My Husband, Mother, family friend and I just got back from a wonderful time at Scuba Club. 12/19 to 12/27. This is the first time we have spent Xmas and our anniversary away from the states. Wonderful decorations, great traditional Turkey dinner to make Xmas special. Sofia is the best. She went out of her way to help make our 10th anniversary special. Dives were great. Miguel is a really detailed divemaster, and always has something to point out. Lots of turtles. Wait staff is always attentive and friendly. Rooms are super clean, and the grounds immaculate. We met some very nice people, and are already planning our next trip.

SCC is awesome! I had so much fun with everyone at SCC I can't wait for my return. Morning dives on Reef Star with Miguel were fantastic!! I am going to bring a lot of my friends back along with me so they can experience the greatness and comfort of SCC that they showed us..You cant beat the fun diving at SCC. I Love SCC @ thank you Tom for the hook-up. Love and Peace.

I was at SCC 11/19-29. Being certified this year, and traveling alone, I made the best decision by staying at SCC. I saw nurse sharks, huge turtles, lobsters, so many different colored fish, I could just go on and on about the diving and the warm and clear tropical water. Dive masters Ariel and Alberto are just the best, along with Felix, Budha, Martin, Ray, all at the dive shop. I learned so much from Ariel and Alberto. Mario (and Tomas, Miguel, Francisco, just to name a few) at the restaurant made sure we were all fed very well...I miss the coconut ice cream especially. The housekeeper for my room #2 even made me little turtles with towels and flower petals one day. The girls at the front desk were always helpful, and security was top notch. Having no phones or TVs in the guest rooms was great. There was no stress whatsoever...just great diving, great people, great food. Tim, you have a great hotel and even greater people. I felt like I was leaving family when I had to leave to come home. This was my first trip to SCC, and I can't wait to come back.

Another fine dive trip to SCC. 4th year in a row and plans again for next year. As usual the Divemasters & boat crews made the diving great. All the wait staff made the shore time great. SCC is the dive destination for all serious scuba divers who want top notch service and an enjoyable experience in Cozumel. Thanks Again, see you in 2010.

Wonderful diving, saw incredible creatures and very large ones at that! Exquisite dining at every meal! Very good dive operation - Dove off the Dive Cat - great crew and dive master - Ariel - was always pointing out things we would have missed in the currents. Thank you for a great week!

Our family has been going to Scuba Club Cozumel for twenty years. We have spent Christmas there many times. Celebrated many birthdays and consider the club as our home in Mexico. One of our daughters was married there two years ago. It was lovely. The staff and all personnel have become friends, and we have all aged together. The diving has always been great, safe and fun.The food and service have always been a little better every visit, with small incremental improvements over the years. It is the best land based diving experience we have encountered since we began diving in the early 70's. We will continue to make it our family reunion location for a long time to come.

14 times to this great Island, the last 10 times to SCC. Our annual trip always brings back those die hards and introduces several newbies to this great place. SCC is the best for the buck. Fantastic reef and wall dives, great staff, great food, great rooms, great boats, Tim runs a great dive shop. Easy dives right in front. No trouble with the wireless. But be careful, after staying here you might be disappointed with other resorts.

I would like to just add that my company East Coast Diver LLC in Hagerstown Maryland make an annual trip to stay at and dive with SCUBA Club Cozumel. We absolutely love the staff and have never had a bad experience. This operation is top notch and our annual line up of trips wouldn't be complete without a trip to Cozumel diving with SCUBA Club! Please visit our photo gallery on and see our past trips to SCUBA Club. Thanks Guys, Gary

My wife and I just got back from a week at the Scuba Club. We give it our wholehearted recommendation. The diving was first rate; thanks to Ariel our Dive Master, and to Ray and Budha for all the help on the boats. You will need more weight by the end of the week because they feed you so well. Make a point of doing the shore dive they nickname "Taxi Dive" where you take a taxi down to the light house, get in and drift back to the hotel- about an hour dive and although its mostly a rock bottom there is no shortage of wildlife to see. On a final note- we made some great friends there and hope to see them again at the Scuba Club!

We're coming back and we're bringing the entire family! This was an amazing place specifically suited for divers. We've never had such an incredible diving experience - the entire place was so welcoming and friendly. No matter how much diving experience you've had, this place will not disappoint. We've already made our New Years' Reservations!

Greensburg, PA USA - Monday, September 21, 2009 at 13:51:26 (PDT)

I don't believe we've ever had such a fantastic dive trip. The service both IN and OUT of the water was incredible. The restaurant staff, Mario the Maitre'd, Francisco, the best waiter ever, the housekeeping staff, and our divemaster Jesus, were fabulous and we were treated impeccably. The rooms were beautiful - we were right on the beach and steps away from everything you could ever want. If we weren't out on the dive boats, we were diving right off the docks at the hotel. The aquatic life was wonderful right outside our door - especially at night. We just can't say enough about this place! If you're an avid diver, you HAVE to stay at Scuba Club Cozumel!

Two weeks after we came back from SCC (our second time) and we are already planning our next visit to this wonderful, well organized, no nonsense diving resort. We enjoyed support of a great boat crew on the Reef Star (Martin, Carlito and Pedro) during our dives and for the second time had a pleasure to have Alberto Zetina as our divemaster (highly recommended). Also thanks to another divemaster, Nestor Sansores, who helped with my stuck pressure gage on one of our dives. Special thanks to entire kitchen and restaurant staff. We enjoyed all the meals and service was always excellent. Loved the fiesta night menu! Thank you guys!

Scuba Club Cozumel is awesome!!! Out first trip to dive Cozumel and there is no doubt we will be back. Scuba Club was a marvelous place to stay, no reason to go anywhere else. Our Dive Master Luis was terrific and he was great at giving us dive tips to make us better at the sport and we really appreciated his time and caring. The wait staff was fun and attentive and the food was really, really, good..We never had a bad dive day.. We can't wait to go back..

First of all, SCUBA CLUB COZUMEL is a beautiful resort and second, the staff is loving, caring, and they made me feel at home. I would like to Thank Jesus (Divemaster) and the boat crew from the Coral Diver for the support and assistance. Also, Fransico (waiter) in taking care of us with a great sense of humor. Special Thanks to Jesus (grounds keeper) who was always very courteous and hospitable. I give the resort two thumbs up. See you Scuba Club Cozumel next year for my 40th birthday.

WOW! This was a totally enjoyable experience. The diving was great with very good attention from the boat crew and a divemaster that was the best I\'ve had the pleasure of diving with. The food was terrific with good variety and very tasty as well. I will definitely come back with my wife as I know she will love it as I did.. I especially like the fact that you can dive right in front of the hotel and for my wife that will make all the difference. Thanks for a good time and a tremendous value.

May 22nd thru the 30th 2009. Nine days in heaven. What can I say...I know. SCC is Awesome. I have stayed on the island
more than a dozen times. I have stayed in high end as well as the low. This place rocks them all. For the diver it don't get no better than this. Stepping thru the front gates was like a breath of fresh air. There was a pretty large group of us and everyone was taken care of very well. We dove the Dive Cat with Manuel all week. Manuel is an excellent Divemaster always helpful and a hell of a critter Hunter. The food was very good and the diving Fantastic. I am already trying to set my return trip and it will definitely be at SCC. Sophia I will let you no when to get room 36 ready. Thank you all so much for a wonderful stay.

Garland, TX USA - Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 12:51:40 (PDT)

Wow! What a fantastic trip! My wife and I experienced the 5 night (no dinner) package and loved every minute of it. We never dove Cozumel before, but it rocks! Drift diving is awesome as you don't expend much energy; and the fish, coral, and visibility were first class. Divemasters Ariel (and Francisco) were great and Buhdha was very enoyable. The rooms were nice with good views, and the breakfasts and lunches were very good. The rental equipment was also very good. I think we were the only 1st timers at the resort -- good people. Bring a lock for the lockers and take advantage of the diving in front of the resort (day and night). Dinner recommendations include Prima, Lobster House, and La Choza. We flew into Cancun, rented a car, took the ferry over, then afterwards went to Tulum (beach, ruins and cave diving) and then Chichen Itza (Mayaland bungalows). No swine flu, nor drug cartels, just good service, great deals and a lot of fun.

Wow! What can I say. I was part of a 26 diver group and what a great time. Scuba Club Cozumel really makes it easy to have a great time. The diving was fantastic (thanks to our Divemaster Choke and the great boat crew on the Reef Star) and I could not get enough. The rooms were great, the food fantastic and laughs lasted all night (thanks Mario for the Live Chicken). I'm trying to see if we can come back next month (no more late night pool outings I promise). Best vacation I have ever had. Thanks.

Last week was my 5th stay at SCC and it was actually my best. I never tire of the spectacular diving, great facility and great food. Compliments to the new cook. I didn't think things could get any better at SCC, but it seems they have. William gave my wife Viorica an intro to scuba course and shore dive and she absolutely loved it. We will be back at Xmas to get her certified.

Scuba Club Cozumel was paradise for our group of 25 divers who visited during April 11 through 18 of 2009. The hotel accommodations were great, the food was great, the people at the hotel were great, and the diving was splendid. I can hardly wait to return there again, making this an annual ritual of diving, or even sooner! Many thanks to everyone who works at the hotel, in the restaurants, at the dive center, and on the boats.

To the dive masters that made sure everyone in the dive group was having a good dive and the people that carried the tanks back and forth and filled them, thank you.And last but not least thank you norma for all your help and advice and scheduling the scooter for me.

Spent 14 days there March 31 - April 14th. This was our second trip but 7 years apart. What wonderful staff they have and the food is excellent, but plan on gaining a few pounds. The serving portions are large and the desserts too good to pass up. Shout outs to Saul, Tomas and Alberto, for the great service. We really could not tell any difference in the hotel. Everything is kept in excellent condition and the grounds are peaceful. You would never know there was a bustling town just outside the gate and down the road a piece. Enjoy!

Touchet, WA USA - Friday, April 17, 2009 at 12:55:06 (PDT)

My first trip to Cozumel. Did 5 days of 2-tank dives, plus C-53 wreck dive and the twilight/night dive combo; two shore dives (one night, one twilight). Divemasters and crew were very helpful. Wind was too strong to go out the 6th day, but I enjoyed walking into town and window-shopping. Meals were great--I gained a few pounds! Worked some of it off climbing up and down to our penthouse (4th floor) room. Housekeeping and restaurant staff were excellent. I'd recommend it to other divers and plan to come again in the next few years.

To all the staff of SCC - THANK YOU! We stayed with you for the last two weeks in January 09. This was our second of many more trips. Last year we stayed for one week and decided on the plane home that one week was just not long enough. We were able to get to know your wonderful staff better and it made the trip even more enjoyable. A special Thanks to Mario and Tomas, the beach parties were really fun. We decided to take a trip to Chichen Itza. We asked at the front desk and they set the whole trip up for us, it was a flawless trip. It was, however, a very long day (14 hours) but very worth it. Bring swim suit and towel so you can swim in the cenote, you will be thankful you did. Even though we experienced some less-then-ideal weather, one day got canceled because of wind, the diving was still great. Drift, walls, deep, night, wreck, it's all here at SCC.

To the dive staff: Thank you, you were all wonderful. You were all able to make every dive special in some way from sharks to rays, large free swimming morays to the tiniest spotted drum we ever saw. We had a dive vacation we will never forget. Thank you again,

Scuba Club Cozumel has been delivered a consistent and pleasurable experience for our family since 1994. We love the warmth provided by the staff and the food and accommodations are great... particularly for the price. A true Mexican experience that feels authentic vs the alternative. We highly recommend the Club.

We were very impressed in SCC. This place was new to us and we did not know what to expect. WOW!! We had a great time and loved the food. Having breakfast ready for us before we go was great and having lunch ready when we came back was the best thing because we were soooo hungry! Not having to look for places to eat was the way to go. At dinner time we were tired from a long day of diving and all we had to do is sit down at your table. For anyone who loves ice cream you have to try the coconut ice cream OH MY GOSH! IT IS AWESOME!!!! Carla was a great guide and she has a friendly manner to her but she is business. She knew just where to look and go. The web cam was a great idea not only for people to see SCC but for family and children back at home to see you while you are gone!! The only thing I wish we had was a TV. If anyone has kids or someone who is not diving then they have something to watch in the comfort of their rooms. And that's the only thing that was wrong! Thanks for everything there. Y'all made it special for us.

Another great trip to Scuba Club Cozumel. Last week of January. Sophia, you are the best, Mario, the food is great, and to al the divemasters, you are the best with clean safe boats, and safe diving. great reefs too. The rooms are clean and well kept. Just love the hammocks also.
Hope to see you again in June for my 11th trip.

Miami, FL USA - Monday, March 02, 2009 at 18:05:49 (PST)

My wife and just returned from a week's stay with you and your staff at Scuba Club (Feb. 19 - Feb. 26 in room 36). As with our past stays, we had a great time. You folks truly make us feel like we're coming to our vacation home in Cozumel. That starts with Sofia welcoming us home again, and it just continues from there. Everyone one of your crew are so personable, friendly, and professional. Sofia was able to get us into the room we had requested in our reservation. While I do understand that that has a lot to do with booking needs, it was a very special treat for us. We especially enjoy having one of the rooms that face the ocean near the restaurant and having that request met was, again, great.

We have come to feel that many of your staff are in fact friends. Thomas, Fransisco, Alberto, & Miguel are among those who seem to always go the extra mile to make our stay special.

The group at S.C.U.B.A. Cozumel are also top notch. Compared to the dive operations I've experienced in my travels, they are one of the best. They are professional, friendly and consistent in their adherence to safe diving. I like that they are careful to group diver by experience level and then with a compatible dive master. This make for safe and fun dive for all. Great job!

This was our first trip there for Carnaval. Wow, what a treat. Thank you so much for arranging the three groups of dancer who performed in front of the resort during the week. Who would have guessed there were so many talented and dedicated kids on the island? Also the special entertainment held inside the resort for Festival night was a special surprise. Raymundo & the office staff were really great. My wife enjoyed taking part in Raymundo's dance lesson. And is Carolina cute or what?

In closing, again, thanks so much for the place, staff and entire experience you all provide to your guests. That's what makes you stand out from all the other resorts on the island. Thanks so much & we'll see you again soon.

This was my first stay at Scuba Club Cozumel and my first time attending Bonnie Pelnar's Photo Workshop. All I can say is that the whole experience was FANTASTIC! The hotel staffÝat SCC was very attentive and each staff memberÝwent out of their way to make our vacation as enjoyable as possible. TheirÝdive crew wasÝvery safety-conscious and their DM's did a great job of pointing out unusual critters on each dive. The restaurant staff offered service with a smile and the food served was delicious and plentiful. The 'frosting on the cake' was being able to attend Bonnie's photo workshopÝduringÝour stay at the resort. Her classes were very informative with lots of opportunities for asking questions and gaining feedback. I learned important things about photo composition and using Photoshop that I didn't previously know. In addition to the group presentations offered byÝBonnie, sheÝmet personally with each attendee to offer advice and helpful tips about their images. The photo contest that's held during the workshop helps to get everyoneÝmotivated to put knowledge into practice. I offer two thumbs up for the Scuba Club Cozumel Resort and Bonnie Pelnar's Photo Workshop!

I really enjoyed my stay at SCC. Both the diving and hotel staff were very professional and efficient as well as very nice. The diving was superb. I also enjoyed the photo seminars by Bonnie. I think that was one of the highlights of my vacation. Please ask Geiser to email me the name of the materials he uses for making fly fishing baits! Thanks, Oscar

Bonnie Pelnar's workshop at SCC was fun and educational, with just the right dash of irreverence. It got me past the newbie jitters with an underwater camera. The SCC staff was friendly and helpful, and the housekeeping staff has a towel-artist par excellence, leaving towel sculptures of a swan, turtle and whale on our freshly-made bed. We loved the Reef Cat boat, and the divemasters were skilled and knowledgeable. To top it off, the food was good.

Troy and myself just returned from another wonderful trip at Scuba Club Cozumel. We went just to attend a photo workshop with Bonnie Pelnar. This is our second Photo Workshop at Scuba Club. What an awesome time we had. Bonnie is great and the dive buddies you meet are wonderful. Crew, Restaurant, Staff, Dive Boats, everything was wonderful. Looking forward to returning to Scuba Club Cozumel as soon as we can. The web cam is on my home page so I usually look at it at least once a day. Bonnie's workshop is a great addition to your experience at Scuba Club! We had a ball!

The diving was great! I explored the wreck and saw the largest Moray Eel ever! I also did the Devils Throat at about 124 feet and the Church, and many other dive sites during my 5 day visit including Santa Rosa Wall. The food was excellent and the dive master and the Coral Diver 6 pack Boat and crew were excellent! I enjoyed every aspect of the diving and hotel at Scuba Club. This was my very 1st time at your establishment. I will return in the future. Thanks for a wonderful scuba adventure!
