This bar has the perfect location on a beautiful part of the beach in Playa. You can relax in an umbrella covered chaise as long as you order food or drinks. They offer live music off and on through out the day. It's a good place for a cold beer. On the down side, the service is iffy. Sometimes it's... More

I looked at this place among a few others and decided it had good reviews so we would eat dinner there. When we arrived and sat, it was not busy but we waited for a long time to get waited on and then we waited a long time for our drinks. We both had sangria drinks which the first was... More

This place is like an Oasis in the sun. Whether brunch on Sunday or drinks throughout the day really a special place in Playa. Don't forget to check out the band especially on Thursday's and Saturday's.

Stayed nearby and visited this bar daily. Special mention to Christopher who always welcomed us so warmly each day. The concept of this bar is really cool. You can sit at the bar inside with your feet in the sand.. Or obviously outside on the beach itself. They also have sun loungers which you are free to use for the... More

We ate here as part of our excursion with Cancun Adventures. We had a table on the beach at sunset. The food was good, but the service and drinks were average. They has 80's rock music playing which I personally enjoyed. I did enjoy everything and I would eat here again.
