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

After the remarkable boat trip from Corozal the whole townfront of San Pedro was open for a long walk to see what was available for accomodation. 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

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
