After trying this drink all over the island we had a great one. Had a great dinner of grilled local fish, fantastic drinks and a sunset to match. Cathey & Sapphire are wonderful. This is hidden gem amongst throngs of touristy hotels.

Excellent atmosphere. Too bad everything else kind of ruined it. The food was pretty good albeit very overpriced for what it was. The service was completely subpar. Never asked for another service of drinks. Barely made eye contact. No one smiles there. They Didn't want...More
