We came up here for sunset on a number of occasions and loved it. The cocktail menu was extensive and they had lost of unique cocktails. Each cocktail we had was so tasty, hard to beat. They had a pool and cool music to watch the sunset to. It can get quite windy up there though so be warned.

Really lovely spot to watch the sunset. The bar has a good vibe, great cocktails and lovely friendly service. We didn't stay here but the decor on the way up the stairs was great. It looks like a cute place to be based and handy for the town square

What made our stay there so nice was a girl named Elvia argaez which works at the reception. She helped us alot, gave us advice about stuff we can do in the island, resturnats, bicycle rental...

The Hotel has a high standard and is directly situated in Holbox-downtown. The Hotel is run by a great young woman from Mexico City and she speaks a perfect English... this differs her form the rest of ...Mexico. She was friendly and helped where she could. During the night there is a night-bar on the roof of the hotel, playing... More

The bar at the Hotel Arena is outstanding! They have the best view of Holbox Isla, play contemporary music and their drinks are nice and cold. The atmosphere is terrific in this off-the-beaten-path location. We did not stay at the hotel but the bar which is on the top floor is completely open overlooking the entire island. Great for people... More

I went this past March, and the Hotel is better than the pictures I saw on the web... What I most look for in a hotel is cleanliness not so much luxury... it a modest hotel, but very very clean. It is located just across from the main plaza... two mini blocks away from the beach... restaurants, taxi and mini... More

Affordable luxury at the end of a backpacking trip. Room was lovely, and great value. Balcony overlooking the square was great for evening drinks and people watching. Roof terrace bar was great. Staff were lovely and very very helpful. I locked the key to my safe in my safe (like an idiot) with passports and money in there. They went... More

I ALWAYS wear ear plugs down in the Yucatan. People do complain of noise from the bar. Holbox is much more commercialized that I had envisioned and prices are high due to its island location. Our room was clean.

Wide stairs lead to the 2nd floor rooms. The registration desk and a shop are beneath on main level.The rooms are plain but nice and clean. The pillow-top bed is very comfortable and a.c. quiet. A jacuzzi type 10' round pool is on the roof with a (pricey) bar. You get a good view of the town, and sunsets which... More
