The hotel and its area are quite nice but I don't stay at hotels to hang out at the hotel. I stay at hotels to get some sleep. The beds in this place are nothing more than foam mattresses. Cheap, crappy foam at that. This is my only complaint about an otherwise nice place to stay.

This hotel is right on the beach, five minutes waik from town and is in good condition. The staff is nice and you can see that they work hard to improve the place even more. The hotel is a bit basic without TV and pool, but very charming. The problem is that we could hear everything that the neighbour did.... More

Lovely cabanas by the shore. Amazing ocean view from the rooms. A perfect romantic getaway. The greatest thing is that you step out of your door and into the sand. Even though it is nothing too fancy, I totally recommend it.

Hotelito Casa Iguana is a wonderful option since it shares the best Holbox beachfront with Casa Sandra and Xaloc Resort. The beach beds are always available at Casa Iguana they're Blue and pretty comfortable. ( They are often invaded by the neighboring guests ) The Staff are very kind and willing to fulfill your requests immediately, free coconuts and wi-fi... More
