I wanted a quiet, relaxing place to hang out on the last stop of our cruise. This place was perfect for just that. The margaritas were divine and the stuffed pineapple was the best! I am going to try and recreate it, but I'm afraid mine will be lacking. The beach was a little seaweedy, so we didn't swim, but... More

The second night we had a white fish that was being fileted that had been caught the day before. It was grilled to perfection. The third night we had a wonderful grilled shrimp dish. The fourth night was perfection. They served... More

As everyone says, you have to try the stuffed pineapple. It's really an amazing dish. The nachos are pretty good too. We arrived around 2pm and service was very slow, although everything is prepared fresh. Their 'Plato de Ninos' is grilled chicken breast with choice of side dish (next time I'd ask for it without the coleslaw - which is... More

The owner brought out the catch of the day, a striped sea bass. I'm so glad we took his suggestion. It was fantastic, as were the spicey coleslaw -yum - and potatoe salad. It may sound ordinary, but the side dishes were elevated to amazing.

Sophisticated menu. Quiet. Great drinks. Try the stuffed pineapple and the papaya bake. Great food. Worth the 3 minutes bumpy ride outside of town.

Our friends are staying at this amazing little hotel, while we are staying down the street. Last evening, we all met for dinner, and all I can say is: "Wow!!!" The stuffed pineapple (with chicken, rice, coriander and other incredible spices) was one of the most terrific dishes that any of us have ever had (and we are all seasoned... More

Maya Luna is an incredible experience. Outdoor dining in front of the Caribbean sea. Fresh fish from the sea with best salad ever! Wonderful hosts. A great experience. Carolien and Jan make you feel like you are at home and never want to leave.

We rented a house, and our first night there we went to Maya Luna for dinner at sunset. Palapa patio and a cold beer, a good combo anytime... our family of four had octopus, coco shrimp, stuffed pineapple, and seafood soup, and everything was well prepared and quite tasty. Interesting influences Coco, Curry, and Sambal, all blended in different methods.... More
