The rooms were not anything special, but we didn't mind because we were only there for one night. The rooms and the grounds were clean, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Please be aware that this is an adults only hotel! I didn't realize this but luckily they were ok with my 15 year old son. It's right... More

We went there on an anniversary trip. The hotel has a great location, 3 blocks fron downtown and most importantly, sea front. The beach although little, is pretty clean and the sea in front of it is spectacular. We had great suggestions from the staff regarding tours. They arranged everything for us and it went smoothly. The rooms are well... More

This is a an above average, not great, hotel. The room was small but clean and the ac worked. The balcony overlooking the ocean is nice. The staff was very helpful in arranging a whale shark tour and transportation. The hotel beach is comfortable and clean. Wi-fi also worked the entire trip. A generator was installed while I was there... More

The hotel is right on their small beach. It felt like a magical little private beach in the shadows of coconut trees. The decor was perfect as a small comfortable Mexican setting. The room was comfortable and charming. You can feel that they put a lot of thoughts into the details. The staff was exceptional, especially Angie, who works at... More

We stayed at this hotel the last week of August. It is a very well located hotel toward the center of town and easy walking distance to the many restaurants. The staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept. The rooms are clean and simple. If you are looking for five star, this is not. We enjoyed our... More

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
