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 spent a week here in March 2013 and liked it so much we booked 11 nights over Christmas and New Year's. Much busier this visit and the no see ums were problematic (next time we will start taking vitamin B1 and garlic supplements well in advance), but we had a wonderful time and will return as soon as we...

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

We had the pleasure of a return trip and were not disappointed. We tried a new twist this time and - with the gracious support of the Hotel owner Adrianna - we arranged for pick-up at the airport in Cancun and then rode in a private taxi all the way to our favorite island getaway. The price needs to be... More

Thank you to the wonderful Palapas Del Sol family. Our stay was picture perfect and we were treated with hospitality, warmth and generosity. This lovely, small retreat from the world is hosted by Samuel and Estella who work incredibly hard to keep you comfortable, fed like royalty yet feeling part of their extended family. Martin is incredible and was always... More
