Cool spot on one of the nicest beaches in the world. Great food, great smiles and a chill atmosphere. Calm waters allow a family friendly hang out and the beach volleyball net out front gives it another appeal. Well done!

This place has the perfect location to do a booming trade.....unfortunately the service is never with a smile and it just seemed like they couldn't be bothered to serve us! We went there for a bottle of beer most nights to watch the sunset on the beach but also visited there for lunch and once for breakfast. The lunch (Greek... More

This little bar is on Jolly Beach just steps from Tranquility Bay Resort and Jolly Beach Resort. The food is very nice with a Caribbean flair. The staff are what makes this place though. They are friendly, outgoing and do all they can to please. We don't have one bad thing to say. For beach chairs and umbrellas, be sure... More

Such a great location and friendly staff. The food in general is good but a little pricey for a beach bar.You get discount if staying at Tranquility Bay.Happy hour is from 4.30 for 2 hours and sometimes followed by two for price of one. Busy at this time and for sunsetting.

We are used to expensive beach restaurants but this one is really pushing it! The service is so slow, the food average and the tip is already in the bill. We were forgotten about on 3 occasions (I suppose this is our fault for going back!) The waitress kind of laughed and said,

Its a nice place for a nice bite in this beach. Avoid the cantina next to it, you will get rip off. Castaways offers some fresh fish options, we had fresh clams and fresh mahi mahi. We enjoyed the meal. However It is pricey.

Ate at this restaurant 2 times in our stay. The first time I had the jerk shrimp (not their best dish. Each bite felt like the raw spices were thrown on the shrimp after the fact) and lobster (very tasty). Was not crazy about the price, but I was on vacation so I splurged. The second time, I tried the... More
