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

My husband, myself and our eleven year old son have only great things to say about Holbox Apartments and the pleasant hospitality of John & Mandy. John and Mandy really made us feel welcome and right at home. You can not ask for more gracious and knowledgable hosts. They know the in's and out's of this beautiful island and are... More

What a beautiful, relaxing place to stay! We're already planning to come back next year. John and Mandy are wonderful hosts, so helpful, kind and warm. The upstairs ocean view room is incredible! 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

My wife Birgitta and I came to Mexico to visit our youngest daughter Felicia, who lives and works in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas. She picked Holbox Island as a quiet place for us to stay, knowing that my wife and I would not like the high-rise and show-biz scene in Cancun. How right she was. We arrived from Cancun by taxi...

Friendly, clean and as advertised. We didn't actually stay because we couldn't get a refund from Casa De Los Angeles which was a pit.The owners went out of their way to try and help us and showed us several rooms that were beautiful, clean and with terrific views, clearly they care for the property.

The apartments are spacious, clean, comfortable and have great privacy,even the soaps you get are great (organic, soft and smell lovely), the apartments common areas are very well cared, the hotel is near from a wonderful beach and also near the center of the island. The managers are very helpful, friendly, warm and professional.

The owners organised transport to and from Holbox and a whale shark tour. Craig and his partner (the managers) met us on arrival, were friendly and helpful and provided advice on the best places to eat etc. The apartment was clean, well appointed and comfortable, in a great location next to the beach. The apartments are quiet, private but only... More

We stayed at Holbox Apartments last July and we had a wonderful time there. The location is perfect, and the apartments are perfectly equipped, with a personal touch giving us the feeling that we were at home. We really felt that we were coming back home after a long trip abroad. The managers welcomed us in the most friendly manner... More

I stayed at Holbox Apartments and had a lovely weekend. The apartments are beachfront, and close to everything. The caretakers were very kind and helped me with anything I needed. I was travelling alone but felt very safe due to the caretakers. I would advise this hotel to anyone visiting Holbox.
