Booked through another website, found that they charged the first night immediately. The location and the price are ok, once they have your money service is gone. Even if I had pay in advanced the whole stay. The staff kept abruptly knocking the door in the night saying that they had came to collect the money of the night. Secondly,... More

This place is right on the beach and close to all water activities. It has a lovely balcony for looking out at the water, sunning, or just having a cool Belikin. Watch the people at the desk, though. They "forgot" to give me a refund of the price between two different snorkel trips and charged for gear which is included... More

Staff is friendly. Room was basic, but cheap and clean. Price was right. Building is right on the beach and close to the center of town. I'd definitely stay here again. If you're a picky person who likes new things and fancy stays, this ain't the Ritz, so look elsewhere. This is for the traveller on a budget who doesn't... More

Overall, Ruby's is not a bad place. I found the personnel to be very friendly and helpful. The room rates are quite reasonable and it has a very central location. The problem with Room 20 is the bed. It consists of a broken-down, VERY thin foam "mattress" over a wooden pallet, twin sized. I did check out some of the... More

Hotel is cheap option, safe and clean, a bit older but nice. Right in the center of San Pedro and on the beach near to all ferry ports. Receptionist spoke english. There is no proper beach on this island though, all beaches are small and jammed by small cars and people walking. Also due to many ports every 100 meters... More

This is (there now) my 3rd stay at Ruby's over an 18 year period. I never changes. It is the same inexpensive pleasant experience. NOTHING FANCY I fact very very basic. Great location on the beach looking out at the barrier reef. Just a short easy walk from the airport, and many restaurants and shops and the water taxi is... More

Since I'm a female traveling solo and was arriving at around 8pm in high season, I wanted to book my room in advance. I got in touch with Ruby's a few days before I was due to arrive and I agreed to a room for $25 US (first floor, no view) and sent my credit card particulars as requested. Unfortunately,... More

It was raining so the streets were somewhatless than the usual businessess that was to become aparrent in the coming days. At Rubys the kind lady set me up with a fine room looking... More

It was a bit bizarre turning up and getting the keys from a shack on the beach but we accepted it happily, and it was in an amazing location, right on the beach, with incredible views of the ocean. It was real paradise. There was no airconditioning, but everywhere was clean and the shower was hot and fine. They delivered... More

Our 3-night stay at Ruby's Hotel was above average. Our third floor room was simple and except for the floors, the room was very clean, with hot water and fan. The bed was very comfortable and linens clean. This budget hotel's location is great - right on the beach with lovely views and close to shops, services and water taxis.... More
