  • Oh my God I love this place. This was one of the highlights of my trip. The views where Majestic the music had you up and ready to party it was Lively and relaxing. I good place to order for the chicken and the potato salad was so tasty, yummy yummy. If you ever have the privilege of coming to Antigua this place is a sure-fire must. You will not be disappointed. But you really should wear comfortable shoes because it's a hill and your on rocks and everyone looks relaxed so no high heels for this ladies LOL
  • Such a good visit on a Sunday night! They have card machines for bar but bring cash too. Such an amazing view and the band at night is great fun! Watch out for the Rum Punch!!!
  • A must see if in Antigua. Beautiful view day or night. Thu and Sun nights there is live music and a great atmosphere. What a place to watch the sun set, drink rum and dance the night away!
  • Awesome view of the island. Fun place on Sunday evening if you like live music, booze and dancing.
  • 1 of the most picturesque views on the island, and the area is drenched in deep island history. The Sunset party on a Sunday gives visitors a real taste of island/Antiguan style partying! Will be memorable for all who visit and a favorite for visitors FOR SURE!
