My word there are SO many places to choose from. My hubby and I will be there and we really want a clean nice place to stay.Maybe a family owned place, not too noisey. We are not into the all-incusive stuff. AC& kitchenette would be good, Plan on spening money on excursions.

I'm sure there is already a thread.

Please let me in on the great places in san pedro!!

You're right, lots 'n lots of places.

One way to cut out some of the lodging choices is to decide where on the island you want to stay. North of the bridge, south of town, or "in town".

This link will being up a map, with click-able links to lodging.


I'd suggest "in town" or on the edges aka a short walk on the beach.

IMHO needing to hop in a boat or ride a golf cart to town, takes a lot of the spontaneous "events" (like going for ice cream) out of the equation.

Have a GREAT time!

The Blue Tang is on the North edge of town & has every thing you are looking for. Great staff & free breakfast.

I am a banana beach fan! On site restaurant, bar, excellent staff, travel shop with very experienced personnel, pools, clean rooms or suites, etc.

Of course, the amount you are willing to pay is going to play a role in where you choose, but there are great places in any price range!

Above all don't stress it! If you are anything like me, you won't spend much time in your room. Have a great time.
It's great to be .....
