We spent 2 days at La Palapa. It is truly a small paradise. When we arrived it was raining, but even then we saw how beautiful the hotel was. When we got out of the buggy the staff came out right away to help us with our bags. The staff (Israel) was very friendly. We slept in room nr 8.... More

My friend and I took a short holiday a couple of weeks ago and it was a Fantastic experience. We will definitely go back and stay in the same place. We appreciated a lot the service given by all the owners and the staff. I also wanted to add that I forgot my wallet somewhere in the beach one night... More

The hotel is quite, next to the beach. For eating the main square is just 2 streets away. We relaxed a lot there, only in the back there was a restaurant with loud music but we didn't hear it from the beach or the room. The breakfast was very poor, only 2 toasts and a muffin... We had dinner there... 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
