We tried dinner at this place. It was a little bit tricky to find, but it was worth it. Great views of the bay from the deck. We ordered piña coladas - we've had plenty better on this trip so I would skip that and...More

The only reason I gave it a 3 the service was super slow and I was there with four other tables. The food on the other hand was awesome, the fresh mahi with mango salsa!!

Food was fantastic and wait staff was really friendly! I had the chicken mofango which was amazing! The restaurant is right on the beach and the view is really pretty.

Everything about this place was perfect! The staff, the food, the ambiance, and the restaurant was very uniquely built. Right on the oceanfront. Drinks were very good and the ceviche was out of this world!

We made the 15 minute walk from the Water Club to La Playita for lunch. You walk through a very small hotel and restaurant is in back. It sits directly on the water. We ate there on a Saturday around 1:30 and there was only...More

There's not much to chose from at Isla Verde for beach bars. Playita benefits from having great views from the bar restaurant. The prices are bit more than you would pay at a normal bar as it is a hotel but not unreasonable, hence average...More

They valet park. I would let them park the car for you rather than attempt to park it on your own unless they instruct you to do so. The roads are narrow and not all streets allow cars to be parked on. We walked from our... More
