As a middle-aged woman diver, this is the hotel for me and my diving friends. For over 12 years I have been coming to this hotel for Cozumel diving. The hotel has 37 standard rooms and two kitchenette suites – a majority of the rooms have a Caribbean ocean view. Each room features A/C, ceiling fan, two double beds, balcony, cable television, and a refrigerator. Free Internet is available in the lobby.
I can walk to the cheaper local taquerias for dinner and avoid the expensive restaurants. Jeanie's for breakfast next door offers a 10% discount to Barracuda guests. The breakfast at Jeanie's is a full meal for the price. Amenities near the hotel include a health spa with licensed chiropractor and full staff of message therapists to pamper you, car rental, souvenir shopping, grocery store, and a wide variety of restaurants. Also in easy walking distance are Star Bucks and an excellent movie theater showing recent releases in English. The hotel manager Juan will accommodate any room needs, but as written in other reviews this is a diver's paradise hotel with little to no luxuries for those hanging out at the hotel for the day. The best luxury is the view and the easy walk to the pier! Dive Paradise on site makes diving easy and the dive masters are extremely experienced. Three dives a day and then go out to dinner -- that way it is easy to avoid the No Name Bar music. Night dives from the Barracuda pier will provide everything from octopus to eels. Room Tips -- if using only one bed in the two bed hotel rooms, just double the mattress! The hardness of the mattress will not be an issue then. Another tip is to keep the shower floor drain covered to avoid unusually smells that can occasionally happen...use a plastic lid or a grocery bag. I have also seen friends buy cheap new pillows at the Mega (grocery store across the street) and just leave them when they head home. Cheap and easy fix! Last tip for a cool room temperature is to pull the metal screens on the windows closed while out diving and leave the A/C on; the room will be very comfortable or even too cool when you return from diving!
