Close to everything. Perfect little hotel right on the island with private bath. Has a nice courtyard with chairs & hammocks as well as... More

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.

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....
