We had a drink - or maybe more - each night in PDC at The Roof Bar. Fantastic drinks. Sensational margaritas and caprioskas and great staff and atmosphere. Such good value too. People watching from the balcony is extra fun. A great, fun, free and easy place which we loved. James is a great guy!

I love to visit the roof bar when in Playa del Carmen. Best margaritas in town, fantastic view of 5th avenue for people watching if you can get the good table and lovely staff!

The crew at the roof bar are great. Angel, Juan and the others provide a fun, attentive and friendly daytime experience. The drinks are delicious and reasonably priced, the food rivals the best gourmet restaurants and the pool and view that go along with it are superb. We spent everyday of a 7 day trip here and really enjoyed it.... More

Great little bar overlooking 5th Avenue. Cosy and laid back atmosphere. Good tunes. Clean bathrooms. Great wifi. Lovely staff and the best mojito I've ever had (perfect mint/sugar/lime/ice/rum ratio!). I'm ordering another one right now!

We stopped here for a quick cocktail and ended up staying much longer than we thought we would. The bartender was friendly and the drinks were great. Drinks are made with fresh squeezed juices and prices are good. The bar had on music, a variety of classic/alternative rock. We found this to be a nice break from the blaring disco... More
