Attention all tourists - avoid this place at all costs, they will steal your money!!! Just for reference they ended up doubling the price on bottle of tequila that we bought and charged us 6x the price for a bottle of champagne that we bought (I specifically asked for the cheapest bottle too). Security is creepy and I heard it is controlled by a certain "secret organization"... I'll let your imagination piece that together. Go somewhere else where you won't get scammed.

Okay, you probably already know I normally haunt Huika Rooftop bar in Plaza Centro , Bucerias. Yep, the one right above Kiosko, step on up my friends. However they are closed on Mondays and several of my friends want me to accompany them to watch MNF Eagles v Chiefs. Everyone tells me that Mandala is THE spot. So...I'm in- let's doo dis' !!! Entonces we roll up. Lo and behold, before I even crawl out of the limo I see un gran chingue de damas esplendidas and I like this!!! Once inside it's open bar with magnificent drinks, welcoming atmosphere and unsurpassed service- you get whatever you desire at Mandala. I will most definitely be back. Hasta proximo Lunes Mandala... MNF week 12 Bears @ Vikings Take the Vikings by 6 pts. They've got Dak!!!
Bucerias represent!!! Diego

Agree with the reviews below. They will take a photocopy of your ID & scan it to try to commit credit card fraud!

Beware! They scam tourists regularly. Do not give them your ID or credit card. Pay in cash. We were charge over 100usd for 5 drinks that were listed at about 50usd on the menu

Like the other reviews stated, this place is a scam. My friends and I went in because we were told ladies drink for free. We each got a round of margaritas, and all paid, which is fine. But when one of the women in the group asked for her free drink, they told us that we already got the free drink, and that we now had to pay for more drinks. We got up to leave, and the bouncers blocked the entrance, saying that we had to pay for our drinks. The whole thing ended with us arguing with several bouncers for 5-10 minutes until they eventually let us leave.

If you don’t want to be scammed and trapped in the bar by bouncers, I’d recommend avoiding this place.

IF YOU ARE A TOURIST…AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!

They are HUGE scammers. They took drink orders and made us pay up front, the cost was $250 pesos for a Malibu and pineapple juice! Then when we went to leave they added those ALREADY PAID FOR DRINKS to the bill and MADE us pay for them all again before we were allowed to leave!!!!

It may look like a fun atmosphere…but ENTER WITH EXTREME CAUTION. Better yet…DON’T ENTER AT ALL!!!!! ⚠️⛔️☢️⚠️

SCAM!!!! I’ve been coming here for 15+ years. I’ve always been told to avoid malecón clubs but this trip I decided to try it because it was one of my friends 21st birthday. We go there and I ask for ONE SINGULAR VODKA CRAN!!! They bring us out a bottle. Immediately I tell them that I only ordered one drink. They tell us cuz they opened it already that we have to pay. Do not go here!!! Scam scam scam. This is a tourist scam.
There is many other bars/clubs that people can enjoy without worrying. Please do your research!!’

Just avoid this place altogether to make it easier on yourself. We got in "free" on a Sunday night with a group of 4 because a friend wanted to dance and she liked the music she was hearing. I believe we had maybe 9-10 drinks + a round of Red Bull for some of the stuff and the bill came out to over $250 USD so it's relatively pricey all things considered. There wasn't quite a way to verify the prices either so it really could just be par for the course. I guess that's a club for you. The uncomfortable part came at the end when my husband wanted to pay. They walked away with my husband's credit card AND ID for quite a while and then, when they finally got back, had him sign the receipt a couple different times to ensure the signature matched his ID. You should just be checking the name against the ID, you shouldn't need to take the ID away like that especially for that long which allows time for them to take down all his personal information. Definitely bred distrust for me.

This was a dope club vibe, the club is located on the boardwalk. The staff was attentive and amazing. The drinks were not watered down. The dj was on point, he kept the crowd going...

I will never go back to this club - it is absolutely a scam! We went for my sister’s bachelorette party and I had purchased 2 VIP tables for our large party of 19 people (the website said up to 10 people per table). When we get there, we are led up to a tiny section with two 3 ft tiny plastic grey tables and told that we have to fit 19 women into a space that should fit 5 people. It would have been physically impossible for our group to have fit in that space, and the staff just continued to argue back that that is the space I get for paying $2200 USD for two tables (advertised as the VIP tier online). You can tell that they do this often and get over on people by their lackluster response to my simple question of how they could possibly think a group of 19 people could fit in the small allotted space. In addition, their website was extremely misleading, most of the tequila options we saw were bottom shelf (we saw a lot of Jose Cuervo), most of the staff had an attitude and the fan that was above our section didn’t work on a very hot night. We ended up making the most of it but even the staff at our Airbnb let us know upon our return that Mandala is a huge scam. We ended up making the most of our time but I could not leave without documenting the troubles we experienced and hopefully preventing another group from making the same mistake that we did. Bad business is bad business.
