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... More

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... More

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... More

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 &... More

We took a oceanfront studio that was huge and beautiful, the beach is 50m away and the water is just perfect.

Stayed here for 3 nights in july, and quite frankly I wished we could have stayed 3 more at least. A really nice small hotel with 10-12 bungalow apartments surrounding a pool.
