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

The property needs some TLC. Beds were uncomfortable but clean. Personally, I will not pick this property again. Nice pool and bar on the water but, rooms need major help. I don’t normally give reviews but I thought you should know.

The property was ok. Would not pay over $70. Per night. The bathrooms stunk of sewage in the morning and there is no elevator. I didn't bring a hair dryer as their web page said you could get one on request. They had no hair dryers. Was told could get a covid test on site but never saw one materialize.
