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

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

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

Me and my wife had a lot of luck to meet these two wonderful people, John and Mandy, which from the first second were like friends. They really know how to treat a guest and they took care of us like we were their family. We strongly recommend their place to anyone coming to Holbox. It was an awesome place,... More
