One of the few places on the beach to have live music every afternoon. Margaritas are sweet with a good amount of tequila. Staff were friendly. Washrooms smelly and dirty. Ocean was full of seaweed. Did not eat there.

My wife got a margarita for 100pesos, and it was similar to the watered down cocktails you get at AI pool bars. Food was not bad. The service was good.

Well, that may be because I found this place on my first trip to Playa and have never wanted to go anywhere else! While it does have some service issues (it can take a while to both place an order and to get a beer open) the relaxed atmosphere with the bands in the background make for a great day.... More

Great service, tasty food & delicious drinks. Marvin made sure our food & drink were served promptly. Live music at a beach bar + awesome service = Solid experience! Fish tacos are a must. Guac is epic.
