Absolutely the BEST value in San Pedro!


Reviewed June 4, 2013

I am not a luxury driven traveler whose dream vacation is a miss placed version of Disneyland. I want to experience the island and interact with the local culture and other travelers… the Holiday Hotel is the perfect place to do all that and more! Owned by one of the oldest, most established & respected San Pedro families… the hotel has been updated, is clean and perfectly appointed. No detail has been overlooked and you will find everything you could possibly need here. The rooms are bright, meticulous and secure. There are beach lounge areas that are low fenced off to provide a bit of privacy and a barrier of sort from over zealous vendors without making you feel isolated. The beach is delightful, clean and the sea grass is well cleared for a bit of swimming… in fact more so than some of the more upscale, pricier resorts I have seen.

The restaurant and bar are fantastic… great food, excellent service with comfortable and inviting sofa sitting areas. The WIFI is excellent… and available to you as a guest. The service all across the board is OUTSTANDING. Everyone is accommodating and as pleasant as can be. The only non-positive aspect I could possibly point out to you is that you will be exposed to the evening music playing at the neighboring bars. Personally, that doesn’t bother me… so isn’t a deal breaker for me.

This truly is San Pedro at it’s most real and very best. For the traveler that is on a reasonable budget, who wants a pleasant lodging experience in a fantastic location you can do no better than the Holiday Hotel. I wouldn’t even consider staying anywhere else while in Ambergris Caye! When I am in San Pedro… I consider the Holiday Hotel my home and that is precisely how it feels.
