one of the best locations for people watching - characters of all sorts, but stay away from the chicken wings - cooked in some sort of bacon fat. good location for dive boats, and right across from the Mega - the go to food replenisher on the island - aso the best rates for ATM and currency.

Its pretty much just a plain and simple hotel room, no thrills or add on's which is exactly what we wanted. It was nice to be able to walk right out and going snorkeling right from the hotel. It was also nice having the Mega right across the street as well.

This hotel is about 100 feet from water. Very pretty views. Right in town, but very quiet. Had small issues that were addressed quickly. Very good place for a cheap rate. Eating places ALBERTA'S for fish & LA Choza for authentic. Please don't expect the dream or westin.

Great place in town to enjoy a cold beer, they have a sandy area where you can bask in the sun as well as take a dip in the refreshing clear Cozumel waters. Appetizers and food are also reasonably priced.

I stayed here at the recommendation of a friend. The room was nothing fancy but it was clean and the shower flow worked well (which is always my minimum requirement). The amenities for a modestly priced hotel are actually above par. But the greatest aspect of this place is it's great location which is close to many restaurants, bars and,...

Great rooms but can only get double beds but not really a problem. Immaculately kept up. Had good TV, wifi, refrigerator. The best location for everything. The drinks at the bar were expensive but good and the server's were excellent with just the right amount of attention. Loungers were not good although they had a limited amount of shade and...

This is a dated hotel but for the price the location is amazing. Right in the middle of town and right on the water. I mean from every room you could throw a rock in the ocean. I snorkeled every day we where there. Not all inclusive but many restaurants in walking distance and the no name bar and restaurant...

Booked this place to stay in January, for a dive trip in July 2016. Am familiar with the hotel from past visits. Oceanside, pool, swim up bar, sunsets, boat pickup at dock for diving - all sounds perfect. Problem is, we were not told that the hotel rented out the pool bar, and all surrounding tables to the 'No Name...

The work staff are kind and positive and the atmosphere is laid back and fun. If you want Cozumel to feel less like 'senor frogs' and more like a relaxed vacation, this is a great place for you. Cheap food and drink, GREAT ocean entrance, and an AMAZING pool.

Stayed here two nights on a quick vacation. Great value for the price. I believe all rooms have Oceanfront balconies, which come equipped with two chairs. The views are lovely. Recommend top floor for best view. No elevator, but no problem. Good snorkeling right off the shore of the hotel, and stairs to the ocean provide easy entry to the...
