Ocean Tide Beach Resort
Ranked #20 of 55 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We always try to stay at The Tides whenever we stay in San Pedro for several reasons: it's a Belizean family owned and run hotel by native San Pedroans; it's classic colonial timber construction; and it's right on the beach with fantastic views and a dive shop to boot.

Plus, it's just on the edge of town, so far enough away to be really quiet yet close enough to walk to all of the action. Sabrina, Patojo and the girls (and boy) are always fantastic and like family to my wife and me after visiting there for well over 10 years now. And for $75 US dollars a night you will not get anything as good as this in that price range and certainly not right on the beach, nor with any of the charm.

For similar properties nearby that are not as good, in my opinion, you would need to add $100 to that price, so really you can't go wrong. Thanks again guys for another great stay and we'll be back in September to celebrate my 50th!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the second floor as the views of the reef and sea are great.

We spent three nights here and had a great time. The hotel is family run and they do everything to make your stay enjoyable. Right on the beach and is quiet and close to everything. A good value for your money. They also offer diving on the great coral reef. Although they do not have a resturant, there is an excellent one a short distant from hotel out on the water.

We returned again for our vacation to The Tides. Rooms are basic, but what do you really need?We had everything we needed and more with great friendly service with a family experience. Rooms are extremely clean.

Patojo is great to dive with, very particular about instructions and runs a tight ship with his crew. Knowledge of the area and the reef in enormous and always has concern for the safety and satisfaction of his divers.

Hotel is in a great location, spectacular views. Close to town but not so close that it is noisy.

Great place to stay and dive if you want value for your dollar.

On our trip to Belize we visited this resort. Firstly everything seemed good: the owner Sabrina was nice etc. But then this changed. We payed for diving but beacuse of the weather the trip was cancelled. We were promised to get the money back but till nowadays we didn't get anything. The place is really beautifull but the situation and behawior of the owner isn't good.

We stayed at the tides for one night and had a great time from start to finish. We checked in at least three hours early since the room was ready and hung out on the pool patio with the ocean view. The staff including my main man Donovan are laid back, helpful, and even showed us some nearby local wildlife caught by some kids (octopus). Definitely worth it to spend a few dollars more than the bare bones hotel and stay at the Tides!
