Hola todo el mundo. Amaite es perfecto otra vez. Or something like that. I am still working my my Spanish, obviously, and I can think of no better way to do so than going back to Isla de Holbox. Once again, Amaite was a perfect choice for my Princess and I to get away from life's stresses and demands and... More

We stayed at this boutique hotel Sept 15, 2014. It is absolutely fantastic. The staff are wonderful, the rooms are spacious , have A/C and very clean and cared for. Very rustic, Holboxian way of decorating is seen throughout the property. We had a three bedroom suite on the main floor which had a gated courtyard that led to the... More

It can be a little difficult to rate hotels in Holbox. We have stayed at 4 different hotels in Holbox, all at different price points, so I will be as objective as possible. The hotel is located in a great location - right at the edge of "town", so very convenient for restaurants, shops etc... However this also means there... More

First off, we were a bit nervous about making a reservation because the Amaite Hotel website does not show photos inside all the types of rooms. But I am really glad we gave it a try. We stayed in one of the apartment style suites with our family of 4. There were 3 bedrooms, a big but simple living area,... More

We are a family of 5 and this place worked great. Beautiful beach, great food ,friendly service. Walking distance to everywhere in town. It is a simple non pretentious great place. They are still working on completing an upgrade of the whole hotel, and perhaps the lack of complete functionality of the toilet would be my only 'but'. Still, I... More

We chose Holbox as our honeymoon destination. It was exactly what we were looking for. A paradise far from the busy lifestyle we live in NYC! The hotel is a perfect place to stay. You feel a part of island while having still having your basic needs, great running water, air conditioning, and we loved the firm beds. The service... More

This hotel is quaint and relatively 'basic'. The rooms were perfectly clean and well air conditioned. There was a nice fruit basket in the room. Location was perfect with a beautiful ocean view. Service was top notch. I'd stay here again. Note: beds are definitely 'hard'.

We spent two nights in this hotel, the rooms are rustic like the area demand. They clean it every day. No tv and the bed was a little hard, no soft at all.Our balcony was exactly ocean front, the view in the morning is amazing. A lot of birds flying all around make you feel in paradise. Our one year... More

A luxurious hotel at a most affordable price. Perfect location. Wonderful service. The beach is ten steps away from your room. The main street of soft sand and tasty food is right there. Relaxing and peaceful.

We didn't stay at the Amaite Hotel but we did eat in the restaurant there. It was our last night in Holbox and we wanted a special meal to end our vacation. We walked around looking at the various restaurants and dismissing them and settled on Casa Nostra which happened to be closed that night. So, we started walking up... More
