This was a great stopver before getting back onto the cruise ship. They offer drinks specials. Everywhere there's always running punch in Jamaica; maybe next time I'll try margaritas from Margaritaville. Seems to be a franchise that is available along the Caribbean and the US....More

Didn't eat at the restaurant, but visited the bar! Great music and high energy! A large group line dancing and the bar=tenders were excellent. Located next to a local shopping area so other things to do if you need a break from dancing.
