We are here the first night after arriving at the papagayo. The beach vibe with the lights and wooden benches is just great...I like those kinda restaurants. The food was great but the service was slow unfortunately which I don't really mind during a vacation....More

Spent the last evening of our 3 week rental in Boca Gentil at this restaurant. For a non-Dutch speaking person, the menu was a wonderful departure from the ordinary. A bit pricey but well worth it for a farewell dinner.

Excelent place to relax on the beach. In front of the restaurant there are beach chairs, with a salted water pool overviewing the ocean. It's like your own private beach. Good food, good and pleasant music, lovely staff, and very quiet for a beach club....More
