If you are a refugee from Playa del Carmen or Isla de Mujeres, this is a nice place. Holbox, in general, is far from the peaceful and placid paradise that people often describe. It is, in fact a little sister to the industrial resort towns of the Costa de Sol. Be aware, for instance that the picturesque "golf carts" are...

Do yourself a favor and just avoid Xaloc. First of all- the place reeks of sewage- probably because of the dirty swampy area at the entrance of the hotel. The rooms are not clean and very dark, the shower is old and shabby but the most annoying was the noise- apparently the hotel is located between two extremely noisy construction...

Not only did we not get the room we booked 4(!) months in advance - but once we settled for alternative room they offered - we realized that the hotel is located next to 2 construction areas: First is a new building being built right next to it (see attached picture, I wish I could also upload a video so...

We stayed for 5 nights at Xaloc for our honeymoon recently. This was our first trip to Holbox, which we enjoyed immensely. We were early for check in, but the front desk took our bags and directed us to the pool to cool down. I was apprehensive walking into the property because there is a walkway as you enter that...

We had a lovely laid back stay in Xaloc resort. It was great for all 3 generations and gave us a good taste of island life. For us this hotel was in a great position. It is on the beach but only a short walk into town. It is also far enough into the beach strip to walk to the...

Loved this quaint hotel, it has plenty of rooms and is a great location, not too far from town, but on a nice stretch of beach. The staff was super friendly and the food and drinks were good. We would definitively come back here. The back pool was secluded and quiet in Nov. it is the family area, but we...

We enjoyed our two nights at Xaloc. The staff was helpful and friendly, often going out of their way to assist us with food, transportation and other requests. The air-conditioning unit was overcome by the heat and humidity, though, and our thatched room bungalow was mighty hot.

Stayed 3 nights and overall the setup and installations are good, its right on the beach and a comfortable distance to the centre. Staff is also friendly BUT there is a clear lack og strong management - no standards for cleaning, no process for bathroom re-plenishment etc. This is so simple to do well and I expect a very high...
