Fodor's Review

This secluded, nearly private man-made beach is just a tiny crescent of sand on the opposite side of Península de Santiago from the Playa la Audiencia. Framed at both ends by rocks, it's a good snorkeling spot. Expensive restaurants at both Las Hadas and the nearby Barceló Karmina Palace serve drinks, snacks, and full meals. Although located on Playa la Audiencia, Pacifico Water Sports rents Jet Skis and kayaks here as well; it also arranges dive and snorkel trips. Nonguests of the hotels pay MX$375 per person for use of their pools and facilities; this fee is credited toward consumption of food or drink at the snack bar or restaurants, which makes it slightly more palatable. You can see the beach from the top of the cobblestone road that leads to the resort's main entrance; take a look to make sure it's your idea of paradise before shelling out the fee. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: snorkeling; sunrise; swimming; walking.
