“Loved it !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

My son and I stayed here November 2012-I really loved this place, it has a awesome view of the water, and I so enjoyed watching the people walking by.
We ate at Lily's which is the restaurant right next door and they were really nice !
The owners are so super nice and I enjoyed visiting with them and they helped us out finding golf carts and where the fun places to go---Great place -not new and does need a little face-lift, but I will still there again--

This was a really good find in San Pedro - it was relatively cheap (compared to other places on Ambergris) and with friendly, helpful service. The rooms were comfortable, clean and had a great shower. The balcony with hammocks and seats overlooking the water was a lovely place to relax. It was in a great location - 10 minutes walk from the airport and near loads of dive shops and places to eat. Although breakfast isn't provided, there's coffee in the room and a fridge, and a great wee restaurant downstairs. The free water refills was a nice touch.

I was very satisfied with the cost and apperance of the hotel and room. Very clean and cost worthy for those on a budget. Great location in the heart of town. Restuarant downstairs and nearby shops and cantinas... Deffinately my next choice when heading to Isla Bonita...

Room Tip: WHY go to an island for a pool, the beautiful Warm Sea is there....

This wasn't fancy, but we weren't looking for fancy - we just wanted a safe, affordable place that was in a good location and this was all of that. Plus, the service was excellent - they really care about your comfort. Xiomara was extremely friendly and helpful. If we go back, we would go back to Tio Pil's. The hammocks are number one!

Room Tip: It's worth the extra money to stay on the front side with the view and the hammocks!

Let me start out by saying that Xiomara at the front desk is going to be around in this industry for a long time. She goes above and beyond to assist the customer. I exchanged about 20 emails with her before I even stayed at the hotel, and she responded to all of them right away with useful "things to do" information for me. She definitely has the right mentality for this business.

Now for the hotel itself. The location is excellent. The price is right. It is quiet enough for a good night's sleep. Great views from the large balcony. The rooms, however, are very outdated and need a makeover. I, personally, don't need much as far as my room goes. Others, would be quite disappointed. My room did have air conditioning, and it did blow cold. The water pressure needs work as well.

Overall, it's a decent value for the price. It's really not far from being an excellent value for the price, as long as they update the rooms.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review, HockeyMij. Firstly, Xiomara really is a gem and we're very happy to have her as part of our team! She is good at what she does and fits in perfectly at Tio Pil's where we're all about personalized service.

We are glad you enjoyed our location, balcony and price. We agree that it's that time of year again when renovations and makeovers are due. We'll be closing for a week in October to spruce things up again.

We hope you get to visit us again soon!
