    Perhaps we hit them on an off Night but the swordfish was awful as was the chicken. The service however was excellent.

    They cancelled all of our reservations for the week without telling us. Refused to acknowledge these reservations that had been made with the guidance of their concierge team.

    Was not allowed to attend, turned away. Had 5 reservations set over the next 3 weeks but they are not allowing anyone from the Pueblo in. Have cancelled them all. Shame as we used it alot earlier this year. Oh well. Do NOT book a res unless you are staying inside the gates.

    We love la lancha but there is a 50$ USD minimum per person to go here. We made reservations through open table and it didn’t say that anywhere. Once we got to the gate they wouldn’t let us in for quite some time. Then again once we got to the restaurant. We got there at 5:30 for our 5:30 reservation and they closed at 6 and wanted 50$ usd per person in our 5 person party???? if they got it sorted out this place could be awesome!

    Beautiful setting, but we were attacked by mosquitos the entire meal. This was at sunset. The hosts put bug spray on the table and blow a fan, but this doesn't work. Appetizers and food were very good. Cocktails were pretty, but not tasty. I would not recommend to a friend due to the mosquitoes and cocktails. *Waitress was excellent and employees very friendly. I give them a 5!!

    No fueron claros cuando llamé y pregunté si por el acceso tenía camastros en la playa, me dijeron que si. Entonces fui y al llegar resulta que no, que estaba lleno, pero hice reserva y me cobran si no voy. Reclamé y si se pudo solucionar. El servicio excelente y el costo beneficio si vale la pena.

La comida fue deliciosa, todo lo que pedimos estaba espectacular. Aunque es algo costoso, vale la pena toda la experiencia. Muchos detalles y amenidades que hacen la diferencia. Muy recomendado!!

    Wow, this was our unexpected BEST MEAL of the week. It was the last day of their pop-up, Vines and Surf, and every dish was terrific. We loved their cocktails (mine was the yellow bird, my husbands was a mezcal based cocktail), which were reasonably priced. The tuna tartar was served on top of the freshest mix of greens/arugula. The lamb quesadilla was so savory, served with jus, harissa, and another salsa verde. The baked clam dish was superb. The smokey, grilled eggplant was also a nice option to even things out. We finished with the guava ice cream (egg free, so my son could have some - yay!). It was a delightful way to end the meal. Feet in the sand at sunset with beautiful lantern lighting, and an awesome DJ spinning cool 50s-esque tunes. I would go back in a heartbeat. **Do take a picture of your menu and request an itemized bill at the end of your meal.

    Terrible experiencia en la caseta de seguridad de entrada, éramos 8 personas con reservación de las cuales solo 1 Sra no tenía identificación por que se le olvido en puerto vallarta y no obstante que tenía sus identificaciones oficiales en digital no tuvieron la cortesía de dejarnos entrar ni al complejo, en ningún lugar de los detalles de reserva había una nota sobre este requisito para poder entrar, el personal de caseta nos trato como si fuéramos a robar el lugar y el encargado del restaurante solo se disculpó por teléfono sin mas que hacer, después de manejar mas de 1 hora para llegar a tiempo a la reserva. Mucho ojo con este requisito, nos tuvieron casi 1 hora afuera esperando para que al final salieran con eso.

    We forgot that El Surf Club invited La Docena, a restaurant from GDL, to take over their Punta Mita beach club for the holidays. Not impressed. The staff, waiters, chef, cooks at El Surf do a much better job than their invited La Docena. My fish was bland, not sarandeado, companion's steak tender but not the least seasoned and had lots of fat. Salads were salty. Sadly when the vibe could have been festive it was more like a circus - I think they took on way more people and reservations than they could serve properly. Will gladly return to El Surf when the "home staff" returns in Feb. Not sure why La Docena is popular, maybe better when they are in their own restaurant(?)
