Third trip to Playa Mia in two years and I think it just keeps getting better! Everything from the booking to the ride back to the cruise terminal at the end of the excursion is a breeze. The resort is great! Two nice pools, included bars, buffet, water slides, beach, and the available massages make for a great time. You can choose your departure time to stay as long as possible, or make it back in time for some shopping or other activity in the port. I'm planning to book my forth trip to Playa Mia in the next week!

We found a table under a palm tree and a waiter took our drink order before we sat down. The free buffet wasn't spectacular, but the fish ceviche, pico de gallo and a cucumber dish they had were fantastic. Our glasses were never empty, there was plenty of places to sit or lounge, umbrellas were available if you wanted one and the water was right there.
Nice facilities, beautiful beach.

If you want a beach day, this is the way to go. No need to wait for the RCL bus...a personal taxi whisks you away and back. You get there early enough to have the pick of chairs. As far as the beach experience, nice. Staff really helps when you ask...they don't hound you for anything pretty much. Better than the RCL island from that standpoint.

A fabulous day at the beach made very special by the wonderful staff!

Extremely well worth the money; purchased all inclusive package to Playa Mia Deluxe. The tour company was extremely helpful with arranging transport to an from the cruise ship. We enjoyed ourselves immensely; wish we would have stayed longer

Beach was great. Kayaking and sailboating was fun. Drinks and buffet just what expected. No problems at all.
Reviewer: Ada Neikens
We enjoyed our day at Playa Mia. Everyone was very accommodating. The staff was attentive and the food and drinks were plenty. So much to do: the water slides, the pool and the ocean activities!
Reviewer: Dawn Whitmire
Views are gorgeous! Beach is clean, staff is prompt and courteous, food was ok (was hoping for more authentic), inflatables were FUN, sailboats were a surprise but awesome!

We have been to Playa Mia many times and have always enjoyed ourselves there. When Carnival stopped offering it as a shore excursion we tried a couple of their other options for a day at the beach in Cozumel and they just didn't stack up. So for this trip we decided to book Playa Mia separately and we're glad we did. Not only was it a better location than what the ship offered, it was great to be part of a small group rather than crammed in a bus and having to wait on that one last person to arrive. After a short walk from the boat we were in a taxi and on our way. We will definitely book more excursions this way. As to Playa Mia itself, the descriptions of what you get are accurate. They keep everything well maintained and there seems to be something new each time we go.

The resort was great. The food was not. It was a poorly executed Americanized buffet. I would have preferred traditional local food.
Reviewer: Afton Fletcher
This was my second time visiting Playa Mia through Shore Excursion Group. It was once again flawless. Everything went great from the check in, transfer, service and amenities at the resort, food, and drinks. I highly recommend this Excursion for Cozumel!
Transportation was seamless. Water was aqua blue. Sand was white. Service was super friendly. We paid extra for snorkling. They were great guys and we got some good underwater pics. Open bar and buffet were sweet. This is a good one.
This was a fun and relaxing day. The water was a little choppy. The inflatable kid zone was pretty cool and tiring. The pool felt good. The food and drinks along with the service was great.

The was my first excursion not booking through the cruise line. This excursion was outstanding!! Friendly prompt service. I would book this again without hesitation.

My mom and I took a 5 day western Caribbean carnival cruise. This excursion was perfect and all we did was eat, drink and chill. There were plenty of activities but relaxing was fine with us. The food was good, the drinks were nice and strong..especially when tipping. It was a little confusing to find the excursion office..a small walk to the mall outside of port but the vendors were really friendly. I would do it again. Made my 35th birthday celebration awesome!!
Reviewer: Afton Fletcher
I was hesitant to book an excursion outside of the cruise ship that we were on because I had always been told not to because there was no garuntee you'd make it back to the ship on time or whatever. We wanted to do Playa Mia and it wasn't available through the ship we were on, so I booked it through Shipmate. Everything went like clockwork with the check in, transfer, at the resort, and return transfer. We had a great time at Playa Mia, the food and drinks were great, water slide, pools, beach, activities, and staff were outstanding. I was very pleased with the service of the excursion overall and will definitely book excursions through Shipmate (Shore Excursion Group) in the future!

Very Awesone day at the beach!! We went jet skiing & scuba diving!! Great food and very fun for the kids too!! We would definitely do it again.
I LOVED this excursion. Everything went smoothly from point A to point B, no complaints. I am guessing that the day that we went, there were not a lot of people/tourists but that was fine with me, no lines. My 10 year daughter and me had fun. I experienced the fish pedicure, my daughter went on the water slides and the obstacle course in the water. I would definitely stay at this resort again. The staff was very accommodating and helpful.
The service was excellent.

This was our trips last excursion so we wanted a day to just relax and unwind. Finding the location from our ship was a little difficult but once we found it we were quickly placed into a cab and whisked away. Arriving to the resort we were met by someone who escorted us to the window were we were given bracelets which gave us access to the amenities and food and as much as we wanted to drink. We had lunch from the buffet and the food was ok. One of the salads tasted funny so I let the staff know and the immediately pulled it off the buffet. We initially sat on the beach but the water was full of seaweed so we moved to the pool. Napped briefly on the chairs and then headed back to the boat.
Great time!! No problems getting there. They take you right there and get you settled. Great atmosphere. Servers take great care if you. Loads of activities for my teens. Great time.
We truly enjoyed our day at Playa Mia! Great pool, water sports and strong drinks!! Highly recommend!!
BEAUTIFUL BEACH AND SERVICE WAS VERY ATTENTIVE
The staff were nice and accommodating. The office was further than we anticipated and my husband was having ambulation issues. The facilities were clean and colorful. Restrooms were clean. I was disappointed to have to pay for an umbrella (other than deposit) given the cost of excursion. Drinks were small (even the soda). Food smelled good but didn't eat there. Pools were nice. Water was littered with seaweed.
Reviewer: Bob and Kathy
The team was more than helpful in accommodating our requests! We enjoyed a relaxing day on the beach! Rum bunch and the buffet were fabulous! Thank you!
We both enjoyed this excursion a lot and felt it was a good value. Transportation was nice and not as crowded as ship tour. Nice relaxing atmosphere at Playa Mia, adequate seating on the beach, friendly staff, nice buffet and good drinks! Only negative at all were the printed directions could have been a little bit clearer and we had to ask for directions to get to proper meeting place which was a bit further than expected. Other than that I would highly recommend this trip to anyone!
Would do it again
Overall the excursion was really fun and nice. They had so many activities for the whole family. The only minor issue we had was finding the meeting place. They had switched meeting places from Playa Mia's souvenir store to near the Hard rock cafe, but didn't send the email to us in time informing us of the change before we got on the cruise. It took us more than 30 minutes to look for the place.The bus left but they immediately got us a taxi. Customer service was very prompt and nice.

Only thing is guacamole was an extra to the all you can eat buffet,,,saw jelly fish by their air platform otherwise it was a relaxing day at their beach
Everything was perfect. Food, transfers, helpers.
Great beaches, Huge covered pavilion, Exceptional kiddie/small children pool. There was something for everyone, even a very reasonably priced gift shop.
Staff was fantastic, beach was clean, food and drink were great. Ask for the spicy salsa!!
Exactly the same as offered on Cruise ship, but $20 less, and Travel was WAY BETTER. Private taxi going and coming--when you are ready, included in price. No waiting on crowded busses!
My husband rented jet ski's, my children got to go down the waterslide, and we all played in the pools. Not to mention the great food on the buffet and the even better service.

Had a blast...
The quality of the facility was superb
The beach was beautiful. There was 8 of us, and there was so much for everyone to do. The food was awesome. Everyone was so nice. Would go again. Would definitely recommend. There was a big difference in price, with the cruise ship and on line. I am actually cruising again October 23, 2016, and would definitely use this website again.
ONly commplaint was the beach was full of seaweed
I enjoy every minute
Me and my mom truly enjoyed Playa Mia beach .This was my second time,planning to go again. Food was nice and drinks good.
Omg it was so fun. There is so much to do!we had unlimited drinks! The bees we're everywhere but hey what could you expect. Also the food could have been better but I wouldn't make it a con. They took pictures of us and they were a nice price. The guides were nice I just wish it was a little more organized. My in laws took the package with the tour and they loved it as well. Will definitely go again and will order from shore excursions because the prices were great
This was an excellent excursion. The food and drinks were great, service was excellent and we had a nice relaxing and fun day.
We found this to be a wonderful excursion. It was well worth the money. Nice non motorized vessels included for your fun. Nice gift shops. Food and drinks were delicious and service was spot on! Would recommend!
Playa Mia offered something for everyone. Great activities, great food, friendly staff. Loved it so much, we plan to go back the next time we are in port. Beach volleyball, obstacle course in the water, relaxing nap (could get shaded or in the sun), some organized activities - really was a good variety and fun for all (4 adults, 3 teens in our group). Food was good, with a decent variety on the buffet. If you are really picky, may be a little tough, but for us, met all diet options (bring it all on to health conscious). Couldn't say enough about the staff, from the bartenders, serving area, store, everywhere we went.
Felt welcome as soon as we arrived! The drinks kept coming & the food was excellent. The watervslides were very fun & everything was very clean!!!
The food was okay. The drinks were good and plentiful. The waiter was great, very friendly, and always available.

It was great to get off the ship for a day in the sun, with shade trees! Plenty of people watching; there were families from over 40 countries on our giant ship and 2 more ships were in port. Loved the sand and the ocean and the food was the best!
WAITER CATERED TO US ALL DAY WITH ""PINA COLADAS"" AND FOOD WAS DELICIOUS. A REAL FUN DAY. ITS WAS MY BOYFRIENDS BIRTHDAY AND HE ENJOYED IT THOROUGHLY!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!
This is a great place for a relaxing day at the beach. Huge water park on the beach. Had a blast.
Reviewer: Sean C
My group went in mid-September. Perfect timing. We almost had the place to ourselves. There are several pools, a sand volleyball court, paddle boats, kayaks, floating obstacle course, slides, and a kid area. The open bar was great. Food was nothing special, but still good. Friendly staff. Just a ten minute ride from the cruise ship terminal.
This is a beautiful day at the beach. Great water park. I think they could start paying the local youth by the pound to remove most of the rocks in the water.
Reviewer: logan's run
There were not very many people there. The resort was very nice and clean. The workers tried their best to keep us entertained despite the fact that it rained all day.
This excursion is totally relaxing and fun.beautiful,clean beach.food is delicious!!!!
Reviewer: Experiencing different places
Was kind of a long swim out to the floating trampoline against the current...but my kids had a blast! Pools were refreshing! Service was great by staff. Great relaxing day! Will do it again for sure!!
Reviewer: kat yat
Relaxing at the beach with all the food and drinks you want. The service is great.
We were looking for a relaxing beach day and we definitely weren't disappointed. We did an all-inclusive food and drink package and we really enjoyed both. The buffet was delicious and drinks were plenty. The park organized games if you wanted to play and you could take advantage of add-ons like massages if you wanted. The kids park looked fun as well. Taxi ride to and from was not long. Overall we were able to relax and read our books with drink in hand, which is what we wanted!
Reviewer: Tanisha Had a Ball!
We had a great time, there are so many things to do and the kids had a blast. My family rented jet skis and that was awesome. I highly recommend this excursion. There was plenty of food although it was just okay. Personally, the alcoholic drinks were not the greatest, the alcohol are no where near top shelf. But overall experience is top notch and would definitely do it again.
Good if you want to relax and drink and eat all day
