“Valentines night on the beach”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We thought this might be a good location for a romantic valentines night dinner on the beach. The setting was romantic but that's where it stopped. The chairs on the beach were uncomfortable and not really suitable for eating from a table. There was a restricted menu available, we choose the chicken fajitas which were ok but fairly bland we had a lot better during our stay. We had good service from our waitress but we noted that other couples were not so lucky with their service. There was a group playing music of a type which was not particularly suitable for a romantic valentines night. There was also a belly dancer and a fire show which were quite entertaining, but then they started coming round for money, not what you want on this sort of night. We thought the bar might be better during the day so a few days later we went back to see, this was a big mistake most of the bar area had sun-loungers on it, the stage area had beds for massage, there was very little normal seating available on the beach. We would certainly not go back during the day.

“super beach bar, just as you wish on your holiday”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

i went there with my boyfriend on a Friday evening, it was full, but the coordinator girl was so kind, no stressy at all, we had to wait appr. 7-8 minutes and she found for us a table, outside, directly on the beach! great atmosphere, live music with high quality, with a soft touch, not loud and disturbing at all.all the service girls were smiling and the whole time very kind. great cocktails and reasonable prices. evening show with fire dance in sand in front of you, after dancing salsa or bachata-what else do you need??? we had a fantastic evening!!!

“On the Beach... Literally!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

The waves were at our feet. The chicken nachos were to die for. The live music was very good. Great atmosphere for a sunset on the beach!

“Chill place on the beach to eat, drink.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

I only review when a place is really good or really bad. This was really good. Looking for something a little different/better than the bars and restaurants along the pedestrian mall. This is on the beach and had a really good vibe (I visited at night). Fish tacos, awesome; service, excellent; my Don Julio Anejo margarita was very good...but small, so I switched to Coronas.
Whenever you travel, you like to find a place that's uniquely yours. For me, this is that place. It's unfortunate that I seldom post reviews, since I have been, like everywhere (seriously).

“disappointed :+(”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

went with friends - got a great table on the beach - the chairs are SO uncomfortable. Had the margarita drink special - very tiny glasses and I am sure they just held the tequila bottle above the glasses and didn't pout any in! So I switched to a glass of merlot because the house wine was not a great option. Tasted like I got the house wine with water added for $10.
Ordered the shrimp fajitas - the presentation was great - the taste was not - very flat. The sauces and condiments the provided didn't make any difference. I was very disappointed. The reggae music was ... well.. mexican reggae and so-so. No need to go back here. Also service could have been better - we always had to ask for a waitress. Maybe it's just too dark to see when people need drinks.
