You can't beat the location of this spot. It's ON the beach - we literally watched the sunrise come up over the dock/ocean from our bed. It's outside of town enough that the noise won't bother you, but definitely close enough to walk. We even walked there from the airport. Owners were very helpful, wifi worked in the room. Rooms...

The good: fantastic location. It is near San Pedro, but far enough away that you don't have to deal with the noise and drunk people. We were there during the Costa Maya festival, which seemed more like spring break for central america, but Hotel Del Rio was far enough away that we didn't have to deal with a lot of...

Highly recommend although it was quite hot in the room. More needs to be done about the cockroaches if possible. Everyone was so nice and loved the location! The staff attempted to do everything possible about any complaints that we had such as bring us fans and spray for bugs. Overall great value and had a great time.

Javier, the manager of Hotel del Rio is one of the nicest people. He helped us with everything. We had one of the cottages in the front and did not realize at the time they were not air conditioned. It was very hot and humid there in July and a little to warm. The rooms in the back are air...

We stayed for a week, switching rooms halfway through (because of availability). These clean thatched roof bungalos are right on the beach, and a little bit north of the crowd so they were nice and quiet. The proprietors were extremely helpful with suggestions for authentic and budget meals. They can also make reservations for diving and off-island activities for you,...

Great location on the island, was nice and quiet place. We rented a beach bungalo and it was nice, clean, and had that cool beach bungalo sorta vibe. The appointments were not high-end(ie granite counter tops) but not sure if anything really is in the Cayes anyway. Just mentioning that as information really as the appeal was still great.

We just returned yesterday (June7, 2015) from a week at Hotel Del Rio. Javier and Tomas are absolutely the nicest and most helpful people. Javier is absolutely wonderful about orienting folks to the Island and spent time telling us history of the island and just chatting.
