Reviewed 8 February 2013

We enjoyed our stay at this quaint hotel. Good old fashioned friendly service and a charming atmosphere. You can't beat the location, the service and the price! We spent a lot of our time just relaxing on the comfy red couch in the bar/restaurant area.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled room.

Stayed here for 3 night while giving a training in San Pedro. Holiday Hotel is very proximity to all the major places. It has a nice view to the sea with a huge opening and balcony on the restaurant. It provides some very nice local dishes that our entire team enjoyed. We all had a nice relaxed time. Can't complain about the service as we were treated genuinely with respect. We would book with them on our next trip visit.

This is our 4th year staying at Holiday and we have really made some great friends here. Bringing a large group of students for two weeks every year can be challenging but the folks at Holiday always take good care of us. The location is perfect for eating, swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving and flying in or coming in by water taxi. The newly remodeled bar and restaurant are very, very nice. Ireni, Ismael and all take excellent care of us and make our stay a very relaxing one. New massage hut right out on the beach this year was great and a wonderful bargain for $40US per hour. Lilia was as good as any massage therapist in the US or on the island at far less expensive prices. Holiday treats us royally and we will continue to return here each January!

This was my first time to the island and was very disappointed. San Pedro was dirty and grimy with golf carts, cars and vans cluttering the main road. Along with the noise, garbage and litter was evident both on the roads and the beach. On the beach I was approached twice by dealers selling drugs. Overall I was not impressed and will not be back.

Holiday Hotel is a great place to stay! It's right in the heart of town and has a very beautiful view of the ocean from almost every angle. The staff is very courteous and the rooms are quaint and clean. We have stayed here twice in the last 1-1/2 years and have enjoyed it both times. If you're a light sleeper, however, you may not like the street noise at night. It hasn't bothered me but I could see it interfering with other people if they tend to be easily awakened. If you drink enough rum, you shouldn't have any problems though! :-)

Room Tip: Room 16 has the best view of the beach. The apartment is also very good if you're considering m...

My wife and I both enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly. Our room (#18) was fine with the exception of being directly over the hotel bar. Music plays from 7 in the morning til after midnight. Going to sleep early was out of the question. The music wouldn't be an issue in other rooms. The rooms are nothing fancy. It was nice sitting out on the balcony enjoying the breeze, looking out at the water and watching the boats going by. The food at the hotel restaurant was good. Prices were o.k.( but not cheap ). Hotel located right at waters edge. Dive shops/ boats for hire, snorkeling and other water activities just a few feet from hotel. Walking distance to/from airport...just a block or so. Food at hotel deli located across the street was so-so. Hotel has a guard walking around outside at night. We always felt safe everywhere we went, day or night. Everyone we met was very friendly and courteous...not just on Ambergris Caye but all of Belize.

Room Tip: Avoid room 18

This was my 2nd time staying here this year. One of the best locations right in the heart of San Pedro - close to restaurants, dive shops, water taxi and stores. There's no need for a golf cart as everything is within walking distance including the airport terminals. They've done a great job remodeling the lobby, bar/lounge, and patio dining area. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean but do not have a TV or clock which makes a stay on the island that much nicer. Great value on the beach.
