This is our second time here, so I am going to try to give some practical advice for first timers instead of just raving on about how great it is.

First off, this is a dive resort, there are no TVs or phones in the rooms. The place is spotless and the service is excellent- most of the staff have been working here for over 10 years, some over 20 so they understand the level of service that is expected from their primarily North American clientele.

There is decent wireless internet, but Netflix, HBO, Showtime etc. streaming does not work in Mexico- its legal issue. If you need entertainment at night, bump your Netflix account up to 5 or 6 DVDs before you leave for the week and bring a laptop to play them.

Bring locks for the lockers, it saves you hauling your gear to the room and we had zero issues with theft. There are rails on the balcony to dry your gear, but the plastic hangers from the closets do not do well with wetsuits, so a sturdy one from home is handy.

Bring a dive light. We dove 5 days and it rained 2 of those days, but with lights it did not matter as much. The night diving out front is great, but if the ocean is rough, exiting can be a bit dicey. Also, if you shore dive at night, you need to get your tanks before 6pm.

Bring or buy snacks for the boat. Breakfast starts at 7am, buffet style, the boats arrive around 8:00 and are gone by 8:30, but with 2 dives a and a surface interval, you may not be back at the resort until 2:00. The boats have water and juice, but no food.

Also, this is a bit like summer camp for divers, don't bother with a nice set of clothes for dinner as is expected in some Caribbean resorts- shorts and a shirt are fine. They charge for alcohol, so it limits the power drinkers and disruptions at 1am from the same. If you really want a more resort-like experience, this may not your cup of tea.

Speaking of food, there is a wal-mart style store-Chedari? about a 5 minute walk from the resort- we buy our light batteries (saves packed weight) and snacks there on our day or arrival.

This time we also found the 6 theater movie theater -Cineopolis attached to the store. If is pouring rain in the afternoon, the theater has current US films in English with Spanish subtitles and is a nice as any theater in the States. Has popcorn, Coke and M&Ms, it was a nice break from the rain. If its pouring rain, you can get a cab to and from the store for $5.00. The showtimes are online.

The diving is great and the place is run extremely well. Our DM for the week was Ariel and he did a great job of finding interesting things on the reef that we might have missed- most of the DMs have been in these waters 5-6 days a week for 15-20 years.

Also, they have 7 boats of various sizes, so they can accommodate large groups/clubs from the states on a large boat and still insure that a pairs of divers end up on a smaller boat.

The rest of the staff does a great job- the bellhops, waiters, boat crews, they understand what is expected from their repeat customers.

Food is spectacular, staff outstanding and the DM's are top notch. This trip we had Jesus and we have had him before when we stayed at SCC. He's the best and I can't say enough about him. All of the rooms are unique. Relaxed and casual atmosphere.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

It was great vacation and dive, dive , dive. Hotel is spotless and has a character. We got a great room on the third floor that exits to a huge flat roof. Close and somewhat above diveshop so very nice dinging of the tanks around 6.30 am will wake you up. Which is perfectly fine as breakfast is served from 7 am. and the boat leaves at 8.30. We were lucky as we were on a smaller boat and everybody (8) were ready at 8 am, so we usually were gone diving at 8.10. It might be a bit crowded near the fresh water tank to rinse your gear when everybody is coming back from morning dives, or well 5 min in the sun who cares. FOOD IS VERY GOOD. Supper is basically a la cart, as you choose at lunch time for the supper meal usually fish or meat or chicken. Drinks are not included but there is a supermarket a block away. I was not too impressed with dive sites, all of them are drift dive which is great on one site, but you just fly above. But is my personal opinion. I would call macro dives. Some huge fish, some sharks, some turtles. Shore dives is a bit shallow 23’ max, but visibility is good water is 82 degrees and you see every tiny little thing – micro dives. Overall great, would recommend, and will definitely try to come back.

My son got his scuba certification this past summer so we decided to take a trip with the dive shop. They are along time Scuba Club Cozumel visitors which made it an easy choice. The resort is at the outer end of the main strip and in a quite location. The resort itself has a nice layout with easy access to the resturant, diveshop, the dive lockers, the dive boats and water for shore diving.

I won't spend time talking about the diving as you all know that Cozumel offers great drift dives.

The rooms are nice and open but have very few of the nicer qualities of other resorts. No television, WiFi access is poor to fair but usually it's a trip near the resturant to have consistent access. Night entertainment is non-existent unless you go out near the port or downtown.

The resturant provide a descent amount of food and it's all pretty good. You should try the coconut ice cream! Delicious!!!

So as far as the resort goes it's not high end by any means. This resort is for the hardcore scuba diver that is not worried about top notch amenities.

Diving with Scuba Club was very easy and the sites we were taken to are very nice. We went the second week of July so the weather was hot and humid. We had a large group of divers on the trip that were dived between two boats, one large and one small. I was on the large boat and we had 24 divers plus the staff. There were three dive masters plus boat hands. So this boat was crowded to say the least. The divemasters divided us up and groups jumped in about 5 minutes apart and your surface time between dives started after the last diver was in the boat. The shore diving in front of the resort is very nice if you're not looking for coral. There are some structures that have lots of crevices that have plenty of marine life around them. It's a very easy dive as long as the current is not too strong. Look at the bouyies to see which way the currents are moving before jumping in.

My son had a wonderful time and I was happy to be there to enjoy his first true diving experience. Of course he's hooked and we're looking forward to many more dive trips.

Great dive staff, great food, shore diving is good and free. The only thing I didn't care for is how they do there tipping. They won't let you tip as you go. They want it all at the end , in envelops per housekeeping, bartender, waiters, mate'd, Divemaster, boat help, etc. it can be overwhelming at the end of the week. And then you get the bar bill:-( The only thing that is free is water with your dinner. Tea and soda is extra.

Room Tip: If you stay on the 2-3 floors, you have a ton of steps to climb and they are STEEP. Ground floors are great with great views as well. All rooms are different and unique which I like.
