Across the board, staff is fantastic--especially the front desk crew. Grounds are beautiful and the beachfront is postcard material. Also plenty of shaded area, offering a vital retreat from the sun when needed. Center of town is steps away.

The location is perfect - right on the beach and walking distance to town. There are a few good restaurants nearby and the hotel has a small bar with lots of lounge chairs to enjoy the view. This hotel only has stairs, even stairs into the washroom so if you have bad knees this place is not for you. In...

La Palapa is perfectly situated right on the water and close to town. There is plenty of seating on the beach and enough palm trees to provide shade to those of us who can't bake in the sun all day. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful - especially the restaurant servers who kept the cervezas coming as I...

The location of the Hotel was good with a nice beach. But the rooms were dirty and very old. The Service was unfriendly and arrogant. The price definetly is not adequate, even 50% would be too expensive.

The hotel lies steps from the beach, a big priority when staying on a gorgeous white sand beach island. The flora and fauna surrounding the property sing in the wind. Bird song is filling the air when you wake up and the rustle of the palms usher you into night. You get it, it's paradise! The hotel staff are always...

I stayed here with 2 friends last January. I've been to Holbox several times and I wanted to try this hotel because of the adult only draw. The hotel was beautiful, the rooms were lovely, the views were gorgeous but I felt the staff wasn't as friendly as other places I've stayed. Not that they were surly, just not as...

The hotel is right on the beach with excellent views. The rooms are nice, I would have given it a 5 star review, but I really didn't love the shower. It has a cool sea shell that delivers the shower. It was kind of hard to really shower since the waterfall was all over the place. It was a short...

Such a nice little hotel. I preferred their beach to the other more expensive hotels nearby. It has plenty of options for shade and hammocks by comparison. The staff were so kind. Even the bath products were great. I got one of the non ocean views and our room was huge. We really enjoyed our stay and would come back.
