  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Great location to downtown. On the water. Hotel is old, needs some work. But it is great value for dive trip. Scuba boats from most outfits will pick you up on Barracuda's pier. Not a great place for a pampered wife wanting a romantic vacation.

Close to shopping & scuba diving!!

I stayed here earlier this year & knew I could get on my scuba boat on their dock. It’s across the street from a grocery/department store and just a few blocks from ferry dock from playa del Carmen and downtown. No Wi-Fi in room but in lobby. Refrigerator in room. Great view!!

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

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.

I love the Barracuda because it is close to town, every room is ocean view and the dive boat picks me up from the Barracuda dock. It is not fancy or posh but it works for me. The staff is always nice and helpful. Do not use the kiosk in front of Barracuda for activities or rentals as you can do better with Expedia
