If you are looking for a nice, quiet place to stay on Isla Holbox, this is it. They have lovely rooms, a great beach area to relax & the hotel is about a ten minute walk from town so it is quiet (but still an easy walk along the beach to town). They also have great food, excellent margaritas &... More

We took a oceanfront studio that was huge and beautiful, the beach is 50m away and the water is just perfect. The restaurants food is delicious but the place is quite empty in the evening so preferred to go out in the village, the hotel is far away by walk and there are millions of mosquitoes at dusk. The reception... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in july, and quite frankly I wished we could have stayed 3 more at least. A really nice small hotel with 10-12 bungalow apartments surrounding a pool. A short walk to the fantastic beach. 20 minute beach walk into town. Isla Holbox is stunning, a true gem in Mexico. Palapas makes use of the natural... 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.

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
