As good a place as any to get a drink and cool down. There wasn't anything special about it. Can't recommend a better place either as it was the only bar we tried.

Woody's was sold a year or 2 ago. That being said, the business has changed. It's never open after 6pm, like it used to! No signage on the locked and chained gate indicating hours. The music is gone. TV is gone. The whole CANADIAN atmosphere...More

Arrived at 4pm no other customers. No TV or music playing atmosphere matches the business Dead. Had a couple over priced beers $2,50 a piece. Not worth a return visit. Better food and value next door at Coco Blue.

Went there with the whole family. No complaints. Club sandwich is decent, drinks are cold! All in all, good place to be if you want to get away from buffet style setting of all inclusive. Bring your old Canadian sport jerseys if you go, plenty...More
