Aside from a couple of replies saying they've been there, can anyone give me more specific information about Mr. Sanchez Beach Club as to how far it is from the dock, cost of taxie ride, a sandy beach , if it's further than Play Mia Beach Resort. What the admission may be, if lounge chairs, umbrellas and other ameneties are available. Last but not least how highly recommended it is taking our own tour/transportation.
Thanks to all that reply !
We visited Mr. Sanchez this year. It was approximately 15 min taxi ride from the port - standard rates are posted at the port. Not positive but believe around $14 to get there.
We arrived early (about 9:30a) and they were just setting up for the day. We enjoyed the free beach chairs and when the waiter came over and took our drink order, he saved us a table right by our chairs for when we decided to eat.
There was a pool at the facility, as well as clean restrooms.
We spent the day there (spending several hours), food (nacho's & quesdillia's), drinks (both alcohol and non-alcoholic tall beverages and tip cost the 4 of us about $90.
Taxi's were waiting to return passengers whenever they wanted.
Am not sure how far from the other resort but we would stop at Mr. Sanchez's again...
Have fun and safe sailing.
