Twister ride getting there and back was awesome! The boat engine broke on the way back, and we had to change boats, but otherwise it was great. Beach was nice, food good, music fun. Water on the beach was cloudy, and I didn't get in far because it was either rocky or lots of seaweed.
It was a wonderful stop. We enjoyed all of the different amenities. The pool and the kids splash areas were clean and well kept. The beach was nice. There was plenty of lounge chairs. Drinks were an open bar as well as lunch being provided. My granddaughter was so excited for chicken nuggets. This stop was well worth the price.
Good fun and decent value. $21 dollars each way in taxi and $17 each for entry to club which gave us sun beds, snorkelling equipment, access to the water obstacle course, swimming pool and waiter service. All good fun and there are extra activities such as jet skiing and parasailing but these cost extra. There are a number of beach vendors selling their wares but if you say "no" you will be left alone.
Our 4 night cruise only had one stop in Cozumel. We opted to take a Taxi to Paradise Beach. http://www.paradise-beach-cozumel.com The Taxis are all lined up and the cost was $15 each way. Once at Paradise Beach we paid $3 a person which got us a chair either by the beach or by their wonderful pool. We had to each purchase at least $10 a person in food or drink. We had the best steak tacos there. Holy delicious!!!! Drinks were great. We had a wonderful time. They also have free wifi!
There are many good shops and restaurants at the Cozumel port also.
Nice and clean beach. Prices for food and drink were reasonable. We paid for the optional activities but didn't feel we got the value for them. Overall and nice experience at a good price that I would do again.
Headed over to Paradise Beach. With only one other ship in port the place was empty. The weather was perfect and the fun was great. This is the perfect spot for children. Ours, 12/11/7 had a blast. Plenty of water toys and sand to play on and good food to boot. We were there all day and no one was a bit bored. they are still talking about it and can't wait to go back.
Enjoyed the beach and pool area. Staff was attentive and lunch was delicious. Very resort type feel. Didn't feel crowded. Very clean and well maintained. We arrived about 8:30am and were the first group of so to arrive. About 15 from the port areas - taxi to/from was very, very easy. Lots of availability so no trouble at all!
