Pass on This One ------

Stopped by for a beer in late afternoon. Place was totally empty except for one couple. They say it's busy over the lunch hour so we wouldn't necessarily consider being empty a bad sign. Beer came in a cheap, flimsy, very small plastic cup --it was not even properly chilled. We questioned the... read more

Beautiful decor as ever. They had inside and outside seating with a ladder down to the ocean to swim. They also had a floating trampoline and other floating toys in the ocean. Unfortunately it was too cold to swim when we visited but it looked like a lot of fun! Expensive to eat..it was $75 usd for tacos x2 and... More

Obviously the margaritas were great. Good location, walking distance to cruise port. Food was great, prices okay. The constantly being asked if we wanted pictures got annoying. Our waitress Lola was great, attentive, very sweet, took our picture with our camera. Didn't appreciTe being dragged in by the pirate and pushed into taking a picture with him, while he expected...

We're tired, thirsty, and hungry after our fligh was canceled and the ensuing free for all to find rooms for the night. Got one near Margarittaville, and went there for dinner. Want crowded at all, so we got an outside table over looking the water and drank margaritas as the sun went down on Cozumel. Make sure you don't have... More

I thought the Calamari was great! Other food was good. The perfect Margarita was very delicious! I would definitley go back for more. It was a fun place to hang out near the water. Probably the most fun for the younger crowd I saw hanging out in the water on the water toys LOL!

A typical chain place (have also been to the one in Key West). Food was good but overpriced. great setting on the water on a nice afternoon but doubt we will be back....local places so much better.

We had fun there...but we were always there when the cruise ships weren't LOL. Not really a matter of planning just a matter of luck. We stopped in usually a little latter in the evening and it was never crowded and we got personal attention from my favorite bartender Manuel and the bar manager Mingo. It is a bit over... More

We stopped here for drinks while watching the parade during Carnaval! They have a fun atmosphere and a friendly staff! My recommendation would be the Perfect Margarita on the rocks!

There's nothing good to say here except the view. Food extremely overpriced, dismal service and terrible music from the 80's. Not one jimmy Buffett song! Music was so loud you could hardly talk. The volcano nachos were made with process cheese you find at the hotdog stand. For a cool 24.00 dollars you to can have a burger and cold... More
