Cocktails at the Playa Costa Verde

Hi, can anybody who's been to the PCV recently give us some ideas on the cocktail menu, as we're hearing very mixed reviews.

My girlfriend is not a big drinker, and wouldn't appreciate huge measures of spirits (rum and cokes etc). She prefers a large variety of cocktails, mainly of the slush/creamy varieties. Can you give us a specific idea whats available, and wether it differs between the bars.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The selection at the lobby is the best. The beach and swim up bar are a bit limited but they do still make various types of cocktails and slush drinks. I have never had a problem getting anything that I liked at the lobby bar, the menu is quite extensive. If they do not know how to make what you want, they are more than happy to take direction.

Enjoy the PCV.

we just got back from a fortnight there last thursday.

i can't remember them all as there is so many. in the main bar there are 2 cocktail lists on the bar. there must be about 30 alcoholic ones and on the back about another 10 non alcoholic. some i can remember are

pina colada



havana special



some of the white rum ones to name a few. all mixed to perfection. the pina colada's in particular are fantastic - 24 hrs a day !

they also do the usual other spirits cocktails, screwdrivers, wallbangers etc. in fact, they will knock you up what ever you want. even if its not on the list, and they won't make you pay for it. i had international brand drinks there of the top shelf and never had to pay for one! always left a peso or 2 at the end of the night for who ever looked after me though. you'll have no worries, its a bloody cocktail paradise. what ever you want, you will get.

Whatever you like, you can get! Even if it's not on the menu, if you know what's in it, they'll make it for you.

The pina colada slush is gorgeous and you can get them to add rum if you want it.

Was there in May for 4th time..hope you love it as much as we do - enjoy. Nickie

Hi Danny, we were there in April and had many a cocktail in the Cigar bar. The two guys sharing the duties there were just great at mixing cocktails. just tell them what you want and they will serve you with what you want.

Have a great time at the PCV. It is a great place.
