Meal Service Provided by "Sandra's Kitchen"

"Sandra's Kitchen" will provide sumptuous homecooked meals in the privacy of your vacation rental home. Awaken to a piping hot breakfast served inside or outdoors on your seaside terrace. Return from a hard day of playing or diving to relax and enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner with your family or friends in the comfort of your Cozumel home. Spoil yourself! The cook does the shopping, prepares the meal, serves you, and then washes all the dishes. You just bring a hearty appetite and enjoy the fresh and delicious food prepared to your specifications. All ingredients in our dishes are fresh, fresh, fresh and meals are lovingly made from "scratch" (preparation time is 2 to 3 hours for most dinners). You are welcome to watch and learn how to make these dishes if you wish. When you go home, you can dazzle your friends with your new recipes! "Sandra's Kitchen" is flexible to meet your needs, your schedule and your menu preferences:

  • You choose when you want your meals. If you want to get going early in the morning, we'll be there when you tell us (we're used to doing early morning breakfasts for divers!). You decide whether you want to have dinner early or late. It's your vacation and we're here to fit into your schedule.
  • You tell us if you have special menu requirements due to allergies or preferences (seafood, vegetarian, etc.).
  • Choose kid-tested favorites and your kids will be happy, too! Some kids don't care for spicy or "different" foods, so we have other alternatives for them.
  • You can mix and match from the selections listed below; there is no additional charge to you with the exception of JUMBO shrimp ($20) or lobster ($25).


WEEKLY Food Service Cost:
$220 per person per week; $110 per child (age 2-9) per week; no charge for children under 2. That's an excellent value when you consider that the average cost of a 3-course dinner in Cozumel is $25 to $30. 
INCLUDED: 6 Days with 2 meals per day (breakfast and lunch OR dinner). Price includes the cost of the food, preparation and clean up. With weekly rentals, the food service generally starts with dinner on the day of arrival and finishes with breakfast on the day of departure. Sunday is the cook's day off.

NO probem, you can arrange for cook service for as few as 3 days (and, they do NOT have to be consecutive days). Daily rate is $50 per person per day for two meals. We'll work with you so you can have whatever your heart (and tummy) desires.
