And this place did not disappoint. The setting was perfect and the hospitality was top shelf! We ordered the Thai Lobster bites for appetizers- Delish! For entrees, we ordered Langosta al Ajillos and Paella Belize. Would definitely recommend this place!! 🦞🦞

We are staying only 346 feet from Aji ‘s so went there on our first nite here! What a winner! Excellent food, drinks and wait staff, but the setting is almost the best part. Wonderful place and we love Pablo!

Aji has a great menu and service. After hearing another patron say she dreamed of the paella, it had to be tried and boy was she right!! If you were like us & traveling with a group, try the pitcher of sangria too!

Stayed at Bella Vista and ate at Aji for dinner twice. Breakfast every morning and happy hour snacks and drinks a couple times. All were fantastic!

Our adult family literally stumbled into Aji’s by accident this week. We were originally headed for Pacos, but that seemed like a sketchy beachfront bar. So, we ended up at Aji’s instead and were happy we did. (They are open on Tuesday nights now) Red...More

We really enjoyed dinner here. Park your cart on the street and take a little stroll through trees, over a bridge, and discover the bar/restaurant right on the beach. The food, service and ambience are all fabulous.
