We have been planning to go to Holbox for a few years specifically to see the whale sharks, and finally did. Villas Paraiso came highly recommended despite some negative comments. I now understand both. The resort is small, and the buildings are packed quite close together, which makes for a lot of shade. This is great in the blazing son,... More

The experience of doing so is amazing. The grounds of this hotel are absolutely stunning. Quiet hotel!!! The water is shallow enough that you can wade across to the other side. White sand when the powder... And the peace and silence ... The outer parts of Isla Holbox offer a home to thousand of red flamingos and other seabirds... I... More

We could not have chosen a more perfect hotel. Accommodation was excellent, large and spacious with clever beach and Mexican influences. Wherever you went within the hotel staff were constantly cleaning and tending to the grounds. The food some buffet style really was good with different choices. Hotel staff were faultless - genuinely helpful. The beach and sea is a... More

Perfect spot by the beach surrounded by a jungle with iguanas, this hotel was so charming. Breakfast was bountiful, not enough mornings in a week to taste all. The chef even cooked omelettes of one's desire while waiting. The pool was very clean and all the sandy paths well taken care of. If you didn't hang by the pool, the... More

This was a wonderful place. The pictures here show only the outside buildings with ocean view, however, the the rest of the bungalows set back in a jungle setting that offers privacy and charm. My husband and I stayed here for four days and wished we could stay longer. The property is charming and cozy staying away from the typical... More

We stayed here for a friends wedding. The beaches and location are wonderful. All areas of the hotel were clean and well presented. When we arrived we were greeted by many friendly staff, checked in and informed of the facilities the hotel had to offer. We loved our room, spacious, replenished daily. The beach is out of this world I... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in February 2015 after staying at another hotel on the island 3 nights prior. Having traveled to many locations, I was underwhelmed by this resort. It was hard for me to determine exactly what kind of resort it was supposed to be- we did not purchase the all inclusive package as we... More

The hotel is beautiful and the villas are very cozy. The beach is also amazing, with great space for resting while taking a sun bath. The pool invites also to spend part of the day in it. It is a great hotel and I would definitely go back. The only detail I didn´t like is that they have some "corporate... More

My fiance and I took a long weekend getaway to celebrate our engagement, and we had an absolute blast at the place and on the entire island. Friendly staff that at least hopes to please you throughout your entire stay, pretty decent food for a rather inexpensive all inclusive rate, and great drinks (the Holbox was of course our favorite,...

Went away as a couple for our anniversary and couldn´t have been happier here. The whole ambience of Holbox is special but Villas Paraiso Del Mar pushed it over the top to make it one of our best weeks we´ve ever spent together. Great warm welcome by the staff and immediately shown to our beautiful room. Everything was spot on... More
