Fodor's Expert Review Canibal Royal
Playa's most urbane beach club is set apart from the crowd in more ways than one. It's north of town at Calle 48, and its retro-1960s architecture and eclectic music selection make it a destination in itself. The beach area is equipped with plenty of lounge chairs, and there's a rooftop bar with a plunge pool and sundeck. Expect to pay around M$200 for a chair and umbrella; fees are generally waved for those who spend a minimum of M$200 on food or drinks. For a stylish lunch, try braised octopus or a tarte flambé. There's also a juice bar and full cocktail menu featuring the signature rosemary caipiroska (vodka with lime and sugar). Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: partiers.
