Visited here this past week and loved it! On the "other side" of Cozumel, it's a gem with great views, drinks and service. It's a bit worn from the weather over the last few years, but definitely worth a stop and a drink!

Over the last several years I have seen this place slowly be taken by the sea. Nice people, cold beer, and decent food. In a few years it will be gone.

Love the food - service - margaritas! Beautiful setting on the ocean!!! It is a little bit of a drive from the port but well worth it!

My only complaint is they close too early! Probably for those who come on cruise ships, but the food, drinks, and view are wonderful. You feel a bit off the grid but it's awesome.

This place is a bit of a drive, but worth it! It is right on the ocean with beautiful views. The drinks are great. Their small margarita is what I would call a large back home. Food and service were excellent. We went twice during...More

The setting was impressive, the service was very good....... The food and drinks were expensive and nothing to shout about... Other than the cost! Definitely taking advantage of the tourist. ..... No showers to wash yourself off after swimming, and bathrooms were filthy.. They really...More

We hired a jeep (which is the subject of another review) and drove around the island. Looking for somewhere to stop we came across this little unassuming place and decided to take a chance. Good choice. The food was delicious and the service friendly. The...More

We first found Playa Bonita on our honeymoon driving the island on a motor scooter. You can rent one right outside the cruise port for $50 or so I would guess. The island has a scooter path for some of the ride. It is... More
