Bongos is beachside bliss. Had both lunch and dinner here and enjoyed it. Fresh seafood, great flatbread and the drinks are refreshing and delicious. Servers are fabulous, can't say enough about how attentive and helpful they are. Dinner on the beach by candlelight truly a vacation dream come true!!

The food service was quite fast however there was only one barman working so drinks were quite slow. The waiter was apologetic and tried to be as quick as... More

Bongos is a lively beach front bar/restaurant, with live music most nights. The servers/bartenders are friendly and helpful.

Bongos is located at the Grand Plaza Hotel. It is right on the beach next to the pool deck. They have live music all day. It is fun, but just a typical hotel beach bar.

We had a great server who checked in us throughout our meal to ensure we had everything we needed. Prices were reasonable. Everyone had a good time. We are locals and this was... More
