“My home away home”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

It's my 3rd time stay here for a weeklong dive trip in March. I felt it's my home in Cozumel now. I've been staying in other B&Bs in Cozumel before, when comparing to the nice quiet local neighbourhood, the overall tidiness & cleanliness of the inn & rooms, great water pressure of shower, & its conveninet location to supermarkets & dining places; Coral Reefs Inn always my 1st choice.

As a solo traveler, I often walked/biked around Cozumel, eat out at night & felt very safe; even felt safer than in my hometown. I really love the laid back atmosphere of Cozumel & the contagious laughting of the islanders. Jerry & Leona were not just friendly but they always went out their way to help all the guests. Really looking forwrd to be back to Cozumel's crystal blue water & CRI.

My wife and I have just finished our 4th stay at the C.R.I. We love it there! Just 3 blocks from the grocery store and 6 blocks from Dive Paradise who we do all our diving with. We just leave our gear in a dive locker at the barracuda and walk back to the Inn for lunch after diving. The Inn has all the kitchen essentials you need to prepare your meals on the Roof top and has a great view of the city also. The 5 room Inn is quiet and relaxing with nice clean rooms including a great walk in shower and your own Fridge. The owners Leona and Jerry are top notch people who really care about your stay with them, and do everything they can to make it a good one. Very secure and up to date facility, Looking forward to our 5th stay in Feb. Would'nt stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: The 2nd floor rooms are the most conveinent access to the roof top kitchen area

I just returned from another stay at the Coral Reef Inn. I meet my brother and his wife there every year, and yes we have already planned next years trip, while on the roof/ kitchen. Jerry and Leona make the property, being the consumate hosts and best of friends. Great friends were made over the years, all return guests. The Inn has great facilities for divers to clean and dry their gear. The rooms are clean and quiet, the Inn is in a great neighborhood and there is access to both major stores, and tons of local eateries, which have all been fantastic. We meet new friends there every year and I wish I could make a trip back sooner, Thanks again Jerry and Leona.

Room Tip: Room five is the only double room.

Although few have heard of this place and we would rather keep it our secret we can't stay all the time, so, the secret is out. This is the perfect place for couples or families with older kids (under 14 not allowed) who want to be in a quiet hotel but close to everything. It is perfect for divers or those wanting to do their own thing on the island. The owners, Jerry & Leona, are wonderful people. They visited with us at nights and lunch at the outdoor kitchen. One night they even took all the guests to supper. On the other hand they are not so nosey that they are all in your business but are helpful should you need anything. Truthfully this place would not be what it is without them.
The rooms and grounds are spotless. Each room has a small refrigerator and there is a large one in the outdoor kitchen that is shared by guests. Commodities are provided and each guest has a bin in the kitchen to keep bread, etc. We enjoyed breakfast and lunch here saving alot of money. The inn is only a few minutes from both of the major grocery stores so it is easy to purchase what you need and cook on site. If you prefer to eat out there are numerous restaraunts within walking distance. The dive pier pickup at Hotel Barracuda is about a 10 minute walk or a $4 cab ride.
The gate is kept locked at all times and the place is very secure. There is a dive gear rinse and storage area along with areas to sun or relax. Wi-fi is available for $10/week and worked OK, maybe a little slow. The beds were comfortable and we had TV which we rarely watched as we spent our time visiting with other guests on the roof.
Other than having to climb stairs with luggage (common in Cozumel) the only two negatives were actually what made the place more positive for us. One is there is not a pool. This would be bad if you are a pool person that didn't dive or had kids. The lack of a pool was a plus for us as it would attract more guests and cause the price here to go up. The other "negative" is that it is not on the "beach" (if there is really such a thing this close to town). Again this allows for affordable rates and makes it a much quieter place to stay. You can see cruise ship pier from the roof/kitchen but its by no means a true ocean view. If they had a pool and were on the beach either the price would be double or you couldn't book as there would be a waiting list.
We like this place so much we were planning our return next year prior to leaving. Hopefully it won't be difficult to get a room because the secret will not be kept forever.

Room Tip: If you have issues with stairs request a downstairs room as there is no elevator (this is Mexico). T...

this was our second visit to cozumel staying at the Coral Reef Inn, and I must say this hotel is the best deal in cozumel, it is very well kept, it is clean by our standards not Mexican standard, the rooms are big and comfortable,air conditioning as well as fans, the best roof top patio ever, very close to everything, very safe and secure, and Leona and Jerry are very very very friendly and accommodating they make this place the Gem that it is, and we met a lot of very nice people on the roof top patio, they have bikes for rent, as well as laundry service.It just does not get any better, we stayed at a hotel in Playa for $95.00 a night, which was nice but not as nearly as nice as the Coral Reef Inn, We will definitely be back and soon!!!!!!

Room Tip: they are all good

We booked Coral reef Inn as a last minute trip for a dive holiday to allow us to escape from the Winter of Mexico city. The clean room and bathroom with lashings of hot water were exactly to our taste. We spent our week diving and enjoyed the quiet ambience of the Inn, to get a good nights sleep between our active days of diving. The self catering for breakfast meant that we did not waste time in the morning waiting to be served, but simply ate and went.
We can fully recommend this Inn for any divers looking for quiet lodging with facilities to clean / dry their gear and go self catering.

Excellent value and friendly owners / managers.

Room Tip: All rooms have AC.
