“Great start of the holiday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Holbox has a wide range of hotels and resorts along the beach. Some are very chique and equally costly. Villas Delfines is as beautiful as the others, but more cosy, and for a better price.
The villas are spacious and are equipped with or without airco. We had one without! For me it was okay. I prefer not to switch between 20 degrees from the airco to 30+ dregrees outside.
The villas and the surrounding gardens are nice and clean. They also have a small pool to cool off. Breakfast was good. However they could provide more choice. Fruit and bread with butter and strawberry jam. Some cheese or ham would be a great change once and a while.
Staff is very friendly and they bring your drinks wherever you please.
Overall a great place to stay when you want to start or close of your holiday!

Room Tip: Be aware that not all the villas have A/C

The Staff are very friendly and helpful. They assisted in getting a golf cart, whale shark tour, kayak etc. The grounds are well kept. We rarely wore shoes, because the sand walkways were very soft. The food was great and no more expensive than anywhere else. We stayed in Palapa #3, ocean view with AC. The view was great. I would recommend this resort to anyone, it is a beautiful and quiet place on a nice little Island. Make sure to bring bug spray, we did and we didn't have any problems. It also has a nice pool. We enjoyed our 3 days there, wish we could have stayed longer. Great hammocks to lay in while watching the palm trees and the ocean.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view, because laying on their hammocks with the palm trees swaying and the ocean in the...

I vacationed on Holbox Island with my family recently, and we stayed at Villas Delfines. It was beautiful! Upon arriving, we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist by the name of Juan Jose. He graciously showed us around the hotel, and pointed out some of the main attractions the island had to offer. We were then shown to our impeccably clean room with an amazing view of the island. The food at their restaurant was delicious, and made for quite the dining experience. We spent a lot of time at the pool. We were suppressed by how clean it was. We were there for five days, and the water was crystal clear every single day. I would defiantly recommend this hotel, and can’t wait to go back!

A lovely hotel at a most romantic setting. What more could you want. An ideal environment to relax and fun activities. The staff was very nice and I felt at home. A must to stay and a week is easy to maintain! Even more!

Room Tip: It does not matter which one you choose, they are all beautiful.

If you are looking for a different, quiet, friendly hotel, this is it. The beach head in front of the hotel is awesome with lots of fine sand and small waves. The depth of the water is knee deep and goes on for miles. Tours to watch the whale shark or for fishing can be scheduled right there at the hotel with friendly personell. The rooms are spacious and quiet at night. Th iere is an in house chef and she is very friendly. Walking to town is simple and close, even at night time. We met the manager who is also the owner. Ask for Manfred and he will answer your questions or help you out in any way.
