“Good deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

Stayed Fri-Sat Feb. 2012. Three couples. Two couples got room 3rd floor facing street with a nice deck with 2 chairs and an angled view of the ocean. The deck was good for watching the Mardi Gras parade, and drying swim suits/towels. One couple paid same price got room other side of hall, window didn't open and had ugly view of mechanical pipes. Definitely ask for room on street side with deck! Large, clean room, closet, safe, 2 beds, kitchenette w-microwave, fridge. Not a luxury hotel, but for a few nights, everything you need. Easy walk to ferry. Walk 2 blks to sister hotel for a FANTASTIC buffet breakfast--really worth going, and can hang out on luxurious 2nd floor hotel lobby, overlooking main street and great view of ocean. I'd stay at Bahia Suites again, if my goal was to be out and about most of the day.

Room Tip: Pay a few dollars more and reserve a room with a deck and ask for it when you arrive.

Great location for city life & dining out. We are divers so we avoid the all-inclusives preferring a solid breakfast and then dinner out. Bahia offers a great breakfast at it's sister hotel Casa Mexicana (2 blocks away) and there are tons of mom & pops to up scale eateries within walking distance. The Coffee Shop & the Thirsty Cougar are steps away from Bahia's front door and are really good spots. You will quickly become a welcome regular.

Cozumel is a great & safe walking city. And since there are lots of local dive ops that will pick you up on the piers (1-2 blocks away) there is really no need for a car. But on this trip we were diving with Papa's and so we rented a scooter. We got a great deal from Margarita at Isis Rentals and had no problem keeping it parked over night out front at Bahia.

With or without transportation be sure to go to Camarones Dorado on Benito Juarez across from MAPA. No alcohol, but amazing nonetheless. Guido's has been (and remains) our long-time favorite. Also worth a mention is the Sonora Grill and Del Sol. Both are only a short walk from Bahia and the latter is a legit (& terrific) Argentinian restaurant. Very interesting menu.

While Bahia is a great value as is, it could be something really special with just a bit of TLC. It has loads of Old Mexico charm and decor, but lacks chests and drawer space. The shower needs a complete re-mod and in the interim some hooks for drying swim and dive clothes would be nice. Our room was easily large enough for a party of 4 (we were 2), but there is no place to stow clothing except a closet. And that had few hangers and a broken safe. Not good. While our room was clean, getting any linens beyond a single towel or two was by request only. Two more issues: Our room door rattled until I wedged a sandal in it and the door itself had no internal lock or deadbolt. Great examples of little things that make a difference to us.

The Bahia staff were always friendly to very welcoming. I think they care but just need some direction and funds to shape the place up. But in the end, Bahia's location can't be beat (for us) and if we get a good enough deal on out next trip to Cozumel we will consider it. However, it has some tough competition from Casa and several other boutique hotels that are only a block or two away.

We sincerely hope that Suites Bahia ownership heeds this review (& others like it) and invests some vision and pesos into their property. It would be a shame to see a place with such potential go further downhill or close. Cozumel needs Bahia and Bahia just needs to attend to some details.

Did I mention Camrones Dorado?

Room Tip: Divers WILL want a balcony.

We were in Cozumel to dive for a week, so our biggest priorities were value and proximity to a pier where we could meet the dive boat.

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Suites Bahia. The front desk and housekeeping staff were all so nice and helpful. Everything was absolutely spotless and our room was huge. The balcony was well worth the money. The kitchenette with full-sized refrigerator came in really handy for storing big bottles of water, leftovers, and snacks.

As others have said, the breakfast over at Casa Mexicana is wonderful. The food was delicious every day and the staff was really nice.

We're definitely planning to stay at Suites Bahia on our next visit. Great food, great people, great price, and less than a minute from the dive boats. We couldn't ask for anything more.

We stayed at the Bahia for 3 days prior to Carnaval 2012. The hotel came with a kitchenette, make up stand and closet. Clean, convenient, and friendly. The best part was the breakfast that is included, that itself is worth 20$ a day, easy. I will stay there again anytime. The beds are hard, but almost all hotels in MX are.

A view of the ocean, a balcony, well layout spacious room and kitchenette with coffe maker, all for under $100 a nite. Did a mention the fabouls breakfast buffet a short walk away. This has to be the best deal in town. As a bonus the staff really goes out of their way tho be helpful. A dresser in the room was the only other thing I would have wanted.

Room Tip: It worth it spend a little extra for a rm with a balcony.
