Well, that may be because I found this place on my first trip to Playa and have never wanted to go anywhere else! While it does have some service issues (it can take a while to both place an order and to get a beer open) the relaxed atmosphere with the bands in the background make for a great day.... More

Great service, tasty food & delicious drinks. Marvin made sure our food & drink were served promptly. Live music at a beach bar + awesome service = Solid experience! Fish tacos are a must. Guac is epic.

A good place to put your yourself for a day or a week. Good food, afternoon music and plenty of visitors to talk to if you want or just sleep in you lounger under an umbrella.

Unfortunately, Wah Wah was the last stop after a lounge day of excursions from our cruise, because we could have stayed the entire day! The drinks were strong, the food was EXCELLENT and the music, the view and the energy was amazing. It's definitely a hidden gem, as in all of our previous visits to Playa, we never knew it... More

Wah Wah’s is so much my go to bar that I pick my hotels based on how close they are to Wah Wahs. Head down in the morning for a wonderful chair under an umbrella or the new sails, grab a bucket a beer or a drink and relax. Lunch time rolls around and the food and amounts served are... More

Went back to the Wah Wah after a 2 year hiatus. Band sounded good as it used to, however the service was not as good as it was in the past. Did not have any food, so no comment on that.

We went to Wah Wah on the recommendation of friends we met at our resort. We met them here one evening to listen to a band that was playing. They have tables and chairs set up close to the stage but yet in the sand near the water. We really enjoyed it. We drank and listened to a band for... More
