Perfect central location on the beach and two short blocks from the town square and all the restaurants. Amaiti is nothing fancy but perfect because a trip to Holbox should be about relaxing and enjoying the nature that surrounds you. Room was basic, but very clean, good water pressure and nice products. I think all of the rooms have balconies... More

Went and spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel. My husband went flyfishing and I went shell hunting and laying on the beach. The water was beautiful and there were no Mosquitos. We were right on the beach and just a block from the square. Just wish the bed was bigger.

We really wanted to like it here. However, we could not. Some of the things where not the fault of the hotel but had a very negative impact on our stay and mean we won't be coming back nor recommend the place. On arrival we were greeted by Moises, one of the two guys in charge of reception (management?). He... More

Nice hotel with kind staff and good food. Close to the beach and the center of town. The beach outside the hotel gets a lot of sun and the hotel bar make fine drinks! Lots of good restaurants nearby, just a minute walking from the hotel. A local minisupermarket is located just behind the hotel. In all its a very... More

This was our second trip to Holbox, and our first stay at Amaite. To sum up our experience in one word is easy - wonderful. We love being on the beach and just a couple blocks from the town square. The rooms include a dresser and small closet, and there is storage space in the bath, which we appreciated for... More

This place was perfect for a quiet beach week. As my boyfriend said, just enough adventure, as Holbox it is slightly off the beaten path, and very easy-going vacation. Amaite was great for us, basic rooms and very clean. Excellent staff who are very helpful. Lovely, well-kept beach area and bar. We only had lunch at the hotel - fresh... More

The beach in front of the Amaite hotel is one of the best in Holbox. In the evenings it is decorated with lights and lanterns and during the day it is a secluded and private oasis, claimed only by the residents at the hotel. You will always have your very own sunbed under a shadowy palm tree. The rooms are... More

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
