Relaxed beach, open air cenote with lots of fish, tarpon, and a friendly alligator! Beach bar with good lunch and a proper dive shop. This is the way Yucatán beach used to be - relaxed, uncrowded, and gracious!

If you're looking for a wonderful retreat from the overcrowded and noisy beaches of nearby Playa del Carmen and Tulum, then this is the place to go! In addition to great Mexican food at very reasonable prices, you get the added advantage of relaxing in cushioned lounge chairs on the beach! There is also wonderful snorkeling opportunities from the shore... More

We are staying in a home just down the beach as we did two years ago and looked forward to eating here, but the owner has decided to scam people by adding value added tax 16% on the final bill without noting this on the menu. As in other venues it is suppose to be included in the price of... More

We went to check out the location as a possible spot to recommend for our clients to SUP and snorkel. We considered eating at the restaurant after our swim. However the waiter was so extremely rude that we ended up leaving and rather driving another 20 minutes then having to deal with them :(.

I didn't actually eat here, so can't comment on the food...but...I drove down here from playa del carmen because the Cenotes manatia looked like a great way to get a Cenotes experience without all the touristy stuff. This lovely beach front palapa greeted me with great nostalgic music (so nice after the the thump thump dance beat of Playa), cool... More

Ok we have lunch here while waiting for my godchild, she was across the street at the cenote enjoying for a great snorkel tour . We have some sandwiches and grill fish. The place is very nice and the views are awesome, the beach is very narrow and the water full of stones. The price was higher than other eateries... More

We stayed at the hotel and dined here often. We LOVE the Casa Cenote house margarita!! Awesome, but careful, they sneek up on you! We cannot say enough about Gary and the staff's hospitality. Just a great place to stay, eat, relax and enjoy one of the most fascinating & coolest cenotes in Mexico!!

We had lunch here after visiting the cenote. The service was slow as they only had one waiter. The food was poor. What really annoyed me was the 15% service they added to the bill. Even though it clearly stated on the menu this was only added to parties of 6 or more. I hate being taken for a stupid... More

It has a really cool cenote it is not my favorite there cenote it is a strong current in it, it is fun to rent a kayak, if you are not a strong swimmer I recommend a life jacket. The beach is just gorgeous and not crowded. It's worth to spend a whole day over there.
