Default Carlos and Charlies-Cozumel...Warning!!

Carlos and Charlies is a great place to eat drink and be merry....but.....if you plan to pay with a credit card...DON'T!!! Just come back from the Explorer of the Seas and when I and my fiance went to pay with our card they charged our card 4 times and we paid them in cash!!!. The bank gave us back the money and they are investigating this circumstance. The lesson we learned is to use CASH!!.

They first took the card and said that the card was declined. (They did this 3 more times)Then they said that it must be a communication problem with the bank. So I had to run back to the ship to get the cash because the ATM's that are in the area are all in PESO's. So after I came back I came back to C&C I gave them cash. I did not recognize that there was a problem until later when I check the balance in my account.

We use our cards as little as possible as well. Only used them at reputable places.

Wouldn't C&C be considered reputable? I mean they are a chain restaurant.

For anyone else in the same spot - the bank machine in the square gives out pesos or US dollars - you can choose

Please don't judge the restaurant from this incident. Although we do not go to Carlos and Charlies anymore, as we are older now and like to spend quiet time on the beach and shopping; several years ago we were in Carlos and Charlies and left a shopping bag there. The waiter came running after us (he had to go at least a block to find us) to return our bag to us, and was so happy to catch up to us. The majority of the Mexican people and places are great!
