I love have dinner with my feet in the sand on the beach. Atmosphere was wonderful and food was excellent. Our waiters Gilberto and Hugo took excellent care of us and were very attentive without being annoying

Hands down the best location's for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Everyone should try this place once while visiting. Service is 100% professional. Breakfast is a work of art, dinner is by far a perfect place for a romantic dinner. At night the place becomes magical.

A very clean and classy looking place on the beach, especially considering the other bars there. Everyone in town knows it and can point you to it. You go here for the experience...sunset on the beach, nice lighting, excellent service, live band placing local tunes....More

Yes, they do continue to serve on the beach. As far as staying on the beach, for a day of leisure, I cannot confirm that for you. I've not leveraged them for that service. However there are many others that do offer... More
