Clean rooms, between downtown and the ferry port, perfect location. Not need to rent any golf car, few blocks for the beach. Personnel very courteous and nice, filling all our needs. We tray to stay one more night but it was book, reserve the nights you may stay ahead.

I've been going to Isla Holbox for 7 years now. Most of those years I spent at Casa Maya. Casa maya is also a lower priced hotel, but I'm afraid It's going a little downhill in the last 3-4 years. This year I decided to switch it up to CasA Barbara. It was immediately obvious that the Barbara was an... More

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.
