“Third Time and Best Yet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

The Indigo Beach experience starts with settling into a chair on the beach, umbrellas immediately adjusted to your liking by the staff, and the menu perusal. There is plenty of variety at breakfast and amazing fresh fish at lunchtime, not to mention world class pizzas, pastas, burgers, ceviches, you name it. The excellent servers are anxious to personalize dishes because it's all cooked to order. Looking forward to my fourth visit, some fine day!

“Thanksgiving Dinner at Indigo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Great place for breakfast, lunch, or just hanging out on the beach. We ate there as a family of 7 several times during our trip to Playa. Every time our service was outstanding and the food very good. Hugo and his muchachos were always quick to place a new beach umbrella just as the sun was about to shine in your eyes!

And Thanksgiving dinner, on the beach, sand between your toes, awesome turkey and stuffing and dried apple pie... What could be better!?! A special shout out to Hugo, who took care of us every single day. He even stayed after his usual shift to take care of us on Thanksgiving because our kids loved him and requested him by name.

“Best Lunch of the trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

While breakfast at Indigo was included with our stay, we opted to have our fish from our deep sea fishing trip prepared by the magnificent chefs of Indigo Beach. They were seasoned perfectly and accompanied by rice, potatoes and a vegetable medley.

Our breakfast each day was marvelous as well...can you can't be that ocean view! Service was top-notch!

“Always room for improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

I must say that we weren't too impressed with this place. We gave it several chances but it always seemed to be the same story. Service, Service, Service. Although the staff were really nice, they always seemed to be overwhelmed and not on point. If they weren't directly on the beach I would have avoided this place the second and third time around. I'm not sure if it is a management or a logistical error or if they are simply understaffed but whatever it is I hope they try to improve because this place has great potential.

“Best food and service in Playa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

This restaurant kicked butt in every category! The breakfast, lunch and dinners we had here were unbelievable!!! In 11 days, we managed to try nearly everything on the menu and we were never disappointed! We didnt even want to eat anywhere else… the hamburgers were out of this world, so was the seafood and pasta! We enjoyed sitting in their beach loungers and having drinks served to us from sun up til sun down. The lemon drop martinis were to die for! A huge shout out to Pedro, Joaquin, Hugo and more! The servers here were outstanding! Pedro & Joaquin were the bomb…those boys could not have been better! Every waiter was genuinely nice and gracious beyond words. Everytime we had food anywhere else in Playa, my husband & I said…we should have just gone to Indigo :) The atmosphere was also great….good music, great view of the ocean, and fantastic people watching. I would not change 1 single thing about this restaurant / beach club. I will be back to Mexico every year to stay at Porto Playa and live at this beach club! I would encourage everyone to eat here…you wont be disappointed.
