The only reason I gave it a 3 the service was super slow and I was there with four other tables. The food on the other hand was awesome, the fresh mahi with mango salsa!!

We went to this restaurant which have a fantastic view by the ocean based on the reviews.... Unfortunately the food that we picked wasn't good at all, we had the shrimps with coconut sauce... The rice was cold and the shrimps over cooked ( and cold)... The burgers seems good...not impressed wouldn't go back for diner, lunch maybe!

Everything about this place was perfect! The staff, the food, the ambiance, and the restaurant was very uniquely built. Right on the oceanfront. Drinks were very good and the ceviche was out of this world!

We made the 15 minute walk from the Water Club to La Playita for lunch. You walk through a very small hotel and restaurant is in back. It sits directly on the water. We ate there on a Saturday around 1:30 and there was only one other couple. The food was good. I had the salad with the farmer's cheese... More

There's not much to chose from at Isla Verde for beach bars. Playita benefits from having great views from the bar restaurant. The prices are bit more than you would pay at a normal bar as it is a hotel but not unreasonable, hence average rating rather than very good jus service was a bit mediocre. We didn't eat but...

Don't be fooled by the looks of the hotel, it's nothing fancy however the food and the view of the ocean is the real draw here. I walked from the Water Beach Club Hotel just to make sure I experienced eating there during my stay in Isla Verde.
