Went here twice during my stay in Playacar. The buffalo chicken pizza and Parmesan garlic fries were both very yummy. The staff is always very friendly.

“Favorite beach bar in Playa del Carmen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Great location, free chairs, although they are really close. Loved the entertainment, stuffed burger, clean washrooms. Gerry made sure I got a good margarita, fun server.

“Fun place to spend a day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

The price for a beach chair at Wah Wah is right - $0. Food and drink service to the beach is fast and friendly. We drank buckets of beer - 5 XX's for approx $5 (US). We really enjoyed the live music by Mike Grabow - he plays his guitar and sings toes in the sand, beach chill, put a smile on your face tunes VERY well (we caught him playing at a couple places during our stay). The bathrooms are CLEAN so two thumbs way up for that - I've seen some awful bathrooms at beach clubs in this area of Playa. The only downside to Wah Wah is that the chairs are squeezed so close together there is no room for small tables and you have no choice but to get to know your neighbor. If in that area of Playa again, I'd definitely spend a day here.

“Nice little beach restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

This was our "local" while we were staying in Playa, partly because you get free sun loungers if you eat here! Food, service and value were all pretty decent, def a safe bet when you want food by the beach + some good live music.
