Basic rooms, which were pleasant to stay in. The AC worked great. Beautiful view off our balcony. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The bar in the pool area is FANTASTIC! Fun group! We were there in the off season, so it was quiet and there were plenty of chairs and tables. The Dive shop (Paradise Dive) were friendly and...

Restaurant on quiet beach great location. We sat outside undercover bug tables inside too. Really good selection of fish dishes. Party orders included cod, trout and barramundi. All cooked fresh and beautifully flavoured. Imaginative desserts enjoyed by party. High chairs available and children's menu. Would definitely return.

We stay at the Hotel Barracuda once a year when we go to Cozumel. The location is great and we find the hotel very clean and it meets all our requirements (except this year we got one bed with a sagging mattress). The hotel has a dive shop in building (Dive Paradise) and the dive boats stop there to pick...

After managing to negotiate a reduced rate with an extremely helpful and friendly member of staff at reception, we were delighted to have checked in at this place. We stayed in a lovely room for four with balcony and sea view. The room was spacious, cleaned every day and had sky TV with some English channels. The pool here is...

Stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms are a little dated and they need to change some mattresses. But the room quality was reflected in the cheaper price. Staff are very welcoming and answered any questions we had. Pool area is amazing and if diving there is a shop on sight and a pier to be picked up. Great location...

We used this hotel for our first night stay of a ten day visit to Coz. The bulk of our time was at a condo in the southern end of the island but it was not available until the day AFTER our arrival. Being right across the street from the Mega was a big plus for us. We shopped for...

This is a hotel for Divers. The Pros: Hotel Barracuda has their own pier for the dive boats. You can lounge on your balcony and just wait until it arrives without standing and waiting. Snorkeling right from the Hotel and quite a few fish and newly formed reefs from some of the concrete piers that detached from the shore (Hurricane...

Do not stay here. I've never stayed at a worse hotel. Reasons: 1. Very dirty; hallway and room not swept, with cig butts, had to ask to be swept. 2. Could not provide bottled water even for purchase. 3. "Free wifi" means only in the lobby, which is small and always full of people. 4. Hotel bar wanted to charge...

Interesting little pool and bar attached to the Hotel. Deep water 10 feet deep put in into the ocean. Nice place to spend a few hours on the water without being constantly sold something. Prices are tourist but low end. $30 pesos for A Sol.

4th stay at the Barracuda. Low cost diver's hotel on the water. Dive shop in house. Boats pick you up conveniently from the hotel's private pier. Clean pool. Nice bar with friendly associates. Conveniently located near restaurants, watering holes and shopping.
