Awesome place for drinks, fare price.. However the lobster is tip top. The cocktails are good enough for 100 pesos.. And the staff is always wiling to help. You can be at the beach and enjoy a good drink at the same time.

Cool place just at the beach inside the hotel Mawinbi. Food is good but nothing spectacular. The only good thing about having lunch here is that you actually seat at the beach, but nothing else. Calamari was good but thats it.

Hidden behind the resort of the same name, is this jewel of a seaside restaurant. An open palapa covers the dining area and bar all set in the fine beach sand. During the rainy season, it is suggested to sit under a ceiling fan to...More

We really liked the cool relaxed feel of this tiny bar on the beach, we actually came twice! Ordered micheladas, guacamole, chips, tacos, the food was so good, so cheap, the setting is so casual and the sunset beautiful. Do not miss it!

If you look for a quiet, peaceful and romantic beach to spend the day, welcome to Mawimbi beach. The beach is cleaned everyday (just a few dark sea algae in the water), deck chairs, mattress, hammocks are very comfortable. There are only a few available...More

The restaurant is as much for our guests as for external clients. Note that the hotel is closed now. We will open on October 13. Greetings.
