I have been here four or five times now. It's a bit nicer place. Excellent service, cocktails are made very nicely and the food is always good. Not your typical beach bar! Try the Chili Relleno!

We went to la lunita based on the recommendations, pro: it's a beautiful spot, and we felt no pressure from the servers to rush to leave.

We only had appetizers and drinks while we watched the kids snorkel. The service was good and and the ceviche delicious. I would only say it has a very limited menu but otherwise a great place to spend the afternoon.

Location is good, on the way to the laguna. Plus for serving all afternoon. However, food took over an hour, and was not that great.
