Early in the day you can walk up from the beach to swing at the bar with a cool drink in hand. As the sun sets it's a great location for a casual dinner on the deck, although the service is almost abominable. The setting, on the water with the lights of Cozumel in the distance, is very romantic. Music at this time is quiet, but as the evening wears on it increases both in volume and tempo.
Around 10:30pm begins the steady stream of the nightclub crowd, paying a $5 admission. This is entertainment in itself, ranging in age from 18 to 80, in all sizes, alone, as couples or in groups, in all modes of dress, from beach casual to wedding dressy, from Italian chic to NY sexy, from flip-flops to stiletto heels. They're all here for a good time.
As you enter under the big palapa there are low chairs and sofas, with oriental type rugs on the floor to sit on with low tables. There is no view of the water here. Then comes the long water view bar with swings right on the beach. The dance floor is adjacent, and there is a lot of seating on the sand—again on low stools with low tables. At 11pm, there's a "fire show" where dancers twirl fire-lit batons and swing flaming balls on a chain... they even dance in the fire on the floor. They're all very energetic and talented, definitely worth seeing at least once during your vacation.
After the show it's full blast disco with everyone dancing, even on the bar. Service at the bar, and with roaming bartenders, is swift and efficient even when people are shoulder to shoulder. Don't expect to run a tab here because you pay as you go. Don't miss it, this is the place to "see and be seen" in Playa at night—and to top it off, you'll also have a great time.
