Came on a ship and headed over to the Boatyard. Got great chairs and an umbrella. Water is beautifully blue and the beach is pink sugar sand. Food and drinks are just OK, but having a home base with the inflatable islands, and the complementary snokel with turtles trip made the money well spent. Love this place!

I've been here before but this time was great. It's like an all-inclusive beach club. You pay a price that includes a chair and umbrella and then for us they gave us credit at the bar. So after paying for 3 chairs, we got our lunch free. The beach is beautiful and the activities, trampoline, iceberg, ropeswing on pier and... More

The iceberg, trampoline & pirate swing a "must do"; they'll tire you out but it's worth it for the laughs. With family & friends you can't go wrong with a bucket of Carib to refresh and cool off on the relaxing cabanas. Getting back most of the entry fee in credit at the bar tops it off!

If you are looking for a place to take the children this is a good option. You pay 25 US dollars per person but you automatically get a card with almost all the amount you paid as credit to use for food. We had lunch there and it was good. There are a lot of things included: use of all... More

I went there several times (I'm a cruise ship crew member) and I love the place, is the ideal place for young people. Loud music, laughs, tequila shots and lots of fun! I always recommend this place onboard to young group of friends. The prices are okay and the food delicious!

It was not the first time that I had visited The BoatYard, but on Tuesday April 18, I found a heightened level of energy among the staff. The bar was busy, but the welcome to The BoatYard and how are you doing today, was really welcome. The Real Madrid match gave additional life to the Bar area and the rivalry... More

We spent the better part of the day at this beach front and was so worth it! For $25US per person, you get beach chairs, table, umbrella, wifi, $20 back in food/drink vouchers, access to all the ocean play facilities (trampoline, iceberg climber, rope swing etc) and a boat that takes you out to swim with the turtles!!

We went to the Boatyard at the recommendation of our daughter who works on the Royal Caribbean cruise line. We had our 13 year old son with us. It was a perfect beach day for everyone. We had chairs in the beautiful white sand. Everyone played on the beach trampoline & climbing floats and jumped off the dock. The food... More

25 per person for Umbrella, two chairs, free drink, water activities, transfer back to Port, and great people watching. Good bar drinks and plenty of choices for lunch. They call your name when it is ready so you don't miss any chair time. Nice beach and swimmable water.
