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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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... More

We had stayed in this hotel on previous dive trips in the 90's and were very pleased to see the hotel still in good condition. The staff was helpful and pointed us to some nice restaurants. There is a pool (and a pool bar) were you will meet fellow divers and other interesting people from all points of the compass.... More

I have stayed at the Barracuda numerous times over the past 15 years. It is and remains a great dive hotel. It is close to downtown about a 5 to 20 minute walk to most of the restaurants. It is near two shopping centers so purchasing food is no problem. The rooms are clean, and the staff is efficient. There... More

I love the hotel and the facilities. Defiantly I will come back some time and stay there! You can bring your whole family with kids and divers, there is a dive center on the hotel "dive paradise" and they have an excellent bar!
