I havent had anything bad there in all the times we have eaten there. Its worth going to eat there just for the view! A must stop for anyone staying near... More

Paamul in itself is a funky little place complete with one restaurant with spectacular Caribbean views and breeze. It is surrounded by bungalows, beach homes, and even double-wide trailers with palapas covering them to fit into the natural habitat. The food is very good and the Mahi Mahi is caught fresh daily and couldn't be better. Their ceviche is heavenly... More

The views from this location make it worth a visit. The beach in Paamul is rocky but clear and beautiful. Good snorkeling and kayaking. The food was a little pricey but everything tasted great, we tried the fish tacos, ceviche and sopa de mariscos. Portions were huge, everyone was full after lunch. Beautiful view from the pool. Will definitely be... More

Stopped for a quick snack. The service was good, the food was good and the view was spectacular. We stopped during a rain storm, they were able to close up the glass doors and keep the view while keeping us dry. The menu was fairly extensive and reasonably priced.

The plate had some guacamole, and black beans, fresh sliced tomatoes and onions. Wow was that grouper good. One of our... More

We got married February 20, 2016 at Pamuul surrounded by 40 family and friends. Our vision was a simple and beautiful venue, excellent food, open bar and an energetic DJ. We trusted Maria of Weddings in Playa to help us plan our wedding. We absolutely love Pamuul and Kalu was a pleasure to work with. Our guests started with ceviche... More

This is a really good find and out of the way for most travelers. Snorkel, swim, have a beer, get a massage and enjoy a beautiful uncrowed beach.

If a truly delicious meal and beach paradise is what pleases You this is the spot. From the fresh fish to any of the other menu items it is fabulous. The Meats are grilled to perfection, Gracious Kalu. You can dine under a palapa on the beach or be seated in the restaurant, it's so awesome definitely worth the short... More

We wanted to check out Paamul, and it was great fun and great food. The RV park with all of the added court yards with thatched roofs was so funky and fun to see. The restaurant right on the beach was a great location. When we got there, the place was fairly packed with a number of locals, always a... More
