  • I’ll love to put 0 starts to this place, I didn’t now you have to show your wallet to get good service. I’m sorry but I’m Mexican and love to visit this kind of places but is really sad that In my own country i get discriminated and see that white people will get privileges, I came with 14 members of my family and want to eat in this restaurant and the waiter said they didn’t have enough tables for us and send us to the restaurant right next to them, same thing happens again with another waiter, when literally they had enough space for us, we are coming from Texas and we had Dollars to spend but we are brown color so our money don’t have value. In the U.S we hear every day about our Latin people try to cross over to be able to get a better life for their families but the U.S don’t want them due to they think we are criminals. In our own country we get treaded just like the U.S tread our people, so please think about it twice when you trained your employees to tread the customers that come to your business
  • A beautiful beach, great swimming area, super service are a recipe for a perfect trip to the beach.
