Thoroughly Enjoyed This Hotel

I was staying as a single. This hotel was perfect for me. It's location could not be better. It is on the water, across from the Mega Store (perfect for snacks, water, beer, etc.), easy walk to town (about 8 min) for shopping, numerous wonderful restaurants within a 5 min walk. I never needed a taxi! They use Paradise Divers, but other dive operations will pick up at Baracuda's dock for free. They have an Iron beach with easy access to the water, including a 20 ft cliff jump! Large sand area for sunbathers, as well as a nice pool with a swim up bar. The cruise ship crews hang out here during the day which add a welcome bit of fun and eye candy to the day. The only amenities in the room are a bar of soap, 2 towels, cable TV (No remote), small refridg. No hairdryer or shampoo, no safe box in the room. (But you can have things locked up in a room off the front desk.) Internet is only in the lobby or around the pool, beach area. Friendly staff was awesome. During my stay in March, I did not see any bugs (no ants!!!) in my room, and I always had hot water when I needed it. Pillows were great, mattresses where well worn. AC worked fine. Hauling dive gear to the dock is a short trip from any room. Every room has an ocean view I believe, thus, no extra charge for an ocean view room, like in the resorts. There is no elevator, but there only 4 floors. Rooms are meant for only 2 people max. This is a bare bones hotel that is run by nice people, clean, perfect location, nice beach, on the water. I would stay here again!!!!!

Loved the pool/beach area!!

The room itself was clean, but only ok. No iron, hair dryer, or safe. The beds are pretty hard, but that seems typical for Mexico! The balcony overlooking the ocean was pretty great. The best part about the place is the pool area. The pool is clean and has a swim up bar! There is a sandy area with loungers, hammocks and tables. Decent bar food. The access to the ocean is pretty and easy to maneuver, even in snorkel gear! Or if you're just swimming, you can jump right off the dock! Also, the location is perfect. A little down the road from the heavy cruise ship traffic, but easy walking distance to the town square. There's a huge market across the street with everything from clean socks to produce to liquor, and reasonably priced. I would absolutely stay here again!

Low cost Convenient

The hotel is on the edge od town town and right on the water. The rooms are basic but clean and have a small fridge. The view from your room is very nice looking out over the swimup bar to the water. There is a small balcony with a couple of chairs. The beds are hard. There is a huge Mega grocery right across the street and there is a basic auto/moped rental next door. At around $50 a night it is a good value. We were in Cozumel 6 times in 2012 and stayed there every trip.

Pretty new restaurant Kondesa, a few blocks away. It is a romantic patio restaurant with reasonably priced tasty food. It is on Avenida 5 which is becoming a nice restaurant row.
