We chose this hotel because of the price as well as the location. It is on the northern end of the caye which is much more quite than around the city square. We could walk anywhere we wanted to go in 15 minutes. Javier and Tomas were great. We had several questions before arriving and they responded to our request... More

In January, 2016, we stayed for 5 nights in Coco Cabana at the sea & woke up every morning with a view of the sunrise which was absolutely breath taking. The small bungalows on the beach were wonderful and a few steps from the water. Tomas & Javier were terrific and helpful with making arrangements for golf carts (you will... More

We spent 5 days at the Hotel Del Rio in January of 2016. We stayed in one of the cabana rooms with no air conditioning and never missed it. with a ceiling fan and another fan in a corner, and windows on all walls, we had plenty of circulation to keep cool. Room was small by U.S.A. standards, but very... More

The staff at Hotel Del Rio was extremely helpful and accommodating. The room has a small fridge and nice shower. The location, north of the downtown area on the beach, was perfect with a 15-minute walk to most of the restaurants; some were even closer. WiFi was strong on the covered, outdoor common area, but weak in the room. Very... More

The place met and exceeded our expectations. Thomas and Javier were great. Only downside was transportation unless you like to walk and ride a bike. Stayed for 4 weeks. My wife to my surprise wants to go back.

Hotel del Rio was exactly what I was looking for in a budget caribbean hotel: fantastic location on the beach that was close enough to town to walk but far enough away to feel secluded, attentive staff that went out of their way to provide us with recommendations and advice, and clean well-maintained rooms (although the buildings themselves are in...

You can't beat the location of this spot. It's ON the beach - we literally watched the sunrise come up over the dock/ocean from our bed. It's outside of town enough that the noise won't bother you, but definitely close enough to walk. We even walked there from the airport. Owners were very helpful, wifi worked in the room. Rooms...

The good: fantastic location. It is near San Pedro, but far enough away that you don't have to deal with the noise and drunk people. We were there during the Costa Maya festival, which seemed more like spring break for central america, but Hotel Del Rio was far enough away that we didn't have to deal with a lot of... More

Highly recommend although it was quite hot in the room. More needs to be done about the cockroaches if possible. Everyone was so nice and loved the location! The staff attempted to do everything possible about any complaints that we had such as bring us fans and spray for bugs. Overall great value and had a great time.

Javier, the manager of Hotel del Rio is one of the nicest people. He helped us with everything. We had one of the cottages in the front and did not realize at the time they were not air conditioned. It was very hot and humid there in July and a little to warm. The rooms in the back are air... More
