Perfect Day at Coco Cay - Coco Beach Club

Recommended Posts

Just like Labadee, this port of call can be a free day of swimming and lunch with no extra price.  The Coco Beach Club looks amazing, but for those of you who paid the $199 each for the day with infinity pool, food, private beach etc.  Did you think it was worth it?  Any detailed opinions appreciated - and any pics appreciated, as well.  Thanks for your opinions.

Piggy back question, but is there any free food on Coco Cay, or no, and you have to eat on the ship or pay for food on the island?  Just wondering as we normally sail with NCL & there is the free BBQ (all be it basic) on the island.

Most restaurants on the island are free.  There is only one restaurant that is for a fee plus the beach club.

The main food pavilion in the center of the island is free and is the best out of any of the cruise lines private island BBQ's. There is the normal hot dogs and hamburgers but there is also a taco bar.

Then there are other choices around the island which are also free.

This is the best private island out of all of them. Also if you have the drink package it works on the island unlike some of the others.

The tacos are sooooooooo good.    They have both fresh flour and corn tortillas.    
the chicken was good too.   Oh heck it was all good. Lol.

For us the Beach Club was worth it....BUT I only paid $39.  There’s no way it would have been worth $199 for me.

I only remember seeing the standard ground beef, but I'll try to look tomorrow.  (today, really)  🙂

I'm sorry that I lost track of you on the Anthem, and so sorry to hear about Mom's hospitalization.

 

Fortunately, it will be easier to stay in touch on Baby Empress.  😄

No worries. You are a very busy and popular woman. And you know everyone. Hopefully we can connect on the baby of the fleet, maybe even grab a meal.

 

My mom is doing much better and I am hoping she stays that way. Thanks

Last month I did a b-2-b on the Allure and wound up on the island twice, first week our visit was rained out, (booo!).  The 2nd week it was to cold to go into the water, however, the food was good, try the chicken sandwich and the tacos.

How did you manage that steal?!  Was it a quick glitch in the system? lol

I am taking a wild guess you are from Allentown?  Not a long drive from me, I am in Flemington, NJ. 

Do you happen to be a fan of the group 'Straight No Chaser'?!  I am a BIG fan & my favorite singer, Jerome, was born & raised in Allentown.  lol  Been to several of their concerts!  Anyway, going off topic.  lol

We spent the day at the coco cay beach club last week.  We paid approx. $60 adult $40 kid.  It was a great day and our first time at the renovated coco cay island.  Walking back through the free areas I don't think we would do the beach club again.  There seems to be several places to enjoy the beach without the extra expense.  We also had the unlimited dining package so we were eating well all week.  The special lunch was good but not really a novelty.  It was convenient not having to carry towels off (they are provided at the beach club).

Steak carnitas (cubed, not really good for a taco) and pork carnitas (shredded) and chicken.

Use the flour tortilla and the corn are very thin and break apart.

Also, Cuban sammies, but bread can sit on warmer too long and be too crunchy or nearly blackened.

We’re at the club last week, and it cost us $65pp. Would not pay more than that, even though it was a really nice venue. Too many equally nice free areas on the island.

Thanks - you beat me to it. You described the meats exactly as I was going to!

 

No fish tacos anywhere on the island. Not even the “pay” restaurant - I asked. 😊

 

Then I asked if there were seagull tacos........... 😄😄😄

Yes I am. I have heard of the group but am not really sure I have heard them to be honest.

we did the Beach Club with an overwater floating cabana- AMAZING and worth every penny.  Between the cabana attendant who brought us as much food as we could eat, brought drinks all day, the mini fridge stocked, towels, shower and slide!  Filet and lobster- literally we could not eat all he brought.  Only drawback was that the bathrooms were a little far but they are building new ones closer in the next few months.

Was it less crowded and more relaxing?  That is what I have in mind.  I had some extra OBC and reserved it for $79pp.
