Very, very nice people to take care of you during your stay. Lovely island without seaweed. Nice and clean hotel, very quaint atmosphere and great beach area. Just a quick little walk to the downtown area, actually just right around the corner. Would stay here again and highly recommend La Palapa and Holbox as a vacation destination.

Amazing place, well finished bedrooms, quite and relaxing typical furniture in the rooms, very nice shower with shell as foucet, no restaurant service but nice place to have breakfast sunbeds are really comfortable, towels are free and clean every day, cost is balanced with the service

Stayed here for 3 days at the end of July 2015. Beach was great. Clean, calm and seaweed was at a minimum. Food was ok but there are some excellent options very nearby to eat. Room was clean, A/C worked but we had a leak on the roof of our balcony and we had heavy rain for an entire day.... More

The hotel is very clean and very beautiful. The location is very good. It is only a few blocks from the central of town. We wished we can stay longer. The only problem is there are mosquito in the shade even day time, but if you have the mosquito repellent to spray on your legs and hands, then you are... More

Great relaxed hotel with one of the best beachfronts in Holbox. This hotel has a nice Carribean and authentic feel to it. Our room was clean and decent but nothing fancy. Only flipside is the bathroom door - if you a the "sensitive" sort you might want to step out while your partner visits the toilet. Most of the hotels... More

From our room we can see the beach. There's proper hot water. The fan and air conditioning operating together kept the room cool enough. The twin bed was small for too people. There was no mosquito net. In the whole room there were only 2 power sockets and it's a challenge to keep all our devices and cameras charged. The... More

My family and I (2 kids and 2 adults) stayed at La Palapa for 4 nights in late June 2015. We had never been to Holbox and were very glad we had chosen to stay at La Palapa. I think it is one of the nicest hotels on the island. The hotel is relatively small, which is nice, it is... More

Very nice little hotel right on the beach-front. We stayed in the travelers-room (no balcony), but we needed a room with room for 3 adults, and for that it was perfect. The breakfast is served in the small beach restaurant/bar right on the beach. Is very lovely. The beach in from of the hotel is very beautifully and no rocks,... More

This little place is in a great spot overlooking the beach and is in a nice position to the night life - not too far away from the centre but just enough of a distance to avoid the lights and music from the bars on the main strip. The hotel was really quiet and we loved the style of the... More

We are having a very nice stay at La Palapa. All the staff is extremely friendly, and easy going. The rooms are nice and clean, just as expected. Good water pressure in the shower, nice bed, and great little kitchen in the room. The room is cleaned very well daily. They do have a little Restaurant for breakfast, but they... More
