We came here mid afternoon and sometimes evening for cocktails and snacks! The staff even set up a table and chairs inside the bar for me and my fiancé when it... More

Prices are very reasonable and the family who run the establishment are some of the nicest I have met on all my travels! Beer is cold, cocktails are strong and the food... More

The Cool Bar is set on a beautiful beach with a turquoise sea. The owners Duong and Un are very friendly and welcoming. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is very very good and very cheap. Drinks are at a good price whether it be beer, cocktails or G & T's. If you are staying at Centara Villas... More

what a fasntastic little bar, right on the beach, looks like it was made out of stuff the washed up on the last tide, brilliant. fantastic hosts, great for a luch time drink, or better still for some evening entertainment.

Me and my girlfriend were staying at Centara Villas and decided to walk along the beach to the Cool Bar after recommendations on Trip Advisor. Have to say we weren't disappointed. Great place to come for a few drinks or a bite to eat. The prices were a lot cheaper then Centara and the owners made everyone feel very welcome.... More
