The room was okay, however they had terrible music playing from early morning until evening. some of it was rap music with swearing even though there was a some children around. Everyone over 40 complained about it to no avail! They cater to the employees of the cruise ships who come and have a few drinks. Very poor marketing, food...

Wish I had read reviews before booking my stay. The beds are uncomfortably hard, the music starts early in the morning and is obnoxsiously loud all day. Repeated requests to turn it down, even when the beach was empty of customers, were ignored. Half the beach lounge chairs are broken and unusable. We bought our own drink supplies but were...

when staying at this hotel you have to realize that it caters to people that like to scuba dive. It is not a resort. It has the basics. We stayed there from February 5th through February 12. We found it to be exactly as described .The rooms look just like the pictures. There is a refrigerator in the room which...

The hotel is in a very poor condition, no beach, lousy service only positive was that it was in the centre of town.. We left after 2 days, of 5 since it was so bad. We didn't like cozumel much either if that means anything :(

I stayed here for one night and could not have been happier! The staff was helpful and there is a dive shop on site. I scheduled a two tank dive for the following morning. The food at the poolside bar was delicious and the staff was extremely nice. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. The location is...

Close to downtown San Miguel and Ocean front. One of the older properties on the island and well priced for divers. The rooms are basic but clean and all have mini fridges. No telephones in the rooms, TV's and one queen or 2 double beds. Beds are not the most comfortable but I noted that they were using mattress toppers...

I have never stayed at this hotel, but have been to the bar, pool and beach club out back a number of times. The hotel shares the area with the No Name Bar. Pool, beach and hotel are SUPER CLEAN. Not crowded. Food is VERY GOOD and reasonably priced. If you are coming to the island on a cruise and...

Friendly staff, decent rooms with mini fridge. No internet in room. Two bars around nice patio/pool area. Beach was rocky, great for scuba and snorkeling bad for swimming. Jeanie's Restaurant next door offers 10% discount for guests of Barracuda. Mega store right across the street. I would stay there again.

The Barracuda is a great diver's hotel. I've been staying there for 16 years. Nice rooms with a fridge. The staff are very friendly, attentive and helpful. There is a nice little beach area with a small pool and the world famous No Name Bar where the food is great and the waitresses make you feel at home. Located only...
