Morning meals jumpstart with a bang, complete breakfast, $9, gallo pinto (mixed rice and beans), seasonal fruit garnished with a ring of chocolate syrup, two eggs made your way, toast, fried plantains, orange juice and coffee.

Tasty lunches tempt you to tango, stuffed chicken, $12, ham and mozzarella cheese, covered in white wine cream sauce, served with hand-cut french fries and a mixed salad, or grilled steak, $12, covered in glazed onion and red wine sauce, alongside french fries and salad.

Drinks offer their own sweet melody, passion fruit margaritas, $6, extra-minty mojitos, $6, rum and coke with lime, $5.

Dinners hold the hype high, grilled ribs, $11, topped with spicy tomato sauce, with sides of white rice and julienned zucchini, tomato, carrot, red bell, pepper, onion, basil and avocado, or a plate of spaghetti Amatriciana, $8, tomatoes, bacon and basil.

Sweet treats encore the meal, brownie, $7, served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled in chocolate and strawberry syrups.


An even mix of Rancho de la Playa hotel guests, Samara vacationers and locals all come together to eat at – and sometimes dance around – wooden tables and bar-tops next to the pool.
