After reading many pretty good reviews on this website we decided to book this hotel for 5 nights. Upon arrival we were turned off by the decrepit looking exterior. Maybe the inside would be better.....nope. We booked an ocean front room where it was supposed to be quieter, there were people talking late into the night every night and we... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night based on reviews here on TA. Many of the reviews say that the upstairs AC rooms are quieter, but not while we stayed there, We were in room #26 which is in the corner facing the beach. There was a reggae band that played until pretty late and even that wasn't... More

We stayed at this place on the recommendation of a friend. What a dump. The bed was like sleeping on rocks covered with a sheet. (we were on the top floor facing the ocean in the corner)The place was crawling with roaches and no one cleaned the bathtub the whole time we were there, I finally had to go across... More

Arrived in San Pedro and Ruby's full but got in Room #26 after two nights elsewhere. Loved it....new airconditioning that worked...very clean....hot water. Ocean front balcony and quiet. All for $60 USD. Go downstairs in the morning for coffee and hot Johnnycakes and eat on the balcony. Walk to restaurants, dive shops and airport....great to be in the center of... More

We stayed at Ruby's Feb. 5-13, 2008. It was the perfect low-cost, no-frills on-the-beach hotel. Our room (#26) was on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the beach and sea. We would sit there in the sun, watching folks walk by and listening to the palm trees in the wind. The room had air conditioning, a nice-sized bathroom and... More

I meticulously researched my trip (traveling with my brother) before booking and Ruby's Hotel seemed like the best deal -- after staying there for a week, I can back that up with 1st-hand experience. While in San Pedro, we passed every other "budget hotel/inn" in town and we were really glad we chose Ruby's as all the others looked pretty... More

I've been staying at Ruby's for a long time now. The older section of the hotel is rickety and cheap, but on the beach and walking distance to anywhere. For the price, you can't beat it. I usually stay in the beach front airconditioned rooms. They're more expensive at US$60, but a great deal for a room on the Caribbean.

Had the greatest vacation of my life in Belize in 2004. Ruby's is the only way to see San Pedro. We had an ocean view room with a fan. The price is right. My girlfriend (now wife) and I just loved it. Most of the resorts in San Pedro are far from the town's center. Ruby's is right in the... More

I have just returned from a two-week holiday in Belize, travelling alone. I spent my second week San Pedro staying at Rubys (first week in San Igancio) and cannot recommend the place highly enough. Like the other reviews say, its not the Four Seasons, but for the price its a great choice. I had a double room with ocean views,... More

The advantage of this hotel is that it was located only a block south of the Caye Caulker boat pier. It is definitely within the "get what you pay for" category but the room was clean and large enough. The bathroom had a shower with adequate hot water and space for accessories. On the down side the room was dimly... More
