Arrived around 9:30 and got perfect seats by the water. 2 chairs with an umbrella for $20. Luckily no cruise ships in town so it wasn't crowded either! The water isn't as calm because it's in the Atlantic side but there is a great breeze which makes it perfect for water sports like kite surfing, wind surfing or parasailing! Had... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Kakao. They have a big dining area, cabanas with individual tables, and a beach area with many lounge chairs and umbrellas. The food at the beach bar is good and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly. The beach is beautiful, and is a great place for swimming. Unlike Karakter (which we had visited earlier in the... More

Did our traditional 1 day trip to the beaches at Orient Bay while on the island. This time landed at the stretch called Kakao Beach. Orient is a beautiful crescent shaped beach. Lots of activities on the water (ski do’s, floating trampolines, parachute rides, etc). Some sections have been carved into territories like Kakao. You can rent a lounge and... More

The first meal we had there was the best ever, we were late after 3pm, we enjoyed it so much that we went back a few days later, but then at about 1pm, they were busy and the food was average. The service was always excellent and very friendly.

We had lunch here twice and had a different pizza each time, perfect for lunch and they were $12. Each time we had 2 slices left so we put them in the cooler for the next day and ate them at breakfast - very good! Next time we'll have dinner here - beautiful views of the water and it was... More

Imagine great food with friendly fast service with Orient Beach in your view and that is Kakao. They have many unique items that are all good. Must do dining when at Orient. Or just kick back with a tropical drink on the water.
