The drinks are very good and the staff is really friendly. We came here twice while we were staying in the Andaz Papagayo. The Andaz provides a free shuttle to and from the Marina so we took advantage of that. The food is reasonably priced...More

You dine on the water in the Marina, the food has wonderful flavor and the drinks are generous. It is a small casual venue. Great for happy hour

We took the shuttle from the shuttle from the Andaz (runs once an hour on the hour) to the Dive Bar on the Marina for a casual lunch after a scuba lesson in the morning. Not a lot of tables but it wasn't crowded at...More

While the Andaz has good food, it can't compete with the daily specials and drinks at the Dive Bar for value. This was the best value we had at any restaurant during our week in Costa Rica.

A good place to sit down and relax after a round of golf. The Dive Bar is right next to the marina. There is ample parking and a good shady open area for protection from the sun or rain. The Nacho's were fantastic. My son...More

I am not sure. I wanna say we went on a weekend for dinner. But with the marina right there, boats are always come in and out. So I would believe they have plenty of hours. But I can't be for certain. Sorry. Chris
