We spent the day here, using the bar and facilities whilst swimming and Kite Surfing.
A very functional place with OK bar food.
Consider also other locations where the shade is better.

May 5th, visited Xpu Ha Playa. I generally go there, usually rent a palapa and bring our own food and drink. However, this time, we did not want to lug a cooler..so we just went for a few hours to swim and enjoy the beach. The Salsa Band was great! The service is always poor - they just want to earn money and not work, as usual. White chairs are free, wood chairs with cushions are $300 pesos…no negotiating, even if you are ordering food. Food is just okay…plain, greasy food..maybe ordering the ceviche is the best bet..chips are from a bag, drinks are watered down…best bet is to order a beer. This is a beautiful beach but is becoming more popular in high-season and now there are numerous beach clubs. I recommend to pay the entrance fee of $100 pesos and walk down the beach a bit to find a nice location to enjoy. Water is beautiful and very clean in this area.

Our tour guide, Maryanna, brought us here for a buffet style lunch on the beach after our Tulum Yalku Plus tour. What a wonderful way to end our day! The food was delicious and the view magnificent. The staff was very friendly and smiled their way through our elementary attempts at speaking their beautiful language. We will be back to eat here again!

Xpu-ha Beach is the best, you can access it by many other entrances, so this review is not about the beach which is amazing, clean, white, thin sand and not crowded, this si about the La Playa Restaurant only.

In the main entrance you pay like 2 dollars per person and if you eat in La Playa they are refunded when you leave the Restaurant in the highway entrance when the entrance fee is paid

if you don't eat in the restaurant and want to have a shade you need to pay for an umbrella and 2 seats, this is OK

If you Pay for the Umbrella, something you are renting, and order form the restaurant is OK, but if you bring something to drink they DONT ALLOW YOU! This is the first restaurant I know where you have to pay for your table where you are going to eat, this is just not acceptable.

The food is below average and expensive compared with Playa del Carmen average prices, presentation of the food is poor, not recommend to eat here, bring your food and your beverage and just rent the umbrella will be cheaper and you will be happier!

It used to be a good place but they increase strictness but quality was left behind, it seems they want more money for no more effort.
