Comments The hotel Occidental Grand left a lot to be desired. It was advertised as a four star all inclusive. At best it is a three star. AC doesn't work, Dinner buffet very marginal.

However, Pro Dive, the house dive shop, was really good. Very well run, very safety conscious. Free Nitrox. Dove with Andrea, who was from Brazil. Great Dive Guide. They are located in several locations in Cozumel and at Playa Del Carmen. Would definitely dive with them again.
