My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way back to our hotel. We wanted somewhere to eat and snorkel. It took a while for our waiter to ask us what we wanted to eat but once we ordered the food came fast. I had the burger and it was good. After eating we went snorkeling and all I really saw were sea fans and one pocket of anemones. There was better area's to snorkel then here but it was a picturesque stop.

The food,drink and prices were in line with this type of beach club. Staffed with some of the best Ive met, we were very happy while out of the water. That said, while snorkeling I found it necessary to submerge beneath layers of shredded plastic floating near the surface to see the beautiful sea scape. I was there twice. I will return. Enjoy!

The staff were wonderful when our taxi didn’t show up as planned and they were closed. They waited with us and welcomed us to stay inside and not sit out on the street. The kids were welcome to continue playing and having fun (and they were typical loud kids playing hide and seek). Staff didn’t mind at all. So for that, they get 5 stars from us! The food is ok. The burgers for the 4 picky kids were perfect as were the fries. Ceviche ok, have had much better but what you would expect from a beach bar. Very nice helpful staff. Cover of $5 pp to use facility or order lunch. We got lunch. Snorkelling is fair. Much better at Cash Del Mar/Paprika. However we did see a massive wall of fish with a huge barracuda floating over top of them. Nice way to spend January 1st. It’s not -40C so anywhere is great!

Snorkeling here is very good, got to see a different kind of fish, stingray and an eel, water was very clear and almost shallow.

Restaurant is god with decent food and drinks, price are reasonable. Free Wi-Fi and staff is very friendly and not pushy at all.

There is no cover and minimum consuming is 200 pesos about 11 dollars, you have access to tables and sun beds. Definitely recommend this place.

We stopped in at Corona Beach Club after deciding not to visit Sky Reef, and upon sitting was offered the opportunity to order. Requested two beers, all was well. We also requested a food menu but opted to wait.

Upon informing waiter that we were going to wait to order food, he informed us that to stay we must spend $10/person. No problem, except how the information was presented. We had intended to stay awhile, as my husband wanted to snorkel.

All was fine until we went to pay our bill. They accept credit cards, but do not try to add a tip to the receipt even though there is a space to do so. They cannot alter the amount entered into the machine, for whatever reason. That wasn't an issue, however our waiter did not speak English well enough to explain the problem and we do not speak Spanish well enough to understand what he was trying to explain. We all experienced some frustrations trying to communicate until he left to get an English speaking co-worker.

After that, all was well. We left our tip in Pesos, though not in nearly as happy a mood as we had been moments prior. Something to note about the credit cards. If you want to pay with plastic, plan to leave a tip in cash.
