Accommodation on San Pedro is relatively expensive for what you get so this hotel is a good choice for inexpensive accommodation. We paid around 70 BLZ dollars (35 USD) for a double room and the hotel is in a great location at the bottom end of San Pedro Town. If you are looking for somewhere just to put your head...

Really, let's not harsh out Ruby's. 30 bucks a night, what can you expect? It was a terrific value, compared to other options on the Caye. The service was great, the coffee was cheap, and honestly, if you are spending a ton of time in your hotel room whilst in San Pedro, there is something seriously wrong with you. Can't...

You have everything you need, great location, in the middle of everything. Do not expect luxuary. One extra point for price.

I stayed with my husband at ruby's for 2 nights. Reception was very uninviting, it felt like we were disturbing. The room was bare, like a kitchenette had been taken out. Bright blue walls and slippery tile floor. The bathroom was the worst. Broken tile, limescale and rust on anything stainless and lots of ants. The towels had runny red...

Sorry to all the Ruby/Belize lovers out there, but I absolutely hated this hotel. My husband and I flew to Cancun on AK Airline companion tickets in about '03. I really should have checked out of this hotel right away, as there appeared to be a lot of nice places around. My bad. As I become more versed in traveling,...

Yes, the room might not have been spotless, there was no AC (nevertheless, 2 strong fans did the job), the bathroom was kind of run down, but that was what I settled for when I came. I liked the balcony where I could just sit and stare at the ocean for hours, I liked their little cafe with tasty cakes...

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Ruby's and would definitely go back. We were on the second floor and had our own private balcony overlooking the ocean with A/C. We knew we would be spending very little time in our rooms, so this budget hotel was perfect for us. Our room was very clean, the staff was unbelievably...

I guess you can say this place is clean on the outside. It wasn't that bad at first but once you start to look around you notice how poor their cleaning service is. They change the sheets and towels every 3 days which is fine if you don't dirty a towel. My problem with the place was all the mold...

First off the staff was really nice. Check in was pleasant and they were happy to answer any questions we had. When I was unhappy and wanted to check out the next day, no questions asked they had no problem with it. I appreciated that. The location is on the far end of town but still central to the center...
