This extremely well located hotel is north of sSan Pedro major attractions, in a quiet, breezy environment directly on th beach
Beautiful well equipped cabanas give you the confort you re expecting form a good hotel, and you ll find a team that welcomes you like a real guest who deserves attention : they are always helpfull and ready to take care of you; if you like it you can meet and play chess with the local Kasparov: his name is Javier and he will take care of you in any information you require

We loved staying at the hotel. The hotel staff was friendly and helped us find excursions to our liking. The owner stayed on the property during our stay and we thought he was another guest. He mingled with everyone in the common area. The hotel was in a great location and we literally walked everywhere we went. Unlike many other hotels, the website accurately depicted the rooms and property. Our cabana was directly off of the beach and the breeze was beautiful. There certainly wasn't a need for AC. Even though the cabana was directly off the beach, there was privacy. Sitting off the dock or on the hammock at night with the ocean breeze, I don't see how anyone would have trouble relaxing. I was sad to leave the hotel and island, but can't wait to return.

Reserved the casita and was pleasantly surprised that I did not miss TV or A/C.
The hotel is right on the beach and has access to a dock for swimming. The cool
night breezes actually had me closing the windows! Javier was most helpful acquiring
a golf cart for me to rent. Can't wait to come back.

We loved this place! It is nicely situated on the north side of town (an easy, waterfront 5-10 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of town), which is perfect because downtown is pretty loud at night.

The views everywhere on the Caye are spectacular, and Hotel del Rio's are particularly wonderfully enjoyed from the center courtyard.

We stayed in the cabana casita in July, and we were fine with just the breeze at night. Don't let the lack of AC scare you!

Javier and Tomas were very friendly and tried to help us with any and all of our requests.

The people that work here made us feel incredibly welcome. They were extremely accommodating and went above and beyond.

The units are small and quite rustic. The bed is HARD and small for two adults. But this part of the island is the place to be. It is close enough to walk to the restaurants and clubs but still on the less touristy side.

Wonderful place. The people are very helpful, and will go for the extra mile to keep the guests happy. The hotel is right on the Caribbean sea, with a beautiful beach. The rooms are very clean and breezy. We have come back almost a dozen times in the years.

We stayed 10 nights in the Dream House in April, 2012. It had a great view, very comfortable beds, a good sea breeze to keep the nights comfortable and was very cute from the outside. Javier was extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable. Downside was that it was extremely rustic, with broken door handles that look like they were that way for years, a bathroom door that jambed, and the kitchen utensils and pots and pans were in such poor condition, I would not dare give them away at a garage sale. We shared 2 butter knives with 4 people. Most pans had broken handles and there was no kettle for boiling water. OK if you do not plan to cook anything and only use the coffee maker. The other units were in much better shape and this one seems overpriced for the condition it was in. Still had a great time though! Will miss Javier very much. The people of San Pedro were extremely friendly too. A pleasant beachfront walk to town was also enjoyable. Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan were highlights of our 3 weeks in Belize. Javier can set you up with whatever trip you want.

Room Tip: Dream house seems to be the oldest and least renovated of the cabana but has the most space for 4 pe...
