A fantastic beach house right at sea. The view from the rooms is amazing and it's very quite and relaxing. This is definetely one of the best spots on all of Isla Holbox. The owners John and Mandy are very nice and open people who will love to tell you everything you want to know about the island. Breakfast is... More

We had the pleasure of staying for 4 nights with John and Mandy who own , run, take care of and live at the resort . They are wonderful people who are sincerely concerned about looking after you while you are on holidays . The rooms have everything that a person would need for a beachside holiday. We felt very...

The location is quiet and peaceful but walking distance from all the shops and restaurants. Our suite was perfect. It had all you need, perfectly clean with a big balcony with ocean view. Just amazing. Its... More

Isla Holbox and the Guesthouse Apartments are the perfect combination. Hosts Mandy and John are such lovely people and do everything to make your stay perfect. The suites are immaculate, very large and comfortable. They are in a very quiet area and the beachfront is superb - lovely for lounging and enjoying the sea. One of the best places for... More

We were on our 2nd - two week trip to Isla Murjeres. I had heard about Holbox thru trip adviser Saw people were saying that Holbox was like Isla Murjeres 20 years ago That really attracted us. We love Isla especially the beaches but we were very curious about Holbox. We have gone to Puerto Morales a couple times and... More

We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. If you are lucky enough to find an opening book this place immediately! The location on the beach is perfection. Plenty of quiet but a very short walk to the center of town for restaurants and shopping. Breakfast is included at your choice of 2 places. We had the 2... More

We visited Guesthouse Apartments at the end of April and it was the best vacation we have ever had. There are only 3 units in the house, not including the hosts', John and Mandy, which makes it extremely private. Perfect for us! We're not antisocial, but we do like our privacy. Its only three blocks from town; again, perfect. We... More

I feel like I stayed in the very best place that Holbox Island has to offer. The accomodations were amazing. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed. They have thought of every little detail that you could imagine. In addition to total comfort, and great location, the owners, John and Mandy, really make this place exceptional. They are amazingly kind,... More

What a lovely adventure we had getting to, staying at, and saying good~bye to Holbox. It is a 4 hour journey from the Cancun Airport, but well worth it!! We were shuttled to the ferry and then road a "taxi" to our "home away from home" on white sand roads in the dark. We were greeted by John, our kind... More
