Saw an ad for this and just had to stop by - it's such a beautiful location - the photos do not do it justice! Just a few hundred feet from the gulf and poolside, it's such a fantastic place to be when the weather is nice. I recommend going between 3-5p when they have some drink specials. They have... More

Just a short walk from our condo, bartenders are the bomb! Good service, drink and food. Usually tried to visit during happy hour each day = great specials.

The atmosphere is really nice with a great view. Service is very, very friendly and efficient. Drinks are fantastic! Food is fine, not the main draw though.

Great venue. View and setting can't be beat. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Kenny has been there for over 25 years. They pour a good drink. Many island style frozen concoctions are available. Nice bar food selection from the Thistle Lodge restaurant. Grouper sandwich is top notch. Everything is pricey but hey, somebody's got to pay for that awesome... More

stumbled here to kill time as we were too early to check into our condo on the property next door. Happy hour from 3-5 everyday, otherwise a bit on the pricey side. Bartender Casey was extremely polite and accomdating. Frozen drinks were solid (not literally, but like, super good, ya know?) although the food was ehh. Chicken tenders were sinewy,... More

This is the poolside bar and short-menu part of the Thistle Lodge at Casa Ybel. Limited item menu, done well (mostly "hand food" in baskets, with a few salads added). Pool and grounds of Casa Ybel make this an appealing venue. Service is on the slow side, but this appears to be a continuing kitchen problem; Coconuts' staff is attentive,... More

Just great service with refills just in time needed, great bar food. Great location, took a stroll along the beach afterwards and also... More

Loved that the adults could have a drink while the kids played in the pool. Happy Hour is a must!! Wonderul Mudslides and strawberry daqueries. Kids enjoyed the smoothie (vanilla was awesome)

Really great group working at Coconuts. Chris was fantastic with his always happy and funny attitude! Pretty good food. Only draw back is slightly high prices.
