The food was absolutely fantastic, we were t and commended it as we wanted to try some local seafood although there are other things on the menu! The octopus and calamari were amazing the best we have ever had, what fantastic flavours combined with a gorgeous setting! We will definitely try to return before we head home to the UK!!... More

My wife and 2 teenage kids spent the day at Canibal Royal. What a fantastic experience! The place is not too big, wasn't crowded and you have the option to lounge by the beach, by the restaurant or by the lounge chairs on the second floor. (Check out the view from the upper deck below). What I loved about this... More

This place is really the coolest bar in Playa del Carmen. They serve the best juices and they serve good Mexican food. I enjoyed a fresh juice with mango, strawberry, pineapple and orange juice which was delicious. Next to that I ate a tostado with seafood. I would totally recommend that one. It tastes really good. The place is located... More

My wife and I made a point of visiting Canibal Royal this trip to Playa, intent on trying places we'd not visited before. We really enjoyed our day at the beach at Canibal Royal. North of everything just a bit - and there's a lovely stretch of public beach just beyond the point with almost no beach clubs - tucked... More

We arrived at Canibal Royal a little afternoon. It was still a little quiet, so we pretty much hand picked our spot. We positioned ourselves under a palm tree and had a full viewed of the beach and water. Carlos, I think that is his name, greeted us, gave us menus and took our drink order. We took a refreshing...

Went to a Sunday day party there with DJs and people dancing. It was not over crowded and there were chairs available. Super cute beach club, but you wouldnt really swim on their beach because it is blocked off and there are boats docked there.... Enjoyed it so much that we came back at night to check out the party... More

...there is truly no more chillaxed, low pressure, great people, great food, great DJ, less ubiquitous, more laid back local friendly beach bar in all of Playa. Friends in Playa may kill me for popularising a place that I also hope never changes or becomes over commercialised but, for the visitor who doesn't judge by mass appeal and consumption, this...
