“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Wonderful, funky place for a drink while sitting out over the water. You even have the option of sitting in an inner tube in the water and being served there! Had the onion rings which were good, but the serving was small.

“Make sure you stop here!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is one of those places that you don't want to miss when visiting Ambergris Caye. Food is good, but the atmosphere is phenomenal!

“Best sunset view on Ambergris Caye”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We've been coming to AC for 7 years now and this is our favorite place to chill out and watch the sun set. The bar is set above the water, which affords you a gorgeous view of miles of coast. The place can get crowded for sunset but generally thins out shortly afterwards. During the day, there will be plenty of people lazing about in the inner tubes on the water, while buckets of beer are lowered to them.

The food here is generally fairly average (not bad, not great) with the exception of the smoked wings and beans. These items get a 16 hour visit in Palapa's smoker which gives them a flavor you won't get in too many places on the island. They really stand out amongst a more mundane menu.

“Awesome Place!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

This is just a fun place to hang out. The pulled pork sandwich is great, and the drinks are strong. But the best thing was buying a shirt to ensure everyone knew where I had been. Enjoy!
