Budget prices for a resort island and a convenient location for water taxis, divers, restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff available during the day time. Room was basic, but large and clean with air conditioning--reminded me of my dorm room decades ago only this was larger and had a private bath. Potable water refills available in the office. Front deck with chairs... More

We spent 4 days in San Pedro for Scuba certification. Tio Pil is in a convenient location, right off water taxi port, had friendly staff along with AC and wireless internet. For the amount of time we spent in the room it was a great hotel. However, it is more of a backpackers hotel, so if you want more than... More

My boyfriend and I are university students and stayed here for 5 nights while in San Pedro and loved it. Easy to find from the beach because of the lime green colour, but a bit harder to find from the streets, even with our lonely planet map. The room was clean and air conditioned, which was a treat in the... More

Very nice staff (when they are around, we seemed to miss them a lot in the office) who tried to make our stay the best. The deck is really the highlight as the rooms are quite spare but comfortable... Maybe they could use some TLC as well. But the location is good to explore San Pedro. If I were in... More

Tio Pils is located right on the beach, just a few steps away from the water taxi dock making getting there simple! The rooms are nice (very basic, but comfortable), and the balcony with hammocks is an excellent place to hang out or have a drink. We found everything we needed to be within walking distance of Tio Pils, and... More

My husband and I spent a week at Tio Pils, and it was an amazing trip. It's not a fancy resort; it is a family-owned budget hotel, and it suited us perfectly. We were upstairs in room #1, which has air conditioning, a refrigerator and a microwave. They put bottled water in the room for guests, which is a nice... More

Tio Pils is a wonderful budget hotel just minutes away from everything! Water taxis, Restaurants, and my personal favorite a scenic view of the Caribbean Sea! The Staff is extremely nice, always helpful in suggesting great places to go to and the rooms are always clean. Every time im there they make me feel like family!

We thought this room would be nicer than it was, after reading some good reviews on it. It was old, not being maintained, dingy, and unclean. There were ripples in the dirty linoleum on the floor. It was a little hard to get extra towels, since we didn't want to use our bath towels at the beach. It did have... More

Dear Vacationers62, We are very sorry to hear you expected more from our small hotel. Your entirely right, we are not for everyone. We are indeed an older hotel and what we offer is the basics at a good price with a stellar location and a fantastic view! Our rooms are cleaned and checked daily by our housekeeper and front-desk...

My friends and I were in Belize last July and stayed here for 3 nights. We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff is very friendly and have daily maid service.
