“Good for budget, and they can handle large groups”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2009

Actually used San Pedrano many times over the years that we would do student groups on San Pedro(until coming to the conclusion that San Pedro is not safe for student groups, or conducive for anything but student drinking - hey, the truth shouldn't hurt) They always were able to reserve every room for us with just 3 or so weeks notice. It was nice in that aspect of having the whole hotel to ourselves. It was never expensive, and of course that meant that sevice and amenities were almost non-existent. C'est la vie. You get what you pay for, and we didn't need much. Always had a fun time, and an unhindered stay.

I would recommend this for people on a budget, and who also want to be right in the center of San Pedro's yucky downtown.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2007

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel San Pedrano in December 2007. Although it is a fairly clean small hotel with a decent location in the heart of San Pedro, the hotel staff is almost nonexistent. When we arrived at 3-4pm the office was closed and locked. It is a sort of "mom and pop" place, run by a family who lives in the house below. So we essentially had to knock on their living room door to get them to check us in. Each day thereafter, the main office was NEVER open. We couldn't get help with where to go, how to make a phone call or anything. They also did not inform us we could purchase air conditioning for the room at only $10 US extra per night until we asked the cleaning lady the next day. At check-out, of course they were closed. We again had to bang on their house door to get any service.

It is cheap and clean, and a reasonable place to stay for the budget traveler. However do not expect any service and be prepared to pound on their house door to get your room key. And in Belize where everyone is so friendly, they stand out as quite annoyed by tourists.

I recently visited san pedro in ambergris caye and stayed at hotel san pedrano. I recommend this hotel for the traveler who doesn't want to spend too much on lodging. The hotel is clean with a decent size bathroom, although the shower water smelled like urine when you first turn it on. Keep in mind that many of the hotels in san pedro are in old buildings and not that spacious. If you want a hotel room with a lot of space and amenities, go with the resorts. I stayed at Lily's hotel as well which is located right next door, and found that it was smaller and costed a little more. I also saw a room at Martha's hotel and found it dark and small. Overall, I think hotel san pedrano is the best one. I paid $65 belize dollars for a triple room with A/C which fits well with my budget. It is located towards the end of the strip and steps away from the beach. don't worry too much about not being in the center of town because san pedro is very small. Everything is within walking distant. However, you can rent out golf carts to get around if you prefer.
