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

I had a great experience at Ruby's ... I stayed with my boyfriend in a private room with a/c and a bathroom. The mattress was literally the most comfortable bed I had slept on anywhere in Central America. The room was clean and had a view to the ocean. The prices are reasonable, the location is unbeatable, and the staff... More

If you are going to San Pedro on a budget, Ruby's is perfect. It's right on the beach & is very reasonably priced. The rooms don't have air , but come w/ a fan for each bed & all the windows open. I never felt security was an issue & the personnel were extremely friendly.

the prize and the location are probably the strongest arguments speaking for Rubys Hotel in San Pedro. Our room was fairly simple but clean and had fresh towels and a soap bar. The location is the best feature however, being right on the shore at one side and in the middle of the towncenter on the other. No need to... More

Backpacking often leads you to budget accommodation and I accept that things will be very basic, that's fine. This place is pretty grim even by those standards. My feet were black within 2 mins of being in the room, don't think the floors have ever been cleaned. Bed was damp, towels were riddled with holes. Staff began their duties everyday... More

I like to travel a lot. Usually I prefer to stay in hostels and cheap hotels, or at campgrounds, so I can have more money for things like diving, snorkel trips, surf rentals and tour guides. After arriving in San Pedro by water taxi (Jet Express; great service) I walked around a little while with my girlfriend looking for a... More

I understand that budget rooms are meant to be very basic but I think they need to make a little more effort here. Walking barefoot in the room left your feet totally filthy. The walls were stained all over. The location is central which is nice but it's very noisy on weekends. Not only can you hear the loud music... More

Overshadowed by two resort hotels but this place is a gem for the budget conscious. We had an oceanview with a quarter the price you'd pay at the neighbor hotels. We got a basic room, no A/C, not TV but hey - who's in their beds on a vacation? Not to mention that in the Spring/Summer, there is always sufficient... More

I live on nearby Caye Caulker, but I have had business over in San Pedro, and have chosen to overnight at Ruby's each time. The staff is friendly and competent, the furnishings are minimal, but the rooms are always very clean and I have never had an issue with safety. Beachfront views from the large veranda is a bonus!
