“Great View . . .”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Drinks other than beer are pricey, but it's the best view of Potrero Bay you'll find, and at night you can see all the lights in the town and on the mountainside. Very hotelly, however.

“Not bad, but I like seafood.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I want seafood when I go to a country with oceans on both sides of it. Monkey Bar had more hamburgers, chicken fingers, and the like for my palate. I had a ceviche appetizer which was good and wife had casado pescado which is a native fish dish which she enjoyed. If you are looking for an American style dive with good food this could be it (or a picky eater that only likes chicken and burgers, kids).

“Fabulous View!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

A wonderful place to unwind after a day of playing. Good service, good drinks, nice pool with swim up bar. Or just relax with your drinks and enjoy the view and sunset. Worth the hike up if you're on foot. You will certainly need the drink when you get there. An all around good atmosphere in Playa Flamingo!

“Fun place to check out in Flamingo”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Fun place with nice finger food and a great view up on a hill, which we had to WALK and it kills you.... By the time you get up there , you need to go for a swim and have a beer !!
