Currently staying at the Centara Villas but fancied a change of scenery so wandered down the beach to Cool Bar and I'm very glad we did! The appetisers we had were really yummy and fresh and the strawberry daquiri was so good! The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We're going back tomorrow :)

We walked to the cool bar along the beach as we were staying at the nearby Centara Villas hotel. There's a huge choice of drinks and a good number of non alcoholic ones too. All the smoothies are made up from blended fruit, not ice and fruit syrup. We ate a load of appetisers here as weren't rally hungry enough... More
