Before you go diving, after diving, waiting for your taxi, grab a spot at the bar, or one on beach. Nice people, friendly casual beach bar. Sandy.........Phoenix Arizona, USA

We rented a villa in Jolly Harbour, so Castaways became our beach bar; the perfect place to order a drink and watch the sun set. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. We also had a lunch, shrimp tika wrap and spicy jerk chicken and an...More

We stumbled across Castaways looking for somewhere for dinner one evening. As we were outside of peak season, the place was quiet but the good delicious. The menu is mainly made up of Indian food (with some other dishes) and whilst this wasn't what we...More

We were staying at the Jolly Beach Resort but we walked over for a couple of drinks and appetizers to break up the monotony of the all-inclusive. Drinks and food were really good, but know that you will be charged 15% tax and 10% service...More

Castaways is a little piece of tropical paradise. The drinks are strong and the beach is soft. We rented an umbrella for $10. We found the buffet lunch to be well done with a small but good variety of food. The only negative is the...More

We did a Disney Cruise Port adventure. Umbrellas were US$10 extra. I didn't mind paying for an umbrella but a lot of them are broken, don't stay open, have rips in them. Basically they've not replace them in any years even though I'm sure the...More

The guys in our group went over for a few drinks from the resort. It is an average bar scene. They did have a bonfire and band on Friday but we did not go.

We visited Castaways as part of a cruise excursion. The beach was beautiful, water was calm and clear blue. You had to pay extra for an umbrella but it was worth the $10. You can swim or walk along the white sand beach. They had...More

It really just depends on who you rent from. We rented from Castaway. You go to the bar and pay there. Their chairs and umbrellas were much nicer. We paid for the umbrella and the chairs were free. Not sure if that was how... More

Hi, we live in Barrie, Ontario and are going to the Jolly Harbor villas for the month of March. I have been checking a lot of the different restaurants and viewing menus etc and checking the pricing. Can you tell me what the pricing is like at Castaways and did you pay with US or EC? I have seen mixed reviews for this restaurant but the appeal to us is that it is on the beach and a short walk from our unit. What is the happy hour like price wise? Thanks very much
