“We miss it already...and our 70 friends miss it too! THE BEST.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Simply perfect.
We had our wedding in this paradise last week (April) and it was the most amazing 4 days with our friends and family. I surely suggest having your wedding here and taking over the entire hotel so you can have all your friends close to you and organize activities during the day and parties at night. The day of the wedding was everything we expected, even the sunset was absolutely perfect! Everyone treated us like kings and our friends were very comfortable having a great time.
One of my favorite things about doing our wedding here was the high level of taste the staff has. It was always easy for me to arrange and finalize details all the way from NYC months prior to the event because i always trusted their taste, and I was right. They understood perfectly what we wanted and it all looked just like we pictured it.

As a vacation also incredible...
It is the perfect getaway if you want to be away from crowds and loudness. The food is amazing, the service is THE BEST, everyone is friendly and attentive. It's a relaxing place, dont come here if you look for crazy partying unless you bring your 70 friends along with you and organize your own parties ;)

When coming to the island i suggest to charter a plane if there is 5 of you so it only takes 25' from/to Cancun airport, it is a very convenient. If you have time though, a more economical way is just to arrange the car service with the hotel.

I love this place and would definitely go back.

My wife and I went here at the end of Feb. The room was VERY clean and comfortable (we had a Junior Penthouse) - great view!! The bed was amazing - I haven't slept that well in a long time. I was a little disappointed the room did not have internet even though there was a wireless router in the room...maybe it was better that way so we can could really 'unplug"... internet around the property was spotty at best.

The staff was incredibly attentive. We mostly experienced the wait staff and the bartenders - very, very nice people and always with a smile. I really liked Janero up at the bar - good kid!! They also brought us a sweet treat and dropped it off in our room each night - it was a nice touch.

Although went into town for a variety of food, the 2 dinners we had there were very good. The lunches were great!! We had fish tacos - unreal. The cont. breakfast was OK, but I opted for eggs with the peas and sauce, (I can't remember the name but it was very good). However, by the end of the trip I had asked them to make me a breakfast quesadilla - bacon eggs and cheese with salsa on the side - just ask for "Egg's Estaban". Overall a great trip.

As for transportation we used Holbox VIP - very good curb to curb service. Pepe was super nice and so was Roberto! Do not be scared when they turn off the main roads- they are either taking you to show you a tourist attraction or taking a short cut... It was a little nerve racking at first because of all of the stories. It's a bout a 2.5 hour drive.

Overall - a great trip.... Also - I think we were the only people from the US there, it was kind of nice:)

It's definitely a unique experience and a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: We had #25 and it was very nice. Great ocean view - at the end.

If you are looking for a spot that is the epitome of tranquility, that offers a high service quality experience and a spectacular scenery, Las Nubes is definitely worth a visit!

The beach is amazing with its shallow waters that allow for a unique "ecosystem", where you can walk in the ocean with water up to your ancles or knees surrounded by small turbots and other fish, if they are not victims of the pelicans.

Perfect place to go if you need to unwind and get away from the busy life in the city.

We had a wonderful stay at Las Nubes.
The hotel is ideally located on this pedestrian Island. The last one before the beach with the pink flamingos and the pelicanos.
You can borrow some quite rusted bikes to join the village, or take the local cab (golf car).
The receptions organizes great day trips. Whale shark tour, fishing tours and fresh ceviche made with your catch... it's really worth doing it!!
Excellent service, nice restaurant with an amazing view on the sea,
Wifi only at the reception (a perfect way to disconnect...)
I wish we could come back

My wife and I stayed here a couple nights in JUL 2012 and it was fantastic. I must set the mood; the day we checked in we had just completed a private whale shark tour with fishing and eating our catches (40 lbs tuna my wife caught) with a very nice family from New Jersey and some local fishermen on an island. Back to Nubes........ Our Capitan actually navigated the boat right up to Las Nubes's deck / stairs and we were met by Nubes staff with cold bottled water and warm & moist towels. With this type of service, I thought I was in a movie or living someone else's life. Truly first class! The female who ran the front desk / concierge was fantastic. Her name escapes me, but she was very helpful. We stayed in a "bungalow" which overlooked the ocean and was in front of the "rectangular pool". AC worked and the bed was good. It was very cool to see the iguanas sneaking around the decks. The food we had was very good as well. Now, here's where there should be some changes that Management MUST consider if they want to be considered upper notch. While we ate outside on the deck my wife saw and encountered several mice, that were either scurrying about to get scraps, and or, avoid iguanas. At first this seems to be “oh part of the Holbox experience". However, when considering these mice were not scared, but rather were aggressive, leads one to wonder where else do they frequent..I.e. the kitchen. That coupled with the iguanas and "a family of raccoons" we heard of gives major concern. I would definitely go back to Nubes

Thank you for your opinion and comments. I want to let you know that the animals that you are talking about are racoons, which are part of holbox's nature. They really are wild animals, but tourists have been feeding them day after day and now thay are used to that.

Until the moment they haven't atacked anyone. We give the advice that they are not our pets.

We would be very happy that in the end you had a nice stay at Las nubes de Holbox.

Best regards,

Room Division Manager
