We enjoyed lunch here as part of a pre-arranged excursion, so did not deal with taxes, etc. The fajitas and fish tacos were good, as was the spinach salad. The view, including the bubbling of th spot where the cenote joins the ocean, is fantastic. Though I did not have a margarita, others in my party did. Even just one... More

We went to the BBQ on Sunday. Food was not good. The BBQ was not available. Service was not good. My purse was stolen off the back of my chair and the owner brushed off the theft claiming no one ever steals from his place,very uncooperative refusing to have a look at security footage. Meanwhile the thief was at Starbucks... More

This place has a very relaxed vibe and friendly staff. The food is good and reasonably priced. The margaritas totally sneak up on you, as noted in another review :) If you are looking for upscale don't go there, if you are looking to have fun and be able to put your feet up on the chair next you...Definitely go...

There were 3 tables occupied (including ours), and they forgot about our food... :( but the place is awesome. There's a cenote inside the ocean, and right in front of the restaurant. After lunch grabbed a couple of beers and stayed around for the evening. Wonderful nature, and awesome swims in and out the cenote/sea. Very recommended.

Relaxed beach, open air cenote with lots of fish, tarpon, and a friendly alligator! Beach bar with good lunch and a proper dive shop. This is the way Yucatán beach used to be - relaxed, uncrowded, and gracious!

If you're looking for a wonderful retreat from the overcrowded and noisy beaches of nearby Playa del Carmen and Tulum, then this is the place to go! In addition to great Mexican food at very reasonable prices, you get the added advantage of relaxing in cushioned lounge chairs on the beach! There is also wonderful snorkeling opportunities from the shore... More

We are staying in a home just down the beach as we did two years ago and looked forward to eating here, but the owner has decided to scam people by adding value added tax 16% on the final bill without noting this on the menu. As in other venues it is suppose to be included in the price of... More

We went to check out the location as a possible spot to recommend for our clients to SUP and snorkel. We considered eating at the restaurant after our swim. However the waiter was so extremely rude that we ended up leaving and rather driving another 20 minutes then having to deal with them :(.

I didn't actually eat here, so can't comment on the food...but...I drove down here from playa del carmen because the Cenotes manatia looked like a great way to get a Cenotes experience without all the touristy stuff. This lovely beach front palapa greeted me with great nostalgic music (so nice after the the thump thump dance beat of Playa), cool... More

Ok we have lunch here while waiting for my godchild, she was across the street at the cenote enjoying for a great snorkel tour . We have some sandwiches and grill fish. The place is very nice and the views are awesome, the beach is very narrow and the water full of stones. The price was higher than other eateries... More
