Hotel B Unique Cozumel Review: Location
Location Rating: 8/10
Hotel B Unique Cozumel is located on the north end of the island of Cozumel, about 10 minutes north of the Cozumel ferry and downtown San Miguel de Cozumel.
It’s a great choice for those looking for an oceanfront getaway without having to worry about crowds or noise.
The hotel is situated in a quiet area with mainly just other hotels around so there isn’t much within walking distance, but it’s easy enough to take a taxi and the hotel will assist with arranging one.
A taxi will cost you around $100 pesos (~$5 USD) each way from Hotel B Unique to downtown San Miguel de Cozumel or the ferry terminal, making this part of the island easily accessible.
The hotel has a stunning oceanfront location, however this part of the island has a rocky coastline so unfortunately there is no beach at Hotel B Unique.
Despite that, guests can still enjoy the gorgeous oceanfront infinity pool – making it worth staying here despite its lack of sand! Plus, you can still dive into the ocean and snorkel straight from the hotel.
Overall, Hotel B Unique’s location makes it a great base for exploring the rest of the island, while still providing quiet and relaxing atmosphere.
Plus, their sister hotel, Hotel B Cozumel, is right next door should you decide to spend some time in their facilities as well!

Room Rating: 10/10
Hotel B Unique Room Types
Hotel B Unique Cozumel offers 3 different room types:
- Jungle View Grand: This room type has 9 jungle view grand rooms not facing the ocean but rather the Cozumel jungle. These rooms are comfortable and modern with a king-size bed, and come with a balcony and small living area.
- Ocean Front Grand: This upgraded room type features oceanfront rooms with private balconies and incredible views of the Caribbean Sea. Each of the air-conditioned rooms is light and bright and comes with a king-size bed.
- Junior Suite Grand: Hotel B Unique’s largest rooms with the best views, these are large and airy junior suites that come with a king-size bed, lounge area, and private balcony. All rooms are equipped with free standing soaking tubs, a rain shower, and bathrobes.
Junior Suite Grand Review
I personally stayed in the Junior Suite Grand room and have to say it was truly incredible!
From the moment I stepped into the room, I was in awe of the contemporary Mexican design.
The room itself is spacious and modern, with lots of natural light pouring in from from the large sliding glass doors to the balcony.
A comfortable king-size bed faces the balcony, meaning you can enjoy sea views from the comfort of your bed.
The room also features a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a safety deposit box, air conditioning, and a minibar.
The private balcony was the real highlight of this room with absolutely stunning views of the bright turquoise sea.
With comfortable rocking chairs and a hammock for lounging, the balcony quickly became my happy place and was so unforgettable!
It doesn’t get much better than enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sun set over the horizon.
But yet another incredible feature of the Junior Suite Grand is the free-standing bathtub – this was such a treat and honestly one of the reasons I booked this room. Bathtubs are hard to come by in Mexico!
Additionally, the private bathroom had high-end toiletries, a hair dryer, and comfy bath robes – perfect for relaxing after a long day in the sun.
The room also had thoughtful touches like an espresso coffee machine, a beach bag with towels, and chocolates left on the pillows.
The only really down side was the wifi signal was pretty poor in my room. The free wifi was stronger in the common areas so I suspect it was just because of my room’s location on the upper floors.
Additionally, I could hear a little bit of street and hallway noise from my room but it wasn’t an issue overnight.
But overall, I was blown away by Hotel B Unique’s beautiful guest rooms – I truly didn’t want to leave!
I would highly recommend upgrading to an ocean view room because having your own private balcony facing the water is such an incredible experience.

Pool/Lounge Rating: 9/10
Hotel B Unique Cozumel offers guests a stunning oceanfront infinity pool with sunbeds and cabanas, perfect for lounging around and soaking up the sun.
The outdoor swimming pool and lounge area is the real highlight of the hotel because the ocean views are absolutely incredible! I honestly can’t stop thinking about the views! 😍
The outdoor pool also has unique dining tables embedded into its side, so you can enjoy your meal at pool level!
In addition to this, Hotel B Unique Cozumel provides trendy hammocks over the ocean for those who want to relax and take in the incredible views.
For those looking for even more unique places to relax, there’s also a stylish seating area and oceanfront deck that doubles as a yoga space.
And if you want to indulge in some poolside food and drinks, service is available from the Xula restaurant.
Overall, Hotel B Unique provides a great atmosphere and outdoor space – it’s quiet and relaxing, but still upbeat without feeling like a party zone.
Plus, you really can’t miss the sunset here – it’s a must see!
Hotel B Unique Cozumel Review: Restaurants
Restaurants Rating: 8/10
Hotel B Unique Cozumel is not all inclusive but still offers guests an array of dining and drinking options.
The on-site restaurant, Xula, is a modern restaurant featuring upscale Asian-Mexican fusion cuisine.
This restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and also offers poolside food and drink service to those lounging at the pool.
I ordered a margarita at the pool while watching the sunset and it was refreshing and tasty!
For breakfast, the hotel offers a complimentary buffet breakfast at Xula restaurant.
Or you can choose to order ahead through room service and place your order card outside your door the night before.
I decided to dine in the restaurant and found that the breakfast buffet selection was decent, but not phenomenal. But at the same time, it’s really nice that breakfast is included in the room rate.
On the Mexican and American breakfast buffet, you’ll find items like veggie omelets, chilaquiles, pancakes, breakfast potatoes, and fresh fruit.
And if the breakfast buffet isn’t to your liking, you can also order made-to-order breakfast items off the Hotel B Unique Cozumel menu for an extra charge.
Room service is also available for those who prefer to dine in their rooms. Although it’s not available 24 hours, it’s still open pretty late.
On my visit I ordered a burger, fries, and a glass of Prosecco from room service – it was really tasty and beautifully presented!
Overall Hotel B Unique Cozumel offers upscale yet affordable options for dining and drinking – don’t miss having a cocktail on the infinity pool deck while watching the sunset!
Hotel B Unique Cozumel Review: Service
Service Rating: 8/10
Overall, I found the service at Hotel B Unique Cozumel to be very good. Check-in was friendly and efficient, and I was provided with a wellness welcome shot (a refreshing orange drink) and a cold towel.
The front desk staff was also eager to answer questions and provide a quick tour of the property. They also escorted me to my room and offered luggage assistance.
Hotel B Unique also offers a QR code in the room that you can scan to find out more information on the hotel’s services and amenities. I found this useful, especially when looking up the room service and restaurant menus.
In the lobby, there is also a tour desk and concierge service to assist with arranging activities in Cozumel.
The staff around the pool was also extremely friendly, making sure that all guests had what they needed and refreshing drinks and cocktails.
The hostess at Xula restaurant was also incredibly welcoming, making sure that all guests were comfortable and had what they needed.
The only thing I would critique is that the pool area could have used a little more attention. I arrived later in the day and there were some empty glasses and dirty towels scattered about that hadn’t been cleared away.
But overall, Hotel B Unique Cozumel offers fantastic service and makes sure that guests are taken care of throughout their stay.
