About Blue Angel Resort Cozumel
The Blue Angel Resort brings total dive convenience to Cozumel - dive, eat and sleep in this charming resort complex with on site dive club. Roll out of bed and onto the dive boat, from which you can explore the world famous reefs and drift dives of Cozumel. Forget the stresses and strains of modern life and let this experienced team introduce you to the slower pace of island life. Blue Angel resort has been designed by divers for divers. There are only just over 20 rooms, with twin or double options. Each of the rooms has all the mod cons you would expect for your comfort - air con, en suite and most importantly plenty of wet and dry hanging space for your dive kit! Every room has an ocean view with either private balcony or sea view. The bar and restaurant are the main hub for life after diving here. The food is freshly prepared for you - make sure you try the house spicy sauce and green tomato chilaquiles! Most evenings there is live music. Just grab a sundowner and watch the sunset over the water. You are only a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Cozumel's downtown area, and the team are only too happy to make restaurant recommendations if you want to venture out. Blue Angel strives to be your home away from home on Cozumel and it is this attention to detail that keeps customers coming back year after year.
