This beach bar was a nice place to hang when relaxing on Jolly Beach. The beach itself was so beautiful. The bar offers half priced drinks during happy hour but the regular price drinks are not bad. Overall, this is a great place to enjoy...More

great atmosphere, good beach food, and a great place to get a drink and something to eat especially if you have just been diving with Jolly Divers which is next door. Popular with locals as well

Before you go diving, after diving, waiting for your taxi, grab a spot at the bar, or one on beach. Nice people, friendly casual beach bar. Sandy.........Phoenix Arizona, USA

We rented a villa in Jolly Harbour, so Castaways became our beach bar; the perfect place to order a drink and watch the sun set. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. We also had a lunch, shrimp tika wrap and spicy jerk chicken and an...More

We stumbled across Castaways looking for somewhere for dinner one evening. As we were outside of peak season, the place was quiet but the good delicious. The menu is mainly made up of Indian food (with some other dishes) and whilst this wasn't what we...More

We were staying at the Jolly Beach Resort but we walked over for a couple of drinks and appetizers to break up the monotony of the all-inclusive. Drinks and food were really good, but know that you will be charged 15% tax and 10% service...More

Castaways is a little piece of tropical paradise. The drinks are strong and the beach is soft. We rented an umbrella for $10. We found the buffet lunch to be well done with a small but good variety of food. The only negative is the...More

Hi, we live in Barrie, Ontario and are going to the Jolly Harbor villas for the month of March. I have been checking a lot of the different restaurants and viewing menus etc and checking the pricing. Can you tell me what the pricing is like at Castaways and did you pay with US or EC? I have seen mixed reviews for this restaurant but the appeal to us is that it is on the beach and a short walk from our unit. What is the happy hour like price wise? Thanks very much
