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

Our second year in a row at Palapas del Sol. Made us feel like family again, Holbox is growing a bit & Palapas del Sol has grown a bit as well, but still a very small intimate place with the most amazing staff, great beach & fantastic food. Ran into, unplanned, a family that we met on our last visit... More

First the only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is construction (more about this at the bottom). What makes Casa Palapas del Sol stand out from other places I have stayed are the people. Martin(manager) and Adriana(owner) were amazing helpful. Anything that was a concern they took care of it. They also were very gracious and always pointed out... More

We just got back from hosting a yoga retreat at Palapas Del Sol. This was our first time coming to Hotbox island, and for me actually first time in Mexico. We fell in love with this hotel.

Holbox is an amazing place and Palapas Del Sol is located on the outskirts of the village on a beautiful part of the beach near the sandbank but still walking distance to the village. The food is very tasty and fresh, the room are very nice and the staff is lovely. Unfortunately the place at the moment is very noisy... More

I went for a small vacation to Cancún and them decided to go to Holbox. To be honest, it was a unique experience. The hotel is very warm and the personal that work over there are very educated. The food was delicious, Estela y MaryChuy are the ones to make it happen. I decided to sleep at the Palapa Penthouse... More

Whatever is good about this hotel was negated by the very loud chainsaws and other construction noises. Either the hotel should warn people when they make their reservations or discount their room rate
