I stayed here for a week and loved it. I was traveling alone and felt completely safe and taken care of during my stay. It's situated on a small point with beaches on either side and only steps away. The restaurant/bar is a fun and festive spot with a beautiful view and helpful service. Korey, Antonio and staff were nothing...

If you like to dine outdoors like I do then try this restaurant. A short walk on the beach from the ESJ Azul this restaurant is deceiving from the outside but once you get to the outdoor deck your skeptical face will turn to a big smile. An absolute beautiful view with a wonderful breeze. We got there at noon...

Really wanted to like this place, but it fell short in SO many ways. This was by far the worst service we've had on a long time. We waited and waited and waited all night on everything from drinks to the check. It took forever to even get someone to take our order, let alone get the food. The appetizer...

I come to this restaurant a lot and the food is terrible apart from that they switch the servers every two months such disorganization. The valet Parker is so rude and always drinking on his job YET parking cars. They really need to get their things together.

A very good place to stay! Clean, comfortable room with a fridge. Restaurant has a spectacular view!! Breakfast was good, including cereal, bagels, toast, fruits, cream cheese, butter and jelly, and also water, ice tea, warm milk and coffee. Yogurt would be a nice addition though. This hotel is a peaceful place just by the beach. Cozy and relaxing ambience,...

Had dinner here for a second time and was very happy! Atmosphere is great, located right on the water. Nice bar with a casual and fun feel. Food was quite delicious and staff was super friendly and helpful. New management staff of Antonio and Korey were great and attentive to our needs. I highly recommend stopping here for dinner or...

We were staying near here, and walked down the beach for lunch. The view is amazing. We had the ceviche and the lobster risotto (light lunch). The risotto was perfect and the lobster wasn't over cooked. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the view is spectacular.

We arrived late to find the garden courtyard illuminated by candles, cool music playing and a feeling of calm welcome - excellent vibe - the room was fine with a big closet, in-room safe and small fridge - the terrific restaurant was steps from our room, and we enjoyed the continental breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner there - the seafood...
