This hotel is what it is; a nice place for the price. Do not go expecting the Presidente you will be disappointed. But it is clean, value oriented and you should not expect more for the money. It is on the water, walking distance to town with great sunsets.

Bed was ridiculously awful... More

This hotel will offer good services at a slightly high price above all in the high season. Also, the Wi-Fi connection only works in the hallway, leaving the rooms offline. Nevertheless, this place has many pros: half of the rooms are located towards the sea, that means a wonderful wake up. Also, the swimming pool with the bar serves as... More

Barracuda is a small no frills budget vacation motel. It is unique in that it is commonly <$100 per night, but located within walking distance of town square and still on the water (convenient for diving purposes). If this place was nicer, it would cost more. Or if this place was located off the water it would cost less. In... More

The staff was really nice. Not a 5 star, but has everything you would need to stay and dive. They have a restaurant on site. The food was pretty good. The room was a little dated, but clean and safe. My balcony had an amazing view of the ocean and cruise ships

Stayed here one night during the half-ironman event. Its right at the finishline. They have a diveshop adjacent,and you can get picked up daily at the private pier for dive trips..very handy. On the way out to the reefs,the boat stops at numerous resorts/hotels,so thats pretty common. Nice little bar area and pool-no name bar. Rooms are v basic,but clean,w... More

It is right downtown on the water, every room has a ocean view and it's one of the cleanest hotels around. It's old but well maintained and cleaned. If your a diver it's everything you need at a very reasonable price. People are absolutely the best in Cozumel, and they will get anything you need. It is not an all... More

Basic rooms, which were pleasant to stay in. The AC worked great. Beautiful view off our balcony. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The bar in the pool area is FANTASTIC! Fun group!

Restaurant on quiet beach great location. We sat outside undercover bug tables inside too. Really good selection of fish dishes. Party orders included cod, trout and barramundi. All cooked fresh and beautifully flavoured. Imaginative desserts enjoyed by party. High chairs available and children's menu. Would definitely return.
