Nightly entertainment is awesome. They have bon fires on Friday nights outside. Food was pricey, but hey your on holiday. Enjoy some conch fritters and a waldaldi beer:)

Although in a great spot there was some confusion over who owned the chairs and umbrellas with some locals jumping on you when you approached this place. This seemed to cause some ill feeling with the bar. Walking through the bar some people were shouting at us which intimidated some members of our party when wanting to use the facilities.... More

This restaurant was located on the beach near our hotel. They have chairs and umbrellas that you can rent for the beach. My daughter enjoyed their virgin Pina colada and I would get a passion fruit smoothie. We'd eat there daily for lunch. The first day we had ribs... They were ok. The remaining days we opted for cheeseburgers and... More

We ate here our first night but weren't overly impressed. We had a long day of travel and it was close so we thought we'd check it out. The food was good enough for a beach bar setting but was overly priced for what you got. They did have a good kids menu which was a bonus for us. They... More

Went with my family for lunch as we're staying at tranquility bay resort and didn't want to go far. This was the closest alternative. Two shrimps on two skewers for $10. The Bahama Mama drink had little to no alcohol. Very disappointing all together. Honestly won't recommend.

Nice place to have a reasonable breakfast and coffee , if it is good enough for the locals , it is good for a holiday maker to eat and enjoy the food, close to beach , very close to Jolly Beach Resort

We went to this establishment several times. The food was good, the view was amazing and the entertainment and beach bonfire amazing however the bartenders ruined our experience. Their attitute very poor, it you didn't tip what they want they were rude and then totally ignored you when you went to order again. The owner needs to hire better staff... More

Stopped by Castaways on our first morning in Antigua. Nice coffee and rum punch for a beach joint, but service was a little flat and otherwise not much to say. Perhaps it livens up in the evening!

The food was good and the service was also good one good thing about them is that they have wifi and for the people staying at hotel it closer then going to front desk. You have to buy a drink in order to get the password.

We stayed in Jolly Harbour over Xmas & New Year's and usually spent alot of time on the beach by this bar/restaurant. It is very busy when cruise ships are in port. We had a few drinks, which tasted watered-down, yet strong. Might be the mix they put in. I had a pina colada served in a small plastic cup... More
