Put in Bar

We did not have reservations so we were put in the Bar. At first we were the only two in the Bar until another couple was sat. View was great of the Lagoon.

We thought since staying at the Royal Caribbean we would try this restaurant with the shuttle bus since it's connected with our resort. We sat on the patio right next to the lagoon. It was very cool that an crocodile was there waiting for what ever scraps people throw at him. It's a nice looking restaurant. I had the Frutti... More

We thought we would end up eating here on a couple of occasions as it was right opposite the hotel, but when we looked at the menu there wasn't much selection, and one evening we did go in for a drink and it was completely dead.

This is a beautiful restaurant overlooking the lagoon. We ate there twice - once for lunch and once for dinner. The food both times was exceptional. On our night visit, we were surprised to witness the approaching crock named Willie, who spent the evening beneath our deck where our table was. Law forbids people feeding the crocks, but he never...

First of all, this is my husband's favored restaurant in Cancun. Food, location and service, all are excellent! My disappointment is how Management handled a charge dispute. After I noticed that they charged me twice our bill total of $82.44 , I thought this is probably a simple error, so I send message trough FB messenger. So, they asked my... More

The wait was initially a bit longer than anticipated, but after finally being seated and fighting off the glare for a bit, the sunset was great. The linguine w/ shrimp was delicious. The staff was helpful. Great time.

We stayed at Royal Sands with an all-inclusive package and Captain's Cove is nothing short of amazing! Some reviewers said they were not treated well for their all-inclusive status but our group of 7 did not feel this at all. You need to make a reservation to dine in here. Everything here was great- the view, the drinks, etc. Clam... More
