Walked right onto their deck from the pink sands Beach for a delicious lunch overlooking the beautiful beach. Reasonably priced, great food and atmosphere.

“WOAW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

One could not think of a better place to go.The Manager, Mark Kitchen has his act very well together and makes sure clients get personal attention. The food is inventive and well presented and the Chef is a master at producing yummy things. If one adds a view to die for and a couple of excellent mojitos...Definitely THE place to go on Harbour Island. Even the prices are reasonable compared to elsewhere. But what makes the difference is the sense of being really looked after without the usual HI's bling! Try Toya for a waitress and you'll get some no nonsense humour thrown in.

“Excellent food & cocktails overlooking one of the world's best beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The Blue Bar is beautifully positioned overlooking the breathtaking Pink Sands Beach and is at the front of Pink Sands Hotel at Harbour Island. My friend and I were greeted by Mark Kitchen, the hotel manager and later by the excellent chef. We had first class Mojitos, followed by delicious coconut shrimps, chicken caesar salads and spring rolls. Don't forget the superb sweet-potato fries! The menu is extensive and reasonably priced for Harbour Island. Look out for Toya, the effervescant waitress - she will make your visit memorable with her humour and attention to detail.

“I only had lunch and dinner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

I last visited the Pink Sands in 2006. It was lovely. This time we stayed at the Coral Beach Club but visited Pink Sands for a lunch and a dinner. The food and service had declined sharply. Warm white wine at lunch. Terrible service at dinner combined with food that I felt came from an hour under a heat lamp. The prices were high and what you received was low. Never again. We did find the recovery meal at the nearby Dunmore a saviour. The decor, the staff, the food and the price point are all better. Pink Sands is living on borrowed time and needs a complete do over including the non responsive management.
