Very nice wooden cabanas! Book in advance, they're always fully booked. Wonderful choise if you think that near by all others hotel are made of cement. Unfortunatly there's always a lot of traffic on the sandy road during the day but this is San Pedro! Nice area between the cabanas with a big table where you can bring your food...

This place is perfect! The cabanas feel native and comfortable with large porches and great views of the ocean. The grounds are well manicured with a wonderful gondola in the middle for socializing. Many thanks and love to Javier and Pablo for looking out for us! We miss you and wish to come back one day! By the local coconut...

Charming rooms that are clean and well stocked. There is a shared dock right in front and a public beach nearby perfect for swimming and lounging. We had a rather traumatic robbery experience before we arrived and had to modify our vacation plans. The staff was warm and hospitable and very accommodating. They provided great recommendation for locally owned eateries...

Hotel del Rio was a great place to stay. They were very reasonably priced and offered great rooms. Management was very friendly and helpful. We felt that they went out of their way to provide simple things for us to make our experience enjoyable. The rooms were very nice and clean and the location was great. Only one complaint, we...

I stayed 5 nights at this hotel for my entire stay on Ambergris Caye. I initially booked the bungalow that was closest to the road but asked to be moved to a room with air-conditioning. I found the bungalow far too hot, noisy and we did encounter some cockroaches. Luckily, we were able to be moved to a room the...

I gotta say the place is located in one of the best spots on the the island. AMAZING view!! As soon as you step out of the hotel you are looking at the beach front! We had a room on the second floor with double doors! We opened them up and felt such a nice breeze come in the room!...

We booked this hotel for 3 nights and found the quality of the hotel to be the best bang for you're buck on the island. The rooms were clean, AC efficient and frequent housecleanings. While it is located north of the main town, and requires a 10 minute walk to downtown, its very worth it. It allows for peaceful quiet...

I love this little hotel. The little cabanas just far enough off the beaten path and on the water. While the hotel doesn't have air conditioning, the breeze from the water and listening to the birds in the morning was wonderful. Would definitely stay there again!

Stayed here the first week of March 2014. I must admit that I am spoiled on high end hotels, but in this case, it was well worth not having A/C as there is always a breeze blowing through. We stayed in an upstairs, Rm #8. It's sparse, but I get great vibes from this place. We originally scheduled 2 days,...
