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.

I stayed for 5 nights at Casa Palapas and thought it was wonderful. It´s a very simple hotel, nothing pretentious about it, but it has exactly what you need - generously proportioned, comfortable attractive rooms, air conditioning, hot freshwater showers, wifi everywhere, a nice pool and beautiful beach facilities. The staff are low key but very kind and concerned to... More

We stayed here five nights over Easter and couldn't have been happier. Palapas is a really lovely peaceful little place; simple enough to feel you're really away from it all but with everything you need to be comfortable. The meals are simple, authentic and fresh, the staff are gentle, kind and thoughtful. The sea is the most beautiful I've ever... More

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
