2nd stay @ Ruby's in late August, 2010. Had another great experience. Stayed in Room #12 (third floor @ the top of the stairs). No AC, but didn't need it as the breeze off the ocean was famous. Met so many great people who were staying at the hotel as well. Really didn't spend alot of time @ the hotel--other...

Stayed at Ruby's for 3 nights after it was recommended to us by different locals. We were looking for somewhere after we stayed the first night at Pedro's Hotel/Inn (which is an overrated hole!) The rooms at Ruby's were almost half the price, clean, comfortable, large and centrally located. Staff were very friendly and it us locally owned! Keep up...

We needed a place to rest our heads while exploring the island. The room was clean, large and the bed was so comforable for a good nights sleep! The location was right in the middle of everything! The highlight for us was the deck where we drank many Belikins before going out to dinner or heading to Crazy Cunucks to...

Stayed @ Ruby's in November of 2010. Will be staying there again in September. Has a great 3rd floor balcony--which is a great place, I might add, to meet new friends. My first night there. I stopped up there to relax before going to bed. Well, two very nice ladies from the East Coast were up there and they invited...

Ruby's suited us perfectly. It was central to all that we wished to do during our stay on the island. The students felt safe, they were close to a full range of places to eat and play, and we were just the shortest of suitcase-drags from San Pedro Express. The rooms were clean and Tiffany at reception could not have...

Ruby's isn't a Marriott, but it has a sweet charm and is run by a family that lives on the Caye. Very clean, nice rooms, and nice people. If you want to more a part of the town I'd recommend you stay here.

This place is as described by all the reviews I read. Some people focus on the shabbiness of the building, but hey, for $30-45/ night right on the beach? And the people were great, helpful, and accomodating. Compared to the other places at three to four times the price, we thought it was fine. Wifi works out on the front...

A clean, well-maintained hostel, with prices a tad below average. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable, but quite minimal otherwise. We stayed in a private room, though for the price we expected a bit more in terms of facilities. The upstairs rooms are more expensive for a sea view. The only problem we encountered was the noise. The...

I can't say enough good things about Ruby's. First of all, the price; it is by far the most inexpensive place we found on the island. And that's just the beginning. We rented a wonderful, simple room on the 3rd floor overlooking the Caribbean for an unbelievable price. For those wanting luxury accomodations, please do go elsewhere, because part of...
