After reading the rave reviews before a recent cruise, I decided to take the family out to Mahahual for a short beach day. I didn't make a reservation but that didn't matter. There was four of us (2 adults, 2 small children) and we had no issue getting a couple of chaise loungers, a table and umbrella. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The beach was clean and beautiful and had all the amenities we could ask for. The wife enjoyed a relaxing massage on the beach while the kids played and I kicked back with some Corona's. The food was excellent and everything was reasonably priced. Steve even came out to greet us during our stay and all I can say is what a great guy. He very genuine and welcoming and you can tell he takes great pride in his place and it shows. While we were there, you could see the difference between the Tropicante and the rest of the beach side spots that line the coast. The others were ghost towns while the Tropicante was busy. That has to say something especially with two boats in port at the same time.
This place is a gem and we can't wait to get back for a longer stay at this gem. Thanks Steve!!
P.S. If taking a cab, be wary that drivers may in fact try to tell you that the place is out of business or that Steve was killed! Crazy but true. My advice would be is to have the cab drop you in the heart of Mahahual and walk the STREET to Tropicante. If you walk the beach side path, prepare for the onslaught of other aggressive spots trying to get your business which can be quite annoying.
