The food was great; most delicious, tender, blackened tuna I've ever had. The bartenders are full of life and always wearing smiles. I'll definitely be going back.

Coconuts is provisioned by the Thistle Lodge, and offers the usual adult beverages (including some concoctions of their own creation) along with a reasonable selection of salads, sandwiches and sidebar fare. They have upped their game since we were here a year ago. Spectacular poolside ambience literally about 50 paces from the Gulf. Staff is friendly, particularly so Chris and... More

I have been to Coconuts several times recently and have a wonderful time always! Friendly staff and great drinks, combined with the beach just steps away makes for my favorite stop on the island. Try the tuna tacos, they are great. Can't wait for my next trip out to SANIBEL!

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
