My husband and I went to Cancun for our senior trip, and we had a blast, but we went back to Cancun almost 9 years later, and this place was definitely more directed to the younger crowd. It was loud, crazy, and a little too much for us considering we were exhausted from fishing all day. This Carlos n Charlie's... More

Visited with friends on our first night in Cancun. While the food was fine the atmosphere and style will not be for everyone. There is a lot pressure to participate with the antics of the waiters and even more to tip for all the little performances, such as balloon hats and guacamole being prepared in front of you. Shots are... More

We popped into here for a cold drink on a hot day and ended up having a bite to eat, more than a few drinks and floated out. We visited during the European Cup final and the place was packed with people watching the game. Staff were very friendly and every so often burst into songs and a group dance.... More

OK meal right in the party zone. Theme restaurant where they try a little too hard to convince you your having a great time. Very nice staff. My daughter said that all of the waiters and waitresses were "hot">

I have visited Carlos and Charlies 2 x now and both times we have had a blast. Great waiters/waitresses who really know how to get you "in the action". This is a fun, family experience (not for the tots though).

The meals were good but not our favorite place. Too loud and overpriced. If you are looking for loud night club atmosphere this is your place. Much better choices in the area for the money. Probably fun for kids in the early hours with the balloons and clowns but my teenager was not impressed. The food was good and well... More

On arrival we presented a coupon for free nachos when you order a main. Didn't realise how big there portion sizes are compared to the UK. So we over ordered. There was no air con inside which made it even harder to eat spicy food. Waiter kept disappearing to do a routine dance (annoying). The music/entertainment was too loud, so... More

We took our family to Carlos'n Charlies. The food is good, but the atmosphere is what makes it fun. My daughter was chosen to help make the fresh guacamole and there were some pranks involved which made it fun to watch. Be careful if you order the large drinks…they are the biggest that I have seen! The music is loud... More

This bar was the first on our bar crawl and it was the funniest we would definitely go back, clowns going round making balloon hats, awesome music, waiters were so helpful and dancing on the tables, one of them did fire bottle juggling, such a great atmosphere I would highly recommend.

We stopped in for lunch, and I would not recommend it. Now, I will admit, I have been here before, during spring break, and just to drink. For that, I think it's a fun place. This time I went back on a family trip, and thought I'd stop in for lunch. First, the waiters are extremely pushy and rude. Again,... More
