My husband and I visited Karacter nearly every day of our week-long trip in July 2013, whether it be just for drinks or for a wonderful gourmet dinner. This is a high-class beach bar, with very fair prices. There is nothing better than enjoying live jazz music underneath the stars, while sipping on a fresh passion fruit daiquiri (virgin for me - this time!). The wait staff and owner are wonderful, and even invited us to dine with them so that we could learn more about life on the island.

Needless to say, we will be back. Don't miss the school bus parked on the beach - you'll be pleasantly surprised!

What a wonderful spot. They use china plates and real glassware at a beach bar! The food was wonderful, especially the bitterballen and the crab cakes.

We enjoyed two very nice meals at Karakter. We walked over from our hotel along the beach (based on the recommendation of our hotel owner). The staff is friendly and the drinks are amazing! I had the vodka mint drink and it was amazing and fresh. I also had one of the fruit smoothies and it was fresh and delicious. I loved the coconut shrimp and the beef carpaccio!

It was a relaxing day on the beach. The staff was very responsive and the food good. The white sand beaches and the blue water made the scenery even better.

Went Friday evening for their topper specials. Between the five of us we ordered most of the combo's available and shared. Great staff, great food, nice location. Not advertized, mostly word of mouth. Worth the visit....
