Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Walked into Cabanas for the afternoon and stopped here for a drink. Nice place with nice staff, and they made a very nice Pina Colada!

I had been here twice before in the previous month and enjoyed dinner. On this occasion I decided to try the breakfast and was both disappointed and dissatisfied: I ordered the small breakfast. When it arrived, the food was almost cold, and the fried egg...overcooked. It was very unappetising. The waitress came and asked me if everything was ok, and I said No - and explained about the cold food and overcooked egg yolk. Her response was that they were all like that! I did eat it because I was hungry and didn't have time to go anywhere else, but i will definitely not be going there again for breakfast. On this basis therefore, I also thought it was poor value for money.More

Murphy's server unfortunately let the pub down. We went to Murphy's hoping for a good breakfast. The food was alright. Pretty typical for a pub catering mainly to tourists passing through. (No jam or marmalade though.) I cannot drink caffeine so was happy when they...assured me that they have mint/peppermint tea. Unfortunately, it wasn't ... it was black tea, infused with mint. I explained the difference to the waiter and returned their teabag. I used one of my own teabags, quite prepared to pay for a mug of hot water ... However, the mug of hot water cost €2.00, which was more than their fruit drinks cost. When we politely enquired about this, we were met with a very abrupt, and annoyed response from the server. I doubt we'll give Murphy's another chance - the food wasn't amazing enough to negate the server's response ... plenty of other restaurants in the area.More

Waited ages due to lack of staff. Food was mediocre at best. One dish was cold and the wedges were out of a packet/freezer. There are far better options within 100m and I would advise giving it a miss

After visiting Cabanas for 14 years and been a regular in this bar. All I can say is well done to the new owner who has transformed the bar. Murphys bar now offers food all day, from breakfast to late night snacks. The breakfast is...exceptional value as are the other snacks that are available from 13:00. The bar has been totally transformed is light clean and airy. The toilets are some of the best in Cabanas and constantly been cleaned. Great when you come off the beach and need a drink and a bite to eat. The service was great, friendly and fast. Well done to the new owner who has done what we all thought needed to be done!More
