Very nice place to stay close enough to all the action. The beaches around here are not great; however, the huts at this hotel are fantastic. For minimalist, but it is really nice to hear the wind passing through your hut. Close enough walk from the fairy terminal.

I spent 2days at Hotel Del Rio and love it! Time just stood still here. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I stayed in a loft type unit with a bedroom downstairs. No TV didn't need it nor want it, everything you need or want is there in San Pedro .The sunrise there is beautiful as well as the...

We chose this hotel because of the price as well as the location. It is on the northern end of the caye which is much more quite than around the city square. We could walk anywhere we wanted to go in 15 minutes. Javier and Tomas were great. We had several questions before arriving and they responded to our request...

In January, 2016, we stayed for 5 nights in Coco Cabana at the sea & woke up every morning with a view of the sunrise which was absolutely breath taking. The small bungalows on the beach were wonderful and a few steps from the water. Tomas & Javier were terrific and helpful with making arrangements for golf carts (you will...

We spent 5 days at the Hotel Del Rio in January of 2016. We stayed in one of the cabana rooms with no air conditioning and never missed it. with a ceiling fan and another fan in a corner, and windows on all walls, we had plenty of circulation to keep cool. Room was small by U.S.A. standards, but very...

The staff at Hotel Del Rio was extremely helpful and accommodating. The room has a small fridge and nice shower. The location, north of the downtown area on the beach, was perfect with a 15-minute walk to most of the restaurants; some were even closer. WiFi was strong on the covered, outdoor common area, but weak in the room. Very...

The place met and exceeded our expectations. Thomas and Javier were great. Only downside was transportation unless you like to walk and ride a bike. Stayed for 4 weeks. My wife to my surprise wants to go back.

Hotel del Rio was exactly what I was looking for in a budget caribbean hotel: fantastic location on the beach that was close enough to town to walk but far enough away to feel secluded, attentive staff that went out of their way to provide us with recommendations and advice, and clean well-maintained rooms (although the buildings themselves are in...

You can't beat the location of this spot. It's ON the beach - we literally watched the sunrise come up over the dock/ocean from our bed. It's outside of town enough that the noise won't bother you, but definitely close enough to walk. We even walked there from the airport. Owners were very helpful, wifi worked in the room. Rooms...

The good: fantastic location. It is near San Pedro, but far enough away that you don't have to deal with the noise and drunk people.
