Holbox Dream Beach Front Hotel by Xperience Hotels
Ranked #7 of 20 Hotels in Holbox Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We absolutely loved the island and this hotel! It was a great size, which gave it a wonderful friendly feel that was complimented by the brilliant staff who work there. Yvan and Fabien were brilliant hosts - nothing was too much trouble! The location was also great - right on the beach, and a short walk to the main square on the island. Couldn't recommend highly enough, and we hope to return in the future!

My family has been going to Holbox for 8 years during our children's spring break. This is the second time we have stayed at Holbox Dream Hotel.

The hotel was recently put under a new management company (in 2013) and it is a welcome change. The new staff is warm, friendly, extremely helpful and very connected with the island community. Bottom line, we give the staff an A+.

The rooms are well kept, clean and adequate for the style and culture of this island.
Note that Holbox is a very laid back island. If you are looking for a fancy resort or a spring break party town, this is not the place.

We also believe that this is an ideal location. On the beach and easy to reach town.

We will be back!

Room Tip: The deluxe ocean view rooms are excellent.

We stayed at Holbox Dream Hotel in March 2013 with our two kids, mother in law and brother in law and family. We loved it. It was beautiful. Really nice rooms. Very clean and decorated tastefully. Very comfortable. Air conditioning and fans, and little balconies or porches. The pool was perfect. The service was friendly and very helpful. It was also located very conveniently to the town, restaurants and shops, as compared to many of the other hotels that were further away. Finally, you just walk out to the beach to take a swim or collect magnificent shells. Couldn't recommend more!

Loved this place! This hotel is small and neat!. So charming and cozy. Well located, close enough to town ( couple of blocks from convinience stores, coffee places and restaurants, bars, etc) you can easily walk ( bring a flashlight for nights without moonlight!) the beach is quiet and clean.Ivan was there at the reception and he was so attentive and friendly, truly a great host!
We traveled as a couple but just made sure that this place is ideal for bringing our toddler on our next laid back vacation trip. After visiting many beaches all over the world I am sure we will be going back to this one in Mexico... It is fun and safe for kids and oh so calm and relaxing for adults. I totally reccomend it.

Room Tip: Second story rooms are kind of more private I'd say..and you can still see the beach and here th...

First time visitors to Holbox and originally wanted to stay at Hotel La Palapa (LP recommendation) - full (semana santa), so we stayed at their sister hotel, Holbox dream - and she is certainly no ugly sister! Having now visited i preferred Dream's location, though didn't see any of Palapa's rooms. Room was at the rear, very clean and comfortable with a small balcony with sea view; it was a little noisy on a couple of nights from an adjacent property (it was Semana Santa..). The small garden and beach areas are extremely pleasant - kept clean and tidy by ground staff with plenty of loungers and a mixture of natural (palm) and palapa shades. Free WiFi if you must. Beach is sandy, shallow and extremely safe for kids. Little beach cafe next door (Palapa del Mar) sells reasonably-priced and delicious food and cold beer. There's not much to do except doze, read and watch the sun set - but then, outside of whale shark season, that's the whole point surely?
Kudos to Fabian and Ivan who were both fantastically wonderful hosts - they went out of their way to ensure our enjoyment.

Room Tip: ?perhaps nearer to the beach - our room at the rear suffered from noise from the adjacent property...

Loved this charming hotel, rooms were clean and fresh and property was well maintained. Hotel location was great. Downtown Holbox was a short walk away but far enough that you didn't hear the music and noise once you were on the property, only the sound of the ocean! The staff were exceptional, friendly and attentive and made you really feel welcomed. The property had a very 'zen' vibe which I loved - kudos to all the staff for creating such a great atmosphere. I stayed at 4 different locations on the island and this one was by far the best. Just the kind of getaway I was looking for, hassle free and laid back. This would be my first choice if I ever go back to Isla Holbox.

Room Tip: I preferred staying on the second floor, you get a nice view of the garden and ocean.
