Great bargain and clean hotel
Posted Aug 4, 2016 on Hotels
I was not expecting too much from this hotel, but I was wrong. It is a very solid place to stay in San Pedro. The room was very clean. I had an excellent balcony. Tip: Request the top floor. The stairs were steep to climb, but the view in nice; and nothing beats sitting out on the balcony in the ocean breeze. The hotel is located right on the beach, but it is a bit of a walk to the main part of San Pedro. A taxi ride is about $5-10 Belize dollars. Another tip: Pay in Belize dollars. The exchange rate is 2 Belize for every 1 dollar, but somehow I think they give better deals when you use local currency. Overall, I really liked the value of this hotel. It is not a resort. It does not offer all of the luxuries of other places, but it was a great value at $70/night.
Cons: The water stinks. That might just be due to the island water. Also, I had a hard time getting hot water. It was not hot enough for me. The bed is a little hard, but not too bad.
Pro: The room was clean. The TV was good. The air conditioner kept it ice cold when I wanted it to be.
