This hotel has GREAT location, however, I will not stay here again. The Hotel Barracuda is infested with Cockroaches. The solution is to provide you with a can of roach spray at the front desk. The window unit AC in the room is so loud, you cannot hear your 19" tv. The mattress is thinner than your pillows and broke down to the point you can feel each and every spring as they contract until your full body weight comes to a rest on the wooden platform under the mattress. Towels appear as though they may have been white 15 years ago, water in the sink was brown, but has more pressure than your shower. I was grateful for the bar next door as their drinks were desperately needed for liquid courage to go back up to the room at the end of the day.

We are a new administration and unfortunately we have problems that had not been solved before, we just started with a fugitive program to be able to provide a better service. regards

We rented 3 rooms for a 3 night stay. I don't know what type of bugs that hotel has, but everyone in our group was bit up really bad. We all had so many bites on our entire body -- and I caught the pink eye. The restaurant/pool staff harassed us the entire time we sat at the pool and also tried to charge us more on our check than our totals actually were. Aside from all of that, the ocean views were nice.

Location is the only good thing.

Pros: The location and the price
Cons: Coffee makers in room, bigger better towels. The hotel does not have kitchens in all rooms. Only 2 that are booked for months at a time by snowbirds
Location: Everything downtown is within walking distance. There is an ex pat bar that was fun where a bunch of Americans hung out.
We wanted to stay right downtown so that is what we did. The hotel had no amenities. No coffee in the room even. The best part was right across the street from Mega store- like a Costco or Walmart type. If you are just looking for a cheap place in a great location, this will do. If you want a little more, I think the other places outside of downtown would be more comfortable. We could walk to the ferry and many restuarants downtown so that part was great. The No Name Bar there is a hangout for cruise ship crews. They were a fun group.

Faily quiete and relaxing

Cons: The beds are soft and a ltttle warn.
Location: Good snorkeling, touristy city, many Americans, some to be avoided.
The room is nothing special, but clean and comfortable enough, with a man made beach on the ocean. Many rooms have a good view of the ocean and a patio or balcony. It is convenient to do a snorkeling tour and quiet enough to relax. Staff is friendly and helpful.
