“Great base to explore San Pedro”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This was a friendly, clean, quiet base in San Pedro. The location is perfect, just south of the bridge so easy access to the busy centre at the south of the island, as well as the resorts and bars to the north.

Our room was simple and clean with an en-suite bathroom, fridge and small balcony with sea glimpses. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful and the room was kept really clean and well maintained. We felt at home and at ease for the duration of our stay (one week).

We have been to the Ambergris caye twice now and stayed at 4 of the most recommended hotels under $100. Hotel del Rio has been the best! Great location, not far from the action.The staff are amazing, and always available to help. We got our room cleaned every day, even on Christmas day. The towels and sheets are brand new and very soft, the rooms are clean, and the ground are well cared for. I will say the bed was on the firm side. We stayed in the second floor palms veranda and had a great view. We did not find the room too rustic for the price it was quite the opposite, with new paint, art, and nice tile floors it was very comfortable without losing the island charm. Highly recommend!!

The staff went above and beyond the call of duty, especially with Jock our dog. They helped us enjoy a very nice quiet stay. While staying there Javier helped us book another two days for the 'End of the World Party' and a place for the next day Just in case. ha ha They just ran out of space on the Mayan calendar. Javier went out of his way to help us, along with the house- keeping staff and her children who took care of Jock and would not take any money for a tip.

Room Tip: Two South Palapas have best view of the Carabbean.

We loved staying at the hotel. The hotel staff was friendly and helped us find excursions to our liking. The owner stayed on the property during our stay and we thought he was another guest. He mingled with everyone in the common area. The hotel was in a great location and we literally walked everywhere we went. Unlike many other hotels, the website accurately depicted the rooms and property. Our cabana was directly off of the beach and the breeze was beautiful. There certainly wasn't a need for AC. Even though the cabana was directly off the beach, there was privacy. Sitting off the dock or on the hammock at night with the ocean breeze, I don't see how anyone would have trouble relaxing. I was sad to leave the hotel and island, but can't wait to return.

Reserved the casita and was pleasantly surprised that I did not miss TV or A/C.
The hotel is right on the beach and has access to a dock for swimming. The cool
night breezes actually had me closing the windows! Javier was most helpful acquiring
a golf cart for me to rent. Can't wait to come back.
