My boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in October. As it was low season we had the place to ourselves and it really didn't disappoint. Firstly, this is a very small hotel and I can't recommend it enough. We had breakfast included in our nightly rate and it was really delicious. The hotel is run by Martin, who is just... More

5 of us stayed here in Sep 2013 and I was just thinking how much I would like to go back! The bungalows were basic but had amazing views and the food was better than anywhere we had in town. We went in Sep to swim with whale sharks, it was definitely one of the most surreal experience and I... More

We spent three days in Holbox at this hotel and it was the best trip I've ever done. Martin and the rest of the staff (literally everyone) offer the perfect balance of attentive service and being left alone. Holbox probably isn't for everyone as it is remote, and "laid back" is an understatement, but on arrival, Martin said his goal... More

After many years I returned to Isla Holbox to be able to show my now seven years old daughter, where I was on vacation before she was born. The island is changing and now there are more services, restaurants, shops and activities and we love it even more! We are staying at Palapas del sol and we are spoiled by... More

This is by far one of the best places I stayed on my trips. Nice hotel, with home atmosphere, right on the beach, with palapa style cabins and very nice room decorated with local themes. Excellent staff, Martin is awesome and goes all the way to fulfill your requests at total satisfaction. We went there to our engagement that also... More

We loved Casa Palapas del Sol. It is right on the beach, and as others have mentioned, it's a little ways off the main strip of hotels so it feels very private, almost like you are the only one on the island! The rooms are basic but comfortable with a/c. As others have said, it's not a full service resort... More

My husband and I spent a week of our honeymoon as Casa Palapas del Sol, and we loved it! Martin was very helpful in helping us figure out transportation and pretty much anything else you needed to know. It's a small place - 14 rooms - and the breakfast (included) and food at the restaurant is always good and reasonably... More

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
