This quiet, well manicured and excellently staffed property exceeded all of my expectations. Want to laze the days away and listen to the waves crashing while lounging in a hammock? Want a quiet, relaxed, beautiful environment to just BE? So did we, and with the most amazing luck of another guests' cancellation, we were able to spend 3 wonderful days... More

Please don't tell anyone how wonderful Holbox and Palapas del Sol are. I worry it will be spoiled. As is, with dirt streets and no cars...just the occasional delivery truck, it is close to perfect. Best things....shelling on the endless beach, swimming in gin clear water, Martine who makes sure everything is smooth at Palapas del Sol along with Eddie... More

We stayed a week at Palapas del Sol, and we can't express how much we appreciated the service here.

If you are looking for a resort-style place to stay - pool, wifi, drinks and food on hand - this is quite nice. We had been hoping for a more rustic experience (which we had at Casa Takywara), but everybody's different. The staff is helpful and excellent (three cheers for Eddie!), the rooms pretty but simple, the restaurant quite good... More

My wife and I spent Christmas time in Holbox and given the amazing stay in a different hotel two years ago, we were thrilled to return to the island. Following the excellent reviews, our choice was made for Palapas del Sol. However, the four days in Holbox left us with somewhat of mixed feelings. On a positive note, the rooms... More

Right on the beach and away from the crowds. Rooms designed in a way to have privacy. Homely with lovely service. Honesty bar which is great - just grab what you want and write it down to be added up at the end. Arrived and welcomed with a big cold drink to welcome you.
