My family had the most amazing 6 nights at Palapas Del Sol. If you want a hotel that feels more like you are staying with a loving family, then this is the place for you. It is situated in front of the best piece of perfect beach on the island, with crystal clear water, that leaves you amazed every time...

Isla Holbox was better than I ever expected and my stay at Palapa del Sol, largely contributed to that! The hotel is on the best part of the beach, the rooms are beautiful and authentic.. The best part is the staff, which really goes above and beyond to make everyone happy and have a great experience. I stayed at two...

Isla Holbox is magical! Palapas del Sol has the best beach access just steps away from the hotel. The sand is soft, and the grounds and water are clean and well maintained. The hotel staff are very friendly, and work hard to make their guests comfortable. The rooms are very clean and spacious. We had a room with a deck...

We had a great experience in this hotel. People are so nice an attempt, they make you feel special. The beach is just a few steps from the rooms, they have food and drinks right there. We didn't have any problem with the chairs at the beach, they were enough an always available. Rooms are kind of rustic, but with...

From the accommodations to the food to the translucent blue water to the staff to the location to the price to the energy. I came here for a Melt and Bodyart retreat (revive restorative retreats) and it was unreal. Martin the manager is there...

We have gone to Palapas del Sol already twice because it is such an ideal place to host a yoga retreat. Like you might know, finding a suitable spot is extremely hard because so many things have to match: yoga space, enough rooms, ability to host a big group, delicous and healthy food, the list goes on.

We returned, sadly, last night, from our third visit at Palapas del Sol. The beach was perfect, altho fewer shells than last year...the shelling must be wind dependent!
