    All right, so I'm looking for a cool club to end the night right !!

    Of course the first that comes in mind is the Blue Parrot, but I've read horrible reviews on trip advisor... knowing tripadvisor... I'd rather ask you girls, for those who know Playa, did you go there ? What did you think ?

    I also heard about the Bali - they have private areas that can be reserved an open bar for 35$ which I think is cool - but I would have preferred something on the beach... same question, do you know it, what do you think ?

    Any advise is welcome ! I'm looking preferrably to a place where I can reserve an area - or several tables - and if possible on the beach... Thanks for your help !

      I would recommend Zensi for something chic, or Fusion for something more casual/rustic. Both are on the beach on 8th and 4th I believe.

        Thanks...

        Actually... think I went to Fusion... is it this place with low wooden chairs and tables sitting in the sand, latin orchestra (on Saturday) and fire dancers ? Can they accomodate big groups ?

          I just got back from my wedding at the El Dorao Royale in R.M. and after the wedding we just headed to Playa for whatever kind of fun. We ran into "Karabar". So much fun! I don't know if your into Hookahs...but my little group loved it. Sorry it's not actually on the beach, but just thought I'd share this with you anyway for consideration. I think you could reserve tables if you ask maybe. It's like a 2 min. walk from the Blue Parrot. Hope this helps if anything. Good Luck! Either way your going to love Playa Del Carmen.

            Yes that's it. Big groups? 40 or 50 I think, they have a beach area as well as a deck area. Maybe 80 people.

              I had a blast at the Blue Parrot, it was great to dance on the dance floor that sits next to the ocean. I'm also an avid TripAdvisor reader, but don't agree with half of the reviews.

              Another great night club is Santanera - that place rocks! www.santanera.com

                We are getting married in Tulum and then going to Retro after the reception. Retro plays songs from the 70's, 80's & 90's if that's what you're looking for. It's located on 4th Street between 5th Avenue and the beach. If you are walking down 5th Avenue heading south, you will turn left on 4th toward the beach. You'll see Retro on the right.

                  We are also getting married in Tulum and have thought about going out afterwards as well. Is Retro in Playa or Tulum? Will you all take a bus or vans? I'm still trying to figure out logistics and looking to see what other brides are doing. By the way , congratulations!

                    Just a few comments regarding the Nightlife-Dancing Bars:

                    Alux Cave - Best to take a cab here or you might not find it. Sometimes on the weekends, they turn the cave into a nightclub, which is a rather unique way to spend the evening. Be sure to check out the sexy lounge area deep into the cave.

                    8lue Parrot - Always one of the more active places to go both early and late evening, especially if you like to dance out under the stars. Most of us avoid this place for personal reasons!!

                    Ceilito Lindo - This club is on the second floor and is primarily a club for younger latino locals looking to dance to rock music played through a great sound system. The dance floor is big, the crowd is large and the music continues almost til dawn. You won't see many tourist here.

                    Playa69 - A gay bar set back a bit in a corridor on the west side of the 5th Avenue. You can easily spot their small lit sign at night when they're open.

                    Fa at Siesta Fiesta - Always a great place to catch a live band in a lively but comfortable environment. Very tiny dance area.

                      Thanks for all the info. everyone. I really wanna check out The Blue Parrot. I think we may go to Coco Bongo, Senor Frogs, Carlos n Charlies, and maybe Margaritaville in Cozumel.
