Ruby's Review

Budget-minded travelers flock to this simple hotel on the beach at the south end of town. There are some drawbacks, but on an otherwise fairly expensive island the price is right here. The original rooms have fans and private bath, facing the street. On the sea-side there are air-conditioned rooms with private baths. Book ahead, as Ruby's is often full. The hotel's little restaurant, Ruby's Café, opens early for the fishing and diving crowd.

    Budget Means BUDGET

    If you're an experienced "rough" traveller and can do without mod-cons Ruby's is a great deal. Those who require a bit more in the way of amenities or cleanliness, or are travelling with children might do well to consider another of the reasonably priced options available. During our time in San Pedro we spent more time in our room than we had initially anticipated - poor weather - and found the sand on the floor, weak water pressure and dubious particleboard walls to be a bit wearisome. Had we been out and about all day every day though, as originally planned, I doubt we would have noticed!
