We tried to go here while on Sanibel due to the great reviews. However, we did not realize this is the poolside bar at a hotel/resort. And it closes at 7. So we didn't get to try it :(

Sanibel has a lot of great locations many located facing the beach but the best place for relaxation and a really great drink at the poolside is Colada Cabana. Barman Todd brings quality drinks you might not find in any more luxurious location or Bar of a five star Hotel. Cool and relaxed athmosphere located directly facing the beach. We... More

Fun and still on the beach! On such a perfect day we didn't want to spend any time indoors, so this fit the bill. My husband got to watch football on their TV (the bartender immediately asked what game we wanted to watch), and I got to relax in the sunshine and chat with another couple. He had a burger... More

I am a big fan of pool bars and the Colada Cabana is probably the best one on Sanibel, our bartender Heather was great to talk to and great to look at, the drinks were delicious and reasonably priced

My husband and I stayed at the Sanibel Inn for our honeymoon in Oct., 09. The day we got in, we were so tired from the flight and the hype of getting married the day before. We went and sat down at the Colada Cabana where I had my first "Strawberry Shortcake". My husband ordered the "Rum Punch". Todd was... More

Do yourself a big favor! Stop by Colada Cabana for the best Bushwacher, BBC and Pain Killer north of St. John, USVI. FYI- If you are up for a little extra- ask for Pain Killer 2. Food is perfect for the venue- Grilled Fish & Burgers. Great place for kids too- they can play in the sand with complimentary sand... More
