“The best!!!!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

We just got back last night from a week at SCC and it was incredible. We dove everyday with Geiser as our DM. He has been working at SCC for 17 years and yet had the enthusiasm of a newbie. Great dives every day, The devil's throat was the best ever. Tomas and the restaurant/bar staff will treat you like royalty, just don't be mad at them for the weight that you will most assuredly gain. Rooms are clean and simple, no t.v. or phone and that makes them even better. We stayed in #2 in the court yard and had pretty good Wi-Fi service. I am already looking into dates for next years trip.

This is a great dive location, the boats come every morning right to the dock and pick everyone up. The system this facility has is organized and easy to use, sign up for a dive the night before, your name is on a list designating your boat the next day.
I brought my 16 year old daughter with me for her open water certification and the staff did a fantastic job with supplying the right size equipment and ensuring she understands the expectations of certification.
There are extra dives to wrecks along with night dives that are easily accessible. Shore diving is unlimited right from an easy entry set of stairs and/or a nearby ladder.
The food each day was prepared on location and exceeded our expectations, we chose the all inclusive plan. Downtown Cozumel was within a short walk which made purchasing supplies and evening entertainment a snap.

We spent three nights at Scuba Club. The diving, food, boats and site facilities were all great. There was a strong emphasis on safe diving, which is sorely lacking in Cozumel. We'll be making this a regular destination.

We'd particularly highlight Brian as a first class dive leader who exposed us to some great moments while diving.

We stayed at Scuba Club Cozumel for the first time as my son wanted to take his Padi. He took it with William, who was a great teacher! The atmosphere was very relaxing, we felt very welcomed. The food was good and the staff were very friendly. Thank you to Sofia for arranging everything. the location was great, it seemed that most of the rooms had a bit of view of the ocean, were very spacious and clean. The smaller guest bed was a bit hard but all in all we really enjoyed it.

Anyone looking for pure luxury is going to be a little bit disappointed with this dive resort. That does not mean that scuba club Cozumel is not a great resort. Common areas and private rooms are kept very clean, the staff is exceptionally friendly. The property and amenities are tailored perfectly to divers of all ages. Unfortunately, we did not get to the tipping guide at the beginning when we check in. So we started tipping individual waiters in the restaurant until realizing that tipping was to be done at the end in a discrete envelope, that allows you to write down how much of the tip to allocate to who. Note that tipping at the end is for both, restaurants, Hotel Maid and Dive Services including the dive master and boat crew.

If you have purchased the all inclusive package, food had good variety. For breakfast, you will be served from a type of buffet with 12+ different breakfast items. You will also have fresh-cut fruits to choose from for every meal. For lunch you will have different types of salads and raw vegetables, along with your choice of the daily diver special meal (typically a Mexican dish) or ordering off the menu. For dinner, you generally can pick between soup or salad then one of three entrées such as meat fish or vegetarian and then one of two desserts.

Tip: either come early or late during the breakfast lunch or dinner hours to secure an ocean side table outside to enjoy the nice climates and view.

If I had things to improve, they would be limited to changing the mattress to a more comfortable one, a better overview of the property and services, especially if you have purchased the all-inclusive package, by the front desk upon check in.

The only really negative that stood out, was that the dive shop across the street was extremely overpriced. I have been to dive shops in all four corners of the world, including other places in the Caribbean, Hawaii, Virgin islands, Asia, Europe, but never seen such an overpriced dive shop. All other charges are mostly reasonable. We had our own equipment so only needed to rent lights for a night dive that we did and Nitrox for the tanks, which was at $10 per tank a little above average. Typically, with other dive operators I have had packages where it was $12 for a two tank nitrox dive. The extra excursions, such as a wreck dive or night dive were only $40 per person for a single tank dive.

Bottom line, if I am looking for a no-frills, clean, efficient and tailored to divers resort, this would be my place to go again. With a really friendly and exceptional staff, and a resort packed and other, like-minded Divers, you cannot get a better crowd or place to stay at if you are a diving enthusiast.

Booked the 5/4 night package. We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. The hotel and dive staff were amazing. The Diving was great and the overall dive operation was beyond what we expected. We will be coming back to dive again. An excellent destination for a quick dive trip to the Caribbean.

What an awesome place. This was our first time in Cozumel and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. We love Diving more than anything, and so does this hotel. It has every accommodation a diver could need. Lockers down by the water and dive shop, spacious patios with dedicated hanging for wetsuits and other gear. The rooms are right on the water, our view was awesome. The old Spanish Villa style rooms we perfect. The food here that can be included in your stay is well worth it! Delicious and nutritious. They really do seem to have catering to divers down to a science. All of our dive masters were great (hola Chocky and Brian!!) and the boat trips were Incredible. All the dives went so smooth and really enjoyed going to 2 different locations daily. They are good at mixing it up and arranging dives so you get different experiences every time. We will definitely be back. It can't come soon enough!!

Room Tip: They are all good. If you want to sleep in for some reason, don't get a room by the dive shop.
