Hidden in the shade of the hotel's palapa, the midday sounds of pop and independent music along with the color of the pool inspire the name of the nearby bar, Blue Bar. The Blue Bar serves cocktails, natural juices, top shelf liquors, a selection of fine Mexican wine, popular beers and unique tequilas. But if there is one drink worth recommending, Travel Agent was told it's the hotel's signature mojito made with Havana Club 3 Anos. 

The kitchen’s team shifts to traditional Mexican classics like pork tacos, three types of ceviche and lobster tails on the grill and favorites like steak arrachera, fresh fish and paella. Cuban desserts like tres leches and guava cheesecake are also offered.

Also, be sure to tell Millennials looking to party about Cuba Night. Every Saturday night is Cuba Night, and this Cuban party at CasaSandra is said to be pretty epic as roast pork, mojitos, live music and traditional Cuban recordings are all on the menu. Travel Agent was told that this is ‘the’ Saturday night hot spot on Holbox Island for Millennials with a taste for nightlife. 

CasaSandra is an oceanfront property including 18 suites and one villa. It is located just two hours drive and ferry ride from Cancun.
