Casa Takywara was really incredible. They have thought of everything. We stayed in the Bungalow, which is right on the beach. We opened our curtains in the morning and the ocean (actually the gulf) was right in front of us. But what really sets this place apart are the people who run it. Carlos "Hanks" and Lupe could not have...

Our family had an absolutely wonderful time at Casa Takywara, both because of Holbox and the Takywara staff. Everyone at Takywara was incredibly accommodating, but kudos must be given to Carlos Flores. He simply went over the top to make our stay wonderful in so many ways. For us, this was a vacation about mostly doing nothing (or very little...

It may not be possible to adequately describe how amazing is Casa Takywara, but clearly the numerous other stellar reviews speak to what a wonderful place it is! We were here for our honeymoon and could not be happier with our choice. The staff were beyond gracious, kind and helpful. We enjoyed the perfect beach spaces/chairs (towels provided), the room...

Been here several times, and never get enough. If you are looking for privacy, empty fabulous beach, totally quiet except from birds and the ocean; this is the place! The rooms are beautiful and simple. There is only a few rooms(7 I think), and a bungalow direct on the beach. The people working there are the sweetest ever!! Bertha is...

Firstly, Julio and Lupe were amazing as was the rest of the staff. Other notable things: - ideal location - grounds were manicured each day and a lovely added value benefit was the mini jungle & river directly in front of the main building...birds chirping in the morning with our morning coffee, pan y frutas was memorable. The natural juxtaposition...

From the second I arrived at Casa Takywara I knew I had made the right hotel choice in Holbox. The accommodations are wonderful and the location is the best on the island. The hotel is directly on the beach and has the best beachfront property in my opinion. The breakfast that is served daily is an added bonus and the...

I loved staying at Takywara. I was there for 4 nights. Hotel, rooms and kitchen are nicely decorated and equipped with everything you could wish for. Julio and Lupe are lovely guys running this small and cozy hotel. They're always there if you need anything, always up for a nice chat and are caring a lot for their guests, giving...

We stayed there for 3 days. It's located a 5 min walk from the town centre which is fine if you're mobile. Very small hotel (5 rooms) very quiet. Breakfast was dropped off at our room every morning which was lovely. Room was spacious, air con was good. Nothing to complain about. The beach outside was very quiet but a...

spent a whole week, quiet, relaxing, beautiful rooms, fresh bread and fruit in the morning, just the place to recharge your batteries. The property is on the west end of the island so you have the gorgeous sunsets right in front of your door. Short walk to town, recommend Kayak tour with Meno and his son Axel.

Beach was so beautiful, few people. Lounge chairs were kept clean and organized, sand swept daily. Room was kept spotless. Short walk to town for dinners. Breakfast provided. Reception staff was very helpful, providing information. Wifi available only near office.....some mosquitoes and no-see-ums there as close to wet land.
