Casa Blat-ha comes along with Holbox spirit. Simple, quiet, eco friendly but also astonishing! The rooms are lovely. You can take a nap in your hamac on the balcony while enjoying the view on the sea; The view from the top floor is also quite impessive. You can go up there to look at the stars at night or take advantage of the early morning to see the sun rising and start a Yoga class with Emily!
Geographically, the hotel is right by the sea.10 minutes away from the center, which you can easily reach using the bikes they lend you. I would definitely recommend Casa Blat - ha for a couple :)

Holbox island itself is a small piece of heaven, Casa Blat-Ha help you to enjoy it in a eco-friendly and eco-aware place. It's location isn't far away from downtown. The room was perfect for 3 persons, really close to the beach and the view was beautiful. Looking forward to go back and stay in the Casa Blat-Ha.

Room Tip: Rooms in front of the beach are the best

The location is perfect. Being a 15 min walk from the town lets you experience a real getaway from tourism and noise. It also surrounds you with more unpopulated beach and mangroves. Wilberto, one of the hotel workers gave my friend and I a nice tour along the trails. Another natural beauty to enjoy: the star-filled night sky. Casa BlatHa's roof is the perfect spot to star gaze.

We ( two girls) stayed here for the second week of July and really enjoyed the relaxed environment. Daniel, Tathiana, Emily & Co., are v welcoming and inclusive. Emily does a great invigorating Yoga class on the roof in the mornings - a great start to the day. Tathianas cooking is great - all wholesome and uses produce from their garden and their chickens. V simple place and clean - all the essentials covered!. Town is 10min walk or quick bike ride. Got to chat and get to know other people staying there too which is always nice!.

Do not usually share comments on my stays but wanted to share my unpleasant experience with this hotel/hostel.

As part of our honeymoon in the riviera maya (this was the 5th time we visit the riviera maya), we booked 4 nights on holbox in Casa Blatha after reviewing and reading the nice comments on tripadvisor. On the day we arrived on holbox and at the hotel we immediately found out that the concept proposed was actually not in line with our expectations/way of being, though understand some other people might be looking for this kind of offer. We immediately notified the owner/manager that we wanted to reduce our stay to 1 night only (and we would change hotel), however he pushed back and mentioned we should talk with logitravel and that he had nothing to do with that (we made the reservation via the webpage). I knew that in the end he would be called by logitravel so that he gives confirmation that he is ready to refund them for the nights we would not be staying, and then logitravel would refund me, so I wanted to nicely clear things out with him beforehand. However he kept on pretending he could not change anything and we had to stay 4 nights or at least pay for them, that this were the "hotel policy".

Basically the guy did not want to lose 3 nights of my stay in his hotel (we agreed to stay the first night as it was in the end our "mistake" to book this hotel :) ), and did not want to cooperate to find a customer-friendly solution to this unfortunate situation.

Anyway after a few unpleasant discussions with the owner + calls (approx 1 hour in total) with Logitravel USA (for which I had to find a phone contact myself though the owner was apparently talking to a Logitravel account manager on a daily basis), he finally agreed to let us leave after the 2nd night, but still letting us leave with the real unpleasant feeling that we were fully responsible for it.

We were stunned with the non customer-friendly orientation of the manager/owner (though yes he agreed in the end to let us leave).

Anyway this was our experience.

If you plan on staying there note:
- vegetarian/relax/green/recycling/laidback community hostel concept
- the beach in front is for you alone and great sunset/sunrise from the room or the beach (from anywhere basically)
- rooms are quite small compared to other hotels more in the center
- we did not have hote water
- no a/c
- "far" (10 mins walk) from the "city center"

--> be sure the concept they propose is what you are looking for as last minute change of plans are not welcome!

We then changed to another hotel closer to the center with pool that we like much better. I would not go back to BlatHa if we go again on Holbox.
Appart from that we really enjoyed Holbox, it is a really great/relaxing place!

Buenos días Nicolas.

Lamento mucho la mala opinión con la que se quedo del hotel. Cuando usted me notifico de su deseo de cambiar su reservación lo único que le pedi es que se comunicara con la agencia de viaje con la que había reservado y yo haría lo mismo. Entre el hotel y las agencias en linea existen contratos de cancelación así como entre usted, cliente y la agencia. De la misma forma existen penalizaciones por cancelación. Para yo poder hacer una excepción como usted me lo pedía necesitaba consultarlo con mis socios comerciales en este caso la agencia que fue lo que usted contrato el servicio.

Usted me insistía que la cancelación era reembolsable según su contrato y que estaba obligado a regresar le el dinero, lo cual era una información diferente a la que la agencia me comunicaba. De la misma forma usted creía que la reservación la había hecho directamente con nosotros y que nosotros decíamos que teníamos pisicina. entiendo que cuando organiza sus vacaciones se puede confundir al compara diferentes paginas por lo que le explique que en este caso usted había reservado a través de una agencia externa. Por otro lado lejos de negarle nada, solo el pedí el tiempo para poder comunicarme con ellos.

Una vez hecho esto se confirmo que usted ya no estaba en su tiempo de cancelación sin cargo sin embargo estábamos dispuesto a autorizar una cancelación extemporánea a la agencia para que ella a su vez le reembolsara su dinero.

Al final se le dio el reembolso de las noches que no uso, y se le ofrecio ayuda para buscar otro hotel. Su esposa me explico que ustedes pensaban que teníamos alberca por lo que entiendo que sus expectativas eran otras. Lamento que haya estado confundido con esto y con las politicas de cancelación. En general tratamos de ser flexibles con nuestros clientes pero como seres humanos tendemos a ser mas flexibles cuando se nos pide amablemente, en lugar exigirnos modificar nuestras propias políticas basado en supuestos equivocados.

Me alegro que haya disfrutado de sus vacaciones en Holbox. Y le pido que valore si la evaluación que hace aqui representa al hotel ( limpieza, Calidad precio, ubicación etc... ) o las concecuencias de las confusiones que habían con su reservación.
