I was not expecting much upon arrival. This was truly a last-second stop and go. To tell you the truth, I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms were clean, the staff is friendly, and it was close to everything. If you're expecting a resort-style hotel, look elsewhere. Though, if you're the adventurous traveler type and will be using this as a... More

... and want to have a fun, wild travel with your friends. You can party all night and the front desk won't do a thing about it. Not so good if you just want to have a nice, relaxing holidays and a full night sleep before returning to the beutiful beach at holbox.

Hotel Casa Barbara was good value for money but a short walk to beach. Clean, air conditioning and continental breakfast. They have tv but nothing to Watch in English, weather channel good info. No safe in room which I feel is necessary on vacation, had to carry money around just in case.

It is located a couple blocks away from the ferry station that brings you to Holbox from Chiquila and it is also a few blocks away from the main square where most og the restaurants and the bars are at....

Hotel Casa Barbara is a great place to relax and unwind in Holbox. We stayed at Casa Barbara while in Holbox for the whale shark tours. Holbox is a "lively" little island with a nightlife that happens well into the morning hours(in fact the island only seems to "wake up" around 8-9pm). There are lots of gas powered golf carts...

Hotel Casa Barbara was a nice, sleepy hotel that adequately met our needs. It does have a nice pool, although the mosquitoes were a bit of a problem. Nicely landscaped and enclosed. Appears better suited to families with smaller children. We would have preferred at least a limited bar. It is located just North of the ferry. It is easy... More

Hotel Casa Barbara is a nicely landscaped hotel, tucked away in a quiet area of the town. It's only a short walk to the beach, and restaurants are right out the front door. But the difference in price between Casa Barbara and the beachfront hotels make this well worth a second look. Large, clean rooms, nice pool, and pleasant staff.

I stayed there for 4 nights and I loved it , the pool is so nice I really enjoyed, the rooms are nice, the bathrooms maybe a little too small, the gardens and the hamacas so nice to sit and relax and the Hotel is in a good location close to the Ferry and restaurants.
