Comments Our family has been coming to Scuba Club Cozumel since the early 80's, when it was known as the Galapago Inn. We have spent many family Xmas Holidays here in lieu of presents.
Aside from the predictably nice diving in Cozumel, we have been coming here because it is a bit like coming home. Personel and staff turnover has been almost negilgible,and those who have attended to us both in the Diving realm, as well as the Hotel and restaurant have become friends.
So much so that our youngest daughter, now 33, who was once certified here at age 13, was married at the Hotel on June 9th of this year.
The arrangements, including the minister, mariachi band, flowers , food wedding cake, photographer and decorations made in conjuntion with hotel staff and management were flawless, and the event was one that all 30 of us attending will likely remember as a unique, beatiful and moving one.

The diving part of the trip was also predictably well managed. The reefs of Coz seem to be coming back after hurricane Wilma.
Lots of turtles, a few very large gouper and a nurse shark or two were in evidence.Small critters under and around the rubble in front of the hotel make checking out the gear in shallow water, more fun.
Wireless internet connection is available in and around the hotel, and many of the guests could be seen with their laptops.
All in all, Scuba Club has maintained an excelence reliability and a quality of service hard to find for over 25 years for our family.
