The Palapa Bar & Grill was walking distance from our resort, The Phoenix. The menu was varied and the drinks were cold. Overall, worth a stop especially if you want to drink while floating in an inner tube!

The bar is certainly fun and full of good people watching and people having fun. We ate lunch and the food was adequate bar/pub food. Went back for cocktails a 2nd time. Fun place!

The atmosphere here is pretty excellent. Beautiful view over the water and at night they have lights under the dock so you can see the fish swim through. We saw quite a few barracudas and rays. Drinks are pricey and you are definitely paying for...More
