We did not get to explore the beach much as we were on a tour and spent most of our time taking photos at the entrance and at the gift shops on site. We did see jet skiing and parasailing which we will absolutely try next time. The waves were a bit strong but not sure if this is a regular everyday current.

If you are looking for a place to have lunch or just relax at the bar then Kontiki is a place you have to visit. Located right in the middle of Orient Beach you will have great views of the ocean. If you are just there for the day they have very comfortable beach chairs and you are not right on top of each other. Kontiki has a large deck, sitting area and bar where you can be out of the sun. Great food and drinks. We stopped for lunch this time just to relax a while. We ate at the bar. The Bartender was friendly and well trained. We tried some of the French dishes this time. We always try to order something different. While we were eating the people across from us ordered something we have never tried so we know what we are going to try on our next visit. They have clean nice bathrooms, good atmosphere and a open lounge area. Highly recommended and will be back.

Good French quality lunch. Great hospitality: waitresses were extremely helpful and well prepared. Nice digestive with home made rum. Price is relatively high

Went on a day trip from cruise. Asked the cab driver to drop us off at Kontiki -it is right in the middle of the beach. It is far from the clothing optional part, and generally was just like a regular beach - fine for families. Kontiki rents chairs with umbrellas at slightly more than others - $25 for two chairs + umbrella. Those around offer that at $20. But - location excellent, quality of chairs and cushions superb, and the facilities are more upscale and very clean - there is a nice lady cleaning the restrooms all day (save a few $ for tips for her). Wifi is included, but was so slow and weak as to be useless. Watersports available for $. We ate at the restaurant - excellent food, similar to what you would get in France. Prices not cheap = but remember the usual gratuity is if anything 10% - and they don't add on to what is listed in the price. Service is great - they are passionate about their facilities, and about the food - including how everything is cooked and which ingredients used! This was easily the very best way to spend a day in the Caribbean - and we have been to a lot of places in the Caribbean. Will definitely go back.

Good bartender at the bar makes fantastic frozen mojito, long hair Franch gentelman ( sorry I forgot his name ) is always on a top of this business , definitely deserve 5 stars .... However if he is not around ......
Horable and unprofessional staff
I waited for a butle of Corona 42 minutes at the beach and the blace is not so busy at this moment ....
I.will definitely recommend this place to everyone , but I will also definitely recommend reconsidering new staff in some cases
