If an holiday means relax to you , look no further ,this is the place.
The island is magic ,with a super chilled atmosphere ,locals are very friendly and this little hotel with its smiling staff perfectly blends with the frame.
It is right on the beach but has no bar facilities however the nearby La Palapas (same owners) has got an original Italian restaurant open from 7 am till late at night, so no big problem afterall.
The rooms are well maintained and the swimming pool small but very clean.
If you like fishing I strongly suggest a boat trip to Punta Catoche and if you like eating fish Viva Zapata restaurant or wait for the fisherman coming back at 7 pm on the beach and ask the staff the BBQ

Room Tip: I love the sea sound so I didn't mind to be on the front otherwise I will suggest you one in the...

This is a VERY belated review of our trip in April 2012. We live in France and our daughter wanted a romantic wedding on a beach; they couldn't have chosen a better place! Thirty family and guests made the rather long trip from Paris, and others from Canada and the USA, but oh it was worth it. Lovely island, beautiful hotel, friendly staff, great food; Alizee and Jeremy organized the most most wonderful meal for the reception and the decoration was beyond our expectations. We spent an idyllic week on the island and were sad to leave. My husband and I have every intention of returning soon for a vacation in this completely unspoiled place.
The Merciers.

We looked up this small hotel at a friends suggestion. From the very first phone call to the email confirmation of deposit everything was professional and easy. Upon arrival, the staff seemed to know who we were even by name. The grounds are maintained perfectly. The pool was centrally situated. The rooms impecably decorated elegantly simple. The location is off center but not too too far from downtown (5 minute walk). They provided us (without requesting it) a crib for our 7 month young daughter. They even turned on the AC prior us moving in for her comfort. The lounging area on the beach was perfect. We enjoyed one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. I cannot wait to return for another day of bliss as a quick weekend getaway for me and my family from the bustling Riviera Maya.

We were on Holbox to swim with the whalesharks which was amazing! Unfortunately that was the only good thing about our stay at the island. We were there for 3 days and it rained for 2 days. The mosquitoes were everywhere! There is not much to do on the island and when its raining and mosquitos are eating you up it´s not exactly a dreamvacation...

But the hotel was great!

This hotel is in a nice location on the beach and close to town. Grounds are superbly maintained. Decor in the rooms is first rate. But that is where positives end. Rooms, pretty as they are, are not very functional. No drawers or even surfaces to unpack. No place to hang wet bathinsuites. No safe. Only one key per room creates constant need to coordinate. Water is not pottable, which is par for the course in Mexico, but bottled water for brushing teeth was provided only first day. After that we were charged extra 10 pesos per tiny bottle. And we had to go to reception to get it. Really? You call that hospitality and service?
I came with a group and we all paid for 2 people sharing a double room. But there are no double rooms in this hotel. One queen bed and a cot.
There are no beach towels and no cushions on hard beach chairs. Very crammped feeling. Kids playing in the pool are heard everywhere. No bar or restaurant on premisses.
I loved Holbox island and the whalesharks. But next time i will pick a diffeent hotel.
