This was my first time in Holbox we booked the hotel kinda last minute just two weeks before and we hit the jackpot here ,the kind of thing where you arrive, look at each other and think YES! Holbox is special, its still untouched by heavy tourism, now is the time to go, sooner than later, and this will not be our last time. *Suggestion is to go to dinner at LUUMA and also at Las Panchas, we really liked both meals there (no reservation, just walked in).

Fantastically peaceful place. Everything was great here. It's Mexico so your expectations have to not be that of Paris or Berlin but this place is fantastic. The beach is here are second to none. Internet is a bit spotty. But that is probably to be expected from an island off of Mexico

I had the most magical vacation at Villas Palapas, I really loved this place, wish I could give it more stars!!! The staff every single one of them was so friendly, happy to help all the time, and just all in all very accommodating - any request is made with a prompt fast reply. I can't say enough about them, they were on top of their game. The location is so ideal to go to the best restaurants for dinner, or little beach bars for breakfast smoothies/acai bowsl (although eating at the hotel itself was fantastic and really there is no reason to leave!). We utilized all the facilities, the beach every single day, just could not tire of the hotel. Great first visit to holbox.

I loved this place! We had a ground level room facing the ocean with a pool. It was perfect for our babies to splash around in. Everything is chic and well designed. I’m impressed by the layout of the property with the infinity pool so high up there were no children up there so it was perfect for couples. The next level down was the public pool which was never terribly busy and if we couldn’t get a lounger, we’d just go to the ocean or our own little pool. I think the choice of room here is key. The free breakfast was decent. I wish the coffee were better but I always do in Mexico. The rest of the dishes were good and the sushi bar was excellent. Overall, a really nice place to stay for families.

We made the right and best choice not only with this hotel but overall with Holbox island, it was the perfect most amazing way to celebrate our 4th year anniversary, we will never forget it. We travel a lot, at least every other month, and this was the best place we have been to in a few years, so relaxing and down to earth. All was clean, a really well laid out hotel, and plus the staff were all wonderful, I mean all! Hands down best room service , we stated 5 nights and it felt short.

Took us for ever to get here but we loved every day of our stay. Fantastic people run this hotel and my family had a very memorable vacation that we will never forget. Rooms not that large but manageable. Our little mini pool was a blessing and we loved it at the end of the beach. Everything walkable and good location. The inclusive food and drink package was a valuable add on which saved us lot of money because we spent much time at the hotel. We hope to come back in some years to come. THANK YOU.

Fantastic experience at this hotel. Just right for a week. Very comfortable beds, housekeeping was perfect, servers were so friendly and warm, food was great, drinks were great, pool was awesome and not very crowded, beach was absolutely stunning. Our room was very close to the restaraunt which was advantageous but at a couple times- it was loud and not relaxing. If we return to this hotel, we’ll ask to be away from the restaurant.

Last year we took a chance after the pandemic and visited Holbox island and knew we would return to the island but to a different hotel, and this year we chose this one. The Palapas hotel is very well-kept, clean, and pretty. I enjoyed chilling at the pool and beach with non-stop drinks and sun, the staff was welcoming and friendly. Better food than at other hotels, and one of the best locations in the area.
