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

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
