“What a fantastic night !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I arranged to meet some Canadian friends in Captain don's for a couple of drinks .we liked the place so much that we went on our own last Thursday (27th Feb) place was buzzing . Staff very friendly even made me a special vegetarian club sandwich ,even though it wasn't on the menu . Live music was good , don't know the name of the group though .we're going back again with friends next Thursday

“Always have a good time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Always stop here during my trips to Puerto Vallarta. Always look forward to seeing Lupita the bartender. There was a new bartender named Angela this year. I enjoyed her company very much. Margaritas are delicious. Ate dinner there two nights. The pork chops and stuffed chicken breast were delicious and very reasonably priced. Enjoyed the live music there one evening. Am looking forward to my next visit.

“Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

Hit Captain Dons when they have live music. After a couple of their fantastic Margaritas, you'll think your watching a concert.
Have fun

“Friends for awhile !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Have been to PV many times and always make a point of stopping in to see Don, Jake and their staff. Great people and always good music. Live sports always on and good food. Back there in February. /14 and will be there for sure. Free phone calls to Canada and the US always a bonus. Many ex pats living down there that frequent Capt. Dons and always good for any information you may need.

“Great place to stop and have a beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

I found this place originally by searching for a sports bar close to the Buenaventura Hotel so we could watch some of the NFL playoffs. We went there to check it out and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We actually went back the next day for a few more Pacificos and something to eat. We then returned on Saturday to watch the Seahawks and Saints play. Had another great meal and enjoyed watching the football there. Ended up buying a couple of t-shirts. I would definately recommend this place to anyone in Puerta Vallarta to check it out.
