Good drinks, good service

Food for Coconuts is prepared inside the Thistle Inn. A great restaurant, and only steps away. We ordered salads and beer so I can't vouch for the mixed drinks. The service was quick and friendly though.

My boyfriend and I found this place while driving around Sanibel Island on vacation recently. We were hungry and looking for a restaurant and this place popped up on Trip Advisor, so we pulled off the road. For starters, we arrived mid-afternoon, and discovered Coconuts seemed to be just the poolside bar for a rental property. We didn't have very... More

Prompt, super friendly warm service. Good casual dining next to the beautiful gulf. Nice menu, with good assortment of items. Enjoyed the clams, the lobster roll, and a number of other items.

Service is wonderful, all the bar tenders and servers are really nice and always seem to be smiling and having fun b/c they are enjoying what they're doing. They always make me feel special evertime I visit. I would suggest this place to anyone. I just wish I would of tried the place sooner.

Tons of food options (fresh tuna tacos!), drinks, and music all pool and oceanside! We love to sit at the bar and then round up some volleyball players and make great friends. For a more relaxing time with family we get a table and listen to music. We go everyday while staying on Sanibel!

When you visit the visit the Ft Myers, head to Sanibel Island visits Coconuts for an afternoon. Small bar by the pool with awesome drinks and a very friendly staff. Ask for a Rum Runner, and sit enjoy the lite breeze there. They also have a menu for food also. The beach is short walk from your seat.

We were hanging out on the beach and decided to go here for lunch. The sandwiches and drinks were great. It was a beautiful place to eat and the service was outstanding. I have been sitting at work wishing I was sitting there. It was a fun place for lunch.

I recently took a day to go relax out on Sanibel and decided to go check out the poolbar (Coconuts) found at the Casa Ybel resort on Sanibel Island near Ft. Myers Beach because someone recommended it to me. 1st of all the bar itself was a cute little bar next to the pool, but the area was beautiful especially... More
