We wanted to snorkel and our beachfront condo didn't offer any worth the wade in. This place was clean, had great beach service, nice beach, friendly iguanas and food snorkeling . It was a fun afternoon. We had snacks and drinks while here. Great place for kids to snorkel.

Staff was very unpleasant with the exception of the lunch staff in the VIP lunch. Very unfriendly.....we paid for "all inclusive" which should mean that as long as you are not belligerent, stumbling, or fighting, that you are working in the boundaries of your contract.....unfortunately..not the case..love the island..avoid the place.

We took a day trip from Cancun on a ferry, rented a golf cart, which was a lot fun. Came across Garrafon, the zip line was a lot fun and the snorkeling was good too! Fresh water pool has the amazing views!

Have been to Garrafon for 5 years now always dreaming about spending the whole day here enjoying the small beach and local crew. Used to be clean, well managed and well kept. Now - bathrooms don't flush (GROSS) and plastic bottles and rubbish are all over the beach and rubbish and cigarettes all along by the back rock where the... More

A very inexpensive place to snorkel, lay on the beach, drink and eat. We spent a whole day while on our vacation and will definitely visit next time we're on the island

So happy we visited, made for a great beach afternoon! Entrance fee was only 60 pesos for adults, and our 5 year old got in free. Beach was not crowded, snagged a couple of loungers under an umbrella with a table too. Service was prompt, food was good, cold beers! The beach was great, so many fish and shells to... More

This place was perfect. The entrance fee was cheap. The chairs were comfortable. The ceviche was so good and so were the drinks. We spent a whole afternoon here snorkeling. They sell fish food here so many fish are not shy to approach humans with or without food. There are local iguanas that hangs out by the big shaded area.... More
