We have holidayed in Playa Blanca twice a year for a few years now and often stop off at either the Jungle or the Irish Bar. Both bars and the Olive Tree restaurant are all positioned next to each other and are under the same management, and are in a great location. The Irish ‘Harp’ bar has just reopened after a refit. We have always found the staff friendly and hard working, they even remember us. On this holiday we were not impressed with the big price increase, they have never been cheap bars to drink in, but this was a supprise. When we were there in October four gin & tonics were 20 euros, now 24 which is way too much when you consider the supermarkets sell a bottle of gin at 5 euros. Let’s not go mad and say the extra cost is for the entertainment, the music is ok but a bit lazy, the three musicians play both bars twice a week doing exactly the same songs, even if they are not on at one bar you can hear them in the other. We have always given the staff a good tip but at these prices it makes a night out quite expensive. I feel the management have become a little greedy and this may backfire. Many of the hotels in Playa Blanca are now all inclusive and I don’t think people will be tempted to go into bars to pay these kind of prices every night, there is a noticeable decrease already, in the past these bars were very busy but this time they were very quiet. If the economy is struggling, are exorbitant price increases the answer? In my opinion no, people will look for the best deals. Are we paying for the bar refit? A dissatisfied customer could be one lost forever, manager take note.

“Good place for cocktails”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Situated in Papagayo Center, this is one of my favourite bars. Good cocktails, very good service, good location with sea views . Good for romance or families/groups, the atmosphere here is very relaxed, day or night time. Definitely, highly recommended.

“So cool!! From cocktail to cocktail!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

We love this place. It's situated on the front of the beach in playa blanca. It has love music most nights, French men singin English rock, one man bands, lady solo artists.. Just brilliant. Not the ordinary bar, they serve you from your table, no need to cue up at the bar, they come straight to you. !!! They have fantastic cocktails, pink panther was my fave but at 6.50€ each it's easy to get carried away. Though this I the usual price for cockrails around here. Beer is much cheaper. For those that don't tolerate spirits well, be careful if you have a vodka and coke or baileys as so on... They don't measure anything !! They just pour it in until you say stop !!! Very strong drinks!! Could be bad or good, depends on the type of night you want.. This turns into a night club after around 12pm.. With uv lights and girls dressed in next to nothin!! Wicked bar !! We keep going back.
