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. Mosquito repellent is...

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.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Luna bungalow (for Honeymooners). The bungalow itself was awesome, with great space and literally in front of the beach. The view was also fantastic. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Special mention for Julio and Luper. The downside: a bit away from downtown and heavily infested by mosquitoes. My wife was heavily...

After a round tour in Merida we arrived very tired to Holbox and to casa Takywara. Since our first room was kind of small we were lucky to move to a bigger room the second...

This was our second year in a row staying a Casa Takywara and it was just as beautiful and peaceful as last year. It is a short walk along the beach to town yet seems like a world away. We have explored the island quite a bit over the last few years and in my opinion this stretch of beach...

Wonderful five room hotel right on the beach. Large comfortable rooms with convenient kitchenette and private balcony sitting area. Fresh fruit, bread and jam delivered directly to your room in the morning. Julio is the consummate innkeeper and cannot do enough to insure that all your needs are met. Easy 10-15 minute walk to the center of town.

We were well taken care of but also left in peace! Perfecto! A beautiful location away from the center but an easy jaunt down the beach to get to town and restaurants. The beach was awesome and the staff made sure our questions were answered and that we were able to do everything we wanted. I woukd go back in...
