Centered in the very heart of San Pedro... on one of the nicest stretches of beach on the island is this unique, historic and iconic San Pedro colonial boutique inn, the Holiday Hotel. The name Miss Celi is synonymous with the property...the amazing woman that planted the seed for the very first hotel on the island back in 1965, which... More

We loved our stay at Holiday Hotel! The staff was so welcoming, accomodating & friendly. The food was great, the beachfront location excellant! The service was great all the way around from front desk, bar, restaraunt, gardener & housekeeping. The bed was comfy and room nice size.The TV was in an awkward location and the safe was wooden so we... More

The location of the hotel is fantastic and the folks that work there are great. They had a great little bar and they give you a complimentary drink. There are a lot of places very close to this. The rooms are a bit drab but you really can't beat this place for the price. Walk down the beach to Wild... More

Rooms are clean and decent. The hotel is right on the beach close to all the action. The hotel restaurant is great. Their ceviche is a must try. The only reason I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is because the bathrooms could use some renovating.

Staff was incredible. Location couldn't be better. Stayed for 3 nights on our honeymoon, and they went out of their way to make it special. Rooms are average, and could use some general updating, but who spends that much time in the room when your in paradise. Restaurant and bar were fantastic, and special mention to Kyla who was very...

The hotel is the oldest hotel on the island. The bar and outside dinning area are brand new. The bar offers a great happy hour with $3 Panty Rippas. The room are ok. Our room had three beds. One queen size bed surrounded by the two twin size beds on either side. The AC worked well in one of our... More

Stayed at the Holiday hotel for 4 nights. PROS: Staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is great-it is in the heart of the city so you can walk everywhere and is a stone's throw from the San Pedro water taxi. Clean room and the maids provided us fresh towels for the beach and bath daily. CONS: The music from... More

Stayed at Holiday Hotel 9-12 Mar, room 11. Water taxi in from BC and flew out on Tropic Air. Center of San Pedro, close to the actions and hot spots. Belizeable beach front and unique Island ambiance(first hotel in SP). Be aware certain nights can be loud from beach bars. Sunday and Monday nights were quite, Tuesday night with Tackle... More

Cons: I had read previous reviews, warning about the bar noise but thought we would be OK with a mid-week booking. We then had to alter dates after a passport snafu delayed our trip by 3-days, so our first night at the Holiday was Saturday, Feb 22, 2014. With our bad luck, this just happened to be a scheduled annual... More

We booked into the Holiday Hotel for only one night as the condo we were staying at couldn’t accommodate us for our last day/night in San Pedro. It was clean and comfortable but a bit noisy (we had room #3 which was above the kitchen) with the restaurant/bar next door.
