Mr. Sancho's or Nachi Cocum?

OK here is my group-2 grandparents, my husband and I and our 3 daughters-almost 18, 14, and 8. We like a few tropical drinks here or there but not major drinkers. Girls don't love to sit all day in a lounge chair. The next day we are going to Stingray City with an outside tour that includes snorkeling so snorkeling at Cozumel is not a big thing for us. We originally booked the Fury but decided it was too many boat things. So now it looks like we have narrowed it down to Mr. Sancho's or Nachi Cocum. Which do you think would be better for my group?

We were at Nachi Cocom two weeks ago. It was really nice, but aside from the pool and the ocean, there is no entertainment. I think there was one raft/trampline thing in the ocean, but that's it. It was great for me and my kids, they played in the sand and in the water. Mr. Sanchos is just down the beach from Nachi Cocom, and while we were there, some people who were at Mr. Sanchos walked down and defected to Nachi Cocom due to the crowds/noise at Mr. Sanchos. So it sounds like there might be more entertainment at Mr. Sanchos.

We loved Nachi Cocum! My family of 5 - with kids 11, 10 and 6 absolutely loved it there! They had the run of the beach. It was so nice and quiet and we didn't have to listen to anything other than the sound of the ocean. The kids went from the pool swim up bar (best kiddie daiquiri’s) to the ocean back to the pool. We loved it there and plan on going back on our next stop in Cozumel.

I heard Paradise Beach is also fun for kids. I'm leaning towards Nachi Cocom too. It'll be just DS and I but we like peaceful.

I heard good things about Paradise Beach also but when I look at the pictures it looks crowded and the beach looks so much prettier at Nachi Cocum. Concerned we will get bad weather and waste all that money! How is weather in Mexico at the end of March typically?

Our group (10 total) will be headed to Nachi Cocom during our cruise in April. I did a lot of reading up on where to go on here and other sites and sounds like it will be a wonderful day at the beach. It won't be crowded at all because they only allow 100 guests per day there so I would encourage you to reserve a spot in advance. We can't wait for that beach day second only to Castaway Cay...

I went ahead and booked Nachi Cocum. My husband looked at pictures and said he wanted a quiet beach day and Mr. Sancho's didn't look as quiet. Can't wait!

I'm debating also, have 4 adults and 2 kids ages almost 2 and. 6.

I like the reviews of nachi cocum best, and the fact that it won't be too crowded. Just worried we will be bored; we are from Florida so we are looking for more than just a beach.

Mr Sanchos is on the list, as well as playa Mia. So unsure!!!!

Not just encourage, pre booking Nachi is a MUST! The taxi's won't take you there unless you have a document showing you have a reservation. At least thats the way it was for us in 2010.
