We arrived on a Sunday in San Pedro with no reservations, wandering the beach like homeless people with luggage. That was our bad, not knowing that everything shuts down early (like, SUPER early) in the afternoon. Thankfully, the family that owns the Tides were out having a dinner around their back deck/pool area.
They were so gracious to take us in without reservations. The rooms were clean. The beds were comfortable. I felt safe at all times, and it was easy to find. Close to everything we needed. And the price during low season could NOT be beat.
The only problem, though, when we settled up at the end, is that their credit card machine was down. And they don't accept PayPal, which didn't surprise me. Wish I had known this beforehand, I had not prepared to pay for our stay in cash, but we had enough on hand between everyone to make it happen. Was VERY relieved their rate was low enough that this wasn't a serious problem, because they are listed as accepting credit cards.
They also own the dock across the "beach", which was great for sightseeing and meeting locals. We swam with needlefish and were scared out of the water by giant rays, later to find out these are local stingray "pets" that have been de-barbed and harmless.
Was greatful that they were able to take us in, our saviors!
