“Great beach bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

When you sit on the sand in this bar and listen reggae or live band, or watch firedancers and sip your drink or beer for reasonable price, you feel you at right moment on the right place. Babylon is beautiful bar right on the beach, full of locals as well as tourists and smiling staff. There are some craft "hippie" shops next to with nice items.
Unfortunately cafe, which is opposite (close to the street, and I am not sure if this cafe is part of Babylon - i think that no) is totally reverse. Bar staff no smile, any kindness, sunglasses all the time, say no hello, say no thank you. Cafe staff is very bored by their job.

“Babylon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

A great bar- day and night. Right on the beach. Excellent live music, and a wonderful DJ- fire dancers come every evening, and there are a pair of lovely little shops at the front of the bar--away from the beach, for those who want things quieter. The cook is Tamil, wonderful guy, makes a great curry, and anything else. The burgers from the grill are fantastic. Loved the drinks and the prices are right! Wonderful group of people working at Babylon-- felt like a family..
