Comments The Blue Angel dive operation was just incredible, I would use them again without hesitation. They accommodated the type of dives we wanted to do and let everyone dive their own profile. I honestly can think of one negative about their operation. On the other hand, Hotel Cozumel wasn't all that wonderful. The hotel itself was very nice and clean; however, the service was not that good. The outside bars ran out of beer and food and the staff made little to no effort to correct these type of problems. And when there was food, it wasn't all that great either - even when they tried to put on a show at the oceanside restaurant. For the right price, I would stay with them again - but I would plan to eat dinner in town if I was wanting a good meal.
