“Unique gem”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

The beautiful and friendly owners (they are sisters) are always there to greet patrons and make sure your visit will be pleasant. Great drinks, funky music, an eclectic clientele, unique decor and a great food menu--they offer the best bar food I've had. This place keeps improving all the time. Well done!

Great ambience, nice music. Really nice variety of drink and awesome tapas style food. If you are in Playa del Carmen even for a couple of night, you definitely have to stop there to try the tapas and having a nice drink!!! I will go back there anything that I'm in Playa!!! Good job!!!

“Must see in playa del carmen”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

38th ave is my favorite avenue in all playa so far. Friendliest place with amazing people with good service. My favorite spot is outside bench on the patio. Perfect place to enjoy a nice breeze along with people watching while eating and enjoying drinks. great view. I sometimes find people passing by and taking pictures of this place from the outside so you can imagine architecture of this place.

“Dreams of bacon wrapped dates + Sangria”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This is by far my most favorite local haunt of Playa! I lived in Playa for nearly a year and frequented this charming outdoor hotspot. Off of the beaten path of 12th street bars and clubs, the ambience can't be beat, the sangria will liven your soul, the DJs will keep you energized but are not overly loud that you can't have a fun conversation with friends, and the tapas are some of the most amazing I've tried worldwide. Do not miss a chance to start or end your night out here - you will not regret it!

“A real Gem of a place is Playa”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Sometimes when your travelling you come across places that you never want to leave. We came across Sala Rosa randomly on one of our nightly walks on quinta avenida. It really is the coolest little spot we have found in playa and we returned almost every night. tucked away from the bustling quinta, it seems to be a favorite spot among locals to hang out and listen to some good local and international dj's. The tapas style menu is very affordable and perfect for playa's warm summer nights They have a good variety of creative drinks for the gal's and excellent choices of wines and mezcals aswell. Head to Sala Rosa on your Vaca and i'll guarantee you'll be back more than once. Thanks to all the staff there for showing us and amazing time. See you next year!!!!
