4th stay at the Barracuda. Low cost diver's hotel on the water. Dive shop in house. Boats pick you up conveniently from the hotel's private pier. Clean pool. Nice bar with friendly associates. Conveniently located near restaurants, watering holes and shopping.

I have been to Cozumel in 2011 and stayed at the Barracuda then I returned 4/18/15 the location was excellent. The purpose of my trip was to dive, so no this was not a romantic getaway nor was there a spa day planned. The hotel has a great location . The price is very reasonable so that I ate well,... More

Been staying here since 1999. This is a basic hotel right on the water and caters to divers. I am always pleased with the accommodations. If you are looking for fills nd Pom service this is not then lace for you....but, if you are looking for a clean, great location on the water place......this is perfect.

Location,location. Staff are very helpful. Balconies have beautiful views of boats and you can't beat the sunset. Great snorkeling right from the hotel dock. Hotel was pricey for what you get. With a few small amenities this place would be great! Very inconvenient to access the hotel safe and it costs 1.00 everytime. Rooms need coffee pots, room safes and... More

this really is a dive hotel, in more ways than one. But if you are looking for somewhere cheap, with a great dive company on location then this is it. Not much for creature comforts, but it is decent. clean the rooms daily, but don't get the floor wet in the lobby, makes them mad. Had to get a box... More

I guess "stars" are in the eye of the beholder. I liked this hotel, although it is a very basic, no frills kinda place. If you dive it is even better (I don't). All the rooms have n ocean view and all are near or over the "No Name Bar" which can be noisy. It is within walking distance to... More

We just finished a week's stay at this Hotel. The location is really fantastic - but - it is lacking in some basic amenities like - bath mats, wash clothes, a room safe. I will caution you - staying here during Carnival is extremely loud. Do not plan on any sleep. from 7 PM to 3:30 AM every night of... More

We happened to be in Cozumel meeting friends and wanted to dive. This hotel is right on the main drag, just south of the ferry pier. It is right across from the big grocery store, MEGA. It is a great place for divers because there is a Dive Paradise office right off the hotel lobby. We checked in, made our... More

Solo female traveler on a budget-- This was a great option for me, as I didn't plan to spend time at the hotel. I walked from the ferry to the hotel with my suitcase, no problem. Well-lit sidewalks with lots of restaurants nearby. I felt very safe sitting in the lobby at midnight (using the wifi). Its not a resort,... More

Very basic but a bargain...you get what you pay for it appears! I booked it at the very last minute so I have only myself to blame. Simple layout with OK A/C, the notice behind the door to the effect that valuables should be left with the front desk (and that the management can't trust their guests to be honest... More
