The beach was nice, clean and scenic with idyllic bright blue water. I went on a red flag day and the current was a little strong, not really recommended for weak swimmers, so be sure to pay attention as to which flags are flying. This is a public beach, so don't expect any service; you'll need to bring provisions with... More

We had dinner reservations for 7pm and we're able to watch the beautiful sunset! I would definitely ask for a seat outside if possible. The food was great (I had salmon ). Was just a really nice date spot and getaway from out hotel.

excellent place to relax, very quiet and peaceful. I love the brightness from the beach and it's very clean and organized, well maintain public place. There are lots of open cottages, playground for the kids, expectacular water waves from the sea.

The playa delfines is recommended by the locals and we came here by bus as we stood in town. The beach is 'OK' only and it is more a photo spot for the CANCUN sign. If you don't stay here you do not have access to any hotel/restaurant/bar Everything is allinclusive from hotels and they wont let you in Disappointing

If your hotel does not have access to a beach i would recommend this one. Beautiful. A quick bus ride.

The beach looks good from afar, but is stony in many places. There are some basic showers and bathrooms nearby. Swimming is good. Not much seaweed. And it's one of the few easily accessable beaches in Cancun and therefore worth a visit. Especially since some Mayan ruins are just across the street.

Strong current on a red flag but free shadow spots which is nice. Definitely recommended with calmer sea

Arrived at the beach for the day, looked fantastic. Got pictures by the Cancun sign and walked down to the beach looking for some sun beds, there weren't any, just some uncomfortable wooden benches. Looked like no where to get a drink from so we left. Shame as was looking forward to going here for the day but went back... More

This beach is spectacular, it looks like it is a movie scene. Crystal clear water and white sand beaches.
