“great spot for doing nothing”
Reviewed July 23, 2007

My daughter and I just spent 3 nights at Villas Chimay and found it to be a wonderful little place. The rooms are lovely and the folks who run it were friendly and helpful and always available for whatever we needed .

July is hot and humid, so be prepared.

Holbox is idyllic and looks to be poised for development, so get there soon.

I stayed for my last two nights on Holbox at Villas Chimay. It's located about a kilometer from the town center and nicely secluded. It was a great contrast from staying near the town center. The resort is also eco-friendly, which is important because of its location on the island. Petra and Manfred, the managers, were very friendly and great cooks.

This was one of our favourite hotels during our trip to Yucatan ! It has a beautiful quiet location on the quiet island of Holbox, so it's the ultimate insider tip for really relaxing holidays. It was great to stay here for a few days after traveling around and before leaving back home. We felt very much at home after the warm welcome by the hosts, Dunya and Gabriel. Gabriel's cooking skills are excellent, we'll never forget the lobster! We enjoyed the georgious beach just in front of our individually decorated cabana. The whale-shark-watching trip is unforgettable. We really loved this charming place.
