Great seafood close to beach and with friendly and excellent service by our waiter Jairo :)
I would definitely recommend the succulent octopus dish for a quick and satisfying lunch.

Nice atmosphère

Food was delicious with a nice atmosphere. Expect a long wait, especially on weekends. Servers are very kind but in no rush.

Excellent place, Yosleidy is the best ever! He is friendly and provides excellent service. Every time I come, I ask for him to be my waiter. He’s just great always with a smile on his face.

Great service, clean areas.
The beach is great but needs some cleaning at the kids' area of the beach.
It is 20 dollars for minimum consumption per adult and 10 for kids. You will use every bit of it. Free after 5 pm. Just keep in mind that it is a tourist place.

The drinks, the first one was water down but the staff changed it for us.
Beer is your best choice and drinks Presidente, it is a local pilsner beer and it is 5 dollars. Keep in mind that you can get it at a local store for a dollar or less (can beer)

As much as people complain about the price and food, keep in mind that it is a beach restaurant, it is not the four seasons.

For the 20 dollars, it was a relaxing afternoon and I expend 150 dollars for snacks, lunch, and drinks for two adults and a child. (several drinks for all, including water, beers, mojitos, and Pina Coladas.

From 9 am to 530 pm, not bad for 20 dollars.

Outside of that, I could not make it an everyday

Fun water sports and beautiful beaches
Nov 2019
We went to Playa Blanca in the late afternoon while it was pretty hot. The kids wanted to do some kind of water activity. There were many options: paddle boarding, snorkeling, banana boat, etc. which were not very expensive for a 1 hr rental (~$20/hr). The kids chose paddle boarding and they had their own personal instructor. The instructors were very good and patient with the kids, considering it was their first time paddle boarding; the waters were beautiful. We also ate lunch there - good prices and delicious foods. We got passion fruit juices and lots of seafood. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Ugh!

I tried to go meet my friends but they said I have to pay a minion of $30 to access the beach. That price goes toward food and drink. My friends enjoyed themselves. Maybe next time

Bad Service. Overpriced.
Aug 2019 • Couples
OVERALL: Bad Service. Overpriced. Will not return.

Our Trip Advisor reviews are reserved for praising and highlighting great service. However, we feel obligated to warn others.

THE SET-UP: Our Airbnb host recommended this beach for our last day before flying back to DC. We paid $30 per person for admissions (goes towards restaurant expense)...fine.
We got to the beach... can we say gorgeous?! Corals here and there..wear water shoes. Beautiful sight! Calm waters. Natural resources here are not lacking beauty!! It’s a Tuesday, six servers, four bartenders, and about 60 customers (adults and children). Super laid back atmosphere.

We get to the beach chairs.. zero hassle. We find two quickly.

THE SERVICES and PRODUCTS: Terrible service. Drinks? Watered down sugary drinks. We asked for another drink. An hour later..No drink. Called over another server( where did the first server go?) Lost trust.. asked for a simple coke on the rocks. Can’t mess that up, right?

Server returns quickly. Server comes back with Coke, personal questions and assumptions about origin, etc. HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL.

We are extremely disappointed and embarrassed for this establishment. The place is so beautiful but their staff is ruining it!

We also gathered that if you’re staying here you have a wrist band. Different treatment?? Perhaps if you book lodging here, you might be treated differently. Maybe!

Carlos, server in the white guayabera (Cuban shirt) saved the evening at about 5:30pm. Thank you! Decent service.

COST: We order a Coke and two adequate appetizers (fried sample plate and boiled lobster chucks over greens). $60 gone.

Fun day at the beach!
Apr 2019 • Family
Our group of three families enjoyed driving our golf carts there and arriving at the beautiful beach. On Sunday they had two land based blow ups and one water based blow up that started at 1pm, cost 12 pp but the kids enjoyed it! Loved the fun Playa Blanca sign and the swing at the bar. We arrived around 10 on Sunday and were able to get chairs with umbrellas beach front. Another week day we got there around 11:30 and same thing. Not very crowded at all. The water is shallow, had to go out passed some coral to do some snorkeling, but not a lot to see. Drinks and lunch were reasonably priced. They had a couple of tour boats come in and it really did not impact our visit. Kite surfing, scuba diving looked available next door, but we did not partake. We also walked to the Westin beach from there, so we were about to walk on the beach. Wilson our bartender was great and remembered by name when we came back later in the week!
