I've never tasted a loquat, but after Googling them and finding out that they taste like a mix of mango, citrus and peach I say keep the tree. That sounds like something that could be easily mixed with rum.
The flowers are supposed to smell amazing too.

hey Lori, they actually taste very bitter, maybe my tree is defunct, but they make a mess, and is currently blocking my view, may have to just trim it back a bit

From what I read if they are bitter they aren't ripe yet. They're supposed to be soft when they are edible. The seeds contain small amounts of cyanide so don't OD on them.
Maybe chopping it down would be the best thing. You could carve tikis out of the wood!

Great start to your backyard! Things are really shaping up.

I have to be honest with you, I like the small tree that is blocking the view. I can see you doing a winding path to get to the tiki room. It would add to the "exotic mystery". Just picture it, a path bordered with tropical flowers that opens up to an enchanted getaway from the world.

Took a trip to Oceanic Arts yesterday, it was full of stars! both owners were there, the artist Shag was there buying a killer wall piece and the gentleman who writes the tiki books were all there! also had to pick up some thatch and a few other odds and ends since AO is now like 100 miles away from me now. cleaned them out of 4x4 pieces of palm thatching!
now to put it up......
