We stayed here for 7 nights in a King room. Room no. 7 on top floor. Huge king bed with very comfortable, firm mattress. Woke to birds singing every morning. Felt like we were in the middle of a jungle! Lovely powerful shower and fresh towels every day. Also got clean beach towels from reception every day. Cant fault Casa... More

Very nice clean and comfortable hotel. Of course, you get what you paid for, but this is the perfect place for nice relaxing vacation. The staff is amazing, the rooms are big, well decorated and with air conditioning. The shower is one of the best shower I had in my life. Breakfast is free and simple, but the coffee and... 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.

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
