I was hesitating between "very nice" and "average", but I choose very nice because of the very warm welcome of Vicky (thank you for your smile, advises,...). Positive aspects : location (in front of the see, calm location), bedrooms (small house with full needed equipment, and nicely decorated) "Negative" aspects : the swimming pool does not seem very clean, but...

Myself, my husband, and another couple arrived on 6/25 to Villas Delfines for the 2nd half of our trip (Stayed about PavoReal in Tulum for 4 days prior). We arrived and were greeted very warmly by Christine who took very good care of us for the duration of our stay- along with Juan Jose. We were helped to our bungalows,... More

We were suppose to go to another hotel, but it had exploded! Taxi drive suggested Villas Delfines. We are indebted to our driver. The service was excellent, everything sparkled. Wanted to take a pillow home with me! It was on the beach, but centrally located for in town activities. We made use of the resturant a couple of times. Can't... More

We just returned from a great week at Villa Delfines. I am surprised at some of the more negative reviews, as we really enjoyed this hotel. The bungalows were large, very clean and with proper hot water, and the first eco toilets I have used that actually work! The gardens are beautifully landscaped, and full of birds and iguanas. The...

My wife and I returned to Delfines for the fifth year in early March. Our bungalow on the beach had a great view. We were 30 seconds from the water. The staff at the desk and in the restaurant were extremely nice and accommodating. Cleaning staff did a great job, too. We're already picking dates for next year.

We stayed there for two weeks, with our kids. The hotel is an ecological, friendly place. Delfines has really nice service, and comfy rooms, though they could use some maintenance. Holbox itself is paradise, and really really good for people with kids like us: safe, lovely, and with lots of beaches and sand. The catch is if you have hyper... More

We went to Villa Delfines last year and spent wonderful time. However, this year we noted that some improvements are required to maintain the high quality. Staff is always nice, helpful and charming. But unfortunately we had rainy time and spent more time in the room that we do usually on Holbox Island.

Well, if you are reading reviews on places to stay, you are already sold on Isla Hol-Box. If you're not sold yet, well if you are looking to stay away from the crowds of Cancun, want a taste of the beauty of Mexico with the unspoiled beaches and lack of high rises, then you found your place! Paradise is the... More
