The Barracuda is a great diver's hotel. I've been staying there for 16 years. Nice rooms with a fridge. The staff are very friendly, attentive and helpful. There is a nice little beach area with a small pool and the world famous No Name Bar where the food is great and the waitresses make you feel at home. Located only... More

We had stayed in this hotel on previous dive trips in the 90's and were very pleased to see the hotel still in good condition. The staff was helpful and pointed us to some nice restaurants. There is a pool (and a pool bar) were you will meet fellow divers and other interesting people from all points of the compass.... More

I have stayed at the Barracuda numerous times over the past 15 years. It is and remains a great dive hotel. It is close to downtown about a 5 to 20 minute walk to most of the restaurants. It is near two shopping centers so purchasing food is no problem. The rooms are clean, and the staff is efficient. There... More

I love the hotel and the facilities. Defiantly I will come back some time and stay there! You can bring your whole family with kids and divers, there is a dive center on the hotel "dive paradise" and they have an excellent bar!

I stayed at Hotel Barracuda with several friends a few years ago and I'll not ever stay there again! A friend of mine arranged a small group of friends to have a wonderful dive trip to Cozumel. Everything was going great on our trip till just a few days left on our trip. Three days left at our stay at... More

Overall, the Barracuda delivers what it is known for: great location, great for divers. The 'Cuda is the only downtown hotel on the water with the Mexican Wal-Mart (Mega store) right across the street. If you are OK with no frills and acceptable basics at a decent price, you will like this hotel. No Wi-Fi except at the hotel bar... More

I was preparing to depart from the Barricuda after a week stay and diving. The day before I left I asked the male attendant behind the counter when the woman who has been cleaning my room was available as I wanted to leave a tip for her efforts. He insisted I give the money to him and he will pass... More

The place is not real fancy, but it is right on the water and within walking distance to town. The Mega market is across the street and you can get ANYTHING there. Great views and good partner with the No name bar on the same property. Beds were typical of Mexico and Caribbean, hard and not the best, but tolerable.
