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...

I had one of the best moments of my life with my wife,my kids and friends. There's an amazing mood on the place. Great chill music just a few feet away from the beach. The food is just delicious.

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...

Brought here by a local. Fun little hidden place on the beach! Sat with our toes in the sand. Good lunch and drinks. Great views of the ocean and fun atmosphere. Very close to 5th avenue.

We stop here for lunch every time we go to elements as its right beside the resort. The first time service was mediocre the food was fine. The second time the service was great and the food was up a notch. Shrimp burger always a winner.

Great atmosphere right on the beach! Live band and great service. Hidden treasure. We thought this place was closed, but ended up being our favorite joint.

Such a nice moment ! Kind and careful service, delicious meals and so nice view on the sea ! Peaceful place with lounge music. Adapted for family. Not in downtown, could be reached by walk. Quite expensive but it's worth it. Recommend it !
