With proximity to the pool, Punta Bonita was our lunchtime respite pretty much every day of our stay. The food is extremely fresh and the margaritas are fantastic.

We also visited for dinner - which was excellent. The night we visited (a Saturday) there was a mariachi band strolling table to table. Table to table musicians usually aren't my thing but these guys were so talented, enthusiastic and engaging, we were sorry to see them move to the next table.

And service was, of course, outstanding.

We came back just for dinner while we stayed this time at another hotel. The food again was outstanding, especially the soft shell crab sandwich and the trio of ceviches. So flavorful and and delicious. Service as always better than one can imagine, they remembered our favorite drinks and prepared special margaritas for us. I think this is the best Mexican Food in the Rivera Maya. They also have a great selection of Mexican Wines!!

This time I came back to the hotel and my best experience was at this lovely restaurant while I enjoyed the best dinner as the waiter who take care of me and Oscar the Manager made sure I had an excellent service. I must say this is the Best Mexican food I have had, as I fondly recommend the rib eye with chili crusted. Yes I know it sounds difficult to eat but it's not! It is amazing how they manage to combine a chili not to cause stomach damages. I really recommend visiting and also ask for a Golden Margarita. Can't wait to come back!

Superb service by Italia Rodriguez and her colleagues..especially the wine tasting and advice. The wine was excellent. Fish was heavenly but steak just a bit tough - as it often is in Playa. (My Alberta roots areshowing) Sides were cooked just right and presentation artistic.
Due to the often prestigious guests security might be in evidence but the upside of that is you never know who you might be sitting next to.
