8/10 Very good

Holiday stay
We truly loved the location and the staff was super friendly. The housekeeping did not do a very good job cleaning the room. The room was adequately appointed however the beds were like sleeping on a bare box spring the springs dug in to your body. The shower had a horrid sewer smell. We would stay again and most likely will as we had such a fun time at the facility.

Run down but worth it
It is a run down hotel but perfect if you want to be near the place with all the restaurants and shops. It us nicely located right in front of a mega grocery store/department store where you can fund anything you need. It has its private access to the beach for snorkeling and diving companies can pick you up right at the hotel’s pier. The pool looks nice and it has a bar with discount for hotel guests

Like staying with family!
Stayed for a scuba diving trip and it was as if we were staying with family! Everyone was SO friendly and helpful! The location is convenient to everything you need or want to do and the dive boat picked us up right there. There is a dive shop on site as well as bar, food, and parasailing. You can enjoy the pool or swim from the shore and also shore dive. There is a market across the street and taxis available all the time. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. We will be staying there again!

This property is a little older, but great place to stay. It’s clean but you will find some stains. The staff is awesome! The location is close to everything. Only problems were no hair dryer and like most of Mexico you cannot flush toilets tissues.

I am not a scuba diver, no not sure what they expect, however, as a tourist traveller.I felt like the air conditioner could have been more effective and the sheets softer.

Not fancy, romantic place but it does great job
I read review prior to stay, so I was prepared what I signed in for. Saying that, this place was above and beyond of what I thought it would be. Big patio was helpful everyday to dry anything wet, view was amazing every day, dining was convenient and the super store was life saving for little items we needed to add. I could not close the bathroom window, so it was hot and had some party noise from next door building. It didn't, however, affect in bedroom. Used toilet paper was suggested not to be flashed... Imagine what it would be in the hot room. But actually, drain smell was worse than the used pile of toilet papers. I highly suggest to put drain cover after shower and close the lid. No towel hanger at sink was not good. Furnitures were old but I didn't care. Hard bed, but had worse so it was ok. AC worked great. Didn't use the ceiling fan cause no wind but high noise. Didn't watch TV. If you are in Cozumel with limited budget, this place is for you. Pool and pool side were nice, scuba center in building was great. Will use it again
