There are two Chris's there and the loudest one is the funniest. You can sit there all day and be entertained.. The food is great and they have new flat breads that are very tasty. They make a great drink and with a rum floater it's a home run.

The pool bar serves lunches poolside witch I really like and they have entertainment on the pool deck on most Sundays. It's a really beautiful bar, right on the beach and I try to go during the off-season when they don't have a lot of tourists here. Their bartenders are great.

Dropped into Casa Ybel resort on West Gulg Drive for a cocktail @ Coconuts pool bar. Received a very warm & friendly reception from Kevin the barman - who was both informative & welcoming. Super spot for an end of afternoon or pre-dinner drinks by the pool. Somewhere we'll definitely use again...

We have had lots of excellent food on this island, but not at Coconuts. The cheeseburgers were very greasy and way over priced.

We always have a great time at Coconuts! Chris and the entire crew just allow yourself to have fun. The food is great, especially the Blackened Grouper. Drinks make it even better. Don't miss out on Coconuts.

Coconuts never disappoints... Some of the friendliest bartenders you will ever meet, ready to chat and give you tips on things to do. Also, they certainly know how to make a drink, which is not easy to come by these days. Despite being relatively small in size, the bar makes up for it by being the center of events at... More

We have eaten here many times ! The menu and the food are very basic but the atmosphere is sublime ! Really cannot rave about the food inside or outside . It's really like an upscale beach snack food bar. I think sitting around the bar and drinking is the best option . Many times they have live music which... More
