“Great if done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Two visits one with paid chaise lounges and umbrellas and an impromtu visit when we just picked a spot in front of the bar and chilled. Great place for drinking a Pacifico and enjoying the views.
Awesome place to swim. DJ on the weekends keeps it livelily and kind turns onto a scene as the day progresses

“Not Impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Over crowded and too much construction, the beach was loud and not relaxing. We heard great things but after planning to stay we picked up and left.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We generally hit this place immediately after getting on the boat. Service is great and beach is fun. Lots to do. We splurged and rented to chaise lounge chairs. They come with all day hostess service, towels and an umbrella. Enjoy the welcome strawberry smoothies!
Love this place. Didn't like the fact construction was still going on in August (that should have been done by now!) but that aside, love this place.

“water sport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

It is a good spot to paddle board or kayak- has a bar on the beach. I think you can rent cabanas . It is a nice walk from city center.

“Beach and Drinks.....Ahhhhhhh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Great spot to relax, enjoy the waves and have some cocktails. The bartenders are attentive and the drinks for where you are, are reasonably priced. The food was limited as they are rebuilding the kitchen. We had a blast....
