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. We were on our honeymoon and we were made to feel very special and were overwhelmed with our room! I almost want to keep it a secret so we... More

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

Our first visit to Holbox and Palapas del Sol, but most likely not our last. This small property (only 8 rooms) is well situated on a beautiful beach with a short walk along the beach (20 minute, .8 miles) to "town". While there were lots of options for lunch and dinner in town, the food and company at PdS gave... More

We have booked the stay at Palapas del Sol 8 months in advance, so the expectation was great and we did not get less than expected. Las Palapas is quite distant from the city center, but the walk pays off the peace of the place, where you can get diconnected from all the city noises and just enjoy the noise... More
