Found this hidden gem after getting caught in a rainstorm exploring Cozumel. We were waved in by someone standing on the side of the road and found this great beach club and restaurant. We practically had the whole place to ourselves but could see that...it probably gets busier in the evening. They offer live music, volleyball, corn hole and even an arm wrestling table and dance pole for any pole dancers out there! There are water sports rentals available: paddleboards and jet skis. The beach is absolutely amazing, the sun came out and we swam and enjoyed the crystal clear water. We were offered freshly caught lobster tails and grouper. We had a piece of tail and some tacos, all very good. We lounged a while by the beach and enjoyed a quiet paradise refuge before they started to get busy and we carried on. Service was fantastic!More

Whilst staying at the Iberostar Cozumel, end of the second week, we decided to take a walk along the beach to Alberto’s for an evening meal with new found friends; a change of ambiance and menu choice. The big guy with glasses (sorry forgotten name)...was great, very courteous, relaxed and friendly. He guided the five of us through the menu and showed us the Catch of the day. It looked great and we had trouble deciding, so he made a large sharing platter containing King Crab, Red Snapper and Lobster Tails, served with sides of Jacket potato, rice and veg (Picture below). Quite simply, it was ‘Dee- Lish’. Live music was being played in the background and the sunset view was spectacular. A great meal, great staff and great view. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. So much so we decided to revisit a couple of evenings later. This time we weren’t as impressed. Expecting the same options found the menu choice to be sparse. No red snapper, no lobster tails and for some reason the ambience had changed somewhat, to give us the feeling we were being hurried and the service this time lacking. This second visit we had a less ‘Interesting’ meal nowhere near up to the standards of the previous visit. Then the bill at the end, after adding the compulsory 15% service charge, was a lot higher than the previous visit. I did query it, but still didn’t think this particular meal and service justified the amount being charged. Shame really as the first visit had been great. Conclusion: Not likely to return to Cozumel, but if we did not sure I would revisit after the 2nd time as service, food quality and ambiance was too sporadic between the two visits.More

We stopped at this place for dinner after we left The Cabana Beach. It was most definitely the highlight of our stay on the island! We ordered the big seafood sampler that our waiter recommended. More than enough food for four people! The best lobster...tail and crab legs and shrimp I have ever had! Super friendly and accommodating staff, and a Picture perfect sunset! Try a dirty monkey! You will not be disappointed! Everyone at this place is amazing at what they do! We will most definitely be back, and recommend it to any friends we have traveling to the island. Now I know why it says, “best tail I ever had” on their sign! It was most definitely the best lobster tail I’ve ever had!More

We did the snorkelling tour with Albertos. Three stops. The first one was great since the water was perfectly clear and we came very close to a big turtle. After that we went to two other snorkelling spots. One was only starfish and the last...was not snorkelling but standing in knee deep water with some stingrays swimming around you. What I consider real snorkelling was only done in the first spot and since it lasted less than 20 minutes I feel the trip was not worth the money.More

Our group went fishing and wanted to bring our catch here to cook it up...but we failed to catch any fish! We went to Alberto's for the sunset and food, though, and we had a GREAT time. The servers were knowledgable and friendly and professional....They joked around with us, explained the different types of fish and ways they prepare it. The food was really good, and the prices were fine. The atmosphere was super fun. We took photos as the sun set, and then we sat down to eat. Our server was good to take a group photo of us at the table. Then right as we were finishing dinner, the music started up...we weren't really expecting that on a Monday evening! It was so fun! They had a few professional dancers who did some throw-back break dancing...really good. Then we all got up and did a bunch of line dancing. Then they got out the limbo...so fun! Lots of diners got into it, including us. We will absolutely return here when we go back to Cozumel.More

We only stopped there briefly for a snack and drink whilst exploring the island! Other places shut at 4pm which is annoying but Alberto's is open much longer. We had lovely nachos there and some great smoothies. We went snorkeling from the beach there and...saw plenty of sea life including a sting ray really close to the shore and multiple star fish! Totally worth going there if you want to combine nice food and a snorkel.More

We caught fish on our deep sea fishing trip then brought it here so they could cook it. It was so good! Best meal ever!! The table and entertainment was perfect. Drinks were delicious. Staff was friendly. My son played on the beach while we...had a mini date night. We visited here 10 years ago and loved coming back!! It will be our must visit spot while we are in Cozumel. God's vision for beauty is on display here-perfect area to feel like you are on a private island.More
