Nachi Cocum--Cozumel

Has anyone gone here?
I would love to see some pictures.
Is it kid friendly?
How far from where we dock is it?
Any input is greatly appreciated!

We were there last year....very kid friendly. While I enjoyed it I liked other beach clubs like Mr. Sanchos and Playa Mia better.

Here are our pics from Nachi....sorry....I though I had more. What I preferred about the other beach clubs was there was more "free" activities at the Playa Mia like water trampoline and the "iceberg"...you can see it down the beach in the first photo.

Thanks for your quick response!

We went to Nachi Cocum on our Nov 12 cruise. Was our 4th visit to NC and will probably be our last. Place was packed on our visit and we didn't get beach chairs closest bo water. Service also a little down, but food and drinks were excellent.

Unhappy

We visited in March '11 off of the Magic myself, my DH and 3 adult children. Reviews had been great, we were very, very disappointed. Long cab ride, we arrived outside of a very run down property. I could go on and on but surfice it to say that nothing was as advertised and we really wished that we had not even left the Magic for the day. We will not return.

We went twice at NC and we loved it very much both time
Like the fact that no more than 100 person per day can come in.

We have been to the other places with water toys, didn't feel so relaxing to us and we have 3 kids!

Been there twice and loved it!! The first time we went with my DSis and her 3 kiddos, although there were no water toys the kids had a blast just playing in the water and sand! Also been to Mr. Sanchos more recently and had a GREAT time there as well!! Have a great time whatever you choose!

We visited in November with our three young children. It was a good day, but I am not 100% sure that we would return.

The one thing that stands out in our minds is the sand. It is very grainy/shelly and not the greatest for sitting or playing in. Compared to the powdery sand at Castaway Cay, it doesn't stand a chance!

The water was beautiful and warm. The service and food was okay, but pretty slow. Our kids loved the pool.

The cab rides to and from were very fast and pretty scary! Good luck with your decision.

Don't discount Paradise Beach as another option. They also have water toys - $12 for the day to use them. We stayed there last year and really enjoyed it.

My DH and I have been to NC twice, once on our own and once with DS (2). We enjoyed it both times very much! Yes, it is true, it is not the most gorgeous property when you drive up, but the beach is nice, the food is great and the drinks are plentiful! We really liked the fact that there are only 100 people let in per day. Both times we went there were nowhere near 100 people there so it was a really nice, quiet, low key experience.
My hubby and I also went to Playa Mia, but we really did not like the experience at all. The food isnt as good (but not horrible), drink selection is limited, it is VERY crowded and the beach is super rocky. The one pro is that it has the water features like the trampoline, but it was too busy to even get near them! Hope this is helpful

Thanks everyone for your input! I showed DH the options and he picked NC. We'll give it a shot as long as there are spots left! There are 7 ships scheduled to be in port that day...

Since this is a thread with lots of people who have been to Nachi Cocom, can I ask about the food they serve? We will be there next Wednesday, and it just occurred to me that in Mexico, they may only serve Mexican food! I will love this, I'm sure, but my DH is picky and the only "Mexican" food he will eat is a churro! His favorite foods are burgers, pizza, and hot dogs. I swear, he'd be just as happy eating off a kid's menu if they came in larger portions.

My other question is tipping. In addition to the "day pass", we also booked a couple's massage and 30 min jetski rides. Who do we tip, when, and how much is customary? (We don't vacation much, never been to Mexico, and I don't want to be "that tourist"!)

TIA!

*All items are subject to availability on any given day, and we require the right to make substitutions.

*Because the value of the Nachi Cocom Beach Break is not placed on the alcohol, the price remains the same for drinkers and non-drinkers. We have a variety of non-alcoholic tropical treats as well. The true value of Nachi Cocom is placed on the location and the fact that we limit admission to create a more private and exclusive beach break experience for our valued clients. Your reservation with us will guarantee you seating, great drinks, alcoholic or non, great food and service, and all at a very special beach club that values quality over quantity

There will be plenty for him to eat. As for the tips, we usually tip the server $20 or so. Havent had any other services, but I think the standard is 15%, right?
