About The Author


  1. We dropped in for a look, the music was loud at 4pm. If your looking for a party vibe, OK. If you’re looking for a relaxing time then check the DJ situation out first.
    That said we had happy hour cocktails downstairs in the open air bar music much more chill and chips n dips came complementary with the drinks. Will go back for afternoon cocktails!

  2. Is this a good place for a bachelorette party? We are a group of 10 girls coming to have some fun in Playa.
    I’m on the search for such information.

    • This is a youthful and fun place. Just confirm with them when you arrive. Sometimes at night they have events but we are sure they would love for you to come there.

  3. We saw this on your website and had to check it out for ourselves! Amazing view and perfect place to spend the day at the pool.

    • For how long can we spend the day? Do we have access to the pool and beach for free if we buy drinks and food ? Can we spend the whole day there until 11pm ?
