La Palapa is a quaint little hotel directly on the beach with a charming and attentive staff. The rooms are clean and simply, yet well, appointed. The food is divine. The water is "eh." The location is excellent. My one complaint is the gross dishonesty regarding a drawer of items I left in the room. We switched rooms to accomodate...

Dear Ambassador Rhonda, We appreciate your feedback and thank you for taking the time to post a comment. As we already discussed over the e mail, the whole issue was due to an internal miscommunication and indeed your items were found but not registered according to our internal procedure. Obviously this was an opportunity for us to learn from our...

Holbox is a tiny, chill, relaxed kind of place, and this property is a nice way to enjoy it. Right on the sand, the rooms face out over the ocean with lovely balconies or patios. Each room is spacious and decorated with traditional Mexican art and rough wood beams. The conch shell shower head and warm tiles in the bathroom...

After a fun, and drink filled 6 days on Isla Mujeres, we needed to place to chill out. As the Lonely Planet guide described Isla Holbox as "chiller than thou," we knew that Holbox was the spot. And Holbox delivered, and so did Hotel La Palapa. We showed up at the Hotel without a reservation (granted, this was low season)...

Stayed at La Palapa from March 26-31, room #9, which is has 2 double beds and a balcony facing the waters (though the view is covered up by the palm trees). The hotel itself is very lovely: on the west side of the island. I have to say that I really enjoyed our stay at this charming little hotel. It...

The hotel was wonderful. Great location - lots of shade and places to sit and read on the beach. Great chef in the restaurant. The island is very quiet and peaceful - great place to hide and get away from it all. Room were nice but only a few have kitchen facilities so make sure you ask before you book.

I cannot say enough about the staff at this hotel. From the reservation agent (Eber) to all of the maintenance staff (Sr. Coco AKA Eduardo), service was exceptional. The concierge (Chrystel) was so patient with me, answering question after question over email for months before our arrival. Great location, clean and comfortable rooms, excellent restaurant on the premises. Even with...
