If you are on Renaissance Island, this is your only option. The good news is that the food is good and the drink choices are pretty varied. They had a picante something drink that was interesting with cilantro, lime, cucumber and cayenne that was pretty interesting. The Hawaiian pizza we had was pretty good and even had some coconut on it which was a nice addition. The wrap was so so and the chips and dips were pretty lame with plain chips and 3 small containers of out of the jar dips. (wouldn't get this again) They do have waiters and waitresses coming around the beach which is nice as well. The prices are reasonable for where you are so can't complain there and the fact you can put it on your room and not carry cash is nice too. The restaurant looks out over the lagoon so you can hardly complain about that it drinks always taste better near the water.

My best advice would be to eat before you head out to the Renaissance Island. They have a captive audience - the food is very expensive, and not very good. The drinks are delicious though, if not very strong.

Spent a overly evening at the Papagayo Bar and Grill after a very long day of travel. My husband and I each enjoyed the steak platter. The steak was quite tender and was seved with salad and fries. Luckily it was an evening that a live band performed while patrons danced and enjoyed the casual environment. The warm ocean breezes just added the perfect touch to an already pleasurable evening.

Located on the Renaissance Resort and Casino's private island. New fixtures, seating, bar arrangement and lighting. Really, really nice. Menu will change this Fall so I cannot comment on future fare. However, food always good before. I know they are adding a pizza oven but that's all.
