You can order groceries from Simon ~ I think to go to Costa Maya you have to place an order for at least $200 US. We usually do our own grocery shopping, I think it's Ritches that we use, they have always delivered the groceries to the dock at the time we've asked them to.
As far as prices for meals @ Costa Maya it depends on what you order, but I can eat for less in town. We do generally eat a couple of meals @ Costa Maya. Seems to me that the buffets are about $20pp.
We also always get the Island Ferry unlimited rides card. It had been $50pp, may have went up w/price of gas.
Have a great time ~ we love Costa Maya and have 2 wks booked up there for Feb.

Staying at Costa Maya it will be tough to eat cheap. In town you can eat lunches and smaller stands for just 2 or 3 US dollars if you know where to eat (and don't like to stuff yourself to the max). Also in town, you can find dinners that run between 5 to 25 USD (or more) depending on where you eat.
If you stick to the stalls (when they are open), roadside stands and hole-in-the wall places, you will eat very cheaply. But you'll only find those in town.
