La Playa is a nice beach spot with great service from Gregory. They have a Sunday buffet for about $19/pp. This is the only day they honor $1 - 1 Euro so that's a good day to try it. The bathroom, though, is pretty disgusting, so beware.

La Playa beach bar was the featured bar when we went to Orient Bay on a stop with Bernard’s tours. We got an amazing deal and enjoyed our time here. Great chairs, great beach, great time.

As we were renting a nearby condo we were able to use the beach lounge chairs at La Playa (if you didn't have a deal with the owners you had to pay for your chairs each day). The chairs were comfy and only a two minute walk from our condo.

The service on the beach was lacking - unless you were friends with the server - but the lunches we had in the restaurant area were very good. Both the service and food was excellent. We had lunch here about 5 times in our two weeks.

For those of you who like red wine -- you can get a very good Bordeaux for $23.00 (ice included). What you don't finish at lunch - you can take back to your beach chairs in a nice little ice bag.

For food -- the Chevre salad - the 3 fish salad and the tropicana salad with chicken and shrimp were all very good.

La Playa is quieter than some of the larger restaurants and beach clubs along Orient Bay -- which can be nice for some relaxing and reading time.

Great way to start your day as you are basically eating breakfast on the beach.

We started each day during our stay at L'Hoste at La Playa with the included breakfast buffet.

Hot and cold cereal, fresh fruit and pastries. Juices and coffee.

During the day, La Playa provides L'Hoste guests with a beach chair and umbrella, but ladies, be warned.

The issue with La Playa was the "Playa" tending the beach. Gregory (self proclaimed "Black Jesus") as he seems to refer to himself, is relentless. When he wasn't making my wife feel uncomfortable with him nonstop flirting, he was off hitting on every other female on his beach.

One day of that crap was enough for us.

So if you are looking for a relaxing beach day without a horny dog panting over you, head south after breakfast. There are plenty of other beach bars with chair rentals on Orient Beach with a better 1 euro = 1 dollar rate.
