We go to St Maarten every year and never tried
this place. Trip Advisor listed good reviews so
we went, wound up going four times in two week's.
Loved the beach the food and the service. Can't
wait for next year. D.M.

Great there early when they open around 10 or you won't get a chair.

Obviously people have heard of this beach bar/restaurant - they even have someone in the parking lot to help folks find a place for their car. The service was good even with the rather large noon day crowd. The food was above average. We thought that by arriving by 10:30 we might win a couple of seats on the beach with an umbrella but wow, our fellow vacationers were way way ahead of use so we accepted the offered picnic table on the terrace overlooking the bay and enjoyed ourselves, the food, the drinks and the active crowd of ALL ages. Worth a trip.

Been to Karakter twice (on seperate trips) and each time did not dissapoint! It's a School Bus Bar right on Simpson Bay and it's a great place to relax and soak up the sun. They have lounge chairs and bean bag chairs right on the beach and there's no charge to use if you buy food/drinks.

For tapas we had the Bruschetta with Tomato-Caper Salsa & Bruschetta with Goat Cheese, Pecan Nuts & Honey, Crab Cakes (with Pineapple Salsa and Chili Sauce) and Coconut shrimp (with a Worcester-lime mayonnaise). Everything was so fresh and delicious! Had a couple Vodka Min Tings which were also amazing.

It's the perfect place to have some cocktails and excellent food while enjoying the beautiful view of Simpson Bay. Definitely plan to go back on our next trip!

We happened upon this great bar/restaurant when we stayed at Horney Toad Guesthouse this past January. What fun we had. There was a bonfire right on the beach, and we enjoyed eating in beach chairs right near the water! The waitress was so much fun.
