We own a condo close to the Marbella Surf Inn. We had heard that pizza there was very good. The crust is thin and the toppings were generous. We took a couple of slices home. We'll go back and try other items on the menu.

You are about 10 minutes walking, from the beach It is a dusty road. So having a car is a big plus. People do it without, but I would recommend it.
