Unobtrusive when you drive by. But take a seat on the upper deck at sunset looking over the Marina and get ready to be transported to another world paradise with the Jamaican twist to the cuisine. Really glad we didn't pass up when we drove...More

The hotel recommended this restaurant. We sat upstairs and had a view of the harbor. I had the shrimp cocktail which was excellent. He had fish and chips which was a large portion. A great place to eat!

Great place to down some beers and munch on very good food. Mexican food with a bit of a flair. Love the area by the marina.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at The Drunken Sailor a few times during the week we were there. The ceviche, tacos and drinks were delicious! The setting upstairs gives a great view of the marina. Staff were excellent too.

Response from Clare A | Reviewed this property |
It isn't open for breakfast it opens around mid day.. I don't know if it's on East or west side but it is on the dirt road leading up to the big El Ganzo hotel ( that is currently shut whilst they put right the Ofile damage)
