“Very disappointed after reading other reviews.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Small tappas portions, not flavorful, expecting much more. Expensive for what we got as far as taste, size of portion.

“beautiful tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We walked from the Pelican Resort , which is quite a hike but worth it. When we arrived all but one of the tables were full and the place was buzzing. However, we were served quickly and by very friendly staff. The place had a lull around 8pm, I think people had come early to have a meal before the sun was down and watch it set, then left and the later crowd was just coming in about 8.30pm. The food was beautifully presented.

“A nice walk down the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Walked there on our first evening on Simpson Beach. The service was a bit slow but we didn't mind as it was nice sitting listening to the music and the waves. The creole grouper was tasty and I always appreciate good beans and rice with fried sweet plantains.

“Karakter Beach Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Karakter beach is located along side the airport. Limited seating on the beach but well worth the drive. excellant food and drinks.
You get the chairs and umbrella with the purchase of drins or food. Staff is really friendly and accomadating. Fun place to be!!! We make sure that we get there every year once or more!!!
Can be little noisy when the palnes are coming in or leaving.
