Daiquiri time. Every day to finish off your day on the beach. We sit and have a daiquiri each day 2 for 1. Watch the sun set and head back to our room

I ran across Johnny Cool's at Dover Beach. He makes the best frozen drinks on the island! I sat sipping my drink, watching the surf and listening to JAZZ. Nothing gets any better than that!

A very friendly and welcome place. Food is delicious. Table next to the ocean.. Service is excellent. Don't miss it. You will enjoy sightseeing on this beautiful island from Johnny Cool Jazz bar and restaurant, cooling with well mix cocktails and fresh island food. Jazz playing in backgraund, just make you touch the piece of Paradise.

Little beach bar. Good food, good selection of drinks. Drinks are not cheap, but the special of the day is cheaper. Good service.

I sent back a drink for not tasting anything like described on the cocktail menu, then found the full price of the drink on my check. The owner then proceeded to argue with me for several minutes about how the drink was made correctly and I had to pay for it. That's what happens when you've got a captive audience... More
