We stayed here for 4 nights. Don't get a room on the street. There is a family bar and restaurant and they party until 4 am. They are obnoxious and noisy. We asked them to quiet down and to no avail. I feel the hotel should do more. They moved us and the rest of the stay was nice. Good...

Great place, but unfortunately short of bliss. Although the hotel itself does pretty much everything right, it falls victim to island development. Surrounding noise makes it impossible to sleep with windows open, which is a shame because the soothing ocean waves are literally steps away. On a few occasions, earplugs were even required to sleep. The culprits are nearby bars...

This was my first stay on Holbox and wanted to share some thoughts about the hotel for other potential travelers. Beach: This is where the hotel shines in my opinion. I think this hotel has the best beachfront area on the island. There were always plenty of chairs. The way the island is situated you don't get a lot of...

This is the second time we've stayed at Hotel La Palapa this year. Once again, everything was sheer perfection – from check-in to check-out. The rooms (our faves are the Top Floor rooms – no balcony, but you don't need one because the windows open up from left to right so your entire room becomes a balcony) have broad, expansive...

Our first stay in our 3-week trip across Yucatan - a perfect place to settle after a long trip to relax. A beautiful setting, right on the beach. We had a great room, bright and very clean, with an en-suite bathroom. The beach of the hotel is small and intimate, with palm trees that provide shade and prevent the feeling...

My husband and I stayed for two nights in mid-November and loved it! This is a boutique hotel directly on the beach and just two blocks to the entry into town. It does have a restaurant that's opened for breakfast and during the day. We found the food there to be very good and well-priced -- try their juices, they...

La Palapa was a quiet and clean budget friendly hotel having a helpful and friendly staff. The views were incredible and food nothing short of perfect. Their Huevos Rancheros and crepes were so delectable! I'd also recommend their 3 island tour which is super cheap. Nice big rooms with adorable bathroom features. I am a magnet for mosquitos and did...

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...
