After managing to negotiate a reduced rate with an extremely helpful and friendly member of staff at reception, we were delighted to have checked in at this place. We stayed in a lovely room for four with balcony and sea view. The room was spacious, cleaned every day and had sky TV with some English channels. The pool here is... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms are a little dated and they need to change some mattresses. But the room quality was reflected in the cheaper price. Staff are very welcoming and answered any questions we had. Pool area is amazing and if diving there is a shop on sight and a pier to be picked up. Great location... More

We used this hotel for our first night stay of a ten day visit to Coz. The bulk of our time was at a condo in the southern end of the island but it was not available until the day AFTER our arrival. Being right across the street from the Mega was a big plus for us. We shopped for... More

This is a hotel for Divers. The Pros: Hotel Barracuda has their own pier for the dive boats. You can lounge on your balcony and just wait until it arrives without standing and waiting. Snorkeling right from the Hotel and quite a few fish and newly formed reefs from some of the concrete piers that detached from the shore (Hurricane... More

Do not stay here. I've never stayed at a worse hotel. Reasons: 1. Very dirty; hallway and room not swept, with cig butts, had to ask to be swept. 2. Could not provide bottled water even for purchase. 3. "Free wifi" means only in the lobby, which is small and always full of people. 4. Hotel bar wanted to charge... More

Interesting little pool and bar attached to the Hotel. Deep water 10 feet deep put in into the ocean. Nice place to spend a few hours on the water without being constantly sold something. Prices are tourist but low end. $30 pesos for A Sol.

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
