Food and Dining

The food was just OK. We did not do any of the specialty restaurants this time. Breakfast was good very day, minimal wait at omelette station. Dinner is just average, all the quality is in the specialty restaurants.

Room Steward was just fine. Saw him twice the entire week. Tipped him $20 on day 1, never followed through on our request. Boat had significant plumbing problems. 4 out 7 days we could not use our toilet.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

We booked Jaimes at the Blue Reef on our own. Water is not great they block all the ocean grass And it leaves a foul odor. Jaimes was great.

Harvest Caye, Belize

3 out of 5
The place is nice but not authentic. Felt like pool at Disney resort. Water was not clear and man made beach.

Miami, Florida
