I got a good deal as I arrived with no reservation.
Location on beach perfect.
Rooms are tired but ok for price I paid versus others.
Dive shop great.
Food good and bar area nice.
Service from all areas was great.

We had to stay 1 night in San Pedro for the Lobesterfest. Found the hotel on the internet for ~$100.00. Very nice lobby and bar area. The rooms were VERY basis and outdated, there are many hotels in San Pedro that are a better value.

Room Tip: Was ocean front but poor view.

I am not a luxury driven traveler whose dream vacation is a miss placed version of Disneyland. I want to experience the island and interact with the local culture and other travelers... the Holiday Hotel is the perfect place to do all that and more! Owned by one of the oldest, most established & respected San Pedro families... the hotel has been updated, is clean and perfectly appointed. No detail has been overlooked and you will find everything you could possibly need here. The rooms are bright, meticulous and secure. There are beach lounge areas that are low fenced off to provide a bit of privacy and a barrier of sort from over zealous vendors without making you feel isolated. The beach is delightful, clean and the sea grass is well cleared for a bit of swimming... in fact more so than some of the more upscale, pricier resorts I have seen.

The restaurant and bar are fantastic... great food, excellent service with comfortable and inviting sofa sitting areas. The WIFI is excellent... and available to you as a guest. The service all across the board is OUTSTANDING. Everyone is accommodating and as pleasant as can be. The only non-positive aspect I could possibly point out to you is that you will be exposed to the evening music playing at the neighboring bars. Personally, that doesn't bother me... so isn't a deal breaker for me.

This truly is San Pedro at it's most real and very best. For the traveler that is on a reasonable budget, who wants a pleasant lodging experience in a fantastic location you can do no better than the Holiday Hotel. I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else while in Ambergris Caye! When I am in San Pedro... I consider the Holiday Hotel my home and that is precisely how it feels.

I stay here on most trips to San Pedro. The Holiday Hotel has an exceptional staff and will help you find any activity on the island. The rooms are basic but comfortable but above all you will be 10 paces from the beach and the view out your window is spectacular!! Best lodging for the price. Next door at Celie's Restaurant the menu is amazing...save room for the Key Lime Cake!

I didn't stay at this hotel, but I wanted to give a great review of my massage on the beach here. My two girlfriends and I were able to all get a massage at once in the hut on the beach. It was a great massage for only $45US for an hour...half the price of a massage in the US and just as wonderful. The bartender at the Caprice made us really good drinks before our massage, also.

We enjoyed our stay at this quaint hotel. Good old fashioned friendly service and a charming atmosphere. You can't beat the location, the service and the price! We spent a lot of our time just relaxing on the comfy red couch in the bar/restaurant area.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled room.

Stayed here for 3 night while giving a training in San Pedro. Holiday Hotel is very proximity to all the major places. It has a nice view to the sea with a huge opening and balcony on the restaurant. It provides some very nice local dishes that our entire team enjoyed. We all had a nice relaxed time. Can't complain about the service as we were treated genuinely with respect. We would book with them on our next trip visit.
