We were docked in Ocho Rios and after walking around we decided to head back here. The kids enjoyed the private beach and being away from being pestered. With access to the pool as well as the beach it catered for both of my kids....More

It was packed. The food was just ok. The drinks were way overpriced. It was super hot, which made it worse, because it was so packed.

This place is insanely busy. Service is ok but the place is not that clean. The menus are falling apart and there were several items on menu out of stock. The restrooms were horrible. I suggest another restaurant.

This is a nice little bar in the shopping district of Ocho Rios with a nice little beach and good music. Just be prepared to spend a lot on drinks. One small margarita on the rocks will cost you almost $10.00 before tip. I would...More

One end of the pool is shallow for entering the bar area and has steps. There's a ladder which goes up the side in the deep end by the slide.
