Clean bright large room - Tierra - well-equipped, great decor, spacious and good A/C, shared, but roomy balcony, good views. Nice grounds to chill in and shady loungers on a quiet, lovely beach, where you are often the loan swimmer. Very pretty place. The staff make a special difference. All were charming, helpful and gracious. The funky cool bathroom with... More

We regularly refer to Trip Advisor for all of our accommodation, flight and restaurant recommendations and we have not been disappointed following the advice of other reviewers about Casa Takywara. It is located west of the central town area, but not too far that you can't walk, if you want to, although local golf cart cabs are plentiful and reasonably... More

This was my wife and my second visit to Hotel Takywara in two years. Hotel Takywara is unique from many of the other hotels on Holbox Island in that it is situated in a more private area of the beach but it is also just close enough to town, the restaurants, and the dock so it feels like you're still...

Clean, friendly and spacious, we had a fantastic 10 days here. It is further down the beach from the main town but still a short walk so you feel like you live in a deserted area but still have all the convenience of town. We had the top floor room which had a huge covered balcony with oceanview - sunsets,... More

If you want to have the most spectacular, relaxing time on Holbox, stay here! The staff are wonderfully helpful and kind, but bothersome at all. We stayed in the bungalow right on the beach. We were more than pleased with everything.--Immaculately clean rooms with every detail taken into account. There are hammocks inside and out, beach bags for towels, delicious... More

Holbox was the last stop on our trip around Yucatan. Takywara offers great rooms, fantastic staff and a beautiful beach right infront of the door. If you are looking for a quiet retreat and a place to relax, Takywara is your first choice. The staff is very kind and helpful and it is only a 10 minute walk to the... More

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
