Casa Takywara offers one of the most incredible setting, service and accommodations available in the island, without over charging for food, amenities or location. Great option for experiencing Holbox without sacrificing comfort and minutes away from restaurants.

The grounds of this hotel are beautiful - what I'd call "tamed nature". My second floor room was very clean and comfortable. I don't like to use air conditioning, and the room could have used a ceiling fan, as the floor fan provided was noisy and only had one speed. Though it's a ten-minute walk from town, the path along... More

Dear friends Thank you very much for your comments. We'll analize every detail that affects the good service that we always want to offer you. Anyway, it is very important to inform us every detail that doesnt make you feel good. We were able to show you how the fan works or change the fan, but we did not know... More

I loved this place! This is the place to be if you want to relax. The staff was really helpfull and friendly, the room was large and clean. I recommend to stay at the second floor. It is 10 minutes to walk in to the "main street" where you can find restaurants and a few shops.

I am a seasoned traveler, having spent time on most of the world's continents. I have never, anywhere in the world, stayed somewhere as lovely as Casa Takywara. We stayed in the Sol penthouse, and felt we had the whole island to ourselves, for the most part. The kitchen has literally everything you need to feel at home, from a... More

We stayed over a week in Casa Takywara. It is a nice place 10 minutes walk from the Pueblo. We stayed on the first floor and did not have any ocean view. We felt It was an in between an hotel and an apartement rental. However sadly we felt It was not the best part of both worlds. Overall we... More

We stayed recently and had a really lively time, I'm not sure we could have found a better place to stay for 18 days. The staff are all lovely and the house is awesome, only the weather let us down in June but apparently that's pretty normal. I would defiantly reccomend Takywara over one of the bigger hotels especially as... More

Our amazing customer service started before we even landed in Mexico. Marcella was fantastic at communicating with us about our reservations. Upon arrival, we were shown to our room, which was simple but tastefully decorated and very large for our needs. The full kitchenette allowed us to cook simple meals to add to our eating experience on the island. We... More

Casa Takywara was great. Very clean, friendly and QUIET (which for us, was key). It is a very short walk to the town/restaurants/bars/grocery store, the kitchen was very well suited for cooking. We had trouble making our own ice, but the staff was happy to fill our cooler (which they provide for cold ones on the beach). Would definitely go... More
