Nice day at the beach . Service was excellent they were there with fresh drinks all day. The water slides were cool and the water obstacle course was challenging. also so many non motorized toys available. The Buffet was pretty good. This was our third time here and would definitely go again.

beach and resort were beautiful, pool and slides for kids at pool were great. service and food were wonderful. however the slides on the inflatable island was a nightmare. had to swim 100 yards and tow a 7 year old to get there, trying to get onto the "island" would have been impossible had my husband not regularly worked out and had the ability to press his weight. not only did he help our 7 yo, but helped a frustrated dad and his kid that couldn't get on the island. getting to the top of the slides was even more of a challenge. Also, the taxis to/from Playa Mia were less than modern. On the way back we thought we'd have to open the floor boards and help run like barney and fred (flinstones). and it had every engine light possible on and NO AC and was passed by every vehicle because we were going so slow. We'd stay on the ship next time or ????

This place was set up super nice. Lots of activities and beautiful water. Only disappointed in the buffet that we paid for. We were expecting authentic local food and instead received chicken nuggets and American food. Otyer then that definitely worth the price to get to and from and thevdays stay.

May 04, 2019
We started not to do the excursión with an outside group but glad we did. Everything went smooth from the time we met off the ship, transfers to resort and back. The resort is beautiful and the all inclusive is the way to go.... If you are looking to be away from Kids this might not be the best one.
Awesome for kids and families!
April 26, 2019
Our 4 year old had a blast! He’s an adventurous guy. He loved the water slides and splash area, as well as, kayaking and the jungle gym in the ocean. Food was decent for Mexican buffet and frozen drinks were good. Beer was a little flat. The only downside was that our son wanted to ride the big bikes in the ocean, but we were told he was not old enough. Something to look forward to next time!

We had a great day at Playa Mia. There were 5-6 ships in Port that day and it was good to know that we had arrangements made already for a day on the beach. We met our guides an hour before our appointed time (just to be safe) and they put us right in a cab and sent us on. (We got an extra hour of beach time!). We would book this excursion again!

We enjoyed the jet ski experience for an additional price. They also had massages and hair braiding on the beach. The food was not as good as our last visit, but it was decent. The restrooms are well kept. The drinks are strong and even stronger upon request. I would definitely recommend this excursion

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.

Best way to go to Playa Mia
April 19, 2017
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.

Convenient Trip to the Beach
January 22, 2017
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.

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!

Just a day to relax
April 29, 2016
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.

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.

Something for everone

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.
