The apartments are large clean and... More

The apartments themselves are fabulous and excellent value for money. I stayed in one of the top-floor apartments with a large balcony overlooking the beach. Each apartments comes... More

This is a fantastic spot on a beautiful island. Holbox was better than we imagined. John and Mandy were charming hosts; the apartment was large, cool and on the beach. All in all great value and I would recommend this to anyone travelling to the island.

I spent four nights at the Holbox Apartments and hated to leave! The owners, John and Mandy (who come from Amsterdam), have not only made their place a delightful B&B guest home but make any stay there an unforgettable experience, due to their friendliness and their desire to serve and help their guests in any way possible. The house itself... More

Hammocks, inside and out. Comfortable lounge chairs, right outside your door on the balcony overlooking the perfectly groomed area that leads up to beach. We give them... More

This place was absolutely perfect! My husband and 3 1/2 year old daughter and I stayed downstairs in the apartment and then upstairs in the suite over the course of 2 weeks. Both places were clean, well equipped, and comfortable. The apartment downstairs has a full kitchen and two bedrooms, which was very convenient. The upstairs suite is also very... More
