I recently stayed at the Safari Inn for 17 nights on a dive trip. They Saved me a very nice room with an ocean view, the AC worked great and the cleaning lady did an excellent job. the price was very cheap.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and would stay here again! It was such a great location right downtown for such a great price. Has a beautiful view of the water from the hallway. Sometimes you can hear street noise because the windows were only shutters.

This place was amazingly spacious for so cheap! The bed was enormous and clean, and all our towels were made into little fans and swan, super cute. The air con was great, there is no TV, and they give you bottles of water too. Downsides, the air con is slightly loud and so is the generator next to the bathroom.... More

I was not as thrilled with this motel as some of the other reviewers. On the other hand, if you are looking for a cheap place to just sleep, this is a good value. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Toilet did not work well and the sign telling you to put used toilet paper in the... More

For about $300 more than it would have cost to get my son PADI certified in Virginia, I got him certified, with two additional days of diving, plus 5 days of two dives for myself (all equiptment included for both of us) and 7 nights of lodging. The dive instuctor was fantastic, and the dives were great. I had expected... More

This was our first time to Cozumel and did not know what to expect or where to stay. We dove with Aqua Safari and the Safari inn is right above the dive shop and on the main street. We like the fact that we did not have to walk or travel far to get to the shop. We also like... More
