The Sand Bar is hosted by a fantastic team of friendly servers an talented bartenders. They ha an extensive variety of standard drinks, but if there is something you don't see in their list, just ask! The food ranges from fun to healthy to simple...each option is delicious. The service is a testament to that wonderful Jamaican hospitality. The bartenders... More

My husband and I spent an afternoon at the vibrant doctors cave beach and had lunch at the sand bar. The chicken wraps were very well put together and had plenty of filling. I ordered a cocktail that was a mixture of 3 Dacqueries ! a little too sweet! Special mention to Sharon our amazing waitress who always serves with... More

Lot's of beautiful people lounging by the bar. Great music, fast bartenders and they have even have TV's showing American sports. You must definitely stop here and have a few cocktails and enjoy the sunset.

Stayed in a condo nearby and had lunch here several times. The Jerk platter is great and serves 3-4 people for lunch. Fantastic rice & peas and the drinks are really good. Resonable prices. Wish they were open for dinner. Service is good but very slow. A lunch could easily take 2 h. Ask for Tanya!

A variety of snacks, available at reasonable prices, hot or cold. Servers will take your order and deliver your food on the beach.

We have made friends here! Ask for J-Lo, she is always our server and she tends to our every need with a smile and sound advice. We go there and always say "where's J-Lo"? Food is good as well. Jerk platter is good and I always get the steamed red snapper which is always excellent! We love J-Lo!!!!

If you are staying at an all inclusive resort on the beach then there's absolutely no reason to visit Doctor's Cave Beach because you all it offers and more at your resort. But if you don't have beach access then this is a good place to hang out for a while and sip a cool beer.

When you walk into a bar you would like service, you shouldn't have to go looking for it!! Horrible Hospitality!!

I visited this place twice during my stay. I would recommend their Jamaican specialities. I was disappointed how dry the pork jerk was but the pork bun was amazing. The service can be a bit slow but they are very friendly. The view needless to say is beautiful. I did find that the service on the beach itself was less... More
