“Greatest view in Mal Pais with great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2010

The Papaya Lounge and Restaurant's view is absolutely stunning, not to be missed at sunset. The service was great and the local chef prepared excellent dinners. We stayed at the Moana Lodge and ate at the restaurant three of the four nights. The chef even prepared a mahi mahi meal with the fish we had caught that day! The highlight was the New Year's Eve dinner which had several courses and desert. Highly recommend.
