The atmosphere here is great they have several hammocks, a pool, it’s on the beach, and they have a separate bar. I’ve had lunch dinner and breakfast here. It’s all a diff menu and so delicious.

Go early and let the kids play on the beach while you have cocktails at the lively and friendly beach bar. Tables are worth a wait. Just order the daily special and enjoy.

The 9 of us ate here for dinner 4 times, and every meal was amazing. They were very accommodating for our large party; we were either seated immediately or after a 15-30 minute wait on the beach or in the outside bar as were waited...More

Exclusive - it should be very clear that this restaurant is intended ONLY for Iguana guests. After reading amazing reviews, we drove from Grenada for fish tacos on the beach. Unfortunately, we were told that we could not enter to eat, we could come back...More

It was an incredibly convoluted experience trying to reserve a seating at Pili's. Despite talking with the owners on the phone several times, as well as negotiating entry into the gated Hacienda Iguana community, we were told that we could not dine as Pili feared...More

We waited quite some time for a table. Even longer for our food. My dish was served after the rest of the table had already eaten. While we were waiting we were not offered drinks. The food was good but didn't make up for the...More

We went to dinner at Pili’s hoping for something unique. We weren’t disappointed. The food was amazing as were the drinks. There is nothing like enjoying a amazing dinner next to the waves crashing in the background. Get there at 4 for happy hour. Highly...More

I guess if you can go enter Iguana's compound, it is open to the public. Iguana takes very seriously its privacy, which I found annoying when I stayed there. Try asking at the gate. Hope I was helpful.
