We travelled to Holbox (pronounced Holbosh aooarently) with our 6 year old and 2 year old and were wowed from the first moment we walked into the hotel. It reminded me of other places in Thailand, Indonesia and central america that I used to travel to.. The set up is super relaxed, there is an honor system for getting beers,... More

By proper planning the experience was smooth from the airport to the sign that greeted us from Holbox Adventures to transport my husband and me to the ferry, which was a half hour ride, to our golf cart that delivered us to our thatched hut hotel (with AC) We pinched ourselves daily due to our lovely views of aqua waters...

Fabulous hotel, very family friendly, right on the most beautiful beech on a stunning laid back bare foot island, Sadly am guessing its just a matter of time before the island gets built up and looses it's sand roads and golf buggy taxis. Palapas del Sol was a fabulous place to stay and we couldn't have been happier with our... More

We were closer to the water than most of the hotels, on a very clean and private beach. I loved our beach! Location was perfect for us- away from town- 20 minute walk or a $3 taxi ride. Most rooms had a sea view- although some were blocked by the palm trees or other bungalows. Many (two story) bungalows looked... More

First, of all, I would go back to Holbox Island again and definitely stay at Hotel Casa Palapas del Sol. I can honestly say this because I stayed there and went to visit other properties to see if I could find anything better. For what I wanted, Hotel Casa Palapas del So was the best for me. And here's why:... More

I travel quite a bit, and I am always on the lookout for destinations and hotels that are outside the mainstream, comfortable, honest and unpretentious, and not too expensive. Palapas del Sol hits the mark perfectly - this feels like a place I've been looking for all my life. I love Holbox and I really hope it doesn't get commercialized,... More

The hotel is very good, we were there for 5 days, 4 nights. It was my birthday during our stay and the team made me a fantastic cake and decorated the bed. About 30 mins walk into town but golf cart taxi only 40 pesos. Room was clean, outside area was clean, food was good and reasonably priced as were... More

Excellent location and clean hotel! Extremely quiet and a very relaxing environment. Great free full breakfast and an excellent deal. Small, intimate B&B feel. Only negative is the semi lack of privacy bc the hotel is small but it did not bother us one bit.

I have to agree with JaimeMexico. We just love this place, second visit in a year. The staff: Adrianna/Estrella owners, Martin, Martha and all the gang, what a great crew. There was a girl staying the same time as us who had a stomach virus and they were just terrific trying to help her. The food is great, fresh and... More

From the owners, Adrianna and Estella, to the staff (especially Eddie), the rooms and the grounds, this is a perfect place to relax. That's what you do on Isla Holbox-- get away from it all. Adrianna has a philosophy of working with local Mayans and empowering them. The food is excellent, and the palapas wonderful. Stay here on this island.
