If you go to Playa del Carmen and you like to drink a good cocktail with sea view I would totally recommend this place. We really enjoyed drinking something here. We had margarita's and mojitos. They were awesome. The waiters are very friendly and everyday there is a Mexican band playing music. When you want to eat a snack I... More

I went there with my friend this past weekend and the service was super slow. You practically had to bed to get something. After having 3 "cubos" of beer the pictured server came back with our check with only 2 on there. He said he had accidentally had charged me for two, but to go ahead and pay him for... More

We came by after taking a swim at Dos Ojos Cenote and were not disappointed. The buffet was very good and takes the cake for most guacamole and ceviche I've ever seen in one place save for a Costco. The music was very good and the free outdoor beach seating was great. The mix drinks and beer were also decent.

Had a great lunch here in July. They have live music most days starting at 1:00 and drink specials. Service was good and food was good as always. The queso fundido was yummy and they surprisingly had crunchy tacos, which you normally do not find in Mexico.

Stumbled on Wah Wah by accident when looking for somewhere to crash on a sunlounger as we arrived in PDC. This place seems popular with both Mexican tourists as well as foreigners and I can see why! Staff are friendly, attentive and service is quick. The sun loungers are decent and they don't charge you if you order something. Prices... More
