I think I might be getting old as usually like this sort of thing having worked in Jamaica for 3 months marketing Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, but alas not too impressed with this as a bit frantic for me and idea of queuing in a very disorganised way with paper plate on one hand and plastic beer glass in other...

Don't go if you're not into crowds. Views at sunset are second to none but you'll have to jockey for a spot to take a photo. The steel drum band rocked this place the entire night! They had so much talent and energy and were incredibly entertaining to watch. Food was good, get two drinks st a time when you... More

Went with our children on the Sunday night for calypso and reggae. What a great atmosphere. Prices for the BBQ were a bit pricey, but there was a good selection and you get a lot of food. The view over Nelson's Harbour is wonderful. Really enjoyed the music and the party after the sun went down.

Being told we couldn't miss this place by many people here in Antigua, my friend and I thought we'd definitely go and were excited actually to see what it would bring. Yes the view is amazing for about 10 minutes but after that there really isn't much else to call home about. It was full of drunks (as the alcohol... More

We had this planned on our recent visit based on the reviews and we took a shuttle from the hotel which you had to stay for 4 hours. We tried to leave early but could not find someone to share a cab. (cabs are very expensive on the island) So calling it what it is - it is a drunkfest.... More

Apart from the views there isn't a great deal to see or do at this site during the low-season, aprt from Sunday evenings. Apparently on a Sunday evening you'll get local food and entertainment to add to the appeal of this location.

Definitely go for the sunset and the view. The steel band is AMAZING. That's it. It was very crowded, which could be fun sometimes, but not when there isn't enough places to sit, and the walking area is very uneven and even dangerous in some places.
