Waterview fun

Laid back beach tiki bar open to the public. Nice bar staff, happy hour, decent drinks. . .what else could you want? Food is typical of what you'd expect at a beach bar.

This is the pool bar & grille at the gulf-front Casa Ybel Resort. We've been there several times, partly for convenience but mostly to avoid rowdy crowds elsewhere while on a family staycation. I have to admit we order the same selections every time; the lobster rolls and cheeseburgers are consistently very good.

My family and I have been visiting Sanibel Island and staying at Casa Ybel Resort for over 20 years. The best kept secret on Sanibel Island is "Coconuts Pool Bar & Grill" at Casa Ybel Resort. Overlooking the ocean, and adjacent to the pool, Coconuts has a wonderful lunch menu, to include a kids menu.......not to mention an extensive list... More

I am a local and I love stopping by Coconuts for happy hour! The views are great and the Wicked Dolphin drinks are amazing! The bartenders are always super friendly and great at recommending the perfect cocktail. I tell all the locals, tourists, and tiki bar fans to check out Coconuts! Thanks for the great service!

Came out to Coconuts with some friends who were visiting from out of state. This is a perfect spot to relax in the sun and have some delicious tropical drinks. The bartenders seem to enjoy their jobs and do a great job making sure you never need a thing. The tuna tacos are amazing, try them and a rumrunner and... More

We ate at Coconuts twice in the past week. It was convenient if you are staying at Casa Ybel and allowed us more pool/beach time. The servers were great. They were fun, attentive, and always there with a refill. We aren't big drinkers but they seemed to really work at engaging those sitting around the bar. The food was decent.... More

My fiancée and I had lunch at Coconuts. My fiancée was not feeling too well and asked the waitress if she could have the children's burger for the advertised price of $6. When my bill came I was charged $7 for the burger. When I inquired about the disparity, the waitress told me that she had done us a favor... More

Coconuts has simple but excellent fresh food and some great bartenders. The atmosphere can't be beat - friendly, happy, relaxed.

My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at Coconuts. The atmosphere is always great, hard to beat being steps away from the beach and the pool. Jessi, Casey and Kevin always take great care of us, their frozen drinks are the perfect accompaniment to a sunny FL afternoon. Gratuity is automatically added but you'll find yourself adding a little... More
