Tried Captain’s Cove for brunch during our second week, after being disappointed with hacienda Sisal (our typical go to) the first Sunday. Atmosphere was great out on the lagoon porch. Food and service were fantastic. Highly recommend Clerony as your waiter.

When in Mexico ..... but I wish I hadn't. We went for the Mexican Show and Buffet but it wasn't great. It started at 6.30 and so was presumably intended to be family-friendly. However the warmup act consisted of the MC inviting any willing members...More

Yes it is directly across the street. I stayed at Royal Carribean next door to the islander. Also, I noticed the hotel shuttle had a drop off there.

Restaurant owned by Royal Resorts Group , which specializes is the fresh fish and seafood in addition to a wide variety of choices for all tastes. We have a privileged view of the Nichupte Lagoon and every afternoon we can watch the awesome sunset of the Mexican Caribbean with the crocodiles who visit us each evening.
