Small menu with limited options. They were nice and accommodated our dietary requests but the food was mushy and not flavorful at all. Only open for dinner on Fridays and have loud music which is good but difficult to have a conversation during.

We love it here so much we want to buy a vacation home here. It is the perfect place for families! The servers at the beach club are so so friendly, fun and welcoming. Anything you need! It’s clean and great food. Can’t beat the...location. The servers truly made our trip, making us feel so special every day. We will most definitely be coming back here!!More

My family comes to the beach club for more than 5 years. We have never seen the club in such an advanced state of decay. The timber sun chairs have been replaced by cheap plastic loungers with a 60s design. No more pool mattress, no...more towel. Officially it is due to COVID but according to some rumors it is because the existing pool mattresses are wider than the new plastic chair and don’t fit. The pool rules display panel is unreadable due to the sun’s rays. The quality of the food has drastically decreased. People sit and listen to their music thus bothering the other visitors of the club. They should use headphones! This brings me to realize that there is no more management or if there is one, it is of such poor efficiency that it should be changed. That 's a shame considering the huge potential of the club That 's a shame because the Beach Club is the showcase of Hacienda Pinilla. A club in a state of disrepair affects the valuation of real estate!More

Friendliest staff on the planet. Great service and constantly surprising menu items. We've never had a bad meal in all our many visits.

This club is free for those staying at the JW Marriott. To add some variety, we stopped for lunch and it was pretty good. The service was pretty quick even when busy. Kids grabbed a pizza, which was pretty much just like home. We tried...the tacos, the salmon and I tried the steak. The portions were small but perfect for our liking. Of course, I ordered a cappuccino and it was also very nice. The establishment had a nice atmosphere, inside/outside and was relaxing. You can walk to it from the JW via the beach if the tide is low. If the tide is high, you either need to drive or take the shuttle. There is a little playground for the kids to play and even a little soccer field. If you are in the area, it is worth a try and cheaper than eating at the JW.More

Slowest service in the world. I dare you to find worse service anywhere for this price. Really. Double dare you.

The location was great. The service was terrible. I am not exaggerating that 4 other tables that were seated prior to us left prior to us even receiving our dinner. The food was so inconsistent. Some good, some terrible. Even if you ordered the same...thing. 4 people at our table ordered fajitas. 2 of them had 3 pieces of meat. 3! Chewy, tough, disgusting. The other 2, 8 pieces of tender juicy strips. How does that happen. The kitchen and staff simply fail.More
