We stayed for a week in January and it was the perfect place for us. The location was great. the cabin was ideal and the staff and owner were simply wonderful. Sea side views with beautiful sunrises on the pier. The continental breakfast is served at the community palapa right in the centre of the grounds so you get to meet travellers from all over the world and exchange Belize 'must do's' before your day even started. The housekeeping staff were so sweet and the office personnel very helpful if you need golf cart, tours or where the best coffee shop is. The owner was down having coffee most mornings and has so many great stories. Hotel Del Rio is the perfect location for access and has plenty of cart parking. Walk out your door to the left and you will find La Choza (see review) which was a fantastic local hangout, walk to the right and you will find Hurricanes (see review) which was one of our favorites. this hotel is the perfect blend of modern conveniences and old belize charm. We will definitely be back !!

Room Tip: We are so happy we chose the cabin as opposed to the apartments but all seemed very nice.

I loved our week at the hotel del rio! The rooms are quaint, yet have everything we could need. The staff are helpful, courteous and engaging. The owner is a great guy to sit and talk to as he is always willing to give advice and recommendations on what to do etc. If you are looking for a laid back relaxing place to stay, you have found it at the Hotel Del Rio!

This hotel is very cute and the location is wonderful!!! You walk about 50 ft across the sand “street” and you are at the waterline! Our hotel room was clean and spacious with two double beds and a kitchenette area (Cabinet with dinnerware/cutlery/cups etc) and a small bathroom with walk-in shower. The price was great for our stay. The front office personnel was very helpful and responded quickly when I emailed them questions about our trip. (Response Time was within 10-15 minutes of original email going out...). They helped us rent a golf cart($10 cheaper than the places in town) and even had the golf cart personnel pick us up at the San Pedro Airport and drive us to the hotel. Customer service was excellent and above some 5 star hotels I have stayed at!!! On our last day we needed a ride/taxi to our snorkeling company’s dock and the owner of the hotel took us down there in his golf cart!! What a wonderful gesture for us and it made our trip!!! Great job to everyone who works at Hotel Del Rio! Also on Wednesday evening they had a local dance/sing group and perform for the guests with no cost to us! Wonderful!! Disliked · The room could use an update but it didn’t bother us because the room was very clean and we only slept in the room. There is so much to do outside that you aren’t in your room a lot!!!

This is a lovely place to stay right on the water. It is a 15-20 min walk into town but away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. There are rooms and huts that you can stay in. The rooms are tiny with attached bathrooms but you cannot spend too much time in there. The cabana we stayed in on our last day it was terrace, hammock, chairs and kitchen. Much more comfortable. There is breakfast included with buns, toasts, fruit and coffee. The staff is wonderful and helpful. We arranged all our snorkeling tours for both days through the hotel. We got great guides both times. The hotel is near a lot of drinking bars but for better food, its good to go into town. They have wi-fi, laundry services and maps. There is a small beach 5 min away with playground for children in and out of the water. Security guard comes in at night to watch over the place. It was a lovely stay.
