Hotel Barracuda is one of the oldest hotel in Cozumel, there are no amenities the mattress and pillows are thin and the bathroom are small with poor water pressure. All that been said for 4 guys this was the perfect spot for our diving trip. The hotel was clean and the boat picked and dropped us up straight at the...

Was referred to this location by a cruise ship crew member. Apparently this is the spot all crew members go hang out in port. Free swimming in crystal clear grotto and Carribean. Free snorkeling. Restrooms. Amazing food!!! International food and beer menu. I had the Shish Kabobb and Hummus. Best I ever had. Also beach area and a swimming pool....

If you are in Cozumel just for SCUBA diving and can do without luxuries this place will work for you. There is a room for improvement as the place is getting old. We had two rooms and in one of them AC had only two settings on or off. I recommend checking out your room before you select one. Hotel...

Have stayed here many times over the last 10 years. The view alone is worth the price. After that there are pluses and minuses. My major minus is the loud club music that goes on from about 11-6 everyday at the pool out back. But I'm diving all day and I have my own music that I can turn up...

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...
