“Nice Downtown Cozumel Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This was my first time staying in downtown Cozumel; usually stay further down the island. The Suites Bahia is a great hotel and very conveniently located almost directly off the main avenue. Rooms were very nice, king bed and queen bed separated by a short wall. Room was very clean and housekeeping kept it that way for our week long stay. Always had hot water and shower pressure was great. The room wall unit AC was a little noisy, but typical for that type of unit. Temperature control was easy and never had a problem cooling the room. The hotel does not have a restaurant, but provides breakfast (part of our package) at their sister hotel less than two blocks away (very short walk - and well worth it).

We stayed on the second floor and had a non-balcony room. We booked last minute for a dive trip, so that was all that was available. The front desk offered to move us when a balcony room became available, be we opted to stay in our room because it was very quiet. Was not sure about the street noise for the balcony rooms facing the street.

The hotel has excellent Wi-Fi, very fast. The room had a small kitchenette area with sink, microwave, and full size refrigerator. The hotel staff was always friendly and helpful. For the money, this is a great hotel (for Cozumel) in a great downtown location and is definitely recommended.

The hotel was perfectly situated across from the waterfront, near the town square, restaurants, our dive shop. The staff was so accommodating and helpful. Our room was immaculately cleaned each day, as was the hotel. I watched them clean. The WiFi was excellent. The breakfast buffet at their sister hotel was top notch. I will go back!

This hotel was much better than I had expected for the money. fI you pay cash they will also give you a discount. I stayed in the top floor corner room which had two balconies, one facing the ocean/main drag and one facing south. The room was small but had a queen bed that was very comfortable. Also included is free WIFI and breakfast. The hotel is located right in the middle of everything downtown. I stayed here for 3 nights on a last minute basis before moving to an all inclusive on the south end of the island. This is a great way to break up a trip to Cozumel and experience downtown San Miguel.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for an ocean view room.

This was my 6th time staying at Bahia, but the first time since my kids were born, 15 years ago!
The place has hardly changed at all.

If you want to be near the Ferry Pier, 2 blocks from the Plaza and steps away from a dozen restaurants and dive shops, Bahia is a great place to start. Starting at $55 a night for a water view room that includes balcony, refridge, plates, forks, knives, Microwave, and AC.

Yes they don't have a pool, but you can walk across the street and snorkel (and we saw people doing just that).

The breakfast package is incredible! And the sister hotel, La Mexicana, (1 1/2 blocks way, on the water) is definitely the next step up, but also pay for that.

Now for the Negatives:
They are on the main street and motorcycles did wake me up at 1am. And the Wall Unit A/C also woke me up during the night, when it cycled on and off.

So if you are a light sleeper, you'll want to look at the sister hotels (even the Colonial looked nice, and is just off the plaza).

I also have to say the front desk was very nice and helpful, and the cleaning lady did our dishes for us.

Room Tip: 28/29 38/39 48/49 face directly on to the water. The elevator is slow and most people walk up an...

This Hotel is located 1 block away from the town square. The rooms were large and well furnished. Bed could have been a little softer. Staff members were pleasent and the cleaning people did a great job. This property allowed us the use of its sister hotel pool (one block away) which overlooked the ocean and the main street. Great for people watching. The room price also provides a great breakfast buffet. This is not a resort hotel but better than most stateside discount chains. If you are looking for a great location and the ability to enjoy the locals, this one is for you.

Room Tip: If you like ocean views the rooms are available, however you must be made aware there will be traffi...

Stayed one night at the Suites Bahia last week. Pluses - huge room, plenty of space, good shower (although the bathroom was strangely small), AC worked fine, plenty of electical outlets, kitchen in the room (although we did not use it), OK breakfast down the road at sister hotel. We got a great price through hotels.com and for what we paid, I would consider it excellent value for money. Minuses - internet signal was not very reliable, and when it rained hard on the morning of our departure, rain came in around the window and through the AC and caused a minor flood...

Overall a good stay for the price and I would stay again if I could get a similar price.

Clean, safe and convenient - right downtown where all the action is. If you want to partake in the action though - you may not be able to get into the hotel. They lock the front door - will not give you a key - so if you are late you may not get in. Not sure if the desk clerk is sleeping or there is none. I have never heard of a hotel that has a curfew!!!!

Room Tip: Get a balcony
