A big THANK YOU to John and Mandy who own Guesthouse - it's a beautiful place, clean and great location on the island. They were SO helpful with our transportation plans, info about the island, as well as providing us a free breakfast every day at a few of the local restaurants. We had plenty of fresh water to drink... More

This was our 2nd time in Holbox but 1st at this location. We will be back! We were treated as friends, not customers. John y Mandy are wonderfully accommodating and shared all their secrets about the island. Place is super clean and comfortable. Transportation from/to airport they arranged was flawless and on time. Voucher system for breakfast and restaurants included... More

This is quite a difficult review as our stay on Holbox actually did not live up to expectations and we actually left early (having booked for two weeks). The problems were not attributable to the accommodation (hence the "excellent rating), however, but due to the weather - there had already been a lot of rain, so the island was covered... More

which I normally should better not recommend. This special place I should better keep as a secret. We stayed here for some nights at the beginning of our MX trip and did not want to leave! The guesthouse is amazingly cosy and nice decorated. Mandy and her husband super friendly and always helpful! We did enjoy every single second in... More

The previous positive reviews are largely correct. To summarize, the owners are friendly and helpful, the rooms are great, beds are comfortable, the place is immaculately well maintained, the beach (and access) is the best on the island, with an incredible amount of space and privacy and shade options. The included breakfast is a voucher for one of three local... More

We had a truly wonderful 8 night stay at the Guesthouse. Other reviewers have commented on the kindness of the owners, John and Mandy. We absolutely concur with those comments, we have never had a warmer welcome or send off from anywhere we have stayed. They are always available to assist their guests and have a lovely sense of humor... More

There's really not much more to add than what all of the prior excellent reviews say. The apartments and grounds are super clean and well maintained inside and out, just a few minutes walk from the (relatively speaking) busier part of the beach. The wifi worked very well as did the shower with plenty of hot water. More importantly, John... More

We had an amazing time staying at the Holbox Apartments. The owners were incredibly helpful, welcoming, and friendly. We had dinner with them on the beach one night at sunset and told stories and laughed all night! I would recommend this wonderful place to everyone. It's beautiful, secluded, and walking distance from anything you might need or want. We felt... More

Holbox is a beautiful setting, and the apartments were incredibly comforting. John and Mandy were not only very accommodating but were very enjoyable to converse with. They taught us a lot about the island and shared it's true beauty with us. Our group rented the entire villa (all three apartments) so it was fun to experience each view they offer.... More
