My wife and I enjoyed this place mainly because it was very secluded and it has a pool, the views are amazing but the food is very simple (maybe too simple) and service was spoty. If you are looking for a place to just be on your own and enjoy the weather and a pool we recommend, but if you are looking for an amazing experience then maybe go somewhere else.

We went for a late lunch and a swim. The barbecued pork ribs were rather sweet but tasty and the shrimp tacos were typical. The guacamole was especially good as were the margaritas. Prices are a bit higher than some similar places but the view and the pool make up for that. Shrimp tacos were under 100 pesos and the burger was reasonably priced. The staff are very nice and helpful. The infinity pool was clan and a pleasant temperature for this time of year (warm-ish but not hot) but the water level was very low. Perhaps due to a water shortage? It was about 14 inches below the pool edge making the overall depth fairly shallow .... Still very pleasant and I got in and out three times between drinks, lunch, etc.

Our hotel manager suggest we try this restaurant for late lunch. It was waaaaay out of town by La Ropa and up the hill (about a 100 peso taxi ride from town.)

The view is really phenomenal. Our waiter was completely on-top of it all. Great service. The food was tasty and super fresh. We ordered guacamole, margaritas (super strong!), tirrita (thinly sliced red onion and peppers with strips of raw fish and lime juice - YUM!), fish tacos and Cesar salad. Ah, and we finished our meal with chocolate cake (super moist!)

I would recommend this for a late lunch on a clear day.

The food and service were both excellent. The view was amazing. Spent day at the beach. The pool was a nice touch. Definitely coming back to this place.

We spent many hours by the pool drinking margaritas and cold beer. Gorgeous views from the terrace and the infinity pool. We had great steaks for lunch, cooked to perfection, tasty and tender. Great service, a nice place!
