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

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

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
