“Best Hotel Ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

One of the greatest experineces for me, my wife and friends. The place is just incredible, really private, great service, with a unique jacuzzi just in front of the caribbean where you can zip a margarita and listen to the waves.
It has a great boutique concept that just cathes the lifestyle of the island and gathers avant garde design.
The restaurant offers original dishes and many options.
If you are looking for a unique experincie you have to live Hotel B!
Also our diving experience was quite incredible.
If you are looking for a massive hotel, this is not for you.

I stayed at the hotel with my boyfriend for 2 nights. We loved the view (specially sunsets), snorkeling is great (lots of sea life), the jacuzzi is perfect after the sun is down, the food was very good and the staff very friendly.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a nicer view.

Making the reservation directly through the hotel website a couple of months ago was not possible and we had to use a third party agent - I assume this is now fixed ?

Check-in was very smooth and although we arrived a couple of hours before 2.00 p.m. Christian arranged a room for us quickly. Our oceanview (I think they all are) deluxe room was great; a wide floor to ceiling window and sizeable balcony with a spectacular view straight from a very comfortable bed. The room featured modern minimalistic decorations and there are no shabby couches or dirt absorbing thick carpets. Flat screened well functioning TV is mounted to the wall. Plenty of channels with good reception available. Functional small bathroom with a walk-in shower. Our room was spotless on arrival and was well serviced on a daily basis. There is no minibar and no fridge which is a small minus.

There is a comfortable, airy lobby area with a good and free wifi connection (wifi did not work in the room very well).

There is a very stylish pool and waterfront area with good access to sea and a jacuzzi in a perfect spot. The whole area is quite spectacular making the hotel premises a pleasant environment to spend time. Even the beach chairs are very comfortable. Only the lounge music that apparently is played on Sunday 1-6 p.m was a bit annoying to our taste but this was not such a big issue - the weekly program was well announced anyway.

The Bistro restaurant under Roberto's management is well operated. We received good service all around from Wilberth, Sugci and others. Breakfast was delicious (particularly the huevos mexicanas) althought the scuba trip pick-up time from the deck at 7.20 a.m. created a bit of a challenge - I would recommend the hotel to coordinate the breakfast hours and the boat pick-up time with Scuba Du. Dinner at the Bistro was tastier than what we had in any of the restaurants we tried in San Miguel.

The location of the hotel is North of the town but it is very easy to get a taxi within minutes and it costs 60 pesos one way. Alternatively you can rent a bike from the reception. We liked the location a bit away from the occationally very busy San Miguel water front. The Cozumel airport close to the hotel does not bother at all.

There is a dive shop (Scuba Du) at the hotel. Scuba Du's main facilities are on the other side of the town (El Presidente hotel) but the boat pick-ups are arranged from the Hotel B deck very punctually. The boat trips did not take too long and never bothered us at all although most of the dive sites are in the South.

In summary, we very much enjoyed staying at Hotel B and would recommend this hotel to anyone who is not looking for an all-inclusive, big resort treatment. The price / quality ratio is in the right ballpark and the general atmosphere is comfortable.

Room Tip: Oceanview deluxe in the upper floors (3 or 4)

This is a great hotel to relax and enjoy Cozumel.

Located on the north part of the island is quiet, away from the pier and downtown Cozumel.

The food is very good and the staff helpful and friendly.

They paid attention to detail all over to keep it simple yet very comfortable.

The pools and Jacuzzi have a great feel and viwe.

In all of our travels this is probably my wife and my favorite hotel that we have stayed in. Everything about this hotel was excellent. We almost couldn't believe how nice it was for the price. Almost all of the rooms are ocean front with a balcony and have an amazing view! The pool/spa outdoor area is so beautiful that we almost didn't want to leave the hotel at all during our time in Cozumel. You can snorkel right off of their pier and see many fish, eels, rays, and we even saw dolphins twice. The restaurant has excellent food and a nice open layout with views of the ocean. We also loved the location, because it was away from the main touristy area of town where the cruise ships dock. Still it was only a reasonable walk or inexpensive cab ride away from town. The staff was helpful, friendly, and spoke excellent English. Cristian at the front desk was especially knowledgeable and helpful when making any sort of plans. If we ever return to Cozumel we will definitely return to Hotel B.

Room Tip: Do NOT choose a "jungle view" room. You will definitely want to have the ocean view.

Charming eco-friendly boutique hotel located on the north side of the island. We had a comfortable room overlooking the ocean and the infinity pool. Spectacular view. Rooms are decorated with artwork done by local artists and every item is for sale. They have a nice little beach with outdoor couches, an excellent restaurant with indoor and outdoor eating areas, outdoor hot tub, spa services and yoga on the beach. The staff was very attentive and helpful. We had a lovely experience and would definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: It is worth the extra money to reserve a room overlooking the ocean. We just loved sitting on our te...

We went to Cozumel on very short notice, for rest and relaxation. Hotel B was perfect for our needs. Great, friendly staff, delicious food, quiet surroundings, and great snorkeling. Christian
helped us with a nice morning smile, cabs, places to eat, and a rental car for one day. Every staff member works hard with pride in their tasks.
We loved the everchanging view of the ocean and its colors. We will stay there again... I hope soon!
