We had a perfect week at John and Mandy's Guesthouse. They are so friendly and welcoming, and they were super helpful in planning our activities. This is the perfect location, just the right distance from the main area of town, which can be a little noisy sometimes (but not a problem here). Right on the beach, with a large private... More

I had a wonderful week staying at Mandy and John's comfortable and quiet apartments. I stayed in one of the upstairs apartments which had a lovely balcony with an amazing view of the ocean and gorgeous, nightly sunsets. The room had both a water cooler and a refrigerator which was great when staying for more than just a couple of... More

We stayed at John and Mandy's Guesthouse for 10 nights. We were in one of the upstairs rooms. It was lovely - you can see the ocean from the bed! The private balcony was a lovely place to read/eat/watch the water and the sunsets. The room was a good size and clean. There was a "kitchenette" type place with sink/dishes/small... More

We stayed for 7 nights in one of the upper apartments and really enjoyed our stay. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was large and comfortable. It was well equipped with lovely smelling handmade Yucatan soaps. Mandy decorated the apartments with a lot of heart and personality, for example, the shower where the water falls from a beautiful...

Just got back from a great stay at Holbox guesthouse . If you need time to just laze and read and jump in warm water occasionally this is your place. It's on a quiet stretch of the beach with a covered palapa, chaise and hammock for everyone. We stayed in the 2 bedroom with full kitchen. It has everything you... More

Wow, Guesthouse Holbox Apartments is absolutely wonderful and I wish we never had to leave! We spent 5 nights there and the accommodations were fabulous! While booking the Guesthouse I had many questions and my emails were always returned promptly and provided me with all the answers I had inquired about.

This was our 2nd time in Holbox but 1st at this location. We will be back! We were treated as friends, not customers. John y Mandy are wonderfully accommodating and shared all their secrets about the island. Place is super clean and comfortable. Transportation from/to airport they arranged was flawless and on time.

This is quite a difficult review as our stay on Holbox actually did not live up to expectations and we actually left early (having booked for two weeks). The problems were not attributable to the accommodation (hence the "excellent rating), however, but due to the weather - there had already been a lot of rain, so the island was covered... More
