One of the few places on the beach to have live music every afternoon. Margaritas are sweet with a good amount of tequila. Staff were friendly. Washrooms smelly and dirty. Ocean was full of seaweed. Did not eat there.

My wife got a margarita for 100pesos, and it was similar to the watered down cocktails you get at AI pool bars. Food was not bad. The service was good.

Great service, tasty food & delicious drinks. Marvin made sure our food & drink were served promptly. Live music at a beach bar + awesome service = Solid experience! Fish tacos are a must. Guac is epic.
