“Fantastic restaurant in a fantastic hotel”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Fantastic restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Really comprehensive menu and very attentive staff. The sunset view is stunning from the terrace. Celebrated my wife's birthday here last week and we were really looked after by our waiter who could not do enough for us and had time to stop and chat even though it was really busy.

“Delicious Food and Great Service”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

My husband and I had a fantastic dinner at Baleens. We dined on the patio and watched the gorgeous sunset which made the night so special. The food was delicious and the service was great. We had a great bottle of wine which the sommelier helped us select. The food, service and view were so good we ate several more meals there during our stay.

Went with friends on a Sunday for lunch. Always heard good things about La Playa and was very curious to try it. The food and servìce was wonderful. Would definitely return for more good food on the beach.
