me and my boyfriend just retourned from a Fantastic holiday in the enchanted island of Holbox. The island is so beautiful unspoilt and colourful that is hard to stay indoor but our choice of accomodation was so perfect that we really enjoyed our time in as well. We stayed at La Palapa Ethno Boutique and we only have positive feedback.... More

We stayed at la palapa for a month. So we really got to know the place, the staff and the island. In one word " amazing". We travelled with two kids under 7, and the staff made everything easy. Our room was on the beach so we could watch the kids make sandcastles while we swung on the hammocks. Our... More

La Palapa was a brilliant choice for our stay atHolbox: perfect location, very helpful staff, clean, spacious and beautiful rooms. The beachside restaurant is also great - amazing food, a Sicilian chef and delicious dishes from breakfast to dinner!

Restaurant is expensive and attention regular, the waiter told us that we couldn't take a table near the beach because it would take him 20 minutes to clean it up! Internet connection is really bad. We asked for a massage and it arrive 30 minutes late. No tv on the rooms.

We booked 4 nites at this hotel through groupon. We ended up being a group of 11 as we had friends and family who decided last minute to come with us. When we arrived, the hotel rate offered to our friends was cheaper than our groupon. That was somewhat disappointing. However, the manager was very nice, very gracious and did... More

Our entire experience at La Palapa could not have been better. Our room (#16) boasted a small balcony overlooking the sea and treetop views via two entire sides of windows -- palm trees swaying in the island breezes. Staff was helpful, friendly, and attentive. The food being magnificent (and overseen by chef/owner Beppe) was most definitely an unexpected bonus. The... More

For the first time ever, we come back to a place and hotel - simply because our last stay was perfect. My boyfriend and I stayed seven nights at Hotel La Palapa at Holbox February 2013. We had a fantastic stay there. The hotel has a cozy, romantic and very homely atmosphere. The room was very good - the best... More

We stayed in room 11 which is on the top floor. The room was plenty big but it doesn,t have a balcony. All the top floors do not have balconies. However if they did have a balcony you couldn,t see the water anyway because the palm trees obstruct your view. Our friends stayed in room 10 which is on the... More

La Palapa Hotel is located not too far from the town plaza and boasts a great view of the ocean partially obstructed by palm trees. Unfortunately, the weather was windy, clouded and raining. Apparently during winter massive amounts of algae cover the beach front and the local government forbids hotels from removing it. That was what the front desk staff... More
