The 3 of us were here from Oct. 26 to Nov. 3, 2007. The 2nd time for Heather and the first time for us. It was WONDERFUL. A few rainy times,but mostly sunny. Your staff were so nice and friendly all the time, I wanted to take them all home with us. The food was good and the dinners were always presented so nice. The group we were with also had great diving. It was the best vacation. It was sad to leave, but we will be back. Thanks for everything. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to ALL of you. Erich, Pauline and Heather.

We just got back from a week at SCC and it was amazing. I always looked forward to breakfast and I loved the french toast. Then I packed my gear at the dive lockers (which were really helpful) and boarded the Reef Star. The crew was so helpful and helped me if my stuff was too heavy (which was pretty much every day). Then our divemaster Ariel took us to two awesome sites. Then we'd get back and have a yummy lunch. The salsa was amazing-it was so fresh. Then I could relax or go on an afternoon boat dive. Then we had dinner, which was always so good. I think I gained a few pounds from the coconut ice cream alone. The food was so good; it was the best hotel food I've had. Then I'd hang out with my dive buddies on the pier or the roof and we would talk to Lupe the security guard. What I'm saying is that I had an amazing time. The wait staff was so nice and remembered our room numbers. I was really sad when we had to leave. I would to back to SCC in a heartbeat!!!

Another great week of diving at Scuba Club. Saw so many nurse sharks on Cedral we lost count. Had a couple of new divers with me and they were very impressed with the dive operation, boat crews and staff. Introduced 5 new people to Scuba Club and they will all be returning. See you in January.

I visited SCC Oct. 20 - 27th, 2007. This was my 5th stay at SCC and the diving & staff were excellent as usual. This is still the best deal in the Caribbean! Only one area for improvement; the daily specials in the Fat Grouper didn't seem to be as outstanding as usual.

Spent from October 13 to October 20, 2007 at one of my favorite dive resorts -- Scuba Club Cozumel. This was my sixth visit -- each visit has been GREAT. Diving is superb, boat staff very attentive, dining room staff efficient and delightful. Rooms and service are exquisite.

Time, plus pleasure, gives me this great opportunity to address these few lines of thanks to all of you at Scuba Club Cozumel. Thank you VERY MUCH for a wonderful vacation and dive experience! The employees, at your Club, are polite, warm, caring & like to have Fun! Arrived in Cozumel Sept. 15th, returned home Sept. 22nd 2007. This was my 1st time visiting Scuba Club Cozumel. The scuba club I am a member of back home, "The Sea Duecers" have been coming here for approx. 15 years & are all very experienced divers. Prior to this trip, completed my PADI Open Water certification in 2005 & had completed only a total of 10 dives in my life. Master Scuba Diver Instructor Trainer RAYMUNDO taught and coached me through the Advanced Open Water course. His professionalism, intelligence, ability to speak English, patience, understanding, communication skills, politeness, sense of humor & leadership skills are greatly appreciated! I commend his teaching ability and excellence in customer service! The team on our boat, GEISER, EDWARDO, PAULO & the rest of the crew were GREAT! I apologize for not knowing all of your names. Lo Siento. I believe we were on the Coral Reef boat and EVERYONE was of great assistance. I had lost my camera during the last dive for the day & the entire crew went the next morning & found the location where my camera was lost. Tony, another Sea Duecers club member found my camera! This was a miracle! Muchas Gracias! The food was superb! MARIO, EDGAR & their staff did an excellent job in making my dining experiences enjoyable. Thanks to all of you for making me feel part of your Scuba Club Cozumel family! I will definitely be back to see all of you!
Mucho Gusto! Muchas Gracias! Sincerely,

We just returned from a great week at SCC. We have been going to SCC since 1992 and I have to say it is so amazing to return each time to the same amazing place. It is such a delight to see the familiar faces who are always so helpful. I hope to see you again soon. Thank you again.

I was diver with the Midwest Scuba Dive shop (St. Louis, Missouri) staying at your resort from September 22-29, 2007. It was my first time diving in salt water as a certified diver. It was also my first time to boat dive, and the first time at your resort. I feel that the experience created by your friendly and professional staff will be hard to surpass. Estoy muy agradecida con Miquel, el dive master, y los ayudantes del barco (Martin, Carlos, y Pepe) Todo estaba perfecto! Me la pase muy bien en el cuarto, la comida y seleccion de vegetables era excellente. Los meseros eran muy attentos. (Gracias Miquel and Saul from the staff in the restaurant..y Barbara and Mario). Muchas, muchas Gracias!!! Senora Paula-room #58

As always being at Scuba Club is GREAT!! The diving was awesome as usual, but having Raymundo back as our divemaster made every day truly special. Can't wait to return.

I just returned from a fantastic vacation at the Scuba Club Cozumel. It's been nearly 15 years since I was at this same location previously named Galapagos Inn. It was just as I remembered, convenient, friendly, and meals that offered local cuisine and variety of local spices. No other resort offers COMPLETE services for a diver. A restaurant less than 50 yards from your room, a dock less than 100 yards and the ONLY 5 star Padi facility on the island makes for a comfortable and confident destination. Though the rooms do NOT offer the same ammenities as a 4 star hotel room, the simple, clean, tiled floored rooms are more than adequate. This is a divers destination. From the front desk to the waiters, the entire staff was friendly and personable. Norma, Isabel and Mariam were great in arranging massages and a trip to Chichen Itza. Thanks for a memorable vacation.

SCC proved to be a great choice for us with our teenage boys. The divemasters were able to evaluate our varying experience an take us on safe and fun dives. We were in a small group all week. The food was good and plentiful and even filled up two large teenage boys. The staff was friendly and helpful. Someone even got our bags from the airport because of an airline goof up. SCC is a great place to relax and dive, dive, dive!
Childress, Texas USA - Tuesday, July 31, 2007 at 23:13:10 (PDT)
My husband and I decided Scuba Club would be a good place to take our 10 year old daughter for her open water check out dives. What a great choice we made. We brought along our Dive Instructor but Raymundo A. was a great help. He pointed out lots of marine life for our daughter to see. While at Scuba Club our daughter made 12 dives. 5 boat dives including the wreck C-53, she a I stayed around 40 ft while everyone else pentraited the wreck. We saw plenty of marine life outside the wreck. We did several night dives just off the dock at the resort and saw lots of Octopus and even Squid. We look forward to our next stay a Scuba Club.

Thanks!! for one more great week, number 16 with the crew from Chico State Uni. We made every effort to win in our annual Basketball game, and lost. Both Wanda and I just got back from diving in the Red Sea, we should have stayed at Scuba Club. Thanks to the great team at Scuba club, we have never found a better place to stay and dive. Thanks to Tim, and the dive masters, Geiser Melendez, Grandfather Martin Vera, and Miguel (Mike) Blanco, who are the best we have dived with around the world, You can request them, except June 7th through 14th 2008, they are taken. The Boat Crew of Captain Henry, and Manuel Tzuc and Feliciano ( Reef Cat) are Superior. Sophie and her team are great, Thanks. Mario and the Meal teams, Except for Francisco (cheap shot in basketball) are with out question the very best. Until next year. Wanda and Larry

This was my first experience with Scuba Club. My wife is a non-diver, but still she enjoyed herself. On off days, I would recommend a trip to town - it is a short walk for shopping. It is so convenient to have the diving right there at the resort. Even with such a small island, you want to spend your time diving, and when your not diving - then you should be eating or resting/off gassing for the next dive. You would not be able to do that as well if you spent most of your time in taxis being taken back to your "other" place. The sunsets are spectacular here, and if you need anything, all you have to do is ask. I will definitely be back - hopefully soon.
Colorado Springs, Colorado USA - Monday, June 11, 2007 at 13:12:18 (PDT)
It is hard to believe that we had not been back to our SCUBA CLUB Home for four years!!! It was great to return and find all of our friends still working there!! From the front desk to the chambermaids, the restaurant staff and the dive staff - we were welcomed back with open arms. And the hammocks - we ate early so that we could relax in the hammocks after dinner and watch the night divers lights under the water. As I told Sophia and Mario when we had to leave for our Florida home - "it was great to come home again!" We look forward to returning soon. (But next time I am planning to be able to speak Espanol!)
Lehigh Acres, FL USA - Monday, May 28, 2007 at 07:09:25 (PDT)
We just returned from Scuba Club, and I have to say it was an amazing experience!!!! I did my Open Water Certification with Raymundo the first 2 days and the rest was spent night diving, shore diving and boat diving. I am officially an addict. Raymundo was wonderful! He was the divemaster on several of my dives and he made diving a great experience. We also meet some great dive buddies that we plan on diving with in the future. But the best part was Keith proposed to me underwater on our last dive of the trip. Raymundo and all of our dive buddies, "The Yes Dear Dive Club," was present and that made it even better. What great people to share a special moment with. The whole experince at Scuba Club was incredible!!!! We will definately be back and tell everyone about it. Scuba Club is the best!

We're coming down next month for our 12th trip. After reading all the comments, it sounds like everything has recovered nicely from the hurricane. SCC has always taken excellent care of Arizona Scuba Shack. If you're there too, say hi to us.
Yuma, AZ USA - Friday, April 20, 2007 at 10:14:56 (PDT)
We spent our honeymoon diving, dining and relaxing. The dives are like living in a Discovery Channel program. The views are out of a travel brochure. The food is superb and the staff impeccable. Chocky and Alberto are both good 'finders' on the reefs for turtles, rays, etc. This was relaxation and beauty combined to make a perfect week. We're already planning our next trip back. This is a magnificent destination!
Salem, OR USA - Sunday, March 18, 2007 at 22:29:51 (PDT)
Where does a dive store owner go for his personal dive vacation? Why Scuba Club of course! My wife Linda and I wanted a relaxed, no hassle, vacation with great diving, so we chose Scuba Club, a resort we have taken dive groups to for over 15 years. Great resort, great staff, great food and great diving are the reasons why Scuba Club consistently ranks as one of the CaribbeanÌs top dive resorts.
Midland, MI USA - Wednesday, February 21, 2007 at 14:51:51 (PST)
Sitting here watching the snow and feeling sorry for myself because I will have to miss Carnivale for the first time in many years. Scuba Club is like my second home and for the past 18 years I have been able to dive with all the fantastic dive masters two to four weeks a year. Tell "Willie" I will be down in April for sure. Scuba Club is the BEST. No other dive resort comes close in comparison.
Lake Ozark, MO USA - Wednesday, February 21, 2007 at 14:50:28 (PST)

We just returned from a wonderful week at Scuba Club Jan 12-19, 2007. When I researched places to go, and read all of the positive comments about this place, I have to tell you, I was doubtful. But they are all true! The dive operations were very professional and exceptionally well organized. Carla, Eduardo, and Polo on the Coral Diver were all wonderful and by the end of the week Scuba Club really felt like home. The resort is kept very clean and each room has it's own style. The fountains, sculptures and tile work throughout the resort add a wonderful Mexican charm to the stucco buildings. The food was delicious and plenitful. The staff always had a Hola or a Buenos Dias as they passed you in the resort. The Scuba Club is conveniently located a 3 block walk from a grocery store and a 15 minute walk or 3 minute taxi ride from town. This resort is all about diving. We will definately return!

My son and a buddy of mine stayed at SCC Jan4-11. The room was great, the food was above average, and the dive staff was unbelievable. If you go try to dive with Carla or Nestor, they are the best Divemasters on the resort. The shore diving was very nice and there is lots of life right out front for and afternoon dive or a night dive. My only complaint was that the pillows were a bit hard but next time I will bring my own. SCC is a class A resort and I will be going back this year and for many years to come. I dove the C-53 wreck which was a nice dive, but I will probably wait to dive it again for a couple years as the wreck is still young and hasn't had a lot of time to team with life, but it was a nice dive. Thanks Scuba Club Cozumel for making our vacation a memorable one.

What an excellent vacation. My wife and I stayed from Dec. 26 to Jan 1 and had a blast. This was our first diving vacation and it was everything we could hope for and more. We will be back again and agian. This was my wifes first chance to dive since getting certified in July 2006. The divestaff was great our divemaster was Francisco and he was always checking to make sure everything was okay. The boat crew (Coral Diver) was excellent on making sure everything was ready to go, getting us out of the water and getting us ready for the next dive. There is plenty to see, tons of fish, turtles, spotted eagle rays, nurse sharks and beautiful coral. The hotel was very comfortable and the staff was great. We didn't have to ask for anything. The food was good and there was plenty to eat. Town was a short walk and there was plenty to see and do. There is also a supermarket only a few blocks from the hotel to pick-up any munchies you need. All-in-all it was one of the best vacations we had ever been on and we will be back again and again. We won't stay anyplace else.

Our family of 5 (3 kids in their 20's) stayed at SCC 26-31 Dec 06. 3 kids had new openwater quals, Dad was more experienced, Mom was a non-diver. Vacation was fantastic, in 3 days of diving we saw 6 different reefs plus went on a wreck/night dive. All dive shop and boat crews were great. Dad was a beginner on the underwater camera but got great photos. Staff at SCC were excellent as was the food. Dinner dress was casual but table, meals and service was formal and excellent.Wireless connection was perfect.Easy 15 minute walk to town (or $5 taxi) Take small denomination notes, dollars taken everywhere. Little/no need for pesos.There is a supermarket close to SCC and rooms have fridges. Purified water is available in the corridors and safe ice can be picked up from the bar. We experienced no health problems.
Our last day we went on a ferry/bus tour to Chichen Itza. We booked this before we went.It is a long day starting with the 7am ferry, coming back on the 9pm ferry. It was very worthwhile and included visits to a waterhole (take swimsuit), a lovely colonial town,great buffet lunch and ample time at Chichen Itza. This was much cheaper than the flying version Chichen Itza tour and gave us time on the bus to get background history from our fluent guide.
All in all we had a perfect diving vacation and will definitely return to SCC.
A last note. Mom stupidly left her laptop lying around. Another guest gave it to the front desk staff and they got it back to me. All the staff were very friendly as well as efficient.
USA - Monday, January 08, 2007 at 08:28:26 (PST)
This has been the best dive vacation that I could imagine. Everything from the diving to the accomodations, dining, boatcrews and the divemasters and their expertise - all exceeded expectations! Divemaster Alberto went FAR out of his way to show us the best diving in Cozumel. Everything from wrecks to night diving to unreal wildlife (Eagle rays, eels, turtles, nurse sharks, batfish, octopus, etc) - he knows where it all is. Devil's Throat (Punta Sur Reef) at 130 feet is not to missed! Plan to return again next year :)
