The ambiance and food at Mambo was really outstanding. The quality of the food was excellent and the wait staff were attentive but not overpowering. The resort itself looks lovely - so lovely that if we come back to AC, I'd love to stay there.

You cant beat the atmosphere of this restaurant. It is a high-end tropical motif. The service was excellent. The food was very good, but slightly bland. The location is quite far from town.

Food was okay. Service was a bit overblown and pricey. We had better food at Coco Cabana a mile or so closer to San Pedro. The road is terrible but navigable. The hotel looked wonderful. We won't go back next time were on Ambergris

We did not have a reservation and arrived late, but the restaurant was extremely accommodating! Cocktails were delicious and served very promptly. Food was flavorful and fresh and Archie was able to make amazing suggestions based upon our dining preferences. Would love to return!

We bikes here from costa blu. Food was ok, but not as good as other places we ate on the island. I had the fried fish and fries. It was a nice place with a good view of beach. Friendly staff.
