Staff was friendly & helpful. No Name Bar staff were excellent. The Hotel itself is very basic, no frills, go inexpensive rooms for scuba divers.

Great location inexpensive,on the h2o,rooms facing h2o,across from Mega store.

Can not flush toilet paper so imagine the smell in the wastebasket/bathroom. No restaurant. Unreliable WiFi. Windows in bathroom won’t close completely allowing mosquitos to come in every day. However, staff was very nice and room was at least clean. Very minimalistic hotel.

It's right on the water, excellent view. Close to town within easy walking distance.

Good location. Some loud music on the weekends by the pool and lounge which is separate from the hotel.

My dive buddies and I have been staying at the 'Cuda for years on scuba trips. It is a wonderful place to stay for us. Nothing fancy...just a clean, comfortable room with a wonderful sunset view. I don't think the staff has hardly changed in all of our years staying there. Very friendly people. It's not the Ritz, but it's home when I'm in Coz.

This property is old and run down. If you want a place to shower and sleep, it’s fine. The bed was comfortable and housekeeping keeps the place very clean. But there’s no hairdryer, shampoo is in a baby food jar, bare light bulbs on the wall, duct tape on the door. The air conditioner worked thank god because it’s humid as hell there.

LOVED the pool area and the parties with the cruise ship members !!!! Internet access in the rooms would be preferred.

I did not like that they charged an additional fee at check-in, above what I had already payed on Orbitz (surprise).

Very basic room, inexpensive in a great location. Would have liked to have a dresser in our room, could have a coffee pot and microwave in the lobby. But for the cost the air conditioner worked great, for ease of diving, and convenience to town we would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful staff at this hotel, the dive boats pick you up right at the hotel dock, great location close to town, only 2 drawbacks... extremely loud thump-bumping music at the pool bar and the mattresses are uncomfortable.

The only truth about the description listed is the location. Location is walking distance from everything. The rest is completely false! No room service, no coffee shop/cafe, no kitchen or space to spread out for dining as described! The kitchen is a small fridge nothing else not even a coffee maker or microwave. Definitely no mini bar. No pillow top beds, hardest bed I have ever slept in. Free wifi only in the lobby, no mini golf. You can't even lay at the pool unless you buy food or drinks from the restaurant that runs it. Which is separate from the hotel. You also can not lay in the lounge chairs on the patio outside the pool area unless you again buy food or drinks from restaurant. The hotel has rented the whole area to them. Waste of money find a different hotel

Older hotel in immaculate condition. Scuba on premises. Snuba next door at Jeannie's. Great for any meal. 2 blocks from downtown. Food and drinks good but pricey. Lounge chairs needed upgraded. Tables and chairs plentiful with umbrellas.

We did not like the agreement the hotel made with the bar/restaurant you had to purchase something every day at the bar/restaurant to have access near the pool and beach area! This would be illegal here in the U.S. I think It's very tacky. The WiFi we used was associated with the bar/restaurant, we had to purchase something every day or we didn't have anywhere to go online except the very small lobby which was the location of the hotel's WiFi. I understand this hotel is mainly for divers and maybe they don't care about their bar bill or WiFi or the pool area but we are travelers and we do care. I would not recommend this hotel. We told them we had ants in the room and nothing was done to eliminate them. We saw a number of large cockroaches and their answer was to step on them! This hotel has a good location but so does many other nice hotels in the area, we will start trying some new ones near downtown. Taxi's are very high to get to the good beaches like Paradise, it was about $20.00 each way. We will not be going back to Cozumel for quite some time, people were generally nothing like they used to be, helpful, kind, etc. Almost everyone seemed greedy and rude this trip, very disappointing. Before I left the hotel manager asked if I left a tip for the maid, I have never had this before, that's up to the individual however I do always tip the maid because they are low paid. We did try out the buses and really enjoyed the city tour they provided, when you can take it bus, it's 8 pesos!

We've been staying at hotel Barracuda since 1990. It is Clean, comfortable and right on the water. Best dive shop on the island, Dive Paradise, has a shop in the building and boats pick up divers on the dock at the hotel. Swim up bar and restaurant. Clean pool. Gregorio and Juan at the front desk are great!

This hotel is not big on luxury, but then the price reflects that idea. All rooms have a beautiful ocean view, the hotel is located close to nice restaurants within walking distance, scheduling activities is easy, and there is a large grocery store right across the street. Money exchange is also within walking distance. My fiancé and I would return again.

Had a peeping Tom in our original room, hotel took care of us. Upgraded to a beach front room, happy with that. No Name bar pretty much controls pool area, we bring an ice chest and spend our days in the sun. Bar would only allow us to stay in certain area, I paid my money, one would think you could sit anywhere on hotel property. Not the case, stayed several times, but this was the last....would not recommend.

Close to down town, not a lot to the place your basic room
