Loved this place! Rooms are large and clean. There is a beachfront balcony for all guest to share with a couple of tables and chairs and a hammock or 2. For a beautiful beach front location this place is great value for money. Would stay here again :)

This hotel was formerly known as Tio Pil’s and is now knows as Country Cabana. We stayed here in mid-February, 2014 Pros - staff are very nice, location is great as it is in center of town and right on the beach (keep in mind the beaches in Ambergis Caye are not to lay out on though from what I...

We (couple, 40 & 50 years old) stayed at Tio Pil’s Hotel for one night in November 2013. We paid about $54 a night. Our room on the backside was average size but very old and worn. The floor was very uneven and covered with overlapping cheap linoleum. There was only one window looking out to an alley. The bathroom... More

As mentioned by any others, this is a great little family-run budget hotel in a superb location. Felipe made us feel very welcome. He took the time to get to know his guests, and let them know about San Pedro and Ambergris Caye. I would definitely stay at Tio Pil's again. Some others have mentioned noise. Other than one night...

I had a terrible experience here. I tried to give it a chance but after a few days, I was so grossed out by the uncleanliness of the room that I couldn't enjoy our vacation that we checked out early and left. PROS: - On the beach - Somewhat affordable - When asked for refund because we were really unhappy... More

If you're just looking for a cheap place to crash, don't care about maintenance issues, noise, etc..., then this will work. It is right in the middle of it all, which is both good and bad. We left after the first night, which was already paid for, because (while we didn't want to spend $100/night) we just couldn't take staying... More

Hi Dave77091, Thanks for taking the time to review our property. Every review helps us improve our little hotel. Indeed, we are right down town in the middle of it all and not for everyone.

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
