“enjoy the pool, not the drinks”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The pool is fantastic. If you can bring your own drinks, do so. We got a small pina colada and a small draft beer, and it was 18 dollars, 20 with tip. Full bottle beers were 5 bucks at the little spots around the pool. Get your drinks there!!

“Fun place. Loud and crowded”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

After being on our family trip for a few days aboard a very large ship, everyone was delighted to try a firm footing. This place is loud and, since it was spring break, very crowded. Very large drinks. A little steeply priced for my tastes. Also, the drinks are all in crushed ice, in Mexico. Coke in a bottle never looked so good. Go in a group to be able to help the drunkards back to the ship. Have a good time and as the commercial says, "Stay thirsty my friend".

“Awsume pool side bar”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

Ok so I did not eat or drink here but we did hang out at the huge pool. It was really clean nice and refreshing on a hot day. There was a bar and bar stools u can swim up to and sit down and drink while still being in the pool. We did take a couple picture and the guy was really nice and it only took a couple mins.

“Senor Frogs Costa Maya: Looks Can be Deceiving”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Cruising is a great way to see the world. But one of the few bad things about cruising is the prices, particularly for alcoholic beverages. They can really add to the cost of a cruise and this is why it is so common to see cruise vacationers exiting the ships in droves at each port, seeking out inexpensive libations before resuming the trip.

The desire for a drink is what led me to visit Senor Frogs in Costa Maya, Mexico. Approaching the establishment, it seemed like a cool place. The theme, the swim up bar, and the music all make it look inviting. We walked in, sat down, and took a look at the menu. Our jaws dropped when we saw the prices for beer and mixed drinks. The costs were almost as bad as those on the cruise ship, and the selections were not very good. The food was pricey as well, and we started to doubt whether stopping here was a wise decision.

Since we were already there, we went ahead and ordered some drinks and a snack anyway. We were happy to discover that Senor Frogs accepts credit cards because that meant we could conserve cash. But we did not like some of the things that happened as we sat at the table. At one point, a pair of women with bottles of mixed drink put hats on my wife and I, then proceeded to pour shots down our throats. It all seemed fun and festive, until we were told at the end that we had to pay $7 each! What kind of service is this? We were not warned there would be any charges. They just placed the hats on our heads and started pouring booze. We were not happy. What they served was in no way worth the money.

Senor Frogs Costa Maya does offer some respite from a hot day and there are some decent drinks to be found here. The swim up bar looks inviting as well. But the prices, aggressive selling, and other factors lead me to lower my rating to 2 stars and give this establishment a non- recommendation. An excursion away from the cruise ship is supposed to be relaxing and economical, but Senor Frogs is neither. Avoid it and look elsewhere.

“SENOR FROGS COSTA MAYA”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Had high expectations based on TripAdvisor...horribly disappointing. Food was not prepared here, but at neighboring "nice" restaurant. Food was below expectations, poorly prepared, poorly presented. Service was non-existent and nonchalant attitude from waiter. I ordered loster tacos....it didn't taste like lobster nor look like lobster. DO NOT GO HERE!!!
