Stopped here for late dinner and drinks 1 night. Nicely placed in Flamingo. I can't say anything stuck with me when we left. Nice pool good view of Flamingo Bay. Not a sunset view. Would recommend checking it out just don't expect a huge "Bar" scene. Good drinks specials

What a change!! The welcoming atmosphere of the past is gone. Still a great view but the service was lacking and the drinks are ridiculously priced:$7.50 for a 12oz smoothie with NO Actual fruit in it? Seriously? Didn't bother ordering food. In the past it was ordinary and slightly overpriced. It's been a couple of years since I was here and the familiar, friendly bartenders are gone. Replaced with slow, disinterested servers. They removed all the Tshirts that had decorated the thatched roof but left the monkeys. They filled in the largest pool and made it a sand soccer court! They also shut down the pretty and refreshing waterfall near the former large pool. Change can be good but not these changes.

I was reading much more hype about this, but when we got there, the food wasn't all that great and the staff was ok. There are much better options around to choose from.
