Stop by on our way back from "Cueva Ventana". Had the octopus as appetizer and mofongo with shrimps for main plate. Very good. The property has a nice open terrance with a nice view to the beach (not good for swimming). Very friendly waiters.

Appreciate your time and visit, we are very sorry your experience was not what expected. Dirty is not fair, hope you would have been more specific. Terrible ambiance, that is too broad of an opinion. Sorry the leaks occurred, something we are currently working on....More
