“Tired”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

To be honest this was a bit of a disappointment. Aside from a few random relics and shooting schedules it looked very much like a run down resort and was rammed full of tourists. The photos make it look better than it was!!!

“Interesting but looking a bit tired!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We travelled by the hotel taxi from Buccament Bay on our way to Dark View Falls. It was fun seeing where the Pirates of the Caribbean had been filmed and seeing the props. I checked one of the coffins for size! There was a place there for refreshments but we didn't stop for any as we had our own refreshments in the car. It was a very pretty location and you could take some lovely photos there.

“Pirates of The Caribbean inspires...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This park is located on the leeward (west) coast of St. Vincent, near Wallilabou Bay and the site of the Film Pirates of the Caribbean. It is also close to the centre of Barrouallie, a fishing village known for its harvesting of Black Fish, and Cumberland Bay, one of the best known anchorages on the island.
Facilities here included parking, gazebo, benches, visitor centre, restaurant, bar, and pedestrian bridge.

The restaurant offers delicious local dishes, iced cold beers and marvellous view on the bay.

Do not expect anything grandiose like Hollywood, more like a simplistic nice anchorage area that has taken the opportunity of this newly acquired attention brought to the area due to the famous Captain Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp) from the Pirates of The Caribbean.
The local distillery was also inspired to bring a new dark rum named after Sparrow that is more refined and flavourful than the very strong clear Sunset version.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

I liked that I was somewhere Johnny Depp was. I disliked that I did not get to stay long.

“Diamond in the rough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

An awesome spot. Best true rum punch I've ever had. Mmm, nutmeg! Site is a bit in disrepair. Sad because it has SO much potential.
