Very nice hotel, quiet with only a few rooms. The rooms are spacious and clean with a terrace and hammac with a view on the beach. Friendly staff, ready to help. Walking distance from Holbox main square where you can find all amenities.

We spent 24 nights, and thourghly enjoyed our stay at La Palapa Hotel. It was in the perfect location on the island, a very short walk to everything we needed. We found La Palapa to be very safe and quiet. The staff was exceptional and assisted us with transportation and information on things to do on Holbox. But beyond that... More

I've booked one night here, thinking I'll check out other hotels when we arrive but this place was just perfect and we stayed for 3 nights. The rooms are clean, bed is great and big, the shower is amazing with good pressure and hot water. The beach is amazing, all rooms are facing the sea. The location is great, close... More

Very nice hotel, the owner, Mr. Lino is a very nice host, as well as the whole staff. The rooms are very clean, and have A/C, which is nice, because of the hot weather. There are other hotels that can be more luxurious and chic, but the personal treatment that you get from all the staff is remarkable. I will... More

Fist, about the hotel, it was nice. I would stay elsewhere next time solely because the guy who runs the restaurant is a complete jerk. We arrived 30 min before the close of the restaurant and wanted to take our drinks back to the rooms with us. He reluctantly agreed and then the next morning, in front of many other... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and absolutely loved the setting, right off the beach with the palm trees all around, making us feel like in paradise.. Our room was very comfortable and we especially loved the balcony! Also we were very pleased with the service, esp. Israel, Antonia and their other front desk colleague, whose name I dont remember!,... More

The worst thing is that when we paid for the accommodation they told us that they were going to... More

It a nice clean hotel, We were put on the third floor, the stairs are very narrow and each step is at a different level. When I say narrow, less then two feet wide. Very hard to carry our luggage up ( no one offered to help). The room was very clean and a nice size, but for the money... More
