Had a lovely breakfast here. The eggs were very well cooked, all fresh ingredients. The smoothies were phenomenal, the berry c specifically. The staff were very friendly and efficient too. 100% would come back!

Unfortunately, we found this place too late on our trip and were only able to eat there once for breakfast. Food is fresh and healthy and the service was good.

Let me start off by saying the good was really good. The smoothies were really good but THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE!!!! We actually had to get up and go get the waiter to place our order for everything we wanted. I had the morning sunshine smoothie and the surfs up breakfast it took an hour to get it. They only...

The Acai Bowls instantly made me a loyal customer. The fresh fruit and vegetable juices are great energy boosters. The staff are genuinely friendly and honest promoters of healthy eating. The vegetarian wrap is delicious especially with extra avocado. I've visited several times during my month stay in Puerto Rico. One important note, depending on the day of the week,... More

Had a search on beforehand and followed this place on instagram before coming. Expected a bit more on the food-end. Great waiters and a nice place. Went there twice. Smoothies are very good and please try the oreo-waffles. Our 2 orders had so much time between that the first one was finished eating and ready to leave before the second... More

Playa Papaya is right behind the San Juan Water & Beach Club, so it's just a 5 min walk from the hotel/Isla Verde Beach. I recommend not being in a hurry when you go, as there was a little bit of a wait; but not much. The "Beach Blondie" smoothie, the "El Vegano" wrap, and the Acai Bowl were all... More

This was THE stereotypical bad restaurant visit. Took a long time to get drinks. Food took over an hour to come out after the order and rather than communicate to us it would be a while they just kinda avoided the table. About 45 mins in they came to say there was a problem with the kitchen and offered some... More

Small restaurant. The food was excellent. My husband had the inlet which was excellent. I Had tropical pancakes. One of the best I ever had. The price was fair and the service great. Can't wait to go back and try something else.
