“Made me feel at home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2011

After a long day of flying, driving and ferrying Marianna was waiting for me with a kind smile and two rooms to choose from. I chose room #7. Up on the third floor, this room was awesome! It has 12 windows that open to the east. I sat up in bed every morning to admire the sunrise...then laid back down for more R and R. Service was great and the bed was really comfortable. I thought the location was perfect to enjoy the town of Holbox. The sand streets lead you past many restaurants, fresh juice and tortilla places, and plenty of spots to pick up a 6 pack of cold beer! Thanks Marianna and the staff of Hotel Casa Barbara! I'll be back!

Marianna, Ruby, and the rest of the staff at Casa Barbara were all very kind and freindly. The first hotel you will come across after getting off the ferry, Marianna was so kind as to let us leave our large bags with her, while we checked around for availability at other hotels. As most everything in our budget was unavailable, we gladly took a room here, and were even given a rate reduction. The room was large and spacious, with a huge bed. WE HAD A TOP FLOOR ROOM WITH OPENING WINDOWS ON 3 SIDES, SO THE BREEzes cooled the room. . Although not on the beach, about 4 blocks away, the hotel has a nice little pool, and nicely landscaped grounds. when we left, Ruby drove us the 4 blocks or so to the ferry in a golf cart, , as it had rained hard, and the sand streets were flooded. Thanks Ruby!

Throughout our entire 10 day vacation at Holbox’s Casa Barbara Hotel, my wife and I enjoyed the island greatly thanks to the services and attention provided by Casa Barbara. The room was always kept clean and comfy, as for the service, not once did we have to ask twice for any given thing. The hotel is at the center of Holbox so it keeps you real close to everything you might need, there’s also a great garden with a nice big pool at the hotel.
Holbox is a magical place like to visit and if you do decide to go there be sure to stay at Casa Barbara for they will assure you a wonderful time.
