The staff here are super friendly and the view is fantastic. Pork tacos were off the charts. And the fresh fruit drinks were delicious!

It's a little ways out of town and the road is a bit sketchy in certain locations if you don't have a 4-wheeler but if you take your time it is worth the effort. We went for drinks and apps and along with the view both were excellent. Delicious sangria and nachos.

Maybe we got the wrong thing? Fish tacos.....how can you make those bad here? Anyway, the drinks were awesome. Service was great. Food was only so so.... Bratty American kids playing in the front area near the nice lounge area disrupting our tranquility. Parents were not really controlling them so well. Go for the drinks!

We tried this as we were not impressed with the food next door at Aqua Dolce. The food was good and Gabrielle was an outstanding server.

The food is amazing, the drinks are amazing, the view is incredible. Its an experience to go to the beach shower off surrounded by plants and step into the restaurant for your food and a cold beer.

We stayed at Iguana for 5 days so tended to eat here for lunch or snacks when it was suitable based on what we had planned in the day. Great Nachos and really well prepared fresh food. Really good Chimichurri and Guacamole. The only downside was the prices but it was on a resort so no suprise really!

Loved loved loved The Pearl! We stayed in one of Iguana's club rooms above The Pearl so we ate here every evening of our stay.
