We visited Paradise Beach on Jan 4, 2013. Our party consisted of 11: four adults, two teens, and the rest elementary school kids. We got there about 10am and I would recommend going early, the earlier the better if you want chairs on the front row of the beach. There are a ton of chairs on the beach and by the big pool. We got a row of five chairs under palm trees on the beach, but one of us had to sit at the pool and watch the little ones when they were in the pool. The cost was $2 per person to use their "amenities" - the pool, restrooms, showers, chairs. We also bought the fun passes for the older kids for use of the water toys and kayaks. I would NOT recommend the water toys for little kids unless you plan on being in there with them. I was a nervous wreck when my 9 year old was out there as there are no life guards and the day we went there were 8 boats in port and the water toys had TONS of kids on them, with no-one regulating who could slide when or where they could jump off. I just felt that was an accident waiting to happen - I actually asked him not to play out there because I was so afraid someone would jump on him as he was swimming by. But, my 13 and 15 year-olds had a blast out there and are a bit wiser about watching all ways for people. Not to discourage anyone from going - we will definitely go back if/when we return to Cozumel - just use common sense! The fun pass is $12 per person. We had two fabulous waiters that brought us food and drink the whole time we were there. The cab ride was easy to get and took us directly to Paradise Beach, and there were plenty of cabs there when we wanted to leave. The cab driver tried to talk us in to going to Mr.Sanchez and had a sheet on it with him - said it was a "better deal" because it was all inclusive, but we stuck with the original plan to go to Paradise Beach and boy are we glad. We had two buckets of beer, sodas and water for the kids, pizza, 2 orders of nachos, chips and salsa, and one of our kids got a drink in a coconut!... and our tab was only $86. The food was great and the beer cold, delivered with limes too! Had we gone to Mr. Sanchez the all inclusive would have cost us $250 for our family of 7 ($50 for adults, $30 for kids). The restrooms and pool were sparkling clean (there is a lady in the bathroom mopping constantly so there are no slippery or dirty floors.) Highly, highly recommend it! Like I said, we'll be back!
