Not a five star resort, but clean, comfortable, well-located, and reasonably priced. What really made the place was Javier, one of the employees. He's extremely helpful and friendly, and went out of his way to help us find everything we needed/wanted during our stay. The company he recommended we take a snorkeling trip with was extremely highly rated and professional.

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... More

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,... More

Ended up here by accident late one evening - the hotel that I had booked and confirmed through a booking engine had closed down in the meantime, so helpful locals directed me to Hotel del Rio, which gracefully put me up for four nights. The hotel is an assemblage of palm-thatched bungalows, regular rooms (of which I had one) and... More

If great value and a cool local vibe is what you are looking for, I think the Hotel del Rio is great! We stayed in a palapa upstairs with a balcony view of the palms and sea. There was always a nice breeze in our room and slept with the balcony doors open. We had a small kitchen, but didn't... More

We picked Hotel del Rio based on tripadvisor reviews. Upon arrival, we loved the authentic belizian feel of the outside, and it was a nice location - gorgeous views. The staff was excellent and helpful. At first, I was a little put off by the simplicity of the room. Very thin bedding, very simple decor. I soon realized this was... More

This was probably my third or fourth time to Ambergris Caye and I still love it. I love how close HDR is to everything. It's just a walk away. The fact that you can walk on the beach to get everywhere is super nice. I really loved the bakery across the street. We went there every morning! The Cabana Casita... More

My family and I recently stayed at Hotel Del Rio and we reserved four rooms; Cabana Casita, Casita Grande, Casa Azul and the double unit of the Palms Veranda. Our favorite rooms were those surrounding the palapa in the center of the property (cabana casita and cabana grande). The layout of the hotel is perfect for large groups and the... More
