Simple, unpretentious small hotel in the best part of Holbox beach, with a lovely pool. Hammocks and beds are scattered around the beautifully maintained beach front, immediately inviting you to take off your shoes, relax and focus on the incredible colours of the water and sky, and the perfect views of the spectacular sunsets. Rooms are simple, spacious, air conditioned... More

Like a previous reviewer stated, this location is not for everyone. But absolutely fantastic if you are not expecting glamorous, luxurious accommodations. Service and staff are wonderful, views are great, food is simple, excellent and fresh. It is a laid-back but fabulous experience. You couldn't feel more at home than you do at Palapas del Sol. After vacationing here,I may... More

This hotel is everything it promised to be. It is very well (family) run. You feel like the hotel is open specifically for you. So much so, you just walk in the kitchen and can get your own sodas, water or alcoholic drinks if you like and mark down what you took on your tab. Beautiful beach and pool. You... More

It might not be for everyone: If you look for luxury, if you look for parties, if you look for waiters standing next to you ready to serve your next drink, don't go here! Palapas del Sol is your home away from home. Martin makes you feel that way right from the beginning. Just take out of the fridge whatever... More

The other reviews say it all. Palapas is about a 20min walk from the main hub of Holbox but, with the good food, attentive staff and wonderful facilities, you needn't leave at all. The best thing about it, apart from the great service, is the beach - it's (strangely) the ONLY hotel beach on the island that gets cleaned every... More

We stayed here for 2 fabulous nights. Everything about this place was just spot on. The vibe, the decor, the generosity, the tranquility, the shaded pool in the center, the sea view, the decor of the rooms... Even the availability of the wifi :) The staff is so friendly. This is how isla holbox should be experienced. A must!

Pure paradise! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like we were at home, after 22hrs travelling Martin was simply incredible with his warm welcome and friendly nature.

I will confirm all of the other stellar reviews and add just a short personal account. Martin greeted us upon our arrival and made us feel comfortable immediately; his service throughout the trip was stellar. Maria and Estela (along with several others) worked non-stop, producing the most delicious meals; we only ventured out for dinner once and agreed that their... More

My mom and I stayed here for a week in January 2014. This hotelito could not have been more perfect as all the other reviews attest to. Location: east of the main drag of beach hotels on one of the most pristine parts of the beach. Food: delicious! No need to leave the comforts of Palapas as Maria, Estelle ans... More
