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 are pretty basic, and no AC in the hut we booked, but the fan and ocean breeze are all you need. Would definitely stay there again if I go back.

Stayed: August 2015

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 the loud music and overall business.

The dock in front of the hotel was amazing. Shallow enough to swim and we would go out every night to star gaze.

the grounds were nicely upkept and beautiful.

The staff was incredibly friendly.
The air conditioning worked great.

The bad:
The bed was incredibly uncomfortable. The mattress we had was REALLY old. In fact, I tried not to think about what I was sleeping on.

The wifi didn't work in the room for about half the trip.

we had warm water the first night in the shower, but not the other four nights. Which I ended up feeling okay about, but my husband and our other friends were not a fan.

We went with another couple, and though our room was fine, only one outlet worked in their room. We had mini fridges, but theirs didn't work because of the lack of outlets.

Overall, it wasn't a bad experience, but I am not sure I would stay in those rooms again. It wasn't a bad value for the price that we paid.

Room Tip: seems like the cabana rooms are nicer, but they don't have A/C

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 conditioned and he moved us to one of them. The rooms are very clean and so are the grounds. The view is beautiful. If you are looking for someone to take you out on his boat to snorkel or explore there was a wonderful man that lived just down from the hotel, his name is Laji Nunez and he was wonderful. He made out trip. Javier introduced us to him.

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, which I wish I had known about before because my previously made choices were not the best. There is a hammock for reading while looking at the water, refrigerator in the rooms, and wifi. The staff is attentive, the rooms clean, and the price was great.
