Once again we tried to catch some beach time today at La Palapa and had some of the worst service we've ever experienced. Same as the last time we tried this spot. Tough to get any attention from our waiter the "guy in the blue shirt". He dropped off a menu but didn't see him again for over an hour and while trying to order a smoothie he acted rude for simply asking him if he had any bananas. "I have no idea". So many other great choices in the same area. We picked up our stuff and headed down to El Be for some breakfast. Simple solution. Won't be back.

2 for 1 drinks on the beach We enjoyed the tempura shrimp and shrimp cocktail with our drinks and split a Caesar salad with shrimp. Great meal but not cheap.

Wonderful food, beautiful tables right on the beach!!! The street vendors walking around trying to sell things were annoying at first, but they were respectful when we said we were not interested. We were there on a Monday night and there was a Fire Dancer. He was AMAZING!!!!

Great, friendly service, good food! Go right from the beach to your table and watch the sunset while you eat & drink! Very relaxed and casual, but with 1st class service!
