I had never heard of Holbox before until I saw an article in a travel magazine talking about boutique hotels. I was in love after finding this tiny hidden island. Those tired of the typical Mexican all inclusive resorts and packed beaches with annoying loud tourists, Holbox is the place for you. Although I hesitate to invite you to visit,... More

I have always stayed at Villas Paraiso and didn't like taking the chance on something else, but so glad I did. Beautiful penthouse room for great value, super attentive staff, and on one of the best beaches on Holbox. The bed felt inicially too hard but ended up being comfortable. Careful of scorpions...though these ones are harmless. One snuck into... More

We didn't know what to expect and were so pleasantly surprised. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to be out of the mainstream and looking for some peace and quiet to decompress. The beach is perfect and the service is friendly and very helpful.

We're already planning our return to Casa Takywara for next March. The rooms are airy, open and very clean. The garden and beach are splendid and have a variety of places both in the sun or shade to relax. We found the other guests to be friendly and inviting, but not intrusive. The staff members were efficient, friendly, and very... More

This was an amazing place to stay on the lovely island of Holbox. Marcela and Lupe were so helpful at every point, making our stay peaceful and restful. They think of all kinds of small details to make your stay restorative. It is away from the bustle (such as it is) of the downtown area, so that you feel a... More

Since there are virtually no cars on the island, we were taken to the hotel by golf cart. We passed through the square, the hotels with bars, crowds, and purple-colored pools. And we kept going. Though the hotel is an easy walk to downtown, it feels totally separated, as if in a tranquil place that only occasional wanderers venture to.... More

The experience in Takywara was ver nice. We spent NYE there and was really good. Berta, Lupe and Marcela pay attention to the small details and help so that the experience is personal and lovely. Ask for the Sol room, it is very nice and the view is really something.

My husband and I spent the first half of our honeymoon on Isla Holbox, and we had a perfect stay at Casa Takywara. The hotel is gorgeous, calm, quiet, well-located, and the staff are so kind and courteous. Lupe and Marcela helped make our visit to Holbox memorable by helping us arrange outings and tours. It was so easy to... More

We were able to be in the bungalow on the beach. It was quiet, private and very comfortable. Breakfast was delivered to our porch every morning at 8:30. The bread was warm and delicious and the fresh fruit was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and efficient. It was a great place to relax, read, and wander the beach. We... More
