If you are in Cozumel just for SCUBA diving and can do without luxuries this place will work for you. There is a room for improvement as the place is getting old. We had two rooms and in one of them AC had only two settings on or off. I recommend checking out your room before you select one. Hotel... More

Have stayed here many times over the last 10 years. The view alone is worth the price. After that there are pluses and minuses. My major minus is the loud club music that goes on from about 11-6 everyday at the pool out back. But I'm diving all day and I have my own music that I can turn up... More

The room was okay, however they had terrible music playing from early morning until evening. some of it was rap music with swearing even though there was a some children around. Everyone over 40 complained about it to no avail! They cater to the employees of the cruise ships who come and have a few drinks. Very poor marketing, food... More

Wish I had read reviews before booking my stay. The beds are uncomfortably hard, the music starts early in the morning and is obnoxsiously loud all day. Repeated requests to turn it down, even when the beach was empty of customers, were ignored. Half the beach lounge chairs are broken and unusable. We bought our own drink supplies but were... More

when staying at this hotel you have to realize that it caters to people that like to scuba dive. It is not a resort. It has the basics. We stayed there from February 5th through February 12. We found it to be exactly as described .The rooms look just like the pictures. There is a refrigerator in the room which... More

The hotel is in a very poor condition, no beach, lousy service only positive was that it was in the centre of town.. We left after 2 days, of 5 since it was so bad. We didn't like cozumel much either if that means anything :(

I stayed here for one night and could not have been happier! The staff was helpful and there is a dive shop on site. I scheduled a two tank dive for the following morning. The food at the poolside bar was delicious and the staff was extremely nice. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. The location is... More

Close to downtown San Miguel and Ocean front. One of the older properties on the island and well priced for divers. The rooms are basic but clean and all have mini fridges. No telephones in the rooms, TV's and one queen or 2 double beds. Beds are not the most comfortable but I noted that they were using mattress toppers... More

I have never stayed at this hotel, but have been to the bar, pool and beach club out back a number of times. The hotel shares the area with the No Name Bar. Pool, beach and hotel are SUPER CLEAN. Not crowded. Food is VERY GOOD and reasonably priced. If you are coming to the island on a cruise and... More

Friendly staff, decent rooms with mini fridge. No internet in room. Two bars around nice patio/pool area. Beach was rocky, great for scuba and snorkeling bad for swimming. Jeanie's Restaurant next door offers 10% discount for guests of Barracuda. Mega store right across the street. I would stay there again.
