My family and another family were staying at two of the Royal Resorts locations in Cancun as we had several times before. We decided to re-visit the Captain's Cove Restaurant. This is across the main street from the Royal Mayan/Caribbean/Islander group in the hotel zone.

Next door to Captain's Cove is Pancho and Willy's, one of the seemingly endless number of bars in Cancun. This one is a little more tame than most and served as a good waiting area before our reservation time at Captain's Cove.

At Captain's Cove the food was very good and moderately priced and if you are staying at a Royal Resorts property you get a 10% discount. The sunset view is extraordinary with most tables right on the lagoon or bay side of the land strip. Though mainly a seafood place my skirt steak dish (Arrachera (sp?)) was very good. Others had seafood and all were complimentary, especially of the shrimp dishes.Service was very attentive.

Afterward you can take the complimentary shuttle bus back to any of the Royal Resorts properties in Cancun.

Great place to grab a drink and watch sunset over lagoon. Can use your Royal Resorts key card there, shuttle goes once an hour on the hour...or just enjoy the walk up/down the Royal Resorts driveway.

Fabulous place!! Sat outdoors and watched the sun go down... and then the alligators came out in the lagoon. Very picturesque! Our food was wonderful and the wait staff was beyond our expectations. The price was equivalent to food quality. Would definitely go back!!

OK, it is good looking place. Outdoor lagoon view was nice. Nice staff.
But food was just too pricey for the quality. Everything tasted like it was cooked in advance and just scooped out to serve. My prime rib came with thick gravy that I am sure came from some can. I had better shrimp cocktail @ TGIF. Dessert was dry and stale.... face it, it's nothing but a tourist trap!

My wife Lorie & I had the best sea food we have ever eaten at the Captain's Cove in Cancun.
Her Salmon was prepared perfectly, my grilled grouper caught that day was the best I have ever had, we also tried the stuffed crab, stuffed with shrimp, scallops & mushrooms in a wine sauce that was very good.
We had a table over looking the bay at sunset the view was great.
We would highly recommend this establisment for great sea food, service & ambience for a memorable evening.
God Bless,
Mike & Lorie Thomas
