“Great experience”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I just came back from my honey moon and this hotel was perfect for us. We stayed during 4 nights and we enjoyed every part of it. The room was spacious and it had a warm decoration, hotel staff was always kind and even managed to get me bug repelant eventhough the hotel store was closed.

We stayed under the all inclusive plan and to be honest my expectations regarding the food were low due to previous experiences regarding "all inclusive hotels" (LOTS of junk food etc) at Villas Paraiso food was great I could not ask for more: more than 6 types of salads, and no less than three options for the main course pork, chicken or beef. Plenty of fruit and great desserts.

The pool is small but if you are lloking for a quiet hotel this is it.

6 of us travelled fro the Uk
Hired private transfer from Cancun airport to ferry $140
Took private boat to Holbox costing 500 pesos which is not much more than ferry 6 x 80 pesos
Hotel was great - a million miles away from the hustle & bustle of the huge hotels in Cancun & surrounding areas. Vey laid back, quiet & friendly.
Our room, on the groud floor, was spacious with 2 queen size beds , chairs & table , fridge , television & Air con. Balcony with chairs table & hammock.
Rooms & public areas are kept very clean with the sandy pathways between villas and the beach area with sunbeds raked early every morning.
Food was good - hot & cold buffet for each meal with cooking station where chef cooks eggs/ steak / chicken / pork / fish to your preference. We particulary enjoyed the Mexican evening on each Wednesday.

Minor criticisms-
Pool is small with only 8 or so sunbeds . (we went to the beach every day which is superb white sand gently shelving into the sea)
Bar closes at 11pm. We sat a played cards after our evening meal & sons & girlfriiends would have liked to get drinks after 11pm. Barmen were good though , came round to say they were closing & brought as many drinks as required - 4 each on one occasion.

Room Tip: Top rooms have great views but no balcony, Middle rooms not as big as ground floor. Ground floor...

As we arrived at Villas Paraiso del Mar, we met Miguel. He said they had an issue with the Master Suite I booked for our honeymoon... hum... They tried to make us having a great time, they offered us a nice room in La Nubes, a all inclusive ticket for our entire stay, a golf car for four days and they invited us at their special New Year's eve diner. Fair enough !

I can't say how the rooms are, but people were really friendly, food was good, hotel is nice !

This is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The journey out to the Island makes you feel like you are going back in time. The quaint villages and untouched scenery makes the 2 hr drive enjoyable to the ferry. The rooms at the hotel are very spacious and clean. Lots of wood work within each room. The pathways are all sand thru the lush tropical gardens. The location of the hotel is an easy walk to the town. The beach is great and we enjoyed many early morning walks with no one in sight. The buffet food is very good, we were always able to find something to eat. Beach waiter service was really good and available whenever the restaurant was closed. The staff do not speak very good english but that was not a problem. We would recommend the All Inclusive as the restaurants in town did not seem very plentiful. Holbox is small fishing village with really not much there, so bring what you need in regards to any special needs. My husband and I have travelled extensively thru Mexico and this place is one of my favourite by far.
The only warning bring lots of bug spray!!!!!!

This is not a big island and not a very big hotel but it delivers in a big way for sure. We were looking for a quiet place to relax and this was perfect for us. Very close to the small local town and located at the beach. The rooms are bright and bigger than expected and super clean. All the staff are nice people and do a good job. The food was impressive and a great choice for all tastes. Loved the gardens and grounds the hotel is located on. They´ve made it real nice everywhere you look. This is definitely somewhere for couples seeking a bit of quiet time alone in comfort and true beauty.

This is a place anyone would love we were there from the 26th. through the 30th. of December.
It's a nice "small" hotel that has everything. romms are large and comfortable, beautiful grounds, excellent service from the staff. It's located very conviniently 600m from town, so incase you need anything it's only a few minutes walk.

If I get the chance I would for sure go back to villas!

Wow, this place definitely has the island feel. You realize on the journey over that you are going to be staying somewhere different, but the abundance of wildlife and the virgin beach we were not expecting. It´s really something to see. The hotel is located in a prime position on the amazing beach and is everything we hoped for. Great service, staff, food and rooms. The staff are friendly and helpful but not in your face. There are various water sports available from the beach via the hotel and I went on a fishing trip which was one of my favourite days. Didn´t get very lucky but it was an awesome experience. The town is quiet and doesn´t have much going on but with the fabulous facilities at the hotel that didn´t bother us. Would go here again in a heartbeat.
