Palapa so del Sol is a relaxing, comfortable, and beautiful spot to stay for nature and beach lovers. The staff is dedicated (especially Martin) to helping you in any way they can including booking drivers and tours such as kayaking through the mangroves and a trip to bird island and a cold water lagoon to swim in with a local...

We arrived to our room which was unfortunately facing a construction so we immediately requsted another room. Thankfully Maria had availability and moved us to a new king room with amazing balcony facing the ocean which was perfect. They also soon delivered an amazing bed for our daughter. The staff here are so helpful, rooms beautiful and clean, comfortable beds,... More

An absolutely perfect week at a fantastic hotel. The food was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Eddy and Martin gave us great advice (which restaurants to visit, organising a whale shark tour) and they also organised a romantic meal on the beach for us. We will visit here again.

The warmth and genuine caring expressed by the staff made this an exceptional trip. The food was freshly prepared, authentic and top notch. The whole property is cared for with great... More

My girlfriend and I have just spent 10 days in Holbox. June 4 to 15 (2016). Although there were concerns about the time of the year and possible bad weather, we needed not to worry. There was the odd thunderstorm but it wasn't long before the sun shined again and the temperature rose. Holbox is amazing and we stayed at... More

Stunningly beautiful location, great breakfast and everything was very clean. However, we found the staff to be quite unfriendly... really only the guy that was working on the pool smiled at us! Eddies mango daiquiri was amazing!

Returned after 11 months, found a different place. It had doubled in size, it went from 8 units to 15 and it seems to be still adding. We found the personal service was missing and not like the previous trip. Construction noise was also a problem not only at Palapas del Sol but also next door where they are building... More

I am a bit reluctant to leave this review because I selfishly want to keep this place a secret but we had such an amazing experience the hotel deserves the accolades. It was our first trip to Holbox after more than a decade of visits to Isla Mujeres, and Holbox did not disappoint - this hotel was a major part... More

This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. Very laid back, beautiful, relaxing. Staff made you feel like family, did everything they could to make our stay wonderful. We have NEVER gone somewhere twice and can't wait to go back next year

Such an amazing place. It's not fancy or high-end. It's a very mellow and low key place with the basics for necessities. The staff here is wonderful! It's not easy to access from the airport, but there is a nice feeling of arriving at a place where time has stopped. The inn is on the beach, and I don't know... More
