Our first visit to Holbox was perfect due in part to the friendly knowledgable staff at La Palapa! Upon arrival we were shown to our room, and it was not to my liking, too dark, on the second floor, with a view of the back alley. We asked to be moved and were offered the option to wait a few...

I hadn't reviewed the hotel last year when we were there, but I just read a negative review complaining about every little thing, and I thought "wait, are they talking about the same Hotel La Palapa?" I loved this hotel! The rooms were perhaps a little basic, but spotlessly clean and appropriate for the climate and this location "at the... More

We stayed at La Palapa for 3 nights. The hotel rooms themselves are average by Mexico's standards. Beds are hit or miss (stayed in a couple rooms). One of the rooms was quite noisy (Friday night) until 4 in the morning, the other room was not. The rooms are too small for 4 adults, but ok for a family with... More

I was very tempted to stay in Casa Sandra (Mawimbi was booked) when I planned my trip but the #4 rating here really swayed me. I thought why pay more for a hotel that is not as highly rated? Big mistake. The photos I saw online of the rooms were NOT what I experienced in my room. This hotel is... More

We stayed here for a night while on Holbox. The service was fantastic and the hotel really went out of it's way to make sure we were happy. They are located right on the beach and close to all the restaurants and attractions on the island.

Wonderful hotel just meters from the beach. It is just absolutely relaxing. Please note that this hotel changed to be an adults only hotel this year although TripAdvisor site will still pull it up under "family-friendly". Great location near the heart of town. The restaurant was good but a little pricey. Can't beat the view though!

Great spot on a nice beach that was beautiful and serene. The staff is wonderful and accomodating in this boutique style hotel. If you want laid back and relaxing this is your place.We had a nice size second floor room with 2 full beds and a balcony overlooking the beach. The conch shell shower head took a little adjustment but... More

We booked through Booking.com and booked a different room than we got. Of course the views were not as good as we were expecting--instead of a full-on ocean view room on the third-floor we got one with only a sliver of a view in room #25 on the second floor. Our room was basic with a king bed, no coffee... More

We stayed at the palapa hotel in June and really enjoyed it. We've stayed in holbox a few times and liked the location of La Palapa the best. Just a block from the town so no need for taxi and the beach is perfect. A great place to relax. Also seems like most rooms are ocean view as well which... More
