Great staff and location. Quiet yet walking distance to the action. BEST shower on the island!

It’s fine but don’t expect much.
The place is fine. It’s a room. But the shower water smells horrific. It smells like rotting sea grass, which is a problem on the island as it is. I didn’t complain because I figured it was all over the island, but come to find our that it wasn’t. They need to treat the water. Also there was one woman, Fenicia, who was lovely. The rest of the staff always seemed to be bothered by any kind of request. They also would sit and talk all day. The fruit in the morning was nice but they would leave juice out and not clean the container properly so it tasted like dish soap. It was just a lack of car.

Nice stay on the ocean.
It was a good stay due to the fact that weather was cooler (due to rain one night and less sun) -- nice because there is no air con in the rooms. Just opening the windows and door helped (would have been nice if I could lock the screen door to leave main door open at all times. The office staff is wonderful and attends to all needs and questions/requests. Location could not be better for restaurants and the water. The whole town is walkable so there is no really bad location. Early simple breakfast is a plus although I did not take advantage of it. Hammocks outside are nice as well. I would stay there again.

Close to town across from beach
If you book this hotel understand that it is very rustic with basic accommodations. The wifi was good, beds were firm, no air con in our room, breakfast very basic but location was near town and across from the water. If we were to come back to San Pedro we would pay more for nice accommodations.

Winter getaway
The location to the north close to the river and toll bridge was quite and comfortable across from the beach! With walking distance to restaurants, market stores etc. The golf cart rental was reasonable also for a 24 hour rental so we could go to secret beach!

Great staff! Great location if you want to be downtown San Pedro ! Rooms where clean but just old / termite poop . Beds are small and not very comfortable ... It is a great place if you are out and about and not planning on hanging at the hotel to much. When you come back tired and ready for bed it works just fine !

Great stay by the beach
Great location right on the beach and close to town. It's in walking distance from the ferry. Breakfast is very basic (toast, PB, jam, fruit) but enough to get you started. Staff is very friendly and our room was spacious and clean. Would definitely recommend it!

Great little hotel near the beach
Lovely little establishment a little to the north of San Pedro and close to the beach areas. Jim has a great, reasonably priced hotel, many of the rooms have AC and the breakfast is simple toast, fruit and juice & coffee. The rooms I saw don't have TV but why do you need that! The WiFi worked great. Check in was easy and Suzi and the rest of the reception were really helpful and happy to answer any questions I had. It's a quick 10-15 min walk to town but there are stores, bars and restaurants closer. Overall really enjoyed my stay and would thoroughly recommend Hotel Del Rio to anyone wanting to visit Ambergris Caye!

Not EXACTLY what the description and photos show
This was a bargain, but there are a few things: 1. Our room had no A/C. Apparently, they have rooms with A/C, but ours didn't and they didn't have a room with A/C available. Be sure to check that the room you're booking has A/C!!! At night, with the louvered shutters open, 2 ceiling fans and 2 oscillating fans going, it was bearable. We're from Atlanta, so heat and humidity like that are nothing new for us. For anyone not used to those conditions, I don't know how they'd survive. NOTE*** We got a peak inside the Owner's Suite! If you can, BOOK IT!!! Spiral staircase, A/C and absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! 2. "Breakfast Included" consisted of loaf bread, butter, jelly, one kind of fresh fruit per day, guava juice and coffee. There was a toaster and it was placed under the palapas in the courtyard. It was NOT breakfast. I booked the breakfast included hoping that would get us one meal a day we didn't have to spend money on. Since it wasn't a real breakfast, we still went out for breakfast every day. 3. The photos make it look like it's on the beach...IT'S NOT. It's across a dirt street from the water, but the water isn't suitable for swimming. It's a beautiful view, but you can't just walk out your door and into the ocean like the description and photos would have you believe. 4. It's really close to some great bars, but during the summer everything closes REALLY early. 5. They have nighttime security so we felt really safe. 5. Wi-fi is spotty at best.
