My husband and I ate at Habaneros while staying on the property at Playa Cielo. The food was incredibly fresh, and service friendly and attentive.

We had dinner here, and were not disappointed! One lobster was severely overdone, but everything else was so flavourful and delicious.

Get to the restaurant early to get a spot on the beach to catch the most beautiful sunset! Veggie options and the best and most unique flavored margaritas! Free wifi, great service and great atmosphere. Water costs extra is the only con.

Good food in a perfect setting. Excellent, friendly, knowledgeable service. The food was well prepared and tasted better sitting with waves breaking in background.

Beautiful beachfront Mexican fusion restaurant located in the highly rated Playa Cielo hotel. Daily specials according to the catch of the day (lobster and fish are a house specialty!) Combined with a rich diverse menu, serving fresh ingredients to your table.
An amazing selection of delicious, naturally flavored maragaritas, to sip while watching the incredible sunset views.
Come and enjoy our food and atmosphere!
