We had 3 exzellent days at Mandy's and John's little paradise! The sea view suite was amazing and everything was made with so much love! Mandy and John are really great hosts! I can recommend this little paradise to everyone who wants to spend some free and relaxing time within an unique environment and atmosphere!

Mandy and John were incredibly accommodating and went out of their way to make our stay special. The beach is perfect for small children, beautifully soft... More

Holbox is an amazing Island with a very laid back vibe and change of pace from the all inclusive Cancun scene. John and Mandy have created the perfect balance of comfortable accommodation and nature. There are only three rooms on the property.....two upstairs suites with one king size bed each, huge terrace overlooking the ocean and sunset, great bathroom and... More

First off, I fell in love with the grounds and our host, Mandy ! When your playground is the sea and it seems like it belongs to you, happiness is what you feel ! We rented (3 adults) the appartment with full kitchen and 2 rooms. We absolutely loved it, we were comfortable. Breakfast is included in the price at... More

Holbox is a nice island with really friendly and open people! The guesthouse is a nice place with a beautiful view and a friendly owner. It's close to town center and next to the beach. However there were some issues that were pretty annoying. The first one was that the breakfast included isn't actually in the guesthouse itself rather than... More
