I recommend walking the short distance for the water quality and peace away from the port. However, only one worker actually smiled at us. I attempted to be nice to the chair rental guys, store workers, and bartenders to no avail. The dogs were the...More

Loved our lunch at Jack’s Shack. The jerk chicken was moist and flavorful. Service was spot on and even sampled a few drinks and the rum. Great stress free environment with a gorgeous beach.

We were told about this place by a local. For atmosphere it is a great place to go. Lots of our cruise passengers found this place too. Was crowded but not so crowded there was no place to sit. Music was playing, volleyball was ongoing,...More

Sorry your service was slow. We have had a few employees out sick lately. We don’t cater to adult drink customers any differently to soft drink customers. If you walk on the sand by the water it is easier. Come back again and we’ll make...More

Open air restaurant right on a beautiful beach close to the cruise dock. Food was excellent and served by a very friendly staff. Reasonably priced as well.

Pretty much the only reason people go here is for Topher and Calypso, the goldendoodles. However the water and beach here is way better than it is closer to the ship. The is no rocks, or sea weeds. The food and drinks are great, they...More
