My boyfriend and I spent five nights at Holbox apartments and it was truly a great experience. Mandy and John take immaculate care of this one-of-a-kind place and are incredible hosts. The pictures on the website do not do it justice and you will not be disappointed. Everything was clean and comfortable and relaxing with an awesome private balcony with...

The biggest mistake i made with booking this place was i didn't book for long enough. We arrived early for check in but were still greeted with a beer/wine by the truly hospitable owners John and Mandy. John gave us all the info on the property and the local area and gave us somewhere to store our bags until check...

Amazing stay at Holbox, the best part of our Campeche, Yucatán and Quintana Roo trip! John and Mandy are incredible hosts: you can see they truly care about their guests, their comfort, and they really make you feel like home, visiting a family friend or a distant family member. The hotel is great: everything is clean and well decorated, you...

We had a perfect week at John and Mandy's Guesthouse. They are so friendly and welcoming, and they were super helpful in planning our activities. This is the perfect location, just the right distance from the main area of town, which can be a little noisy sometimes (but not a problem here). Right on the beach, with a large private...

I had a wonderful week staying at Mandy and John's comfortable and quiet apartments. I stayed in one of the upstairs apartments which had a lovely balcony with an amazing view of the ocean and gorgeous, nightly sunsets. The room had both a water cooler and a refrigerator which was great when staying for more than just a couple of...

We stayed at John and Mandy's Guesthouse for 10 nights. We were in one of the upstairs rooms. It was lovely - you can see the ocean from the bed! The private balcony was a lovely place to read/eat/watch the water and the sunsets. The room was a good size and clean. There was a "kitchenette" type place with sink/dishes/small...

We stayed for 7 nights in one of the upper apartments and really enjoyed our stay. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was large and comfortable. It was well equipped with lovely smelling handmade Yucatan soaps. Mandy decorated the apartments with a lot of heart and personality, for example, the shower where the water falls from a beautiful...

Just got back from a great stay at Holbox guesthouse . If you need time to just laze and read and jump in warm water occasionally this is your place. It's on a quiet stretch of the beach with a covered palapa, chaise and hammock for everyone. We stayed in the 2 bedroom with full kitchen. It has everything you...
