The location of the Drift in San Pedro is steps away from the beach. There is a bar called the Sandbar right behind it with fantastic Belizean staff that are very welcoming.The food here is very good with large portions at a reasonable price. The Drift Inn is freshly painted and looks great. The pool area is beautiful and well maintained. There is an area in the back for lounging with a couple of picnic tables, a shared outdoor kitchen, and BBQ area where people like to socialize. There is also a small ‘plunge pool’ if you want to cool down. The rooms themselves are clean and good. There is a fridge, but no TV. The bathroom was adequate for our needs, but the shower did not have a lot of pressure. The drains had a dank smell which seems to be common in San Pedro. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this budget accommodation.

Property's Favourite Review
I booked 4 nights at the Drift Inn but ended up extending another 3 nights here because I enjoyed it so much! The rooms are large and clean, the location is amazing, and the staff is the best! The air con kept us cool at night, and we had hot coffee and free drinking water provided the whole time I was there. The hotel is a short walking distance to the best bars and dive shops on the island, and the staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. They told us the best places to eat/drink each night, what events were going on each night, and recommended dive shops to use. I couldn't have been happier with my stay here, I highly recommend checking them out!!!

After spending eights nights at the Drift Inn in San Pedro, I cannot recommend this hotel/hostel highly enough. Even during Belize's 9pm curfew, Hailey, the staff, and the wonderful residents of the Inn made this property feel like home. Nestled next to a number of bars, restaurants, shops, and activities, the Drift Inn is within walking distance of everything you could possibly need on the island. Relax next to the pool, have a drink at one of the neighboring bars, or even work with Hailey and the staff to set up an excursion on the island - the Drift Inn has it all!

The staff was super helpful and friendly. We had some changes to our itinerary and they helped us through that. They also were very communicative as to what to expect when arriving not only to the hotel or San Pedro but also into Belize with COVID entry requirements. The location is great and as advertised.
