Extremely slow service, waiters charge $$ in every order. Get ready cash (a lot of), they say they accept credit card when you arrive. Once seated they say card reader is not working. The beach is awesome, excellent for snorkeling.

We like the slower pace of this area. Locals are not as pushy. The beach is fun but not really for little children.

Well I honestly don't know. I would try to contact them before hand. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and just showing up may work if you are not requiring their services for anything but good and drink services.

You do not need reservations, but it is not a free beach. I would recommend reservations and get a package deal that includes transportation as well as the beach amenities. You can go through a company like Shore Trips... More
