Beautiful rooms, great spot on the beach, we always got a lounger, the drinks are super tasty {I started each beach lounging morning with a perfect Bloody Mary} . Everyone who worked there was helpful and friendly and the food was delicious and very reasonable. Simple fresh food prepared right in front of you. A short walk along the beach...

Husband and I planned to stay 6 nights but left a day early because I was eaten by the no-see-ums. We were in a top floor palapa set back from the beach - not much view - close to the excellent restaurant. $200/night was better rate than bigger, beach front palapas at more than twice the price. Staff were friendly,...

We just spent a week at the hotel. The staff was excellent. Access to the beach is right out the door. The town is attractive and lively and an easy 20 minute walk along the beach. They are unfortunately still in the midst of construction, which can be noisy and disruptive, but they do what they can to accommodate the...

Holbox Island is a great place to get away. I suggest you go now- the sweet part of the island experience is disappearing and soon it will be like any other Mexican vacation spot - exploited and trashed. We visited the island 8 years ago and loved it. Our experience this time was far from our original. The island has...

I stayed here during a solo excursion in October and found it be beautiful, charming and comfortable for a beach getaway. It's loaded located just far enough away from the main Plaza to be a little more quiet and have a sense of tranquility to it. The staff are helpful and gracious, the rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed...

Holbox is one of the most amazing places to visit, unexploited and full of magic. Palapas is a small hotel in the north end of Holbox, ten minutes away walking from town. We rented a room in the upper floor of a two story cabin with beautiful views to the beach. As anything in Holbox, less is more, so this...

If you are looking for a nice, quiet place to stay on Isla Holbox, this is it. They have lovely rooms, a great beach area to relax & the hotel is about a ten minute walk from town so it is quiet (but still an easy walk along the beach to town). They also have great food, excellent margaritas &...
