“Great service and diving accomodations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

We just got back from Cozumel on Friday after a 5 days stay at this all inclusive hotel. I went there to do my open water certification. This was the perfect place. We had a front room facing the ocean on the first floor. In front of the hotel was perfect for wall diving. I finished my classes there. The depth was from 7 ft - 22 ft. I also went nite diving with my husband, who was my diving instructor. It was awesome. We had 3 other friends with us and had a private boat the entire time we were there. The service was excellent and the food, very good. This was my first time doing an all inclusive and I was very pleased. My husband and I had a great time here, and I recommend it for new divers, as well as experienced divers.

Room Tip: Clean, safe, friendly and great service.

My husband always wants to go back here after diving anyplace else. We are not "world travelers" but love our "comfort zone". This place is comfortable for divers. And I always see something new and different underwater. The dive masters and boat crews go out of their way to show us their great reefs.
The staff here does hospitality! Friendly, and great service too.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have a great view. All our clean and well-appointed. We like the front of the re...

Great place for divers and non-divers alike. Clean rooms, great food, beach area for sunning, pool for swimming if you don't like the Ocean. A house reef for snorkelers & divers. Unlimited shore diving, Nitrox available for drift diving, large boat fleet for divers, a short walk from park, mega-mart & Margaritaville.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are up some narrow stairways - if you have knee or back problems the rooms on the...

This is an outstanding facility. VERY clean, great service and the dive operation was near perfect. It is filled with repeat divers... Which I will be one now.

Food was great. Service was great. Diving in Cozumel is always great and this dive hotel made it better.

This was our second visit to SCC--our first was five years ago. If you want luxury or to party all night, this is not the place for you. However, if you want to dive, it's pretty close to ideal.

#1. Location: Close enough to downtown to walk--and very close to a huge Wall-mart type store where you can get food, drinks, sunscreen, clothes, etc. However, the boat rides to the dive sites are quite long and some of the smaller boats are on the slow side.

#2. The rooms: Yes, the beds are, shall we say, firm, but the rooms are large and have lots of space for all your dive gear, a balcony, and, most importantly, really hot water and lots of it. Also, everything is extremely clean. They have water coolers on each floor and provide all guests with a pitcher.

#3. The food: the breakfast buffet has something for everyone (including lots of fruit); lunch is a salad bar, plus American or Mexican items, and dinner is an appetizer, entree, and dessert. Drinks are extra. It's not particularly fancy or gourmet, but it's good and filling. They have a Mexican-style BBQ once a week with a pinata.

#4. The pool is tiny, there are hammocks facing the water, a pier and a shore dive, and NO BEACH. I can't imagine how bored the non-divers must be here. IMHO, if you want a place with lots of activities that include diving, go somewhere else. But if diving is your focus, and you like to be around other divers, this is a good place to be.

#5. Service is generally excellent and the price is hard to beat. Bring your own towels for the boat and your own lock for your dive locker. And request Geiser for your divemaster--he was excellent!

Room Tip: If you stay near the dive shop, you'll hear the sound of banging tanks in the morning. However...

This was our second trip to Cozumel for diving and we chose Scuba Club Cozumel because we stayed last year at Hotel Cozumel and didn’t like it. I’m glad we tried SCC because this is now our hotel of choice when we come to dive. It was everything we hoped for – clean room, quiet hotel, on the water, and a great dive operation.

First of all, to reiterate past statements, if you do not dive or snorkel, then SCC would not be for you. This hotel caters to divers and there is one thing on the agenda – diving….everything else is second. It would be as if you were straight and ended up on a gay / lesbian cruise…..

Our room was #42, ground level and was on the dive shop side of the hotel. Little patio with a nice view of the water and “beach”. (When I say beach…there is no beach per se, just sand.) King sized bed was firm but not rock hard as some of the other beds we’ve discovered in Cozumel. Air conditioner was loud so we tried to sleep with the windows open and the fan on – however the fan sounded like it was going to fall off….but overall the room was nice. In speaking with other guests, some of whom have been coming to SCC for years, tell us that every room is different. For example the room next to us also had a king sized bed, but the bathroom was upstairs, and they had a wraparound patio on the water. This is the room we want for our next visit. The chambermaids are fantastic.

There was some conversation about ground floor vs. upper floor. With the ground floors, you are close to the action and don’t have to walk far….but the view is not great. On the upper floors, better sea view, but to have to schlep your equipment up two to three flights of stairs if you don’t use a locker.

Restaurant and bar – this is where everyone gathers for the meals, and for the most part guests will stay in their groups. Food was a solid average / good with a sprinkle of really good...nothing to write home about. Every day there is a lunch and dinner special. And once a week, there is a Mexican Beach party with BBQ. On the night of our BBQ, they had some of the best carne asada that we have ever had --- our compliments to the chef. The servers are wonderful and attentive.

Dive operation -- The dive operation is very good and efficient. You are usually assigned to the same boat for your stay so you will get to know the crew and your dive master. We had Aeriel as our DM and he has this uncanny knack for finding the smallest sea creatures….he even found a female octopus with her eggs in a small hole….but then he knows these reefs like the back of his hand.

We were weathered out on one day of diving, so the dive shop offered us a discount on the two tank twilight / night dive. My recommendation is to do that dive!

Room Tip: You won't need an alram clock if you are by the dive shop....the clanging of the tanks will wake...

I did not stay at the Scuba Club, but I dove with them for two days. Crew was safe and professional. We did a couple drift dives and clarity at 100 feet was UNREAL! Could still see the surface. Would recommend this dive shop time and time again, they know the best local spots depending on the weather and water conditions. If you dive, do your self a solid and hook up with Scuba Club Cozumel. Can't comment on the accommodation of the hotel.
