our hands for a... More

They are good for either breakfast or lunch but nothing special. For breakfast they offer a continental or full breakfast. Can't give a high rating as it is Beach bar and doesn't really stand out.

There's nothing like sitting on a cabana with a bottle of wine and some tapas or an entre. The restaurant is under new management and their menu has expanded to include tasty treats like a dozen types of pizzas, escargot, and a host of other delicious tasting treats. I really enjoyed their food.

A great bottle of wine and a nice afternoon. We had an appetizer and the Island Salad which was awesome. The beach is crystal clear water and soft sand. Highly recommend. FYI the southern side is nudist...enjoy or bypass.

We had a late lunch of burgers and fries and it hit the spot. The staff was friendly and pleasant and the food was very good. We would certainly go back for another late lunch or an early dinner.

We've eaten lunch a few times this year at La Playa and have been very pleased with both the service and the food. The menu is extensive with an assortment of burgers, pizzas, appetizers, salads, and entrees. Everything we've ordered has been great! Today I ordered the vegetarian wrap and my husband had the lobster salad. The wrap came with... More
