We stopped by for happy hour and island fries one afternoon and it was very memorable and affordable. The location on the beach is perfect.

We stayed at Pacific Resort so ate here often. Restaurant menu had good selection and food was delicious. Barefoot Bar dining more relaxed (which was great with young children) and food selection was good. Meals came out quickly and were reasonably priced.

Breakfast is usually at the Barefoot Bar/Restaurant right next to the lagoon. Sandals Restaurant is more refined and used as an alternative to the Barefoot Bar/Restaurant if there is an easterly breeze. Live music in the evenings at either location.

Impossible to find fault. Setting, staff and food of the highest standard all set in paradise. Direct flights from Christchurch an added bonus for a mid winter escape.
