The Papaya Lounge and Restaurant

The Papaya Lounge and Restaurant is perched upon one of the highest part of the Hotel Moana property. From the restaurant terrace, the ocean vistas are simply spectacular. The Moana Lodge is located along the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula on the western seaboard of Costa Rica in the local area known as Mal País. The Moana lodge itself is situated on the tree covered hills just 200m from the Pacific Ocean.

In relation to the Mal Pais, Hotel Moana is 1.5kms from the intersection at Playa Carmen, (which is also know as Frank’s corner).

The inspiration for the menu, decor and ambiance of the Papaya Lounge draw from the local Latin American culture. Papaya Lounge offers a delicious range of tapas, including some of the best local seafood and produce. The decor is chic with some ambient Latin beats to help you unwind and enjoy the view.

From the viewpoint on the terrace, guests can relax enjoy some exquisitely prepared tapas while sampling a great cocktail menu serving up fresh fruit daiquiris and some of the best Mojitos around. This is an ideal spot to watch the magical Costa Rica sunsets.

Open also for breakfast, The Papaya Lounge offer traditional Gallo Pinto (Costa Rican rice and beans), French toast, pancakes, fruit bowl, as well as the huevo rancheros.

The Papaya Lounge and Restaurant is open for breakfast 7.30-10am and dinner 5-10pm.
