Stayed for 3 nights. The place is less than a minute's walk from the San Pedro airport. Room #3 is painted a weak muddy blue. The plumbing in the toilet is suspect. Water pressure inadequate in the commode. No one came to have a look even after I mentioned it to the office staff. Shower pressure is good. There was... More

If you are looking for a great place to stay whiling being able to save this is a great choice. My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Ruby's, we are diving so the location was important but we were comfortable in the room it was clean and was right in town. The staff is very kind and friendly while... More

Recently returned from San Pedro. We went down there without a place booked because we wanted to get a better idea of the town before committing to anything. This was the first place we stopped in at and we immediately fell in love. It's right on the beach with a great little cafe downstairs. Our room faced the street not... More

I love this little hotel. Right on the beach, basic, friendly, clean and well priced. The rooms have beds, bedside tables, wardrobe, fans. No tv, but free internet. If you want luxury, this is not for you. If you want to sleep cheap, and spend your hard earned dollars on activities in San Pedro, rather than your lodgings, Ruby's is... More

We didn't pay much to stay at this great hotel in San Pedro. Since the beginning the staff were very friendly with us. The location is perfect if you're a diver because it is right in front of the beach and very close to centre town. Rooms are ok, but they have everything you need.

This was one of the cheapest places I found in San Pedro which isn't saying much as I paid almost $40 a night for a very basic room with fan. $40 a night might not seem very much but I was paying $20+ for something lovely in Cate Caulker, hence my disappointment. The living area (if you can call it... More

Ruby's hotel has been our first stop at the Cayes. The spot is great, right on the beach. It has a veranda and a solarium that you can use. The whole hotel is a bit on the "beaten side", so don't expect luxury. Still, the location is what makes it a good deal. You can literally walk there once you... More

Ruby’s costs next to nothing, so what you get is next to nothing. Of course I could go on and list such things as paper-thin walls, paintwork flaking off the walls, erratic WiFi, terrace furniture falling apart, no water when too many people take a shower, no sign of security, etc. But hey, it is a low-budget option and one...

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
