The food and drinks is so convenient, it's a swim up bar and the bartenders know how to treat the guest, the drinks are so worth the price!!!

We stay at the Royal Palm, so this is about as convenient for us as it gets. Right on the beach. We go for breakfast, and they have your basics as well as some original creations. I gravitate towards the local dishes, and got the Johnny Wants Breakfast. It was amazing, and comes with warm Johnny Cakes :-).

Dessert was included and this year they... More

Was staying at Royal Palm. The location and convenience of this restaurant right on the beach should make it a huge hit with travelers. However the service we received this year was unacceptable and we were very disappointed. The staff tried very hard to apologize for whatever shortfalls that existed during our week. After two days of poor service, long... More

The Cabana restaurant serves a really good variety of food at reasonable prices. Handy to pop in when sunning on the beach. Friendly staff also.

We ate lunch and really enjoyed the food here. Service was good - they quite attentive. Being poolside was an added benefit.
