Moved me without apology, but it went ok

I booked the hotel on Monday for $44. When I arrived on Tuesday, I was told the room wasn't available and they were moving me to another hotel. They didn't apologize and they didn't give me any assurance that the new room would be comparable to the one promised or in a reasonable location. And the guy who lead me to the new hotel clearly wanted a tip for handling their screwup. I was irritated, but the staff at the other hotel, the Bahia, was nicer and the room they ended up giving me was pretty good. And yes, the breakfast was great.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's lots of restaurants on Cozumel. I quite liked La Casita de Indio--good cooking, good prices, nice people running the place who speak good English. For diving, if you're most concerned about price (as I was), I recommend "Dive with George", which is run by George through one of the hotels on the same street as Indio. He charges $65 for a two-tank dive and $10 for equipment. He's a nice guy, good diver, and perfectly safe, but if you're looking for that full-service feel, probably someone else is better.

Perfect for the price. Nothing negative to say.

It was a great hotel. It was in a busy part of town. It is NOT on a road. You have to walk into the square to get to it. There isn't parking in the area but they let you park about 4 blocks away which isn't a huge deal. They let you eat breakfast at their sister hotel, casa mexican, and it is amazing. Eggs to order, waffles and pancakes made right in front of you. There was nothing special about the hotel room but everything was clean and in working order. There is a refrigerator and television. We mostly used our tablet to access their wireless internet to watch movies which was very convenient. I think it was the cheapest hotel that the web site had to offer and it was well beyond our expectations.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Just outside of the hotel entrance is a dive shop called Pro Dive. It was our first time diving and the owner named Eduardo Rodriguez took us. We met him at Chankanaab Park the next morning and our experience couldn't have been better. He is incredibly nice, inexpensive, intelligent, and easy to understand. We would highly recommend him. Also, there is a restaurant called Del Sur which is on the end of the next block (walking from the hotel toward the Oxxo) which is great and cheap. We went there twice in the 5 days we were there. Try the Bananna and Chocolate empanadas. In fact, all of the empanadas were great and they were only about $2 (US) each.

Comfortable and Good Location

Simple and no frills. Good value for the money. Clean room, hot water, A/C worked well, though it leaked water into room(used trash can to catch water) and a comfortable bed. Good location near town square and good restaurants. Would stay here again.

12 days

My review isn't different than most people about this hotel. It is basic, but clean. Highlights: comfy pillows and bed, fridge and tv for rainy days, very nice hard working maids.. please tip them well. Low points: mosquitos everywhere in the room, had to buy skeeter bombs and light them several times, bathroom drain stunk.. no trap, room dark.. not much light, some outlets didn't work, desk staff never gave us our emergency messages from home.. THAT was a BIG problem. Overall we spent most of our time outside, so the questionable issues weren't a big deal to us except the moscas and no messages. Breakfast at the sister hotel was very nice.

Go to the east side of the island. Buy a cheap cooler at the store and fill it with ice and drinks, snacks and get over there and unplug. One of the best and cheapest ways to spend a day or 1/2 day on Cozumel.

Loved Our Stay at Suites Colonial

About my ratings: Amenities 3, because it's a basic no frills place. AC worked well. Location 4, right ont the square. Easy access to restaurants and cabs. Great for our group with people going i different directions. Some might prefer to stay on a beach. Cleanliness 5 Wish my floors at home shined as much! Comfort 4 My ideal room would have more of a lounging area Staff 5 everyone was helpful and frienldly Value 5 can't be beat, especially considering the huge breakfast. We paid $634 pp for a flight from Akron to Cancun and 7 nights hotel. Stayed at Suites Colonial for one week over Christmas with my family of eight (spilt between 4 rooms). It was an ideal budget choice. Easy walking access to shops and restaurants. Walked to breakfast at Casa Mexicana each day and then grabbed acab right outside Casa Mexicana to our beach of choice. About the hotel: rooms were plain, but clean. Mattresses were new. My husband and I stayed in a suite. Bedroom with two beds. Bathroom. Kitchen had fridge, stove top, sink, plates, glasses, silverware and a few pots. Didn't really look cause we only used the fridge. Sitting room had table with four chairs, two seat sofa, and a folding bed. Asked for rooms away from the bar. We were put in 201.Rest of the family was right below us in rooms 104, 105, and 106. Bar noise never bothered us. We brought earplugs, but never used them. Very nice breakfast at Casa Mexicana included. Standards fruit, yogurt, pastry, cereal. Different hot dishes each day, plus cook to order eggs and waffles. Enjoyed access to Wifi. I used it from my room. This was our third trip to Cozumel. Previous trips we've stayed at Suites Bahia and Casa Mexicana. I'd stay at any of them again. A word of caution: the tile hallways, floors, and stairs are very slippery when wet. Pack shoes with good traction.

DO NOT stay here if you're doing the Ironman

Last time I stayed in Cozumel for the Ironman, I stayed at an all inclusive, which was nice, but I tended to stay there and didn't get out and enjoy as much of the local fare as I'd liked, which is why I decided to go with the Suites Colonial this year. The place is adorable. The rooms are very clean and are more than adequate for $48 a night. There is fresh coffee in the lobby every morning and the breakfast provided by their sister hotel is just a quick five minute walk and is very good. There are a few barkers from the shops close by that you have to deal with when you leave/arrive, but you have to deal with that pretty much anywhere in Cozumel, so it's not that big of a deal. My two main complaints: 1) No parking! I rented a scooter and while I could park it in the lobby overnight, I couldn't park there during the day, so I had to park it in a garage two blocks away. Not a huge deal, but something to consider if you're renting a vehicle. 2) The live music from the bar next door on Fri/Sat nights. Yes, the a/c somewhat drowns them out, but you can still hear them and they play until the wee hours of the morning. I normally wouldn't care, but I had to get up at 4am for an Ironman race on Sunday and the band played until 3am Sunday morning, which did NOT make for a good night's rest. My overall opinion? Great place to stay on the cheap if you just want a basic hotel and are easy going. If you like fancy schmancy or are doing the Ironman, go somewhere else.

Go to the El Foco " restaurant one block over. They're reasonable, you can write your name on the walls, they have an AMAZING conch ceviche and they're open late.
