I got Montezuma's Revenge from the shrimp. My wife got the same from the fish tacos. It tasted good, but that didn't last long. Service was excellent. Great location right on the beach.

Eat in your sandals at tables on the beach. Food is decent- not great, but decent. Good fish and veggies. And the drinks are superb. Worth a stop when in Playa Hermosa!! And the late night music is fun as well.

The location of this restaurant is phenomenal, we sat on the beach and watched hermit crabs scurry around while we ate. However, the food was a bit bland and much overpriced. Would recommend grabbing an app and drink here, then enjoying your main meal elsewhere...More

The people at Habaneros are very friendly and professional, however, our service was slow and the food was just average. The location is right on the beach and is stunning.

Beautiful beachfront Mexican fusion restaurant located in the highly rated Playa Cielo hotel. Daily specials according to the catch of the day (lobster and fish are a house specialty!) Combined with a rich diverse menu, serving fresh ingredients to your table. An amazing selection of delicious, naturally flavored maragaritas, to sip while watching the incredible sunset views. Come and enjoy our food and atmosphere!
