“Great Dive resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Great dive resort, it is a small facility with only 22 rooms, all with a balcony facing the ocean. The entire staff was very gracious and treated you like family. They had a very nice feature, at the front desk they had a ‘Magic Jack’ phone that they allowed the guests to use to make free calls to the US and Canada. They have their own attached dive shop and dock, which I used for diving, but I also observed other guest being picked up by other dive operations. The resort seemed OK with other dive op’s picking up guests, which I have been told is not always the case at other hotels. I heard about the resort through ScubaBoard and they are consistently getting favorable reviews from experienced divers.
The rooms are not real fancy but they are large and very clean. No in room coffee or microwave but they do have a pot brewing in the early AM, in the lobby. The security was more than adequate with cameras monitored from the front desk, I always felt safe (most of the time I never locked the door and had no concerns for my laptop and camera).
I went down to stay and to dive with them for a week and ended up extending out another week, it felt like home, I will definitely be back.

Wow, what an experience. The dive shop in Playa recommended this scuba diving tour in Cozumel. I knew we were already in good hands with the Dive Shop owners, that we didn't feel at all skeptical. It was the most fantastic underwater diving experience I have had. Every time I reflect back on that trip, I get all teary eyed from the experience. We didn't stay at the resort, but certainly plan on it when we book our next vacation..So looking forward to another visit.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Blue Angel. The room was great and the staff was amazing. Everyone treated us like they had known us for ever and not like it was our first visit. We took full advantage of their restaurant, the food was very good at a reasonable price. This place is very quiet and perfect for divers or people just looking to get away to relax. I would stay there again and again. The dive shop operation was very good as well, I did seven dives with them and the guides were all very attentive to all of the divers. We will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Every room in the hotel face the ocean, there is not a bad room in the building.

This is an excellent hotel with a great view. I have the feeling that they would like to make it a little more of an upscale hotel, but the clientele are scuba divers. It is awesome that they cater to divers. The staff is great. The front desk was helpful, and changed our room by request, on arrival. Trini took care our room for us all week, and only moved our stuff in the bathroom the first day. After she figured out how we set up our room, she just touched up, and made sure we had a clean room, fresh towels, and clean sheets. The rooms themselves are comfortable. The A/C worked well. The TV (who cares about TV on a dive vacation?) had a pretty much Spanish venue. Heck, here in the US we have a lot of Spanish programming, they could do better on the TV...but, I reitterate...who cares? The toilet seal leaked a little, the shower drained out to under the vanity a little. The birds were loud...our alarm clock, and my wife put it on her ipad. I'll tell you; I miss the birds.

On a side note: My wife had an episode of stomach virus, (Nothing to do with any food, or water at Blue Angel), got dehydrated, and Eva, the wonderful gal that she is, called a cab, and was very concerned about making sure my wife would be well taken care of. I just want to say Thanks! to the Blue Angel staff, and all you divers...don't forget to drink your water.

Room Tip: They kind of need to trim some palm trees to have a better view of the ocean.

I was a little nervous booking this place having been to Cozumel a few times and knowing it is located a walk from the downtown area. I booked this place with short notice and didn't have any issues in the process. The staff was more then willing to work with me even in changing my dates.

This trip was to dive and that is what I did. The staff at Blue Angel was amazing! From the front desk to the restaurant and of course the dive staff. Everyone was more then willing to go out of their way to make sure that you were being taken care of.

Hotel Grounds - The grounds of the resort a small, but loved the layout. It was so easy to run back to the room if I forgot something before the boat left. I was disappointed that the pool was being repaired the whole time I was there, but not a big deal. Eva allowed guest to use her's, although I didn't go over there.

Room- The rooms are nothing to get excited about. They are rather large and mine even had a mini fridge (I think all of them do). The best part is every room has an ocean view. I had a small tree in part of my view, but it was still amazing!

Restaurant - I didn't have anything that I didn't like here. I enjoyed all the food and drinks. The views from the restaurant amazing. I always tried to get there 30 mins before sun set to get a table along with rail overlooking the water. Loved it! The only issues I had was one day for lunch there was really bad service. It was a result of a cruise ship being in and all the people on a tour stopping there. Not a big deal though. I thought the prices were reasonable and if I was staying here would sure go back; however I wouldn't make a special trip if in Cozumel and not staying here.

Diving - The selling point on this hotel for me was the shore diving. They offer unlimited shore diving, and it was decent. There was a ton of sea life 20m off the shore. Not the easiest shore entry, but not horrible. I did 3 shore dives when I was there. I would recommend doing them at different times of day to get a change what is out. The boat dives were amazing. I went out with George 3 times, he did an excellent job. He made sure to point one things that were around. When I left it was between the "I dove with George" and BAD [--] (Blue Angel DiveShop And Scuba School) shirt.

I can't say enough good things about this place. So much so, I ran into a few divers in Playa and they ended up coming over and staying at the same hotel. I can't wait to go back.
