This is a nice place to relax and enjoy the view, get some food and drinks, and even do a little shopping. But the bar behind the beach can get pretty crazy, and its more than $12 for a burger and fries! I guess that's...More

We went here on a booze cruise to Dunn's River Falls. We had a blast! The food here was good and they had a water slide going through the restaurant, which was quite fun!

It is touristy, but definately a nice place to begin to relax. The food is decent, the wait staff is good. Very loud but an excellent place to begin at. Just remember you will only meet mostly other tourists here.

Fun atmosphere, food is just ok. I am sure this place is better in the evening. Cool to see iguana's roaming around the restaurant balconies.

What can we say.....a little expensive for drinks. We bought t-shirts that got us a free Margarita. Seating kind of sucked too. Service wasn't very good either.

Great food, tunes and drinks. A bit in the expensive side but well worth it. Loved the cocktails, lagerittas and lava shrimp. Fun on the beach and slide into the pool
