They expect you to spend approx
20$ for your good/drinks. For that
you get lounge chairs as well. Right on the beach!
Food is very good. Over a few visits
we had mini hamburgers with blue
cheese grilled onions .. Yummy
Shrimp tacos , grilled chicken salad was excellent. Staff great . Each time left happy.

This place is a cool beach bar. The DJ plays very nice music. The food is good and not expensive. The atmosphere very cool. Service is great. I think it is one of the best places in playa del carmen on the beach side

We stumbled upon this place while going for an afternoon walk on the beach. What a great find. Absolutely relaxing atmosphere with some chilled out deep house beats to make it a perfect afternoon. Try the guacamole!

Great music. Staff has coolest clothes. Pina colada comes in a plastic pineapple. Unfortunately their beach is being swept away but still so worth a visit. Try the Arrachera tacos!

One year we stayed at the all-inclusive next door to it and I remember thinking it was an “interesting” looking place, but I never tried it out at the time. This winter we stayed at a small hotel in town and spent two of our beach days at Canibal Royale. There is no charge for the chairs, but you have to spend at least $150 pesos per person on food and drink. We didn’t think this was too unreasonable. Prices are on the high side but not outrageous. I thought the mixed drinks were quite high. Buckets of beer were decent. Food was very good so I didn’t think the prices were bad considering what you get. The beach itself is very nice and swimmable. What I loved most about this beach club was the funky décor (lots of great photo spots if you’re into that, which I am!) and the beautiful little pool up on the top level.
