First of all let me say that I absolutely loved Hotel Del Rio. And for WHAT IT IS it's excellent. I say for what it is because it's a budget travel type of experience period. This is a small single owner hotel. Not a resort. We stayed in the newest cabana that had a double bed and two twin beds. the double bed was about the size of a small sofa pull out sleeper and no way were both my husband and i sleeping on it. I slept in one of the twin beds and at 5'3 was just able to not roll off either side. There was no air conditioning just two overhead fans and lot's of shuttered screened windows. But we were very comfortable in the room temperature wise. I understand some rooms have air conditioning. But as far as out of the country budget travel goes.. this place in my opinion was top notch for these reasons: very very clean! the staff was exceptional. Extremely helpful, responsive and friendly. It felt more like staying with friends than hotel living. I had one complaint and when the manager heard about it he had it fixed in about 20 minutes. The kitchen was awesome and they provided a coffee pot and for a small charge a water cooler. The location is also kind of low rent for the island. But I liked that. It felt homey and not touristy. The biggest downside for me was the noise. The cabanas are all located around one central gathering area and if people are out there talking at night they might as well be in your room. There are a lot of island dogs and they bark a lot and you can even hear some people out on the street behind the resort. The other downside is that while it is ocean front there is very little "beach" to speak of at this spot. to be oceanfront you pretty much have to go out on the dock. In summary... if you're looking to go to San Pedro and not spend a ton of money but stay in a clean, safe and friendly spot... this is it!
