“A little too late”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Had to go for membership seminar. Got the best deal at the end of the session but we ran out of time (had to meet up with friends) to end the deal. They only do deals in person, by the time we rescheduled, it was time to head home.

“Palancar Beach Club”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

The main thing I want to tell people visiting this beach is to bring water shoes! The sand is very rough with broken coral and shells. As we walked into the water, we'd go "ouch, ouch, ouch!" Also, it is just a bit deep for very young children. My granddaughter is 6 and could not go very far before losing the bottom. She's just learning to snorkel, so that was a setback. Food was good though and reasonably priced. Shower and changing "room" were rather primitive. Could not see after closing the door to changing room and the shower was just a dribble. We had just visited an excellent beach club in Costa Maya (Disney Cruise), so were a bit spoiled by that.

“Beautiful Escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

A nice escape from the touristy beaches. Cab fare was $20 each way for two people. About a 15 minute ride. Greeted on site by photographer to take pic with sombreros. Then greeted by waitstaff who were very attentive the whole time. We received our drinks with extra alcohol at no charge. I would definitely say the customer service was impeccable :) They pretty much waited on us hand and foot. Water sports, restrooms, gift shops, and shower all onsite. The scenery was amazing! I would recommend bringing water shoes as the ocean floor in Cozumel is very very rocky.

“Nice beach away from the big crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is a nice beach with a good bar and snacks to help make your day near the ocean fun and enjoyable! The dive/ snorkel shop can arrange diving and snorkeling tours by boat. Chill out on the loungers with a cool Margarita and some ceviche and enjoy the beautiful turquoise water!

“Nice 'off the grid' beach club”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Nice 'off the grid' beach club, very relaxed, excellent place to relax and get into 'the zone'. When diving many of the various dive ops use the pier just south and it is an great place to tune into the island.
