... lost interest in me when it became clear that I wasn't there to spend thousands! Megan and I thought we got the 'witch' to take us around!
We had to wait too long for the van to reappear out front as we watched a torrential downpour that went as fast as it came. When the van never appeared it was arranged for our group ...

Don't worry friends, Katie will be doing he driving. :) Chris and ...

The time had come to finally make the visit to Cozumel, a 45 minute ferry ride away from Playa del Carmen. Rosie and I left the house at 6am in order to make the 8am ferry... ouch. We made it in good time (Playa is about an hour away from Cancun in a little combi van,) and we had set sail for Cozumel.
Sam met us at the port and we went for breakfast at the top of a ...
... First: 2 turtles. Second: if I were to count every single queen triggerfish I have ever seen they would not come close to how many we saw on this dive alone. Third: Mario found an octopus. Fourth: a large nurse shark napping.

We got to see another Hawksbill turtle, schooling barracuda, many large grouper (3-4 feet), lots of lobster

Historical Traveler Reviews Scuba Club Cozumel
We booked a one week trip for 7 people to Scuba Club Cozumel in June 2003. Rooms were kept clean, most food seemed okay. But on our 4th day, 5 of us got food poisoning and couldn't dive for minimum 1 day. The 2 who went diving noted 75% of the regular divers were missing from the boat. The Club refused to allow us to apply credit for missed diving to later days. They suddenly didn't speak English too well when we complained. Definitely wouldn't return.
My boyfriend & I really like SCC after diving with them from 2/22-2/28.
Having never traveled to Mexico and reading some of the reviews on this site I was very nervious about choosing a hotel site unseen. So glad we chose the Scuba Club. The only slightest complaint was that the weather rained for several days ,bad enough for one that the dive boat didn't even go out :-(,,but turned around to make the trip worthwhile.
Scuba Club on top again!!!
I didn't think we could have more fun after our first SCC trip in 2003 but 2004 was tops!! We've been in many resorts and Scuba Club has to be the best. The weather was perfect this year and so was the diving. We hit Palancar 3 times (one of the most famous reef systems in the world) much to our delite. The divemaster made sure that we all had excellent dives and the boat crew really helped those who had difficulties getting in and out. The food was even better this year and we found no reason to "eat out". You just can't beat the value! Thanks everyone and a special thanks to Sofia for being such a wonderful hostess.

We stayed at Scuba Club for a week over New Year's 2004. This was our first trip to Mexico, and we had heard many varying reports of accomodations and diving, so we wanted to find out for ourselves. We found that Scuba Club was a perfect choice for us. The hotel is comfortable and clean, and the staff are very courteous and helpful.
I have been returning here perhaps 30 times over the past 30 years. I love primarily the superior diving, competent guides, the small, quiet, efficeint,authentic hotel, dining rooms, shops, staff. I have stayed at larger, glitzier, Americanized hotels, but found the atmosphere less tranquil and less Mexican, and the diving not nearly as good. Scuba Club Cozumel has a fleet of 5 large luxury boats- to the 100-foot range with multiple levels, fast and efficient. (Many of the large hotels do not have an on-site dive facility, and use small outboard-type rented boats). This is a plaace for dedicated or hard-core divers, not the average tourist. I have dived over the world, and I do consider it world class. If one makes all the dives and also dives off the beach, the quiet pool or a book at an oceanside hammock is a tranquil use of leisure time. I did not miss TV- there is one in the restaurant-bar for football season or the news. No phone in room, but local and long-distance phone in lobby. My beverage bill is usually $10 per week- bottled water with lime and salt. If one felt the need for tequila, there is a little shop down the street where a bottle of good tequila is incredibly cheap. I have always considered this a place of magnificent diving and unparalled peacefullness. The Mexican-Yucatecan food-with lots of fresh fruits and wonderful vegetables, I find excellent also. I almost regret recommending it; it is perfect the way it is.
I stayed at Scuba Club with a small group during the second week of December, 2002. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are spartan but mine was large with a nice balcony. The food was average and the price does not include drinks or tips, which if you follow the guidelines given to you by the hotel, will run around U.S. $150.00 for the week. I visited Cozumel the following January and stayed at another resort and used another dive operation. We went to the same sites but the dive masters at the second shop took us to better parts of the site plus during the surface interval the the second shop shop docked at southern beaches. I stayed for eight nights and my friend stayed for seven. I was charged for two nights at the single occupancy rate and nothing I could say would convince them this made no sense. I can't figure out why Scuba Club is rated one of the top dive resorts in the wrold. I will not return to Scuba Club.
Very Comfortable and Friendly and Cozy
I have stayed at the Galapago Inn twice for 7 days each time.
The employees and dive masters are very friendly and if you chose to inchlude meals with your room price you share dinner with your dive companions and can discuss the days dives. This makes the atmosphere much more friendly as you get to know everyone a little bit and not feel like you are among strangers after divning and dinning together. Rates have gone up though since I was last there.
Of course this is a place for divers and the diving is fantastic.
Excellent Dive Hotel/Dive Center
This was my first trip to Cozumel and I was very impressed with the service not only at the hotel, but the dive operation as well. The staff for both functions were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. The dive sites selected for our group were varied and always interesting. The variety of sealife and the healt of the reefs was phenomenal. The resort made our group of 15 adults and children feel at home. The fact that there are no phones and no tv sets in the rooms was a plus for my wife and I, but it did raise eyebrows with the folks who had kids (electronic babysitters are important these days). I will be surely be going back to this wonderful spot as soon as my vacation fund is replenished.
Best Dive Destination
I've been to the Scuba Club Cozumel twice now in the last two years and their the best. If you want to be treated like family, this is the place. The food is excellent,staff friendly,and the diving is some of the best in the world.I would recommend them to not only beginners but also to long time divers too.
