If you are looking for a resort-style place to stay - pool, wifi, drinks and food on hand - this is quite nice. We had been hoping for a more rustic experience (which we had at Casa Takywara), but everybody's different. The staff is helpful and excellent (three cheers for Eddie!), the rooms pretty but simple, the restaurant quite good... More

Dear guest, thank you very much for your comment. We strive always to accommodate our guests, and also try to ensure a quiet stay on idyllic Holbox. In the near future a project is done by all hoteliers on the northern side of the beach of the island to move the motorised traffic to the back of all properties, and... More

My wife and I spent Christmas time in Holbox and given the amazing stay in a different hotel two years ago, we were thrilled to return to the island. Following the excellent reviews, our choice was made for Palapas del Sol. However, the four days in Holbox left us with somewhat of mixed feelings. On a positive note, the rooms... More

Right on the beach and away from the crowds. Rooms designed in a way to have privacy. Homely with lovely service. Honesty bar which is great - just grab what you want and write it down to be added up at the end. Arrived and welcomed with a big cold drink to welcome you. Excellent menu with reasonable prices to... More

Good experience in general. The grounds and the rooms were perfect, food( vegetarian options) so so, staff nice and friendly , but manager lacking basic customer service skills and organization. We arrived at the hotel in the morning, and all we were told by the manager that the check in is actually at 3pm and a blank stare. He didn’t... More

The girlfriend and I had a great time. Very relaxing and hands down the best food on the island! I almost felt disappointed eating anywhere else! The beers are reasonable $35 pesos (~$2.25 USD) as are the drinks and the food unless your getting the lobster pasta which is still under $20. The rooms are comfortable and very traditionally decorated.... More

Fabulous place- THE place to stay in Holbox. The food was so fresh, cocktails were delicious and staff were so so sweet! We ventured to a few other hotels for some drinks and food and they weren't a patch on Palapas Del Sol! All the hotels are quite far away from the sea in comparison, this was literally a stone/shell... More

The Papalas del Sol afforded a spotless room and grounds, a lovely pool, a nice view of the sea, and a friendly, helpful staff. Isla Holbox is definitely off the beaten path and is a great place to hibernate away from the hustle and bustle. Very little English is spoken so be prepared for this if you do not speak... More

Took our bags, set us down and serves some hot empanadas and cocktails, all the check in stuff came much later. The resort is amazing, pool, beach, delicious (!!!!) food and drinks, very quite,...

We loved this place! My boyfriend and I had booked 6 nights in August and loved it so much we ended up staying for 11 nights. We couldn't have been more pleased with the hotel, the staff, and the location. It's such a chilled out place if you're after a really relaxing break. The honesty bar is a great touch... More
