“Wonderful!”
Review of The Black Pearl - CLOSED

The Black Pearl
Price range: $4 - $17
Description: Beach front restaurant/bar with an extensive drink menu served by one of the best bartenders in town! Buy an open bar pass, try our "Amberita margarita", cheese garlic salsa, ceviches, schedule a snorkel excursion or diving from our beach, go for a swim, use the free WI-FI or read a good book and listen to music while lying on a padded lounger. Do you prefer shade or sun? We also have live music jam nights and am looking forward to el primer Festival Internacional Mahahual: Cruzando Fronteras Mexico-Italia. During our temporary transition, we are referring some patrons to Oxtankah located in the center of the malecon. Snorkeling excursions start at $25 per person.

I passed through Mahahual on my way down the coast, and happend upon the Black Pearl. I just loved it! I would definitely recommend Black Pearl to anyone who happens to be in the area. The food was fresh and flavorful. The service was friendly and courteous. The atmosphere was laid back and fun!

My husband and I were on a cruise ship and made an unexpected port call in Costa Maya. We decided to take a shuttle bus ($3 per person) to the village of Mahahual after reading reviews of the beach there. We were dropped off along a strip of beach with many beachfront restaurants all haggling for the tourists to relax at their part of the beach. We kept walking until we saw a beautiful strip of beach with padded chairs. The restaurant that owned that strip of beach was called The Black Pearl, and the waiter enticed us to relax there with a complimentary shot of tequila and use of the lounge chairs for free with purchase of a drink. We lounged on the beach for hours and our waiter treated us very well, replenishing our drinks and making sure we had everything we needed. Eventually we moved to a table and ordered nachos, and they were the best we had ever tasted. The Black Pearl was a wonderful surprise and a great place to spend our day in Costa Maya.
