We spend one day a year on Pinel Island, which is a tiny strip of land 5 minutes boat ride from St. Martin, and it's my favorite day of the year! The food & service, including drinks & snacks at the beach, are phenomenal!

Went to Pinel, got great loungers and had a wonderful funny servier for drinks all day. Did not eat there.

This was our 7th year in St Maarten and Le Karibuni. Great food, friendly staff. We went every day for lunch to Karibuni for 6 days and never got bored with the food.

Hello, We are planning a trip to St. Maarten in December and would like to go to Pinel Island. I hear a lot about the restaurant being pricey, but is there a menu to look at it or could some past visitors give me an idea on prices? What might an adult family of four expect as a ballpark figure?
