“you have got to visit this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2009

We were staying at couples swept away and hired big ship tours to take us to Y/S falls, appleton rum and pelican bar. This place was so nuch fun, Big ships arranged a boat to take us out, we had lunch which was fresh caught fish and rice, with several beers. You can swim while you wait for your food. There were 2 other couples there who were staying at Jakes, one from LA the other from Brazil. They place looks like it will fall down but it seems secure! By the way, say hi to Floyds fiance as she does alot of work and gets no glory!

“ONCE AGAIN BACK TO THE PELICAN BAR!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2009

We were just in Negril June 13-20th and loved, loved, loved it. Especially loved the Pelican Bar (review below). Loved everything so much hubby and I decided on a whim to cash in some points and go back September 2-7th.

What trip back to Negri would be complete without going to the Pelican Bar? Since it was low season, I mean low season, us and another couple we met at Xtabi in the cottage next to ours went together and us 4 were the only ones.

It was great having the place to ourselves. Walked out into the water, saw gorgeous pelicans and a beautiful, large sting ray. Since I arrived back in Negril all I could think about was getting back to Pelican Bar and having their amazing lobster. I was not disappointed.

Can't recommend enough if you are visiting Negril, stop by Floyd's Pelican Bar for a truly unique experience.

“Coolest Bar I'VE ever been to!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2009

We went out to PB after YS falls (around 1:30 or so??) and water (and wind) was pretty rough so no real swimming, which was kind of disappointing. Floyd was great, and his lobster was fantastic. Very reasonably priced as well. A truly unique and amazing Jamaican experience. Bring a sharpie to write your name :)

“What a chill place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2009

We went to the Pelican Bar a few weeks ago and loved it! Floyd himself came to pick us up on shore and drove us out to the bar. There were a few others there, some in the bar and some snorkeling around the bar. We signed our names inside the bar, got a drink and chilled. At first the kids complained that we were taking them to a bar, but when we got there they were very excited to explore the rocky area, snorkel and have a Ting. They loved it as much as the adults! This was a great addition to any excursion in the area. We did YS Falls and the Pelican Bar that day. It was a very relaxing day and I'm so glad we went there!

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2009

We loved Floyd's! The food was fantastic, the view was great, the ambiance was cool. The people that ran the bar and drove the boats to get to the bar were excellent as well.

The place looks like it will just fall over, but it's surprisingly sturdy. People like to sign the interior of the building, and there's even a UNC hat hanging up. I hope it doesn't get too big or filled with resorts on the southern coast - that was a good scene.
