i always get excellent service from armando. he goes above and beyond in the midst of trying to get customers to sit in a lounger (seems they all do) to attract business, he is always available for food and beverage service. it's funny to see them run out before the other establishments get to passerby's first. but rent is due and bills need to be paid. this place is steps away from the hotel i stay at, making it convenient to get a bite and chill. i'd come here everyday if the loungers were in the likes of kool and coco maya = cushioned and lie flat. the beach is very swimmable that attract a lot of the locals.

This is a great place to hang out, have a beer and listen to some music. Live music early evenings, Thurs - Sat. Crowded with gringos from North Central USA and Canada, the staff all speak English and the drinks are strong and cheap. There are better places to eat but this is the place to drink.

We were staying at an iberostar all-inclusive resort south of Playa. We went into town and came across Bad Boy Beach Bar. We saw the massage tables first! 60 minute massages for $20! On the beach! They had Coco Locos in fresh coconuts and the service was fabulous!! You can sit in the beach chairs and be served drinks and food by very a friendly staff! Look for the black skull and crossbones flag on the beach and you know you are at the right place!! We will be back!

We fell across BBBB last year when we stopped at Playa del Carmen on the way back to our resort after a trip to Tulem. Trev so great to talk to that we just had to come back this year.

We came out on Thursday to listen to the absolutely awesome Bad Boys Band and were treated like old friends by Trey and Kirsty. The bar is in a fabulous location right on the sands with a view to die for. As they close early ( they are good neighbours) we were invited out by the staff to another bar where we had some drinks and made new friends.

Bad Boys is not the fanciest bar on the beach but it is the best - no shoes, no shirt, no problem. Get off your all inclusive resort and pay them a visit. We will be back next year for that trip to Cozumel and the jeep ride Trey - Sam can't wait!

Good, fun place to hang out. Look at the ocean and have a drink. Very comfortable. Like sitting in someone's living room, they make you feel that comfortable.
