The elements of this hotel are all very good: rustic but clean & tidy palapas to stay in, beautifully kept gardens and grounds, a lovely pool, beautiful cabanas on the beach, delicious home cooked food (every meal we had was literally awesome - home cooked and delicious) and a really idyllic setting. We could have sat in the cantina and... More

Looking for a place "off the beaten path" we came to Holbox and Palapas del Sol. We loved being outside of town and a lovely walk along the beach to get to town but stayed "home" more often as the food was excellent. We were worried about biting bugs after reading other reviews but had only a few "noseeums" as... More

We just got back from a week in Palapas del Sol and wished we could have stayed much, much longer. They have the best beach, friendliest staff, great food any time and Adriana is the best host making sure you have everything required for a memorable vacation spot. After looking at all the hotels in this area, we chose Palapas... More

Just ended our first trip to Holbox, we've wanted to go for 20 years but it never worked out before this year. Needless to say we investigated every property on the island but Palapas del Sol hit all our marks & when we got there we were so happy we picked it. Small & intimate, fantastic service & great food,... More

The Palapas del Sol is a very nice Place to stay. It's very familiar with an excellent team around Martin (Manager) and Estella (Cook). They work very hard to fullfil all your needs. We never experienced such a relaxed and trustfull hotel environment before. Estella cooks all day long on a very high level! You can have dinner at Palapas... More

We just ended our stay at Palapas del Sol and the days we spent there were incredible. The heart and soul of this sweet spot is Adriana. She is, without a doubt, the kindest, most caring and incredible person. We saw her tear up as guests left, a genuine emotion that stemmed from her love of what she does. Her... More

After a long journey to Cancun, our transportation to Holbox was exactly as Adriana had arranged and explained. On arriving at Holbox, I really just wanted to land so I wasn't quite sure when we were told to have a seat and they would explain how things were done. To my pleasant surprise, we were given a most welcome cold... More

I have been vacationing in Holbox for several years. Discovered "Palapas del Sol" by accident last week. I won't be looking for other options now. Wonderful accomodation but really laid back atmosphere, you're suddlenly surrounded by friends (guests too). And despite the "laid back", service is great, food is exceptionally fresh and well-prepared for Quintana Roo, all very clean. Holbox... More

2 nights. great service, amazing location. Our biggest surprise: the food was amazing and very very fresh, better than restaurants downtown. Excellent mango margaritas. Only less-than-great: there was a bunch of brown algae on the beach. Only an issue to get in the water. Outside of that, really great. Kids loved it, pool, sand area around hamacas for parents is...

My boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in October. As it was low season we had the place to ourselves and it really didn't disappoint. Firstly, this is a very small hotel and I can't recommend it enough. We had breakfast included in our nightly rate and it was really delicious. The hotel is run by Martin, who is just... More
