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

After a long journey to Cancun, our transportation to Holbox was exactly as Adriana had arranged and explained. On arriving at Holbox, I really just wanted to land so I wasn't quite sure when we were told to have a seat and they would explain how things were done. To my pleasant surprise, we were given a most welcome cold... More

I have been vacationing in Holbox for several years. Discovered "Palapas del Sol" by accident last week. I won't be looking for other options now. Wonderful accomodation but really laid back atmosphere, you're suddlenly surrounded by friends (guests too). And despite the "laid back", service is great, food is exceptionally fresh and well-prepared for Quintana Roo, all very clean. Holbox... More

2 nights. great service, amazing location. Our biggest surprise: the food was amazing and very very fresh, better than restaurants downtown. Excellent mango margaritas. Only less-than-great: there was a bunch of brown algae on the beach. Only an issue to get in the water. Outside of that, really great. Kids loved it, pool, sand area around hamacas for parents is...

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
